A male and a female space fighter or mecha pilot. Wearing some kind of jumpsuit or light pressure suit. Maybe done in the same style as the IMEF?

+1 I'm down for this. Mech pilots would be the shizzel.

 

Why not do a 28mm scale Bonesium CAV model for Chronoscope?

I'ld like some variations of not-Eddie from not-Iron Maiden covers. Did I throw in enough 'nots' to avoid TM violation with my post? :ph34r:

Not that guy who doesn't not totally look that guy who isn't on the cover of that book that isn't the AD&D 1e Fiend Folio, isn't it not? Especially not when completely disregarding the Powerslave album cover?

I would like to see a secret agent in a suit holding a briefcase while talking into his shoe (as if it were a phone).

 

Another similar but different squad of IMEF would be nice too. Y'know...the other squad who the main squad sometimes have to work with.

And could that IMEF squad please have at least one female member who is armored and acts like one of the male members? That is, a reasonably burly woman in standard IMEF armor with female modifications but not breast cups who is running, shooting, or otherwise engaged in combat.

 

The current female IMEF soldier is cute, but she looks like the team mascot rather than one of the soldiers.

 

I saw her as more of in a stripped down armor for mobility options. She's the stay pretty damn far away and provide cover with the anti-material rifle she's got. There are also a few other minis that kind of match her for other lightly armored characters though by other companies (CMON: Mech Pilot and MicroArts: Sarah Anderson) that are pretty simple to convert into other specialists (Medic and Tech).

Okay, sure, that's a fine role to have a figure fill, but why is it filled by the only female on the squad, and why is she wearing space-boob-plate? She's fine in a vacuum, but you have to acknowledge that (a) there is only one woman on the squad, (b) she is clearly sexed up, when none of the men are, and © she's in an extremely passive pose, when all the men are in action poses.

 

The issue isn't the one figure, it's the fact that she is the only woman. Thus, Pingo's request for more female IMEF soldiers. Context is important!

All this talk of chicken wings made me realize there is no Buffalo mini in the line.

I totally asked for those in the other wish list threads! I want a whole herd of them.

It'd be nice to see modern technicians, by which I mean water, power, cable techs; main line maintenance guys (bucket truck extra!); think safety vests, hardhats, maybe a sprue of different tools (to make an electrician, cable guy, water guy, etc). Maybe a set of three.

 

-Dave

if done right, these guys (or gals, if you did two different sets) could also be used for mechanics or as "casual" starship crew. (Think the outfits from the first Alien movie.)

Penny Farthing cavalry, guys in top hats with monacles riding Penny Farthing bikes and wielding walking canes and pistols.

Why not some IMEF and/or NOVA Corps officers? Maybe a bonesium vehicle or two?
