FSS 2.0 figures announced
« on: April 06, 2013, 05:37:49 PM »

The club announced the following 12 figures.

- Big Bear
- Bombardier
- Cesspool
- Cobra Desert Scorpion
- Dragonsky
- Keel Haul
- Night Force Falcon
- Skull Buster
- Tiger Force Airtight
- Tiger Force Shipwreck
- Tollbooth
- Widescope

They only showed Dragonsky and Skull Buster.

Here is the kicker: Pre-orders to start near the end of April.  They want to start shipping them in August.

So almost an overlap.

Savage indicated a month gap between two FSS.  But then again, it is the club.  Shit does happen with them.

Hopfully they will have better quality on this run.  I will sign up again and roll the dice again!

Looks like they learned their lesson and kept it to ARH and related international releases that haven't been done in the 25th/ME/POC/30th (whatever) design.  This lineup has pretty much a 12 for 12 "want" list. 

However I still only really want Dragonsky, Keel Haul and Tollbooth.  The rest would be nice, but won't be something I actively look for unlike my first 3 choices.

Except for the TF stuff, I like this offering.  Dont know if there will be a home run like Big Boa in this lot, but Id like most of those figures as they are obscure and wouldn't see normal retail.

Sorry for the confusion.  Not sure which version it will be.  I just had it for all those that were going "Bombardier, who?".

I can see this version being done:

Fortunately, I plan on ordering a set and want none of those three figures. I'll hook you up.

In all honesty, I will probably only keep the Falcon, Cesspool and Bombardier (if it's the blue one).

GTA folks who want to split the set should get in touch with me.

I like this line up.  it's a good mix.  I wasn't too keen on the first wave of figures but have been impressed when I've seen them in person.  Especially Big Boa.  I even liked Sure Fire quite a bit.
