As far as Battlemchs are concerned; the Mongrel, Ursus II and Brhama are on my list.

Vehicles i want to see the Saxon, Lamprey, and Kelswa get done.

As far as aerospace, a mech scale Měngqín and starenstur  are called for.

Here's a question???
The new sculpts from the upcoming box set, are those designs going to be available later in metal from IWM?? Not plastic lance sets or anything, but normal overpriced catalog minis??

Personally I'd be pretty ecstatic if they were released in the plastic lance pack format. I bought every one that was released, and  definitely want more plastic crack to go with the metal meth I'm addicted to.

I am not sure you would see a plastic lance pack before 2020 GenCon IF it did happen.  Mostly I want my new Marauder & Warhammer, the Wolverine 3R is very workable for other purposes.

LOL maybe...some sell better than others though. Sometimes I over buy with the first batch, other times...I cannot keep them on the shelf!

Either way, it's not my place to "confirm" but I can say I will be ordering all 3 when available!

Asked about the Defender a while ago. I think we have distant hope.

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

I would love to see more Aerotech Warships out there. I would love my number of ships to grow.

500 is the number of Warships Now. 500 looks like it will stay for a long time.

Box sets aren't pewter minis, though.

The K2 RPE made was the one for MechForce UK. I have a couple of those, and they are really nice looking.

This newer one was designed by Matthew "Stinger" Cross, as a "Dark Age" revamp of the old CPLT-C1 Catapult...kind of trying to bring it into a more modern look. He added the PPC's as a gesture to the community knowing how coveted that sculpt was.

The one you are referencing is the CATLTD-06 Limited Edition Catapult CPLT-K4, which comes with Missile Boxes to make the CPLT-C4.

I don't know if the Limited Edition Catapult was ever a Con exclusive but it's been popular enough that it's been available as an online-exclusive mini for over ten years.

It technically was, all those LTD minis were at one point or another

So it's just that unlike many of the others, it's been popular enough to keep in production?

So, some further clarification on the CPLT-C2 Catapult. The C2 was originally designed for MechWarrior Dark Age in the very original release. They then back-ported through stats to classic BattleTech later and made the mech premier inn 3062.

From there, the weapons load (2 cannons in the torso) made it a perfect candidate for me to swap the missiles for PPCs and then call those torso weapons machine guns.

Are those PPCs Canon? I'm not totally sure. But no matter what, they should be some fun additions to your collection!
