This seems like unfortunate timing. I dig the Fwoosh aesthetic more.

These seem pretty good. I'm surprised at the level of detail on the "antiquing" of the bones. The test shots or prototypes looked way smoother. Also on this final one, I can not get over the fact that there is not enough space between the bottom of the ribcage and the top of the pelvis. Like, any. It looks way off proportionately to me. Can't buy those until that is addressed. Don't care for the costumed Boss fight ones either. Waiting for my ultimate 6" skeleton still.

I had the pleasure of meeting Robo & Veebs at Power Con today & got to check out the new figures. They really do look fantastic!

I like how these are compatible with the Feudal series armor and weapons. I think I’m time I’ll get four to use my temple armors on.

Thwipp!

I'm guessing if they had a solid timeframe they'd let us know. This early on in the production schedule, most of that kinda stuff is still up in the air.

I'd say it's easily 6-9 months out, maybe more.

At power con they said the factory had everything to get started. I think they are hoping early 2023 but I don't remember 100% what they said...

The Fwoosh team definitely blew this one out of the water. Looks incredible and has tons of stuff. At that price point, I can't really be army building them - but I definitely want one or two.

Minor quibbles:
Warning! FRAT! :
I feel like, when next to the ninja, the skulls of the Yokai are too big. Not sure if they actually are or if this is one of those things where the prototype is 6% larger than it will be in production? So I guess we'll see. But just based on the current pictures, the heads/skulls seem too big.

The thing I was kind of disappointed about was the somewhat goofy fantasy weapons. It wasn't news, as we saw those a ways back, I believe. But a skeleton demon being folded in to hang with the ninja/samurai characters would have been a GREAT way to give us a more accurate katana/wakizashi set, or a tachi. I've banged on a little about this before, but for how gorgeous and detailed almost everything in AI has been, it's still very striking to me how bland and 'modern' the katana sculpt is. Was very much hoping we'd see something more historical/accurate show up here. It is what it is. I'm not angry about it or anything, but it was a bit of a bummer.
Suuuuper cool, though. Really excited for this one.
