But none of them have the BA icon molded on?

 

There's no molded-on Chapter iconography, no.

Only the captain has both shoulder pads separate. Brother Dyrael (new one with servo skull) and the standard bearer have one shoulder pad separate, one molded on. Everyone else has them molded on.

My parcel with be delivered today so I might post pics.

 

edit: Just arrived, literally got the captain on my first open.

 

edit: and the second one lol. 

edit: cyclone is third, thew.

 

first duplicate is brother aramas with his hammer in the 6th box

 

final box is a duplicate of brother Dyrael so I got everyone but the ancient who I don't need.

 

They're pretty much in scale with the old guys.

Center brother Dyrael, to his right Space Hulk terminator and 5th ed starter box terminator (Bt colours), to his left multipart regular terminator (except for the arms) and then blood angels assault terminator

 

 

Dyrael, new Chaos Terminator, Captain Donato, Captain Karlean, clampack Blood Angels Librarian.

 

Chaos terminator has the longest legs, Dyrael's leg plates are the same length as the 5th ed starter set guy he's just got a longer waist.

I bought my first one today, got the twin claws guy who might get used as a captain. They are really nice models, I do wish they were multipart though.

Most of them you can easily hack the chest off to make them equivliant to the old multipart terminators.

It's less the chest I'm concerned about and more the arms, I don't have enough shoulder pads to do arm swaps if I choose to switch out weapons or anything.

That is good news! So giving them robes is in the cards? I'd cut up some of the torsos and put the bt Upgrade sprues on them and replace others with deathwing robed torsos.

Closet Skeleton, that's funny because that's exactly what I got in my sealed box. I really love these models. The lightning claw guy is super dynamic for termie armor and my second got a th&as and looks great. The cyclone is amazing, it's like a heavy variant on the armor. So looking forward to painting these up.

The Cyclone and Assault cannon guys have (2nd/6th ed) devastator legs.

 

The Thunder Hammer/Shield and Cyclone guys have a Mark V/VI-ish thing going on with their torsos which I guess makes sense with how the old plastic terminators kit had an unexplained mix of Mark VI and mark VII style knees but no major torso variants. Its also kind of reminiscent of 2nd ed Chaos terminators which is cool.

Another thing is the feet - the assault terminators have reinforced armour on the toes.

Just in case this helps anyone, here's the box numbers from my pulls. It's from 30± pulls, and in each case every number was pulled from multiple cases with the exception of the Banner Bearer as I only pulled him once. Some were purchased between two stores, and the last 10 opened were 100% accurate match to what I had already pulled (except the new pull for the Banner). They were pulled in Michigan, USA, and as always different areas or production runs may change up the numbering. But still, it was consistent enough that it was worth posting in the event that someone sees the same spread of numbers in their shop. Note the oddity of the Cyclone Missile Launcher and Lightning Claws sharing one number between them, though that one number yielded 3 Lighting Claws and 5(!) Cyclones in total.

NG1 19143 Brother-Sergeant Victorno Thunderhammer and Stormshield 1:10
NG1 19144 Brother Phaello Stormbolter 3:20
NG1 19148 Brother Sanyctus Lightning Claws 1:10

So I went hunting for the release date of Series three since I have items I'd like to add to that order and CDJapan doesn't hold items for extended periods.

 

Other then the vague date of Sept '19 there isn't a confirmed release date. However Good Smile (parent of Max Factory) does have a detailed list of confirmed releases/dates.

 

That is here. As of the 11th they have their released planned to 09/24.

Our Hong Kong store is about to have its anniversary in I think a week to 10 days' time, I bet they'll release these by that time.  And I'll share what I get with you guys.  In the meantime, just sharing what I got today:

 

 

+++ THE RANDOM DRAW PARADOX +++

 

 

Here's the apparent contradiction I realised thanks to you guys correcting me:

 

1. The Asian releases of these SM Heroes actually have a complete set in every full box, even though the random lucky draw thing was designed for Asian customers

 

2. It's the Rest-of-World releases that are truly random, really appreciate Brother Kinstrye's list of pulls above

 

When I found this out, I thought it was backwards.  Now at least I know why.

 

Japan has laws that require producers of these random draw things to guarantee there's at least 1 of every possible option, or something like that, to meet customer expectations and to have some control over gambling impulses.  It even applies to toys that you get in vending machines in Japan known as Gachapon.

 

There's probably a legacy reason for this, like it came up with some other toy manufacturer(s) so they passed a law to govern this, and it happened to apply to SM Heroes.  It's as if by-design the Japanese SM Heroes Series Two boxes have 6 blisters each and it just so happens there's exactly 6 different Terminator designs.

 

EDIT - to clarify my thinking on this, it's like both GW and their Japanese partner, Good Smile Company, did that to deliberately please both new Japanese players that are curious as well as already dedicated existing 40k players.  You just heard about this Warhammer and want to get something different on your model store visit, just pick up a random blister.  Or you're already totally into 40k in Asia, want to collect the whole set...well, if you buy a whole box BY JAPANESE LAW I have to give you exactly 1 of each, it just so happens that's how we packaged it, fancy that!  As a regional product manager, I cracked up when I realised that was the power play, it's them "gaming the system" not for themselves, but to meet different local customers' needs in a pretty crafty way.

 

 

+++ I STILL RANDOMLY DREW ONE TODAY JUST FOR FUN ANYWAY +++

 

 

Don't worry, our Warhammer Store Manager's a clever sort and always keeps a sealed SM Heroes box in the back for customers who want the full set, but we've had them for a year here and by now everyone who wanted it, has already bought it.  I just needed a single Terminator to test a paint scheme for a customer Chapter, and it happened I got the Lightning Claw chargine one:

 

gallery_57329_13636_1723544.jpg

 

So this is the one famously in a charging pose, one leg raised.  Just note the hole on the base, in typical SM Heroes fashion the foot is actually part of the base, and leg slots neatly into it.  This one's cool because it's lifting the other foot totally off the ground mid-run, very solidly built.  Also just to show the 2 Shoulder Pads, there are no Chapter-specific things anywhere.  Very good minis indeed.
