EDIT: You did!  Disregard.

I like that a lot.  What pieces?  Looking at the model, I'd say feet, legs, hips, torso, and arms?

Yep, exactly that.  And maybe some covers for the Missile Launchers combined with a CT laser piece so the B config can be done as well :D

That's the beauty of 3D printing and owning the model.  I can pre-pose the miniature any which way I like.  As such, the exact way those arms are posed isn't possible without a jeweler's saw for the final mini.  The arms are straight by default for the IWM mini.

As a cool tidbit, the arms themselves are actually 3 pieces each and the legs are 2 piece in the 3D model, I just had to combine parts for the final mini so people could actually assemble it without throwing it into the wall in frustration  ;D

I'm hoping this trend in redoing some of the older mechs continues. I have the new uziel , stalker 2 , highlander and many more of the recent sculpts and their looks and size show a attention to detail that has me buying mechs again .

I don't get the Bellerophon. It's image great. But it's failed design, it barely had handful made of them. Why have mini of it?

Because it got a TRO entry. If a mech got a TRO entry, the odds of it getting a mini are roughly 90%. If in-universe more than one were built, the odds are much closer to 100%. You'll note that I haven't mentioned if the unit is any good in actual gameplay or in universe.

you can build a not insubstantial force of just minis for chassis that went extinct before the 4thSW. The Rifleman III is a similar case

there is a sculpt for various units with histories like the Bellerophon in other eras as well - eg the BNC-11X from XTRO Steiner

Ironically, IWM will sell more Bellerophons than were produced in-universe. I know I'll be getting one.

Also remember the bellerophron was liberally produced in the Jihad era’s retrotech craze. Probably more made then during the age of war.

The MUL lists it as extinct in all eras, so they likely didn't build a lot of them.
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.

I've found mul possible incomplete.  The books are canon.  I think just not enough folks are able work on them. :(

The MUL is all volunteer, and not very many of them. And Battletech is big enough that it'll likely never be complete.

So how long till the next classic is released? I know some are on hold, but the non-mcross will be in plastic soon enough, will any of those be in metal before the box releases??
