I really love those minis, I think they came very well preserved (even though the shipping is very far) the colors on them is amazing, and of course these are minis that most I recognize from the campaigns and it's really awesome!
I'm going to start with the negative, because there's not really very much. I didn't like all the emails asking me for review before I even got the product even though you guys know exactly when it's delivered. Sending me an email stating that you fulfilled the order 10 days ago and knowing that I didn't receive it when I ordered it, still sending me emails to review a product I still don't even have in my hand, seems like a bit much and also makes me question some of the other reviews on this page. The other thing that I feel like this product was missing was an index or a key, I know some people are like well you can just look it up. Yes but you have to go to the description here on this page to get the names of the minis if you haven't memorized them all, and then look them up. It would be simple just to put a very brief description of the name and attributes either on the box or in the box with them. This would be very helpful. So that really isn't a negative just something that would make this a better product. As for the product itself, it is awesome they are well painted, they look incredible I can't wait to use them. This is not something I regret getting nor do I think anybody purchasing it will. For the product itself definitely a five stars for the insane amount of emails I received asking for reviews of minus half a star, and for no index minus half a star. Again not anything really negative, but I now will think twice before I look at any five star reviews on this page. It definitely knock the trust down that somebody could be writing these reviews before they even get their hands on the product.
I got these as a Christmas present for my fiance, so he hasn't seen them yet but I'm sure he'll love them.
I'm hoping the UNPAINTED Bells Hells and maybe even the EXU characters will come out soon, as I currently have the unpainted Mighty Nein and Vox Machina sets as well as Pumat Sols and a few others. I'm working to get a space set up for us to start painting the minis and I hope he'll like them all when he gets them.
You get a good collection of miniatures from these sets, and I have been consistently blown away at the detail and paint quality. Usually, pre-painted miniatures are pretty terrible, but I still get them because hey I don't have to paint. These on the other hand are very well painted. They are on the pricey side of things, but I think it is totally worth it.
Plus, the monster designs are so unique but familiar that I feel like you could fit these in just about any campaign setting.
I have been collecting the Critical Role miniatures, and bought this set when it went on sale, along with Set II and the Factions of Wildemount sets . The paint job is well done. Packaging makes it difficult to remove, and I have to reattach the core spawn crawlers base, but excellent quality miniatures. I cannot wait to use them in the one-shot adventures I DM. Just wish the painted sets of Vox Machina and the Mighty Nein would come available again, as I only have the unpainted sets.
