The Kickstarter for version 2 indicated the miniatures are now being molded as single pieces. This is a really big deal for me and if this is true, I'd also like to know if all of the old teams are being sold as single pieces now as well.

I purchased a DB S1 kickstarter from someone a year ago and it came with 10+ teams and as many star players (nothing was assembled). But, for the life of me, I can barely manage to figure out which pieces go to which players! surprise It is a mess and I only managed to put together 5 of the teams so far and a few star players.

If individual players are now single pieces, I'd probably be willing to re-buy some of my teams (yes, it's that bad).

They haven't said, but it's unlikely they will spend the money to make new molds.

I agree with this assessment. I don't think mantic will be recasting previously released miniatures in the one piece board game plastic. This is an expensive process. I think it's a safe bet that what has been released already in restic will stay in restic.

Did you buy off ebay? I sold a set on there, kickstarter set with all teams, some in both metal and plastic). Wish I hadn't sold it. If it's the same set I'd buy it back if you don't want to assemble it all!

Mantic has already updated several teams from the firat edition to xtreme. With the walking dead, star saga, dreadball 2, etc, I actually think they will redo each team with single cast minis (ot multicast, but preassembled).

I did buy it off ebay (no metal pieces though), but in the end I managed to get all the teams/players together (with a couple extra arms/heads laying around). It was like a graveyard puzzle. I'd like to keep the teams, though. Sorry!
