Are there any other classics that IWM will be able to release? Locust, Thud... Maybe a Wolverine or Griffin??

None are in the 4th quarter, at some point in the future they could be.

Reason I said what I said Phobos is that none of the parties can comment . . . heck, they could not even say such things were holding up CM Davion or its why the Wasp et al got pulled or put on hold.  Which is why I was wondering if non-Macross/Robotech Classic designs would still be coming out or if they went all the way back to not touching any of them.

Thanks Speck, so the one per quarter was blown out of the water then.. oh well. Guess that means more time to build up the Shadow Hawks in my various battalions.

Already bought some, but they are light on combat power. For a heavy hitting 8/12 design I prefer the Mongoose, but they are hard to justify (in numbers) in a 3025 unit. So most light lances stick with 6/9 or 6/9/6 units which there is a much larger number of.

You might use some Jenners instead, since Jenners should be quite common even outside Kurita-space (even if they are only 7/11/5). Especially since Ostscouts are supposed to be scarce, too  ;)

Yeah, I have a fair amount of upside down toilet bowl mechs. Mostly in plastic though, but they look the same as my metal Ral Partha Jenner

Yeah, Jenners are Kurita-Mechs after all.

They haven't announced the Q4 releases yet, but the list has been settled. Same as the GenCon stuff, but they are waiting for the sculptors to finish and/or casting to finish what came in. That's the last I heard from the business side about 3 weeks ago...so I'm sure things have changed a bit on the GenCon stuff (i.e. sculptors could be done).

I'm sure Speck will post a list soon since GenCon is what...roughly 3 weeks away.

A completely new sculpt. Based on a variety of sources, it is the definitive cougar.

Interestingly enough, the original cougar actually used the legs and arms from the first sculpt of the puma.  Only the torso was new. This one is completely new and much, much better than the current 20 year old sculpt.

Be interesting to compare them . . . was just looking at my Adder and the ERPPC arms on it are kind of scrawny and disappointing.

I looked at ordering some Adder arms for my Pouncer b/c I was not a fan of the arms with it I had not put on yet.  I might look at the resculpt or perhaps check other arms but the Pouncer has a weird arm attachment.
