$69,420, clearly.

Not a penny more, not a penny less for our glorious Urbielords.

OK..I am REALLY hoping that the Death Commando Urbie Plushie will be availble through the CGL store!

How do you know they are not all Death Commandos?  Never know if under that fresh coat of paint is a Cappie crazy.

The BattleTech Reddit has good pictures of the plushies.  There's an Atlas, what looks to me like a Phoenix Hawk mainly due to the rear jump jet pods, and two Archers.  One's red like Morgan Kell's and the other's blue like Jaime Wolf's.  It seems each plushie is available in different color schemes.  The Atlas I saw on Reddit was done up in the parade scheme for Davion Heavy Guards.
I was told, of the 2 Archers, Yes, 1 is Jaime's, the other is Morgan's. The guy also said 2 Atlas, 2 Phoenix Hawks, and now 2 Urbies.  ( Sorry, can't remember the guy's name, but he's one of The Booth Guys!   :-[  )

Would love to get more of the Stuffed Mechs! Wonder when will they be out!

I was told, like we were teased with the Urbie a few years back at Gen Con, we're being teased AGAIN this year.  So, expect the other Plushies to be available next year, though no one even HINTED at a Release Date.   :-\

To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO  room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object. 3D Prints are just 3D Repros.

Something to bear in Mind. Defending the BT IP is Frowned upon here.

I gave a plushy Phoenix Hawk (okay, Robotech Valkyrie) to my first grandchild 3-4 years ago.

I gave the plushy Urbanmech to my second grandchild about 1-2 years ago.

So I just got me a third grandchild, and will be ordering multiple plushies when they're available, to maintain the tradition, and in hopes of still more.

Worktroll is that mysterious ancestor who scatters the pieces of the all-powerful plot macguffin among his descendants. In Earth's greatest time of need, your grandchildren will have to go on a climactic journey to find each other and reunite the BattleMech plushies to stop the evil so-and-so from controlling/destroying the world.

We need rules to combine multiple Urbies into a (super)Imp! :D

Hasbro is reissuing them (except yellow, due to being a collaboration with Tonka) soon.
