Iron Grenadiers AGAIN?!

At least it's different members. Besides, there have been a lot of really good custom Metal Heads made so there is a demand for it.

yeah, but that's twice in three years and three times in the time they've been doing these sets they've gone to this well.

I suppose that's the crux of it isn't it? ME Mayhem, Metal Head, Undertow and Iron Anvils, like the 2009 ME redo of the Crimson Strike Team...

So far no new tooling on the figures. Maybe most of the tooling budget went to Metal Head?
I think possibly a new head for Big Brawler, Iron Anvil, and General Mayhem. Though they could use Gnaw's head with Voltar's helmet for Mayhem I guess.

I have to say that I really like the reveals so far. 

I've always had a soft spot for TF and IG, but the reveals so far show some nice quality and design choices.  In my opinion of course.

I also like that they created another level for Undertow and a traditional IG design for the figure.  It is great to add another character to the IG ranks even though I won't be getting this set.

Big Brawler is now posted.

Like it a lot.  Looks just like I had hoped.  Always good to have a large sized character.

Although stop being a tease FP and post Metalhead already!!!!!  That's really who is left that everybody wants to see now. 

Of course I would like to see the vehicles, but the only real preview will be when some Chinese seller on Ebay lists never before seen vehicles in the next little while.

Not going, but I haven't gone in years.

The last one I went to was in Kansas City (09?).  Just can't justify it anymore with costs and lack of interest in Joe right now. 

Man we need a new show and toy line soon.

So Stalker is up:

http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=9&itemid=24356


I have to say that I love it!!!!

Great look, great accessories.

Now while I love the look of the new head sculpt and the removable beret, I am a little puzzled as to why they chose to spend their limited dollars on a new head for Stalker.  Granted there is a new head for Iron Anvil, and presumably one for Metal Head, but I guess I should just be happy with the choice and not nitpick something so small.

Oh and glad to see they are going to make us wait until the very end to see Metal Head (jerks...hahahaha)

why the hell is Stalker carrying an M2? He's a bleeding Ranger! (or more likely a Green Beret...)
