Gencon
« on: 06 July 2018, 09:11:36 »
Maybe I'm blind and just have not seen it......  But... Any news on the Gencon minis for this year?


This is my PPC. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My PPC is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My PPC, without me, is useless. Without my PPC, I am useless..

Wulfen A - 30 Tons
Wulfen H - 35 Tons

Is that correct, or is one a typo?   ???

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

That's just how much they're bringing to gencon.  They're expecting the H variant to be a little more popular.

Are you saying they're bringing 35 TONS worth of the Wulfen H, but "Only" 30 TONS worth of the Wulfen A?    :o

PPCs are so last year.  All the cool kids are rocking heavy lasers now.

I think you missed what I was asking.  I was asking if you're saying IWM will send 35 TONS of the Wulfen H mini, but "Only" 30 TONS of the Wulfen A mini.   :D



Aside from that, any pics of the Jumper?   ???

Not yet, will have something up the week before Gencon. Best I can do with being on vacation from now until the 19th. Should have samples of them when I get back so I can go to town.

Also fixed the tonnage on the article.

I also will update everything that I know will make the show 100% early next week and get the Alpha list updated.

Also, if you plan to ask at gencon for any news on when Wasp / Valkyrie or other classics will be released in metal see below for the only answer I have.

nothing new to report from what I have already passed on in previous posts.

<joke>But it hasn't even been a month yet! You're expecting us to have patience? We wanna know nowwwww</joke>

More seriously, I'm on tenterhooks for new news on that front, but understand you have none to give yet. Patience is a virtue.
Looking forward to the pics of the jumper -- I can't get to Indy, but I'm looking forward to buying some online if they're available after Gencon  :)

My Guess they will keep the power dry until Gen Con and all that can will be revealed.

Speck literally just told you what the answer if you ask at GenCon was going to be.

Pump the brakes guys.  Patience is a virtue.  Saying that doesn't mean you're using it.

While it would be nice if IWM could surprise up with a new first run or some official word at GenCon they probably won't have word from CGL until after the con and everything has settled down.

What I meant was CGL, if they can maybe give us the word. Sorry Speck but it’s been a long day and I am a little obsessive when it comes to this issue (pheonixstrom can tell you) no offense intended.

Considering how good the Wasp looked when it was in production... who wouldn't be obsessed with getting more :drool: :drool: :drool:

I have a question, as a store owner has this increased peoples interest in Battletech/Alpha Strike in recent months?

Yes a little, but, the new HBS Battletech game caused a big spike in sales for those specific figures that are in the game.

Obligatory reminder that it has in fact been less than one month since the result of the case.  I wager it'd be difficult to affect things "in recent months" given that. ;)

I believe, at least that's how I took his question, he is meaning overall interest in actual tabletop game...not the Wasp & Valkyrie themselves since neither are in the game.
