Liam's right. The mech is a Project Phoenix, and the other is a battlesuit unrelated except by name. Both have absolutely zero effect on any suits, and are not cause for any worry.

Thank you. Then I will wait for my beauty.

Because the legal action that will resolve this mess one way or another isn't set to begin until late next year.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Alright . . . the Marauder . . . well, the arms do not look like the art for the -7D.  The gun pods on those arms are great for the original and some of the other models however.  I do like that the legs are not as stork-ish and the length of the body has shrunk a bit, the cockpit does not project as much.

So the Lance Pack info disappeared off the release page- I know it has a Uziel, Marauder 9W2 and a Enforcer but what is the other design.

What book is that from?

The Anubis and Avalanche look fantastic. I might have to pick up multiple Anubis just to torment Hellbie.

Are the arms for the Wendigo and Avalanche interchangeable like the MW:DA versions?

I do not have a measurement on it, but is on a Battleforce Hex base.

I have no idea how big a Battleforce base is. Got any measurements for that? :)

To all the sculptors involved: nice work everyone!  ;D  Gonna have to make a MW4 lance with the Uziel at the head of it  :)

Thank you. Then I will wait for my beauty.

HB:HL, in the colour section.

Oh, I know that one . . . and I think its a nice image . . . but that is a -9S . . .

Actually, it's a -5L.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. That's cool. Nothing is going to please everyone. We had an opening to try to do something cool with a small opportunity when other plans went to crap, so we did.

Oh, I LIKE it better than my 9S, fixes the stork legs and other things . . . but I was interested in seeing the different style weapons pods for the -7D, the tri-vaned ERLL arms.  The body & legs are spot in . . . lol, and I have a good idea where those arms REALLY come from . . .

Just use the tri-arms anyway. Unless there's a really big difference in how they connect, it'll be a quick swap.  And if there is a really big difference, I'll be a bit of cutting and a slightly less quick swap.

Very nice new sculpts! I'm getting some serious Mechwarrior 4 Nolstalgia, especially for the Uziel!

Essentially the same as the -5R/-9S, plus whatever was needed to make each variant. Consider the -5L a lesson learned.
