Spiffy. I might have to grab one this year.

Can anybody tell me where the jump jets are mounted?

That part is still being worked out. But so far it looks great.

Bam! I can talk about the Gravedigger now!

Well, the whole lance pack will be awesome.  Especially the Mortis.  It is probably one of the most unique 'Mechs done in a long while.  Huge thumbs up to Psycho on that one!

If the art in TRO 3085 didn't convince me I needed a Treb, FM 3085 definitely did. [drool]

Let's just say that it is one of the more unique pieces to come out in a long time. Whether that will be a good or bad thing to most people, I don't know. The point was to make it stand out from the standard and jumping versions from last year.  >:D

Gravedigger is the *one* 'Mech that I need for my Dark Age Era Mercenary Force. Can't wait for a separate piece. :D

1P Mortis is the TSEMP variant; shut them down and stab them in the back...
