Resident Evil 2 – Production Images

Posted by SFG Giblin (Collaborator)

Hi Survivors

Welcome back! We had a great time this weekend chasing players through the RPD Building at SteamCon US, and we’re delighted to say that several managed to survive! Thanks to everyone who came to see us at the convention and made time to hang out playing games. You made our weekend.

As promised last week, this time we’re back with a host of images from our production partners, showing your copies of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game as they’ve been picked, assembled, and boxed.

 And not just models either…

 We’re sure you agree, these are very exciting to see! And we have another incoming a little further down…

Survival Horror and the Malformations of G

One mystery box that we’ve seen people talking about is the enigmatic Survival Horror expansion. At this stage we’d like to both clear up some confusion we’ve seen online about this, and to put peoples’ minds at ease.

The Survival Horror expansion is the retail name for the expansion that includes all of the non-Kickstarter exclusive stretch goals which you guys unlocked during the campaign. It includes the survivor models and cards for Ben Bertolucci, Annette Birkin, Sherry Birkin, Marvin Branagh, and Brad Vickers, as well as the PvP characters William Birkin and Brian Irons. It’s also home to the models and cards for the Giant Spiders, Ivies, and the Zombie Marvin and Zombie Brad mini-bosses. Rules for including all of these models in your games as well as Hard Mode, the Survival Horror Campaign rules, and the PvP Scenarios can be found inside a booklet included in this expansion.

Now we know that a healthy amount of you are collectors just like us, so don’t worry – each Survivor Pledge will come with a copy of Survival Horror in full retail packaging, so you’re not missing out on anything!


Next up, Malformations of G. As you guys can see from the image above… there are two boxes! Malformations of G presented backers with incredible value at Kickstarter, but when it came to retail, we wanted to revisit the expansion. Having an expansion which would likely come close to the cost of the core box wasn’t ideal – especially given that new players would also need to pick up a copy of the B-Files expansion in order to play the Birkin Stage One upgrade.

Our solution was to break up the expansion into two. This allowed us to present an affordable option for new players or backers who missed out on Malformations of G during the Kickstarter, and for these players to ensure they had the necessary expansions in order to play.

Once again, if you’re a backer who selected Malformations of G during the pledge manager, don’t worry – all backers who purchased the Malformations of G expansion will receive a copy of both Malformations of G, and Malformations of G: The B-Files. These two expansions contain exactly the same components as when the expansion existed as one box, so you’re not missing out on anything.

As gamers ourselves we’re very aware that we want Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game to arrive with you looking the same as it would if you purchased it from your local gaming store, rather than in an anonymous series of brown boxes. For us, that means including everything – from the models, cards, and tiles right down to the vacuum-formed trays and pretty boxes you’d expect.

But, of course, you’ll all have something else extra…

 
Until next time!

      But half of the products aren't in pretty boxes and sure they're not brown, but they're white.. and not very sturdy.. with no artwork. Those like me who went all in for a complete pledge for hundreds of dollars expecting exactly what you say above.. now have a mix of quality across the product line, with 5 boxes made well and sturdy with game artwork, 2 with game artwork but made with a really thin card that has already begun bending being boxed with all the other produts, and the other 8 boxes made with thin white card and no artwork. I must say I was quite disappointed to find this upon opneing my huge parcel before I even opened up these boxes.. :(

      Tomorrow, we will have more « production images »? 😊

      I’m very impatient for the « shipping update »...
      I hope for « late october »... because between this week and the next; we are at october’s end... 🙂

      is it just me or do the mountains of zombie minis just look like a crate of mince? I wanna cook a bolognese now :D

      I have a very vague memory of this kickstarter, which feels like I have signed up for it years ago. Is it done yet?

    9. Hector Meza on

      I been wanting to change my shipping address but I have no response from you guys... i moved to another address :/

      @timothy spot the guy who only bought the Dark Souls base game. The extra content has been chock full of shitty mould lines, ill fitting parts, bent weapons, low detail sculpts (looking at you Sif) and other problems.

    11. Orange Boy on

      People complaining about the minis being treated poorly in sorting probably haven’t seen too many production photos. They will be fine.

      I love this update. I love that all the boxes will look so nice and not just be “here are the SGs in a plain box.” thank you SFG.

    12. Timothy on

      A few bent minatures is better than crap sculpts. Look at walking dead no sanctuary. They were bent and crap at the same time. Dark souls minatures were awsome. I’m sure these will be too.
      I don’t blame them putting them all in a crate, there not resin fine cast or something. They have a huge job to do getting all the nearly 8000 pledges ready. I don’t have a problem with it. Can’t wait to receive the game.
      If the minis are a little bent, run them under a hot tap. Easy.

    13. Some furf on

      Yeah, just throw the models in a big pile like that. It's not like you've ever had quality control issues with parts being bent or anything.

      I take such careful care with my things, especially my board games, that i can't help but giggle a bit when i see how careless they are treated before i get them into my hands. Like, i refuse to use baggies for anything, and here are 5,000 miniatures in a single crate. lol

      I love it

      I never thought there would come a day when I was excited to see a photo of tiny plastic doors, but there you go

    20. Picone on

      @OwenMayes yes you are right. Sherwin just said it on the Facebook’s post... 😉

      @Dennis I think the something extra is just the Kickstarter exclusive figures I don't feel that they were hinting at anything although if they do give us a vested sherry as a surprise that would be amazing.

      Recognize the sticker with “Resident Evil” in Chinese characters. :) Wonder if it will be shipped to me directly from China when ready? - From a baker in China

    25. Acrid on

      So there's a 'B-Files', a 'Malformations of G' and a 'Malformations of G B-Files' expansion?
