D&D Icons of the Realms: Mythic Odysseys of Theros is the second Magic themed series in an on-going line of pre-painted miniatures produced by WizKids, created as a supplement for the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop roleplaying game and its campaign sourcebook D&D Mythic Odysseys of Theros. It is similar to the first series, D&D Icons of the Realms: Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica. It was released on August 12, 2020.
When Magic: The Gathering and D&D made their second official crossover with the D&D Mythic Odysseys of Theros, Wizkids joined in with series of miniatures especially created for the setting of Theros. This Icons of the Realms fantasy miniature release comes in two product configurations: the Standard Booster and the Standard Booster eight-count Brick.
Legends walk the lands of Theros, a realm shaped by deities and the deeds of heroes. From the temples of omen-speaking oracles to the five realms of the Underworld, the champions of the gods vie for immortal favor and a place among the world’s living myths. What legends will you challenge — mighty heroes, inevitable prophecies, or titans imprisoned by the gods? Where will destiny and immortal schemes lead you? And what tales will you leave behind, celebrated in the pantheon of myths and writ among the eternal stars? Mythic Odysseys of Theros includes exciting new monsters like the Night Hag and the terrifying Doomwake Giant. Theros’ mightiest heroes also make an appearance, including Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Taranika, Regent of Akros. This set also includes several Nyxborn creatures for your adventures, like Arasta of the Endless Web and the Chromanticore!
Additional figures are available in randomly-packed blind Standard Boosters. Each booster comes with four figures, including one large figure and three medium or small figures. Standard Boosters are sold in an eight-count Booster Brick with an MSRP of $127.92 per Booster Brick, or $15.99 per Standard Booster.
Customers who pre-order a full case of Booster Bricks (4 bricks or 32 Standard Boosters) are eligible to purchase one case incentive figure depicting the legendary Hydra Polukranos. The larger-size Polukranos Premium Figure has an MSRP of $59.99 and is available only while supplies last.
Polukranos represents the ideal hydra, a beast of such size and strength that the gods Nylea and Heliod both used their power to bind the monster deep within the Nessian Forest where it dwells, growing and devouring all who wander into its territory. Polukranos is a monster that emerges when the magic that holds the pillars of the world is shaken. It is a herald of terrible times when the fate of the poleis and civilization are in the balance.
The gorgeous detail of this premium figure highlights the incredible power of Polukranos, World Eater and helps to create an immersive roleplaying game experience. It is the perfect adversary during your adventures on Theros and beyond!
