Wooooot!

And given the picture to turn-around for release, I'm guessing Laurels aren't far behind then. ;)

Jesse - seen this one yet?

Acid Rain Red Face with Heavily Rusted Raptor Marine Version

If I wasn't wasting all my extra collector money on Japanese Mobile Suits, I would be all in on this awesome line.  The vehicle designs, the character designs, the decos - you can just feel the love these guys put into their work.

I've seen the teasers on social media but didn't know it would be a HK exclusive.  My heart sank!  :(  I can only fathom cost.  I want one though.  Acid Rain and other stuff has me kinda glad Star Wars is dead slow.  :-X

Once my Xmas bills are paid next month I'm actually eying a 2nd quad eyes and going all in and buying all the figures.  I'd backed off figs but they're really nice so I am wanting the Buck's Team, and now this exclusive fig and vehicle.  ::)

Did you catch the new figure (new series perhaps?) in the coverage Jeff?

Winter setting but looked like just a more heavily armored infantryman for the setting they're in.  Makes sense given the "walker" technology they'd face...  There's a similar concept for the kits I've been buying where infantry are basically called "soft shells" and more mobile but easily cracked open.  Pretty slick.

Also noticing they had prototypes of the Laurel Worker, and the Stronghold Beaver, which are AWESOME little side vehicles.  I like the concept of support vehicles like that, and it looks like the Stronghold just requires a new upper body portion for variations.  The Laurel just seems to get new arms and attachments.  Slick little designs. :)

Interesting to see that apparently the Flak Bike is heading to production, if I'm guessing correctly.  A mix of a Kettenrad from World War 2 (think motorcycle and mini tankette have a baby), and a friggin' cannon, combined into a transforming vehicle...

This has been one of my top wants since they debuted prototypes a while back...  Artillery doesn't generally make for an exciting toy, but when it's a tank-ish motorcycle that transforms into artillery, how can you say no?

Jeff will cave.  He'll at least get a figure.  I can see it.

Another exclusive, this one for the Taiwan Toy Show... 

A Sol Commander Desserter, who sports a rifle w/sling, and a tattered cloak and stuff, and belt to hold it on.  An awesome little unique accessory set for an existing figure.  Like Red Face for the last show, I'm thoroughly bummed I can't own one.  :'(

I wish I had better overseas contacts to pester for this.  >:(
