Iv just noticed on the GW website there are two different Ork nob squads one under Elite and the other under collectables, im tempted to buy the one under collectables as it has a waaaagh! Banner but its double the price.

im just wondering are they mettle or do they just have a lot of upgrades making them expensive?

They will be the old metal ones at twice the price, methinks, only the newer ones are plastic.

personally I'd get the new ones as the kit is simply awesome.
Just add the direct only waaagh banner.

you can get a nob with waaagh banner from the collectibles section anyway.
the new kit is awesome though.

You can make a nob with Waaagh! Banner with minimum fuss using the plastic kit, some wire, a bosspole, some other bits and pieces (like severed heads, totems, etc). It will save money on buying the expensive Waaagh! BAnner mini in the collectors range. The current plastic Ork range is simply amazing, I can't get enough of it. I've built up 2600 points of Orks over the last few weeks and still adding more. I really must start painting them, heh.

The old Nobz set was one of the BNIB things that I recently dug out of my closet. :D
They are nice minis indeed, but I'm certainly glad for plastic minis these days.

The direct only Waaagh banner is an awesome model though. well worth having.

Same here from my DA army, I'm going to be adding more Nobz to my Ork army soon enough and I'll be making a Waaagh! Banner Nob from that kit and a raid of the bits box..

Not to mention the possibility of doing it the good old fashioned way, with some brass rod, paper, and glue. Chop the power tool off of a big choppa, drill a hole in, insert brass rod. Put a space marine helmet on the other end of the rod. Paint the nob. Glue some paper onto the pole in a banner-like way, paint it in a cool design. I love the new Nobz kit. Cool conversion opportunities everywhere.
