Still no pics of the Thunderbolt IIC?

Will not have them before show due to a variety of reason.

I believe you mean the ExterminaClear, good sir.

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.

Darn going to miss the chance to get a  Leviathan.  Even at the price still worth it.

anything special about that ship aside from being rare?

Imagine if the Atlas or Kodiak or (insert your favorite 100-tonner here) were made in only two sculpts. One looked amazing, but never made widely available, and produced only in extremely limited numbers. The other was widely available, but an extremely disappointing sculpt, with very soft details and ill-fitting parts.

There’s nothing to argue about; It is the most powerful ship ever built.

Just a FYI to those at the show. We got some restocks in on clear exterminator and leviathan so the limited per purchase has been removed. Factory did a great job getting more done for the show last two days.

I am spending way too much time trying to figure out how I want to arrange the cargo on my SRM trucks.  Will it be possible to order those bits individually later?

Wish I'd paid more attention to how many trucks were in the blister.  The 2 blisters I picked up aren't going to be enough so hopefully my friend who's doing the full weekend(lucky *******) will be able to snag me too more.   


Is the rocket variant's record sheet Operation Klondike only, or has it showed up somewhere else too?

Record sheets for the flatbed truck only show up in RS: 3060 and RS: Operation Klondike.

Sold out of the flatbed trucks today.

I will find out about the bit after the show.

Now sleep time.

I am amused that the flatbed trucks seem to have sold as well as some mech sculpts.

The trucks are pretty sweet.  I'm still trying to figure out what to have them carry.  Spent a good amount of time tearing through my bits looking for potential cargo.  The ATM9 from the Balius works fantastic as a large crate if you shave off the little dots on the side. 

I almost picked up a Leviathan because I'm a sucker for rare stuff, but it's cost was too much for something I'd likely just leave in a booster.  Better it end up in the hands of someone who will paint it and get it in a game.

If the molds are still there, why aren't they regularly available?  Speck explained that the clear Exterminator was because it's a serious pain in the ass to produce(I believe it), but I forgot to ask about the Leviathan.

Because it was produced as an exclusive. Specifically, prize support for 2003's FanPro Commando World Wide Event, Trial of Retribution.

Check out the bins that come with the j27 ammo hauler. They have missiles and a cargo container that may fit.

Any good picks of the Thunderbolt IIC?

I'd like some more of the Jupiter too.

If someone buys one, could you take a 3/4 side photo, like the viewing angle from the line art from TRO: Prototypes?

I love that line art, but this pic doesn't give a good impression of the torso relative to the hips, which is where I greatly dislike the original Thud IIc sculpt.

If anyone was wondering, here's the difference in the new lasers on the gyrfalcon as well as how the wings were handled.   The torso has more rounded edges and the legs appear to be unchanged.

So far it looks like the AC2s will fit just fine on the new arms.
