While I’m not in the market for action figures, I appreciate that GW is also selling one that can be painted up.

Wonder how they will compare against the other smurf action figure GW released. Fancy a red one myself lol

The Necron isn't bad.  I could buy it, but it'll come down to cost and when they go up for sale (relative to the new kits coming), I guess.

This is just teasing! Telling us the necron warrior includes a scarab but not showing us it :(

I like the inclusion of an unpainted one.

That bolt pistol looks downright anemic. Hope it has a little more presence in the real.

I really like that they are already offering an unpainted option.
If they are of the quality of the other McFarlane lines, I'll buy one just to make a Mentor Legion operative to put on my bookshelf.

Really hyped for the chaos types and AdMech that will hopefully follow.

I'm a fan of the Rule of Cool ... but every time I see a Sister firing a Boltgun single-handed gangsta style, I think .... just no.

Still waiting for my Bandai one to ship... :(

 

The assault intercessor looks a little lame, I think the weapons look a little too small. The wrists look a little thin on both, but maybe because the pose, it doesn't look as bad on the rifle intercessor.

Yes, realistically they would need some kind of strength enhancing, powered exo-suit to wield such a weapon one handed.

Am I going mad or did the article originally imply more strongly that other characters from the trailer would get an action figure? This is all I can find now:

 


 

 

..These are just the first two figures from what promises to be a larger line. In fact, we’ve got another one to show you that answers the burning question you’re probably wondering right now…

 

 

...Time will tell what’s next, but we’re incredibly excited about this partnership already. Keep an eye out for more news as we have it, and look for the first action figures to arrive later this year. If you just can’t wait, you can already order highly detailed Primaris Space Marines Intercessors with 0 points of articulation,** in a smaller scale. Give them a shot while you wait for your action figures!

 

Did they edit it?

Hmm. The Necron has a good sculpt but the range on the joints looks a bit rubbish (90 degree knees and elbows on a humanoid figure is pretty lame, especially without the excuse of bulk the Marine has) and if my experience of McFarlane is anything to go by the paint and build will be sub-par. Also, the gun is warped in the promo pics, which is kinda appalling.

Oh god, you’re right. That’s bad!

So has the Sgt got no backpack? I don’t like the look, looks unfinished.

I got my Bandai recently. I like it but not sure I need any more SM figures on my nerd shelf. Maybe a Skitarii or an Ork.

The necron paintjob is kinda iffy too. Its literally just silver an bronze pieces with a monochrome green haphazardly slapped onto some areas... (though its cool that necrons are getting some love)

Not a Necrontyr fan but will buy one just to (hopefully) encourage more non-Astartes models in any range expansion. Like that they are running a non painted model as well.

You guys realize these are prototypes, right? I think it's too early to be judging the finish of the final product based on what we see here.

Maybe its just the angle, but it looks like the Marine's chest eagle is separate from the chest, not molded on like a typical marine. Some of the pinions rise above the chest. Not a look I care for.

Which just goes to showcase that GW asks a lot for their standard minis.
