Oh boy, the Eldar/Dark Eldar box set is going to be 230 USD which translates to something around 34,000 yen going by GW's exchange rates. Using their recent prices for characters and units you can assume that the two new characters will probably be something around 5,900 yen each separately and that the new Howling Banshees and Incubi are probably going to be around 6,000~7,000 yen or so, you end up with a total value of around 51,000 yen. Looking at it like that it seems like a decent deal but I feel like they could've just as easily made a box set without all those vehicles inflating the total price. GW is really pushing it with these box sets lately. At least everyone on eBay will have fun with this one.

Like I said on Twitter, I think there may be more than a little bit of "GW has learned that they can produce an expensive box here and there and people will still buy it" at work here. Also, it really can't be emphasized enough that anyone getting in to a new army is still going to need to buy even more than what's in this box to play standard-sized games of 40K, so the more they can get at a discount the better, really.

(It's true that people with existing armies who want the new models will have to either get the box with a lot of stuff they don't want and e-bay the rest or sit on their hands for a few months, but eh. That's been SOP since Forgebane at least.)
Feel free to call me Dave!

Yeah, it feels like GW has been doing a lot of probing and seeing what sells. There's nothing wrong with box sets since it lowers the price of the contents on ebay and other such places but it's a bit of a bummer for that to be only source for those new models. Also, its rough for the people who aren't comfortable with ebay and don't have anyone to split a box with locally.

Overall it's a decent way to get a variety of "new" models if you've started a new army. I ended up buying Shadowspear after all, and depending on the contents I might buy the rumoured Black Legion box too. If all the factions end up getting boxes as part of the Psychic Awakening campaign it'll be pretty interesting though.

Welp, this is a thing now. I guess I'm starting my second AoS army at this rate. If anyone wants the Orgors let me know?

If no-one else has already jumped in, I'd quite like the Ogors.

Sure. I'll let you know when I buy it then since it's not going to be out for another two weeks or so.

A new Necromunda box is on it's way, complete with two gangs and 0.712% of the rules needed for the game. (remaining rules to be published in a 356 volume series).

1 gang is enforcers.

The other is an all new gang called Corpse Grinders.

Also on the way is a new Warcry faction, the Spire Tyrants.

A new Blood Bowl team.

And after the success of Primaris marines, GW has decided to produce new styles of minis for more factions.
