    Thanks for the details. At the time I posted, the gallery wasn’t loading for me. The sculpt for the Death Tyrant is clever. Definitely looking forward to seeing what the other Huges are.

    A quick Google image search turned up a bunch of Magic cards, but I didn’t see any examples with multiple trunks.

    Amen to that. There were a few ‘size upgrades’ of monsters in the move to 5th, and the big two were giants and adult dragons which both became Huge. The giants are well covered now, with plenty of Huge giants, both male and female. But not a single new Huge dragon since the start of 5th edition in 2014. The last three Huge dragons from WizKids were for Pathfinder: the Red & White from the collector sets (2013) and the Black from Heroes & Monsters (2012). You have to go back to Lords of Madness in 2010 for the last new Huge dragons for D&D. That’s over 8 friggin’ years!

    Okay. That’s my Huge dragon rant.

    As for the Cyclops, I was kind of partial to the 4e look, and underwhelmed by the MM3 version (minis that don’t fill their bases–rant for another time), but man, if you’re going to size up the Cyclops, this is the way to do it!

    Finally, is that shark a Meg??

    Wow, Grimlocks & Quaggoths? That must have been back in 3.5.

    I would also say Goliaths need more classes. Even the ‘cleric’ just looks like a barbarian.

    I agree that the Dragonborn are much better covered now, especially with the Nolzur’s line. It’s notable, though, that WK have not yet covered unpainted versions of any of the other races we have mentioned (Firbolgs, Goliaths, Warforged, Kenku/Tengu, Catfolk/Tabaxi, Grimlocks or Quaggoths). They keep cranking them out, though, so I guess there’s hope.

    Unfortunately, looks like I can’t edit the original post. I was hoping to compile a list, wiki-style. Dang.

    Got my Water & Earth Elementals yesterday. They are both truly impressive.

    While the PM issue is being looked at, here’s my list of large minis:
    Astral Giant [2/LoM]
    Hill Giant Barbarian [49/WD] x 3
    Hill Giant Chieftain [50/WD] x 2
    Stone Giant [47/LoM]
    Stone Giant Runecarver [9/UH] x 2
    Storm Giant [63/GoL] (Huge)

    Let me know if there’s interest, preferably by PM, so that we don’t keep cluttering up the thread.

    The frost giant in there was a nice surprise.

    Looks like a Large giant. Are people still looking for them in size Large? Personally, I have come to prefer the 5e Huge giants. I have had a bunch of Large giants for trade for many months, and haven’t had a nibble. Can’t seem to get rid of them.

    @badeacr, just a matter of personal preference, I guess. My main complaint about all of the flying minis in the Icons series is that WizKids have tended to scale them down when putting them on the posts (particularly with the dragons). Although I do like the detail on the MM Manticore, I feel like the body should be more muscular, and the wings should be bigger, and the new one gives me all of that!

    @Berk the Black, I am all for female versions of minis, and the vaguely feminine shape of the Fire Elemental Lord was fine, but the boobs on that particular water elemental sculpt are just silly.

    I really like the Manticore sculpt. I have not been satisfied with any previous manticore, but this one looks great!

    Just noticing that the Huge Water Elemental appears to have boobs. That raised some questions, but then I decided I didn’t want them answered.
