Update on ordering individual new models in repacked boxes: https://www.wyrd-games.net/special-orders?fbclid=IwAR3c1dt6-YC3fckQ7ARkNVaEj8l7fT135B_2xB4DdJHIpCEFZAvYBJ7sy-k
For now, only three sets will be available fitting these criteria:
( Order Initiate x3 (Available until 09/2020)
* Elijah Borgmann & Firebranded x3 (Available until 09/2020)
* Good Ol’ Boy x3 (Available until 09/2020)
These will be orderable from your LGS
Also, M2E boxes will be carried on the webstore until August 2020 for people willing to grab what they need before they get rebundled or discontinued.
It may be wise to wait until Black Friday or Easter when Wyrd has free addons if you order certain amounts.
I understand why they're doing this for logistics reasons. They're providing this service in order to not upset older players while still repacking current sets in order to reduce the amount of SKUs stores have to carry. However, there has been some talk about the controversial choice to not allow people to buy new model profiles if the rest of the box contains old profiles with resculpts. Notably boxes like Lucius's Agent 46 might become a problem with players having to buy the entire new box of resculpts just to obtain one model. Additionally, there may be future issues going forward with boxes such as Nekima we know is getting a resculpt; some people have all their old Lilith crew models and can just run Nekima easily except for her totem
. With the Nekima box getting resculpts, the totem technically doesn't qualify.
Personally, I'm fine with this as I'm only looking forward to the Burning Bridges box contents but I already have a Fire Golem. This also allows Wyrd to rearrange box contents at will which might be better for everyone down the line. But I understand that there may be others out there forced to buy a $50 box for a single model just so they can make their Nekima crew function.
