What if these sculpts were available for re-use?

Check out the miniatures in this link, and then answer the poll question:
http://havok.wikia.com/wiki/Havok_Wiki

Adding Comments:

What if the molds for the miniatures from this game were in the hands of someone connected with Hasbro?

What if the bolded part of the following quotation was true?

"Quite appart from collecting all things Clixy, I also am trying to complete my figure set for the game listed above - ie HAVOK, which was a Table Top pre-painted 28mm Sci Fi figure game, made by Bluebird Toys (later bought up by Hasbro) in about 1998."

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE SUCH MINIATURES FIND THEIR WAY TO HEROSCAPE?
 
What if the person who designed Havok Skirmish was one of the original Heroscape designers?

What if the following information found at a blog site were true?

..Also, I'm trying a different tactic for information, have got my hands on most (I think) of the Havok preview comics given away with 2000 AD and have made some headway in finding the creators of the game. Shall message them and see if anything interesting comes back.

...Chatting to the creators is going well. Shall hopefully get a 2nd reply before I reveal much more, but the guy I'm chatting to seems pretty friendly and open about the project.

...I haven't got a second reply from the creator, though he confirmed it was discontinued as a product but that he still holds the rights to it. If you look at Dark Realm Minitures/ there are definitely some similarities. As for the models, he says he still has all the molds, back stories and concept art, though it's somewhere under 12 years of work. He said he would did it out sometime soon and fill us in on some info. Guess its just fingers crossed time for all that.

Isn't it great to dream about having more science fiction based Heroscape units?

Re: What if these sculpts were available for re-use?

I'm sure we'd all like to see more Sci-Fi units.

Would we all like to see another crossover game license? I don't know.

And this is just...a phenomenal amount of what ifs that I'm confused. Are you trying to give info on a very possible outcome in the works, or are you just picking a particular minis game with some A to B connections with Hasbro and hoping it could happen?

Also, I'm not clear if your poll is asking if you'd like to see *these* sculpts in HS, or if you'd just like to see original sculpts designed like those ones.

Re: What if these sculpts were available for re-use?

Great find and looks like it might have been an interesting game. I noticed the bases looked very similar to the classic heroscape base. (The more lines of minis I look at the more I find larger than 1 inch bases, but heroscape bases were switched to be "more in line with other minis games". More in line with D&D you mean.)

Anyhow, it seems this is a nice daydream sort of thread. Unless you have some other information about a move from WOTC/Hasbro to aquire this game, and its minis/molds. The minis do seem of a lesser quality than classic heroscape, but they would still work. Given that the game has been out of print for about 12 years now Hasbro could aquire it pretty cheaply. Granted, we all want new sculpts. However, if this move was made it would do several things. It would give us sci-fi at a time when the prospects of getting anymore sci-fi look bleak. It would also help to aleviate the fear that heroscape is becoming another D&D game.

Nice find.

72 tournaments. 173 - 142 - 1 overall record. 6 tournament wins.

My goal, play every official 'scape unit in a tournament at least once. 149 down, 55 to go!

Re: What if these sculpts were available for re-use?

Interesting, though I can't imagine this would be done unless the old molds still existed.

From the info you've collected it looks like they very well may still exist, though at the same time (not that I know anything about the process) will 12yr old molds work with today's machinery (again I have no idea about the process)?

On the surface this seesm like a lot of time and money would be spent to get it up and running again when they could just as easily spend the cash on new 'classic' sculpts/molds (assuming the cost lines up).

One word responses, and then the reason.

Q1: Are you trying to give info on a very possible outcome in the works?
NO

Q2: Are you just picking a particular minis game with some A to B connections with Hasbro and hoping it could happen?
YES

Earlier this week I was talking with some friends about creating customs with the miniatures from the other game Havok--like I did with Battle Ball miniatures back in 2005, and they all thought it would be cool if WOTC could actually release them (if these miniatures were available for Hasbro use). Since they have already been made, then they might be a cheap avenue for more units--such as the switch to using old-already-sculpted D&D units. I thought the same thing at first too, but another person mentioned how there are probably reasons why these miniatures have not been used in HS already. Therefore, this all became waht if...just like the old Marvel comic line.

Re: What if these sculpts were available for re-use?

I'd think with a repaint the Pteravores could be Marro units(the one race I've been missing heavily).

Though it is greatly too bad HS never got these before WotC came along. They'd be nice, maybe...
