Not content to stick with traditional miniatures games, Privateer Press has announced its plan to diversify into collectible miniatures in 2008. Privateer will produce Monsterpocalypse, a CMG with over 80 figures at launch, including big monsters, vehicles, and “destroyable city structures.” The plastic figures will come in random boosters and non-random starters. A few figure prototypes from the Kaiju-themed game are previewed on the announcement page: a giant lizard monster, a giant robot, and a giant mushroom – or maybe a UFO, I’m not sure. In any case, it should be interesting to see how Privateer handles a collectible property in a market that often punishes collectible releases.
