There's got to be more versions and sculpts of the Catapult then any other mech. Not complaining, I've loved the Catapult since first meeting "Deadeye" in Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries. Can anyone confirm that the Catapulthas more sculpts than anything else? Zeiss may be up there too.

Marauder is currently at 6 available sculpts, not counting the variants included in each pack, the unseen versions and the reseen version.  Also not counting the II, and IIC versions.

There's also the IWM metal version of this one.

It came from that series of starter lance packs IWM sold for a while, i think they're still on the web store. They were largely copies of the plastics from the 25th Anniversary and last Intro Box, complete with half-hex bases. Other way around in fact, as I think the metal ones came out first.

Correct in that the metal Beginner Sets came first. The plastics are copies of them.

Cool. Catapult must be the most popular mech in the game. Or at least up there amongst the most popular.

Wasn't it Ursus II, Scourge, Scarecrow?

Hahaha...ya know what, I read wolfspider's question wrong. I saw it as the Q1 releases, so I responded with "mid this month". Those are the Ryoken III Prime, Crusader -8L, and Swordsman. Sorry about any confusion...still digging out of the Box Set maddness over here with shipping over 400 of them.

As far as Q2 goes...yes.

* cgl box set / lance pack raven-sized boy
* limited edition kuritapult
* DA C2
* new box set sculpt

You forgot the RPE/MFUK K2 Sculpt, though that's now the "LE" sculpt.  I can count at least 8 T-Bolt sculpts, NOT counting the original plastic and/or new plastic sculpts.  Adding in 2 Fan Sculpts and 2 MWO sculpts, that brings the T-Bolt to 14! 

Thunderbolt TDR-1C - Primitive
Thunderbolt TDR-5S - Unseen
Thunderbolt TDR-5S - Unseen - Old Plastic
Thunderbolt TDR-5S - Classic - New Plastic
Thunderbolt TDR-9M - Reseen
Thunderbolt TDR-9NAIS - Reseen
Thunderbolt TDR-10M - Reseen
Thunderbolt TDR-10M - Jumping Pose
Thunderbolt TDR-10SE - Reseen
Thunderbolt IIC

MWO Sculpts
Thunderbolt TDR-5S
Thunderbolt TDR-5SS

Fan Sculpts
Thunderbolt II - Fan Sculpt - N Scale
Thunderbolt II (Mjolnir) SVN-1 - Fan Sculpt - CBT Scale - Metal (Was also available in resin)


Then there's the Rifleman, with 12 (counting the plastic, RPE/MFK sculpt and IIC sculpts), which can be "augmented" by 2 MWO sculpts to bring it up to 14 as well.

Rifleman RFL-1N - Primitive
Rifleman RFL-3N - Unseen
Rifleman RFL-3N - Unseen - Plastic
Rifleman RFL-3N - BattleDroid
Rifleman RFL-6X/RFL-7M - Reseen
Rifleman RFL-7X - Reseen
Rifleman RFL-8D - Reseen
Rifleman RFL-X3 - Reseen
Rifleman II IS - MFUK/RPUK
Rifleman IIC - Unseen
Rifleman IIC - Reseen, Jumping Pose
Rifleman IIC 3 - Reseen

MWO Sculpts
Rifleman RFL-3C
Rifleman RFL-3N


The Warhammer count is 9, not counting 3 MWO sculpts. (I can't remember if it had a plastic sculpt also or not.  :-\ )

Warhammer WHM-4L/9S - Reseen
Warhammer WHM-6R - Unseen
Warhammer WHM-6R - Battledroids
Warhammer WD (WHM-6WDR) - MFUK/RPUK
Warhammer WHM-X7 "The Lich" - Reseen
Warhammer WHM-8D - Reseen
Warhammer WHM-8K - Reseen
Warhammer IIC - Unseen
Warhammer IIC - Reseen

 MWO Sculpts
Warhammer WHM-6R
Warhammer WHM-6D
Warhammer WHM-6K


The Marauder stands at 10, not counting any Fan sculpts.  I'm not sure how many are even out there.   xp

Marauder MAD-3R - Unseen
Marauder MAD-3R - Unseen - Plastic
Marauder MAD-3R - BattleDroids - Hex Base
Marauder MAD-3R - BattleDroids - Oval Base
Marauder - Reseen
Marauder II - Unseen
Marauder II - Reseen
Marauder II MAD-4S - Reseen
Marauder IIC - Unseen
Marauder IIC 2 - Reseen

I don't think I'd count the IIC mechs as being the same mech, given that they're A) Clantech and B) completely different masses.  At that point, you might as well say that the Maelstrom, Dragonfire, Nightstar, and all four Mad Cats also count as Marauders.

Maelstrom, Dragonfire don't remotely resemble the marauder, funny thing is the Nightstar strongly does.

The Maelstrom not so much, but I'd say that the Dragonfire does as much as the Nightstar.

I'm happy to learn the Quickdraw will be done. I hope we'll have a choice of weapons like the Axman.

Is the 8P the one with the Torso-Cockpit and a gun instead of the head?

Would be cool if it had an alternate head, more akin to the original Quickdraws, for the ability to build it as one (like the Dragon II being built as the OG Dragon)

Expect the DA Shadow Cat to be like the Dark Age Catapult or Centurion Omni or even the DA Black Knight.

Inspired by the original, inspired by the MW4 source material, but ultimately something cool. When these DA based sculpts come up, we sculptors are given a bit more freedom to follow "the rule of cool" .

I've done several, including the Aforementioned Catapult and Centurion, along with the Cougar Resculot and the Gravedigger. Trying to make the best of all available art.

Also, I don't know who is sculpting this one. Heck, it could be me.... But more than likely not.

Was like that all last year too. 3 releases per quarter, not counting online exclusive items.
