I was pleased to see Forbidden Planet list this Ultra Pro Dungeons & Dragons: D20 plush dice bag on their pre-orders this week.
I’m based in Scotland, and following tabletop games news as often I do means I’m used to the disappointment of “new release” indicating “available in North America”.
Ultra Pro and companies like WizKids are like that. It’s tough to find out what their schedule is, there’s a buzz with any new news, but it may or may not apply outside the States. Why? It’s challenging to coordinate all these physical, not-book items and logistics while earning enough money to pay the rent. Coordination with bloggers wanting news is, clearly, secondary to that.
I find that the dice bag caught my attention, but there are others.
Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Mochi-Kami dice bag
From the new Neon Dynasty range and available in the UK from 1st of January. This plush is a dice bag, too, but as Magic: the Gathering players, you could use it for coins, tokens or the souls of your defeated enemies.
Heavy Metal: Feywild dice (copper & green)
These are expensive dice, and Feywild has been out for a while but there won’t be on the pre-order for long. The expected release is the 31st of December.
How heavy is this metal? It’s a zinc alloy, the same as the Heavy Metal D20 sets to use. The box has the typical gamer set of D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20 and D%.
I was looking at Forbidden Planet for two reasons; I’m an affiliate and because they do list their pre-orders nice and early. In the interest of fairness, there are other UK sites you can get Ultra Pro from. These include, but are not limited to, Zatu Games, Travelling Man, Magic Madhouse, Chase Games, Games Lore and 314 GameStore.
Forbidden Planet’s pre-orders show that while there is a lag at times, successful Ultra Pro products often get international shipping. The Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Mochi-Kami dice bag shows that it can be for the very latest ranges too.
