The Alpha Strike Lance Packs were entirely plastic.

Iron wind metals does have mech packs as well, but they have a bit different names.
No-Dachi has a counter-argument. Nothing further? Ok.

I'm curious, I thought these were in metal in the boxed sets but above in the thread its mentioned they were plastic like the base 24 that came in the intro box?

Which is it, is it the Plastic or the Metal ?

And if its plastic were the added mechs also in plastic?

The IWM packs are metal and the less difficult versions to assemble. They come entirely from the previous intro box set mechs (the box set plastic molds were based on these sculpts). The alpha strike packs had a different mix of mechs - about half repeats and half new.

Yep, those are not labeled Alpha Strike. But often have the same lance names.

Most importantly, the rules don't care.  Bottlecaps would be legal.

Yep. You can find them here: http://ironwindmetals.com/store/index.php?cPath=16_136

Just look for, "...utilizing 1 pc or easy assembly Mechs from the old Starter Sets," in the description.
