well that’s all too true barliman… Fact is that people submit – what should otherwise be considered common – figurines because the regulard range is too… slow to be released and satisfy people. So if people have some figurines they’d like to see released, they use the GF system to accelerate the process of release… but in the end, that’s not really satisfying for anybody… Either the diorama maker who needs variants, the army make who’d require several types of a same “theme”, and the collector, who will anyway buy a figurine for his collection to keep it complete though he does not like it.

Let’s look at the lossoth example : some people would gladly like a full range of lossoth, the same way some wanted a range of corsairs. It happens that the corsairs were soon to be released (which was unknown at the time of the vote) and so, it could have been a regular release. So people tend to suggest and vote for things they’d like to see released, no matter if it is special or not….
Maybe We should suggest to Mithril that future M series be announced quite some time before (providing TE accepts it) and that would help us choose wether or not to suggest something in the GF system…
Or maybe extend GF power to vote which future release we would like to see released, among a list of choices Mithril would give us. That would be a good idea.
I doubt there are any GW spies around here that would inform GW about what Mithril plans to do in order to counter Mithril and create problems with TE licensing… that would really be … childish and unproductive , as for sure all of you will agree.
Maybe this “vote” could only be accessed via the GF boards so that it is not public and require some seriousness as well as not to risk a leak towards GW.

Dear Gildor,

I like the idea very much of GF-voting what the next “normal” M-release will be :rolleyes: . This idea should be presented Lars. This could help people (like you and sometimes myself :( )not to be frustrated about how the GF works at the moment. Me too thinks, the GF would be better a place for characterfull suggestions, but all characters I suggested never ever got much support. So I was surprised, that people voted for Hillmen/Arnor knight scene and not for my beloved Earnur’s confrontation of the witch King or Rumil and Orophin.
I surely would like to see more regular M be produced, which would help Mithril getting more customers buying their figures- not many want to finish a complete Mithril collection and/or buy expensive (even rare) figures.

Another solution: normal M- range contains more typical figures e.g. warriors or some civilians and the GF- thing is changed to coting for which character figure is produced for the M-range, like the Corsair admiral for the corsairs or Imrahil for the D.A. knights ( I don’t know if this would be a good idea).

Concerning GW spies: Me thinks, that the problem is solved by the fact that TE has to prove all the releases Mithril plans an so no more debate will be there :P .


P.S.: Do not be frustrated abotu the newest future release, I think Chris will design a masterpiece of Rhudaur’s or Arnor’s last stand:)
