those birds on sticks broke rather quick, actually 2/3 came broken with the game. pretty awful idea to begin with.

anyone got a nice suggestion for a replacement mini? preferably from the D&D universe.

it is the fire bat from the Elemental Evil line of D&D minis.
Bonus: they come painted!

Definitely contact WotC at http://wizards.custhelp.com/. They have a good reputation regarding their board games. I contacted them about a couple missing tiles in my second hand copy of Wrath of Ashardalon, and they sent me a full set of tile sheets.

Huh. None of mine have broken, and we're not exactly gentle with them. Perhaps you've just been unlucky and ended up with a weak one?

yeah maybe. but puttint something on thin plastic stick is asking for trouble imo! i guess they are aware of the fact since those figures came packed in bubble wrap.

i'll email the publisher.

One of mine also came broken, and another is ready to.
I'll add that I am ridiculously careful with my things.

I agree, not the best design choice for the game.

My solution has been to take the card out of the deck.

They are that. Honestly, I'm surprised they didn't just mold the whole thing, base and stick and bat, outta that puke green plastic. It woulda held up SO much better if they had. Of course that would mean making a special tool for that one fig so that's probably why they didn't do it.

I got my copy of ToEE yesterday and unboxed it this morning.

Yup ... despite being wrapped in bubble-wrap one of the Fire Bats was broken.

Not only that, but one of the tile/token sheets has the paper come apart from the cardstock backing and has resulted in a tear on one of the faces of a 1 HP marker.

Not exactly the end of the world, I know. However, in the light of a similar problem with broken figures re: Star Trek Fleet Captains - Dominion, this is yet another example of poor quality control as well as a daft design decision.

Having the first three games in the series and being very impressed by the quality of the figures and all the other components, I figured I'd complete the set and get ToEE.

Too late ... when it came I saw the publisher's logo - WizKids. I just knew there would be hassle before I even opened the box. (Had I have realised it was WizKids I don't think I would have gotten the game).

Following the link provided, it seems they require me to pack up the game and send it to the USA from the UK.

Was that the case (i.e. mail it in) for anyone here?

And what's funny is I think this is the highest quality product I've ever seen from them.

Firebat was poorly thought through.
