Agree with all for the toyish vehicles, perheaps could the M-113 have a place in the background of an 1/32 diorama...
But some of the figures are interesting, if you need some more helicopter pilots at a cheaper price than the recently released Nightstalker pilot, or the paratrooper or the desert figure with only small painting upgrade to match with the older released item...
Who can tell me what kind of face gear is on the "cannonball" named figure? Looks like a bulldog...

I can't be 100% sure on this one, but the original fig had Night Vision Goggles that were fixed in place. These appear to be that as well.

Personally - these are some GREAT figure releases. The vehicles.....well...we all need something to laugh at.

Those look pretty pathetic for an adult collector, though like said the soldiers aren't too bad.

Aikens has the FW-190 up for pre-order.

Don't know if it means anything as much can happen between now and November.

I'm pretty excited about that NBC soldier, and the Marine with the M60E. Those were two of the unreleased figures I wanted the most. Granted, they'll both need a major repaint...but, still.

So, the "Cannonball" figure is not a bulldog, but a NBC soldier? I didn't see the gasmask...

No, the guy with the gas mask is one of the single carded figures named "Lt." He's second from the left, bottom row. He was an unreleased NBC soldier from back in the day.

I'm pretty happy but I guess maybe I'm easier to please... Some unreleased figures, some re-released stuff for a fair (assuming) price and custom fodder...

Vehicles? I have an M113, Littlebird, and buggy... Don't need more, so not bothered by these ones.

I'll probably buy that 113 and make a little tow tractor out of it for sci-fi stuff. It'll serve some purpose for something like that. I'm kinda shocked they're putting anything out, honestly.

I'd say it's not likely to be seen till they do a toy aisle reset, which I'd guess would come (at the earliest) when Back to School resets occur. This may not be stuff that hits till they do a Christmas reset though which is usually done after Halloween resets are over... The Fall (Halloween) reset is when they kind of start amping up for Xmas generally, and I'd say that's the sweet spot that these may surface. It could be the actual Xmas reset though which is a long ways off. They reset the toy aisle several times throughout a year though.

Given that the BBi rep said they should show up this month (July), there's a change they may appear in stores during the "back to school" reset in August. That's what I'm hoping for.

I've learned to rarely trust the, "They'll be in stores on _________" line, haha.

Target does a toy aisle reset around then (now-ish) though so it's as good a bet as any really.

One of our members got a scan of the Target planogram.. pictures here: http://www.fighting118th.com/forum/288894-post171.html

It looks like they're bringing back the Mini-Hind as well, and there is an A-10 on the packaging. Nothing other than the figures and some of the accessories look 1:18 scale, but it's something.

Target has a reset scheduled for August 3rd so it seems like they should start showing up around then.
