Default 40K BLIND BAGS would you buy them?

for those of you not familiar with the idea its quite simple, a blind bag is a foil packaged product that would contain a model from a collection, that model might be common or rare but the idea is to collect a series of models. its a little like a MTG booster pack or baseball cards or lego minifigs.

so IF GW did a series of 40k blind bags containing a range of exclusive miniatures(all useable in the game) would you buy them?

How much would each bag cost?

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

I voted for depending on other factors. If the blind bags were specific to an army, say sm or csm then maybe I would buy one to try and get a limited edition model. If it was more random and I could end up with a Dark Eldar or Tau model which wouldn't be of use to me than I wouldn't take the risk.

Same thing with me. If I had the choice to choose base army that I bought for, then it could be very interesting.

depends on the other factors
if the bags were specific ( elder , SM,Necrons etc) then probably I would ( depending on how good the rare,s are ).

If it was pot luck , no considering what single blister minis cost im not wasting a tenner on what could be completely useless to me ( and something like that , with the chance of a rare figure aint going to be less than a tenner is it ) .

Safest bet in my book would be to wait until the contents of said "Blind Bags" (Oddly enough, also what Zion calls his female friends ...) inevitably show up on eBay...

I dunno about blind bags, but when GW did offer grab bags ( 20 random 40k or fantasy battle miniatures for$20.00) I bought a few.
