I believe the minis list is confirmed, but not the specific models/reposes you list? I think that’s what you mean, but then you have them all listed together implying it’s all confirmed. Just want to clarify before somebody gets upset they don’t get exactly X :).

Yeah. Specific variants are guesses based on the appearance of the prototype minis.

My understanding is that a CGL staff member confirmed which minis were exactly the same ones from previous boxes (the ones labeled "repeat").  You're right, the variants may... vary.  We've seen prototype photos of the non-repeat minis, and the variants listed match the weapons loadouts shown, e.g. the Archer appears to have large guns on its arms so it's probably a variant with arm large lasers.  The Atlas is the only one that I don't feel confident about.  I think it's been said (by staff) to be the stock variant but slightly reposed.
