It's frustrating that they won't at least finish the Companions, even if they're designed off of the game.

The good news is dst has the rights for dnd toys too. Maybe we'll get some cool toys from them.


Or could you imagine Warduke from Super7? That would be a dream come true... i've made so many custom Wardukes (3D printing, Boss Fight Studio, ect) that I would be happy with a new official release.

I believe DST has the rights for the WizKids miniatures line only. Maybe if Drizzt was not an exclusive the line would be a success now. I love the figure but I’m very disappointed with Hasbro.

When Drizzt was announced I was thinking this was going to be like Classified Snake Eyes 00 where they show off the most popular character first and release him as a deluxe figure, then introduce the entire 1st wave after a few weeks. Kind of strange they haven't announced any plans for future figures for months now. I can't imagine they are just going to do a one off D&D figure.

I see D&D in the list of brands for PulseCon, so hopefully we'll get some new goodies.

If they do D&D animated series figures I’ll pass on Cosmic Legions so easy.

Maaaan! Give me D&D animated; give me the old AD&D figures like Warduke, Strongheart or Ringlerun. Hell, give me Auric, Khellek and Tirra from the old comic book adverts. In fact, the only characters I don't want are characters from the novels like Drizzt, 'cause I never read those books.

I'd even buy generic D&D figures like "Dwarf Rogue" or "Mind Flayer."

Heck, if they’d market their Star Frontiers property as a line, they could even try to compete with Cosmic Legions. Nothing against CL, but a line of Star Frontiers figures would be cool to see.

It’s not Hasbro, but NECA shared a tease with the hashtag DNDCelebration:

Man, that's a blast from the past. I don't like its chances next to Fantasy Flight's Star Wars stuff and Paizo's Starfinder, though. That's a crowded niche already.

Well, the Neca/Wizkids stuff looks great. Let's see if Hasbro follows up with something.

Do we think Hasbro has abandoned the D&D license for now?

I have a no 7 inch figure rule to my collecting (for the purposes of my wallet). The only exception is for those figures that have a close to zero chance of ever being made in 6 inch.

I really would like a Dragonlance Companions lineup... Caramon & Raistlin Majere, Flint Fireforge, Kitiara, Sturm Brightblade, Tanis, Tasslehoff Burrfoot, Riverwind, Tika would make a great start.

As a lifelong Dragonlance fan, I support this notion.



I really wish Hasbro/WOTC would make some kind of statement on what their damn problem is. Like.. you OWN this property. Why did we get one random figure and then nothing else, while a totally different toy company is announcing product? The [email protected]#$, WotC?
