Between jamesbarrett and myself, we have a ton of Mage Knight figs, bought in bulk at Dragon*Con last year because they ranged from $0.25 to $1.50 each and we could pick exactly the ones we wanted. We didn't buy them to play Mage Knight with, mind you -- we bought them for D&D, and they've been a very valuable investment.
The set I bought yesterday, I bought just because the "Pyramid" line looks so damn cool. And, true enough, the figs I got were very cool indeed. I've already come up with a sinister and evil way to use them once we start gaming again.
praeriedog gave me the D.C. Comics Heroclix starter set for Christmas; I assume the Mage Knight rules are comparable if not identical. So maybe one of these days I'll break down and actually play a game of Mage Knight.
