Fri, Aug 11, 2017: The Abominable Snowbeast is back in the Croc Store, now in resin and at a lower price!

Abominable Snowbeast

This model is one of the largest figures that we produce, nearly a pound of metal and lots of parts to assemble. We've always wanted to be able to sell it for a better price, and to make it easier to assemble, so we've teamed up with On The Lamb Games (specialists on resin production) to produce an improved model - made in high-quality resin.

What did we do differently with this version? The new Snowbeast has been remastered from Ben Siens's original sculpture, but is now lighter, less expensive, and with fewer pieces to assemble. The body/chest area has now been made into one single piece, rather than 2 parts that were difficult to glue, and inevitably ended up with gaps that had to be filled with putty. The new model fits together much easier! What's more, the resin castings actually have less distortion than the earlier metal castings. And did we mention that it is now less expensive? We're now able to sell this giant model for $59.95, that is $15 less than the old price of the metal casting.

The Wendigo Summoner model is still included, and he still has a metal body - but his horn is now in resin. Because the resin is a little lighter than the metal, the Summoner is now less top-heavy, so he'll stay on his feet when the Snowbeast stomps around, shaking the table!

The new Snowbeast is available HERE.

Fri, Jun 23, 2017: Stone Colossus

The Stone Colossus has always been a tricky model for us - at over 5 inches tall and made of solid metal, the production cost was extremely high. Not to mention, it was difficult to assemble, and more than a little top-heavy once put together. Well, at last we have found a solution that we are happy with - we have partnered with On The Lamb Games (experts at resin miniature production) to make an improved version of the original sculpt.

So what is different? The new Colossus has been remastered from Jeff Wilhelm's original sculpture, but is now lighter, less expensive, and with less pieces to assemble! We've made the feet a permanent connection to the base, and also connected the model at the waist - this means that the finished model on the tabletop will be MUCH more durable. For those who are worried about the detail, the moldmaker did a superb job mastering the sculpture, and the resin castings actually have less distortion than the earlier metal castings. And did we mention that it is now less expensive? We're now able to sell this for $49.95, that is $10 less than the metal casting.

For those who still want a metal casting, we do have a few remaining in the store, but once they are gone then the metal version of the model will be permanently retired.

The new Stone Colossus is available HERE.
