Maybe...I would hold out if it was me for the alt marines (depending on current gaming needs, but I dont really "need" more marines at present). After seeing the new ones on bases next to the old ones the new smart gun marine is the only one that looks noticeably smaller.
Received this via e-mail from Prodos, so thought I'd repost here :
Good to have a schedule on the clear preds (I guess we'll see in June how accurate it is!!!), but quite worrying that nothing is said about the rest, especially with this exchange program announcement. Seems like a tacit admission that the rest won't be produced for quite some time, if at all.
I did pledge for the alternate pose marines, and am extremely sceptical that Prodos will ever put any effort into making them, considering the 2nd edition marines are such a different size. Why would they bother making new product that isn't compatible wth the game they're selling?
I think once Prodos do get the clear preds from China, I'll just have to switch out the alternate poses and accept having duplicate marines.
