I am dying to get a hold of this mini. How much longer will he be a Preview in the gallery? He got passed up by the Sasquatch (previewed after and released before). Are there other super hero/villains coming soon?

Crosswire is slated for September. Sasquatch was slated for August. the difference in time is the difference in how long it is from when the model is finished and when it is due. Sasquatch had about 2 weeks from when we got the model to it's scheduled release date - Crosswire still has another month.

 

Models are released according to a timetable worked out 3-6 months in advance, with the ony variable being when the green is given to us -- in some cases we have the greens before others, really. This is why for September and October, some models have their pictures up now, and others do not.

Kinda disappointed in the first superhero in the line. He is just too generic aka Superman-ish. I'll still pick him up, but I hope other hero types are made soon.

I was sort of thinking a generic is great for a first hero. In my mind, i'm not sure comic book superheroes have a lot of variety anyway. tights, tights, tights.... I am thinking a few alternate heads or greenstuff a mask, cowl or pointy ears on him could go a long way. I think I could make a great batman out of this guy pretty easily. A separate piece cape might have made it double dutiful making Spiderman or Fantastic Four, but next time!

They are going to have to be pretty generic just because of concerns with trademark/copyright infringements. And unfortunately, there is vast universe of supers out there in print.

 

Fortunately for us, we can paint em to look however we want. And if he just happens to have a big yellow S on his chest and a red cape and boots and underpants...

 

However, I would love to send some doodles of my Mutants & Materminds character, The Phoenix, who is a fire based brick/blaster so I can see him in metal ::): Heck I made him out of birthday cake last october!
