Boss Fight There Are No Limits

Boss Fight Studio has a potentially interesting proposal for fans. They are asking if there is real interest in doing a pack of 300 figures. It would, hypothetically, contain King Leonidas and 299 Spartans. Here’s what they posted:

Just out of curiosity and making absolutely no promises, we’ve received several inquiries about a pack of 300 Spartans (possibly 1 Leonidas and 299 Spartans). How many people would SERIOUSLY consider buying an option like this at a slight discount over buying them individually? They could be moderately less-expensive because they wouldn’t have to be individually packaged. It’s been brought up a lot, but mostly in jest, so we’re trying to gauge ACTUAL interest in a mega-pack like this. For this hypothetical situation, assume that the figures, individually, would cost somewhere from $15 – $25.

Now, they do understand that the possibility of something like this is almost zero. However, they got so many requests at JoeCon that they wanted to gauge if fans actually would be willing to shell out for this. Here are a few more quotes:

This would not be a wide release of any kind and probably a pre-order so that we could package as needed, we aren’t naive. The reality of it just seems like such a huge leap, so we were surprised just how many people brought it up over the weekend.

I, personally, think it sounds like a *fun* idea that everyone would love, but no one would buy… but we were curious at how much conversation there was.

Ha! That’s why we’re asking. It keeps coming up, but the *reality* of buying that many seems like a stretch to even us.

What say you? Is there real interest in something like this? Sound of in the comments.
