Agreed, the colour choice of the mauraders was never my favourite.  I do like the idea of them being in a two pack - hopefully with a lower price point than buying two individual figures.   Strange that Slaughter still comes with his "mini-me" figure.

Also I really hope Torch's sunglasses are not a hot mess like Ripper and Buzzer's are.

Agreed - I think Doc looks the best!  The pill bottles on his helmet are a fantastic touch.  Removable vest for those that want a more original look.  Torch has coloured tattoos!  The other are also great looking, the two pack of repainted figures is going to be on the pricier side, I hope a regular release and not a store exclusive.

I think after the VAMP, we are going to see either the Thunder Machine or the SnowCat.  I personally would love an aircraft for Cobra.

I let it run for roughly 15 min, and it was still going.  I suspect it has to be turned off.  I am looking forward to the VAMP.
What really set ARAH from everything else was the vehicles and playsets.  The size constraints in this scale is going to be the limiting factor, but I am in for anything they produce.

Found a feature on the Classified HISS tank, I haven't heard about yet.  If you press and hold the button, it goes into a demo mode of sorts,  All the lights come on, including the interior light, for a few seconds and then turn off. This repeats every 15 seconds or so.

Are there any other secrets this thing is hiding?

WOW - just wow, this thing is huge, but not cumbersome to move around.  It feels like it is well built, and the electronics add to it nicely.  The small attention to details, and the options to make your HISS tank unique are amazing.  Makes me wish I could of afforded to buy 2 or more. As much as I thought I would be putting the clear driver cover on, in hand I prefer the red/black gull wing look.

As much as I love the idea that HasLabs are unique and their limited runs make them special.  I would really like to see this released to regular retail channels, but in Blue, Red, White - or dare I say shiny chrome?

The figures are also excellent, not a single quality issue with the three I opened (not sure that I will open CC, as I like the look on the classic card back). The shovel is a little flimsy, and I don't think I will be swapping hands, but the option to be able to do so is appreciated.

The fire team, looks great next to the HISS and is a very nice compliment.

I took your lead, and yes it actually shipped on the 8th - and should be arriving today!  Love to hear fellow members thoughts and opinions.

Fireteam arrived yesterday.  Figures are great, no quality control issues.  However the weapons feel arbitrary and random.  They are also a little rubbery.
