Some backlogged Ori Toys/Acid Rain World news... Which comes out in dribs and drabs on social media by the line's creator. It's kinda fun that way.
New figure pictured...
Forseti - Viking Shield soldier... Bulkier armor, snowy deco, redesigned weapon, new visor on the Laurel Pilot's bucket... Also looks to feature the new style articulation, which appears to enhance poseability and hide joints better. I'm anxious to get some of the figures featuring this innovation. Also, looks to be a nifty box/cargo crate the troopers come in. Army building time!
I'm sure those bitchin' crates will find their way into my goofy background diorama that's ever-changing.
Also a variant of this basic figure planned as a con-exclusive...
AMM Soldier's... They're a security force for "Beehive", a company that sort of has some monopoly on the honey trade in this dystopian future where bee populations are critically low and honey is an incredibly valuable resource. I dig the deco on these more honestly. They feature the Laurel Pilot's bucket and visor though. And they also appear to get packaged in a special cargo crate for the AMM force. Kinda neat.
Better pic of the Hiroshima Laurel Worker, and he comes with blueprints.
I hope the regular Laurel Worker comes with them as well. Not known yet, but there is often some little extra paper freebies packed in with the vehicles in some way or another.
Oddly, the Hiroshima Worker figure is a bit more "generic" looking to the regular Laurel Worker pack-in figure. Kind of meh, but I'm sure I'll manage some cool headswaps on them regardless.
Lastly and not leastly, a tease...
The Laurel Arachnid Model... Looks like a prototype or test shot of some sort. Heavily armed. Reminds me very much of a model I just got in the same-ish scale. The Arachnid is creepy... I'm hoping the final product is changed some, as while I like the shoulder cannon on the Laurel Mech itself, I'm kinda thinking some big missle pods up on the shoulder would be way cooler than the cannon we already have. Either way, it's kinda creepy looking and I dig it.
