Lava Elf Promo's

Curious on these. Besides tournament wins is there going to be any other ways to pick up those promo's?

For what they look like to those that haven't seen them.

They look just like the Normal Lava Elves but with a mat Black Wash over the whole die with Black instead of White icons.

Those are not promos. They are raw (nearly) dice straight from the rebuilt mold for Lava Elf rares. Go to this topic to see the whole (sorry) story: http://sfr-inc.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4466

How are the unfinished lava elves related to the misprint lava elf story? Were they made as the result of a test run to make sure the mold was fixed properly?

Yes, they are the test run after the mold was fixed.

It was one shot of the mold. So we got 14 of each rare.

Excellent, I'll start praying to whatever dice god I need to then to pull the unicorn I need from the new starters and the beholder and lurker from the new lava elf packs whenever they both hit the site. Or you know add to my horde of Satyrs and Hell Hounds. Smile

They are from that same order, but that was an order of about 5000 kickers.

We haven't seen a misprint in a while though one rotated icon showed up at Gencon last week.

I suspect that the entire batch wasn't 'tainted', but we have no idea how much of it was or which kickers were boxed first or last.

So if you buy from us today, there is a chance.
