Now he was praying because the Witches' Sabbath was drawing near. May Eve was Walpurgis Night, when hell's blackest evil roamed the earth and all the slaves of Satan gathered for nameless rites and deeds. It was always a very bad time in Arkham, even though the fine folks up in Miskatonic Avenue and High and Saltonstall Streets pretended to know nothing about it. There would be bad doings, and a child or two would probably be missing.
-H.P. Lovecraft, Dreams in the Witch-House
In the small Massachusetts town of Arkham, mysterious strangers lurk in the streets, dangerous cultists plot to awaken the Ancient Ones, portals to other dimensions release hideous creatures that bring horror and madness into this world... and only a handful of brave investigators stand before the dread of the unknown.

I placed my order when the set was out of stock. Only $0.92 difference between ordering them individually and as a set. Even without a discount, I consider $3.99 a good price.
NOW that these have been released, anyone know the size of these things? Are they about the same size as 28mm RPG minis? 25mm? Or larger?
I bought all of them in Essen this year, and they do look good.
The figures are nice, I picked up a few for my wife when I was at GenCon. I like the complete set, but I admit I'm a little disappointed that there is some sort of discount, even just a small one, for buying the complete set. It divides out to $3.99 per figure, which is the individual price. The only thing you're saving is the shipping for multiple orders, although I guess that depends on what the shipping for the complete set is.
As it stands, I expect I'll buy a few at a time instead rather than doling out a lot of cash at once for the Set, since there is no additional incentive.
nm, looks like it is bouncing in and out of stock
wow.. how is it that the complete set is already out of stock...
vogless, they are listed as 'Premium Edition' (rather than 'Limited Edition') when you the 'Fantasy Flight Collector' link in the page above:
"While these high-quality products are manufactured in small quantities, they can be reprinted based on demand. Professionally painted miniatures, expertly sculpted resin statues, and other games and gaming accessories make up this category. Examples include our full line of painted Arkham Horror miniatures and the Dust Tactics Deluxe Edition."
Oh man... roleplayers are going to eat these up. Thank you so much!
So, are these indeed limited editions?
