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?

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.

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 :wink:...) 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.

Yes, I'd likely buy at least one. Plastic sprue blind bags would also be appealing, especially if they did some more 'special' sprues like their vehicle command sprue.

I love these things, they are pretty common in Japan with action figures and such. I think it would be a nifty thing for them to do and if priced right makes great impulse buys.

No, GW wouldn't be able to do it properly, I'd be worried that they charge £15-20 for one of these "blind bags" and sure you MIGHT get an awesome model like a unique cypher, but you might get a single unique guardsmen who's only unique feature is that he has a purity seal on his knob.

If it was pocket money kinda stuff of £3-4 then sure, but greed means that would never happen

It all depends on the price of it. Over here in NZD you'd be looking at probably about 30-40 bucks a bag, I an't shelling that out unless I know what I'm getting.

That's just so... wrong.

How'd that turn out? Just curious.
