I'm sure the minis he will report will be speck-tacular.

Regardless, it will certainly be a speck-tacle.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                              Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                                One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

I think there's more than enough speckulation to go around.

My local brick and mortar store got them in two weeks ago, so yeah, they ought to be available from most retailers now.

I was unaware that variants are available, that's awesome!  Are there photos of the miniatures available anywhere?  And what variants are available?

Thanks!

If you are asking about variants for commando and Thunderbolt there will be some in the future. We have had some delays. More to come.

Thanks Speck - to clarify, the currently available Thunderbolt and Commando minis sold by IWM are the standard 5S and 2D variants, but there are plans to sell variants in the future?

This is the first time I've looked at the Tundra Wolf and thought, "Man I need one of those mechs."  I always thought it was one of the dumbest looking mechs.  This is a great improvement.

Griffin - no updates
Catapult - Yes, will be release as complete mini in upcoming December 2020 distro release. Due to other items being delayed we had to go to plan B for December 2020 release of items that were at IWM. I will post full list tonight after work. When this catapult is added to IWM store for sale, the arm sprue will also be added. For those who just want the arms.
