It's funny that DST didn't want to offer a 4th assortment to specialty. My LCS has passed on every Alien wave but saw this one and the owner said he'd have no problem moving a case with all those xenos in the wave. Hopefully other retailers feel the same way, otherwise we're probably looking at more 4-packs at best.

Without actually seeing them in a store and the excitement of finding new product I don't think I can bring myself to buy these. Interestingly it's for the same reason others might be interested: All those Xenos.

What would you have preferred? Are we saturated in xenos? I know I have a LOT.

I'll be getting one complete set and probably at least a couple other 2-packs for some customs. Army builders are just icing on the cake.

I would have preferred anything but that same darn Xeno mold again. I lost track of how many I have but I'm sure it's over 20 and I need it to be something really cool to justify buying more. I might be able to handle an army building set of the red Hiveworld Aliens (I don't think the red Alien here is close enough to work for that) but otherwise I need to see some new tooling. If the Isolation Alien had some new legs to represent it's slightly different appearance I might be interested. It doesn't help that I don't have much interest in the human characters in this wave either.

I'm waiting for a drop ship and / or a clean Bishop and (can't think of her name now pilot chick) before I buy anymore Alien related mates. I hope these sell well enough that those get made.

Yeah, some more xeno variety would be welcome. The different expressions are great but they could switch up some parts here and there to go with the mix & match play pattern. An exploding chest piece would be cool for a platoon of marines firing wildly at a surrounding horde. (I love that Flaming Alien.)

I'm disappointed Dillon doesn't come with parts for another Fury 161 inmate. Hopefully this line continues and we can squeeze in more humans for a greater variety of xenos to victimize and everyone's happy.

I think the dropship is looking pretty unlikely, but it would be nice if there could be at least one more mixed wave with clean Bishop and Ferro.

I'm interested in the Blue Xeno/Ron Perlman set for those reasons alone, but it isn't a priority for me.

Remove some hairpieces and anyone can be a Fury 161 inmate! Ironically, "inmate" is the source of "Minimate." Facts you probably know!

Ah, I get it. "Inmate" as in inmate of the "Art Asylum." Mini-Inmate... MiniMate... I see what you did there. I actually never knew that.

Throw in an exploding head and I'd buy a bunch of them.

I still say we need a chest block/cap for the Xenomorph that allows for it to be looking ‘up’ for a crawling pose. This would have been perfect for this wave, to give us the swimming Xeno from Resurrection as well as the Ox/Dog Alien from 3.

Both good ideas. 👍👍

Has anyone here picked up the latest assortment? This was supposed to be out last week, wasn't it?

Since this was supposed to be a TRU assortment, there should be a shitload of these things, right? We've been told that specialty gets around 3,000 units while TRU gets 10,000, correct?

That was my assumption as well, but the specialty stores would actually have to order them for them to be available.  I could see these ending up at a discount outlet unless DST was able to adjust production numbers. (I still ordered the wave from Luke and love it though!)

My store ordered one case for me. 

They've received two 2-packs.

<_<

One would think that if DST was swimming in excess inventory that Diamond would be eager to ship full cases like they usually do. While I want to support local business, Diamond isn't making it easy. After weeks of waiting I'm tempted to order through Luke's but I don't want to screw my LCS if/when the full case finally arrives.
