    where are the new figurines... every week they said.. it's been more than a week!

    At this rate it seems like it'd be every 2 weeks like they typically do with the crated minipets.

    Battle figurines! These are a fun new addition that will come to life and battle it out for your enjoyment. We'll be rotating these collectible figurines out weekly over the month, so make sure you get in quick to claim the first two: Pazuzu and Han-Tolneth!

    is it really that bad it takes them a bit longer to design new figurines? To me, that just means they're putting extra thought into their unique flavour messages. Sure, the weekly promise may have been a bit optimistic, but it's very easy to underestimate a creative batch of work like that on a timetable.
    Aurora says, "Tharvis, why are you always breaking things?!"
    Artemis says, "You are so high maintenance, Tharvis, gosh."
    Tecton says, "It's still your fault, Tharvis."

    Okay in the latest set of 15... I got...

    2 ice figurines, 212 credits, 2 glass cases (both Gruul), 1 vial of lucky (6 sips) and 3 talisman pieces on top of the usual gold/comms/herbs

    Majority of them opened into credits. Not sure if it's just my luck or what, but feels a little bit underwhelming compared to my first batch of globes.

    ETA: At the risk of sounding greedy, yes I'm aware that I still technically got my money's worth since 200 creds is priced at 70USD. But I buy globes for the cool shit, man :(

    I know I sound very needy, and I am! I'm very excited about these figurines. I'm a little disappointed there is only going to be six instead of the projected eight but then again it means I'll be saving a bit of money!

    MY RAINBOW IS COMPLETE.

    BOW DOWN TO THE THUNDER THAT IS MY FLOCK.

    Looking like nothing so much as a dragon in miniature, this diminutive lizard has a noble presence 

    that transforms a potential slight into a tribute to those majestic beings. Comparable in stature to 

    a small hawk, his wiry body is well-suited to the flight implied by the broad wings that flare from 

    his shoulder blades. A pale silver lighter than his shining, argent hide, the appendages spread to a 

    length twice that of his body and are composed of thin, delicate bones overlaid with an almost 

    translucent membrane. An elongated, sinuous neck rises from the apogee of his torso, supporting a 

    wedged head which features narrow, slit-pupil eyes that silently express the inherently predatory 

    nature of this beast. The collection of teeth in his maw and claws at the apex of his small forearms 

    and powerful back legs only serve to underline that message. He is called 'Vasty.'

    A winged lizard of shimmering silver looks relatively helpless.

    He has 100% health remaining.

    He weighs about 9 pounds.

    He is loyal to Ahmet.

    Example : I got the two figurines which were the only things I were chasing within the first 6 of my globes that I opened. If I hold to the rest and open them after the 20th(or next release date) will any figurines coming out of them be the next set, or will the figurines still be only Gruul and Yen?

    @Tecton @Sarapis -- will we eventually be able to customise these battle figurines? The @Seragorn fan club needs one, it's important. Complete with his bunny outfit. He will obviously win all the battles. Other than that, I could think of some denizens I'd have fun using in battles... like Tharos and Ugrach's scorpion Doodles.
