Pretty cheap, that's good.

 

Not my cup of tea, something is off with proportions, sizes. Maybe it's the helmet but as in the video animation for the new edition, they seems too small in general.

As someone says, I can see it as a piece for a terrain but... I don't know.

Compared to the miniatures, the placement and size of the power pack on the Assault Intercessor seems off/small.
Reworking the proportions to work as an action figure I understand.
I wonder what kind of material the armor is made it of, if it's rigid or that soft plastic much of the Mcfarlane line is made from.

I’d imagine that it’ll probably be the softer plastic. If sold in stores when a kid could buy it, you don’t want any piece to break with a hard sharp point that could harm them.

I am thinking of getting the Assault Intercessor repainted as my own Chapter.

I pre-ordered both today. I missed out on the bandai one and I’m still kicking myself. Didn’t want to miss out on these too

I think it's a pretty cool action figure, but for my money I'd rather buy plastic crack I can game with or vintage 80's 3 1/4 inch GIJoe figs, a hobby I've been interested in for some time, but haven't pulled the pin on as if yet.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

So, when they first announced the McFarlane series they had an Intercessor. Now that pre-orders are up, they only have the Assault Intercessor. And he’s a sergeant. Do we think they will have a regular Intercessor eventually?

I suspect so. The paint your own Intercessor is blank, so creating a version that's already painted is easy to do.

The only thing that makes the sergeant a sergeant is the red helmet anyway. Just paint it differently (or get one of the blank ones so you can paint them yourself from the ground up).

 

I wonder when we will see a Crisis suits. Robotical bodies are so easy to turn into toys since the joints usually aren't covered in hide or rubber or similar.

On the McFarlane toys site they have both - the prepainted sgt on pre-order now and the paint your own intercessor with the bolt rifle which isnt on order yet

If the give me a sister I'll buy her, and if I buy one, I'll probably buy a few of the others to keep her company.

 

But the sister has to come before I buy any. This is why I had no interest in the Bandai.

 

I liked the Sister Funko Pop, but the whole, "Buy a random box and hope the one model you want is in it," is the worst design ever.

There doesn’t seem to be anyone in the UK offering pre ordering like in the states which is odd for GW. McFarlane obviously view the US as their prime market for these. Hopefully we get them at a reasonable price here too

Can't shake the feeling that the Primaris figure just looks awful. Too skinny, pauldrons are too low/small, and the backpack is lower than the head which cuts a weird looking profile compared to models and art. Necron looks alright but a shame the Space Marine looks like one of those abominations in the DOW 3 trailer. Chicken legged marines.

An additional update on the McFarlane figures - they are slated for release in October, and are a one-week release. MtO again, I'm assuming.

It says pre-orders on the 10th October which we could reasonably assume is when the first/second wave of actual models pre-orders start.

McFarlane Toys website has these listed as being 20 USD for what it is worth.

The coloring seems a bit off-- but at only 20 bucks, repainting them shouldnt be too much of a hassle.

20 bucks is not bad for repaintening. It´s the joints i´m more worried here

Weirdly, I'm kind of tempted by the bare plastic figure, especially if it comes in at 20 USD?

They seem to be on amazon as well. The preorder dates line up but there's no mention of them being a limited thing there.
