My 3 came in...  man the snow deco isn't that high on my list of wants, but this armor is all kind of kick ass.  It is actually applied like armor, and over top of a basic figure torso, so this was I'm sure something that economically helped them keep costs down while basically giving us a new figure for all intents and purposes.  It's really a neat figure and the cargo box packaging?  It's functional, they stack upon each other and kind of "lock" together so they can't just slip off of one another with a bump to a shelf...  It's awesome.  The handles on the box are sized perfectly to the Laurel's hands too, absolutely perfectly, so that they fit quite well and look badass like they're loading the boxes aboard a ship or something.

I have a hankering for more of these guys now, but I really hope they mix up deco and give us some green, black, tan/sand, and other deco choices.  I'd even dig some "urban" ones that the box is maybe a different color and the trooper is maybe more of a police deco like riot troops or something.

If I have a complaint at all, it's a lack of functioning holsters/sheaths and removable parts from weapons.  In this case a removable bayonet would've been cool and a sheath for it even cooler.  Likewise though, ALL these figures could use a pistol with a holster as an extra plus.

But if it meant giving up the box, I'll take the cargo box any day of the week.  Lacks deco, but is instant diorama fodder.

As per the front page, Acid Rain is going to space with its story...

It makes them all the more fitting in a Star Wars scene.  Seems like a lot of Industrial sci fi looking stuff is on the horizon!

Will there be aliens? Please tell me there will be aliens!

I can't get into a line that is solely human centric, but throw some weirdo alien goons in there and I'm down.  :)

Since Star Wars is like a solid 80% humans it seems, I'm ok with this not being alien focused...  I'd highly doubt any aliens are involved.  While it's a scifi line, it's more post apocalyptic than anything.  There are mutated humans coming, a droid(s), and sci-fi industrial stuff, but aliens probably won't be a part of any of the line if I were to guess. 

Guys in space suits that look like zero G construction workers though?  Good bet!  :D

Working flanges for the astronaut guys?  I'm intrigued!  At least the thumb appears to grip.  These are very Japanese looking in their inspiration with a little bit of the Alien franchise mixed in too.

The ONE Acid Rain toy I was meh about went on sale and got me to cave and buy!  Wish I had more $ at the moment because I think I'd pick up 2x more and customize them into normal decos.
