    Well to be fair the design is pretty damn back-heavy so the stand is pretty much a necessity real-world wise. I gave up on Toynami when Beagle, the company doing the masterpieces gave up on the project half-way after revealing a Bartley Ride Armor (i.e. Rook) which was one of my fave designs.

    That said, anyone have any "desert" type troops to recommend from 3.75 scale lines? GI Joe SS 2.0's Desert Scorpion suddenly looks very appealing to me.

    These are beautiful. It's too bad they are out of my price range. :(

    The statue set was 50 bucks for two figures, a plate, and statute (no moving parts)

    Any chance we get three raptors for 100? It's gonna be closer to 150 isn't it?

    No. Isn't going to be $150. It's $120 for the speeder mk 2 with a figure and it's a really good size. About a head shorter than mp10 Prime. If these come with a figure, I'm guessing around 70 bucks. Probably less. Don't know. I might just be being optimistic or hopeful.

    Whoops! Just saw you're talking about 3 of them. 3 probably $150 maybe a touch more.

    they do open. look beside the handle and you'll see two sets of latches || = ||

    press in opposite directions on each and they should pop open.

    also - the paper sheet that comes with it has a bunch of papers and envelopes that can be cut up and put inside. i just need to photocopy mine to do so.

    The raptors are way smaller than the speeder.

    The color looks kinda dark - i haven't heard of a "marine" type, but it looks like it may match that Quad Eyes Marine Type in the background

    Not everything is available in the Marine color scheme, apparently, but yeah, the Stronghold has a Marine version:

    Seems to me that they are mutants or something. Getting more and more interested in their story.

    That Laurel looks boss. And it looks like a version might come with some extra armor.

    Oh, I am so in.

    Now, the question is: do I get the Stronghold in Sand, with the intention of getting everything in sand so they're all part of the same squad... or get Stronghold in Marine, just to mix things up a bit?!

    Por que no los dos!

    Oh man, that raptor is nice. Getting at least two of them. Although I do wish/hope they come in "sand".

    I favor the Marine, but I can see the appeal of a unified crew.

    On the other hand, one standout Marine might add to the catch-as-catch-can vibe of the whole thing.

    I'm all in for the sand color. I'm hoping everything comes in something close enough to light gray, tan, etc.

    Its not quite MOSPEDA bike armor but the Raptor still looks pretty damn cool. Kit Lau has been posting some pictures on Facebook teasing the Sand/Desert shocktroopers which look great. The have that WWI/Jin-Roh/Killzone look.

    You guys might want to join the Acid Rain fan page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1467974370084529/1478314799050486/ Kit Lau posts updates there from time to time. Here are some images that I found there that are not on the blog:

    And this piece of info (posted March 26):

    As many people are asking and sorry that I can't reply one by one, so I want to talk about what I am working on, or you can treat them as up and coming products. Some of them have started to paint the box art, some of them are still under tuning. The items include Agurts Infantry - 88th (sand), Raptor speeder mk 1 (Marine) with Marine Corporal, Bob (Bucks Team), Steel (Bucks Team), King (Bucks Team), Jack (Bucks Team), Argus (Bucks Team), The Taste of Coffee set, Laurel(different version.....), Combat Boat, Diving Suit, Chapel.
    But don't "worry"as we are not Hasbro so we cannot push them all at once, we 'll put them into the market one by one
