An unboxing, and what an unboxing it is.

(Templates!)

That... is a very deep box. "Most expensive boxed game they've ever done," though - some political capital is going to have to be built with Fort Knox at the Laurence household.

While it's true that the old plastic beetleback titans are best described as "hilariously small" and/or "extremely ugly" next to the new ones, the answer to that question is "something like 20". :lol:

Yeah, I think that price tag is going to enable me to stick with crusty old Epic, purty as the new warlords may be.

The core box is 40,300 yen on Ring-tail. 8,100 yen for the book and 15,000 yen for a Warlord.

Yup - 175GBP looks to be the official retail price. Sadly it pretty much prices me out of the game - to be quite fair, the warlords are almost knight-sized in the end, but a game based around playing a maniple of 3-4 titans plus supporting knights, where a single titan costs 15,000 yen, ends up being a sum of money I could get a lot more hobby bang for invested elsewhere.
