It would be even better if they were on sale, so we could get them for the weekend :)

The 4 most recent if I recall correctly. Least popular/purchased would have to include Huggin/Loup de Guerre/???? (too many choices)/La Malanche

same boat here....

I do have my eye on the vindicator, but have some other mechs to level up before considering the St. Ives.

A sale on these mechs would make it a little more compelling to pick one up! :D

Interesting new wrinkle, but not nearly enough to sell me any of those at full price.

Sweeeet! Wish I owned one of them, lol.

Still, this is setting a nice precedent. I look forward to when my Yen-Lo-Wang, Ember, and Grid Iron are included! :)

I would imagine the Anasi, pointless though it is compared to other variants, would sell better than The Death's Knell, Oxide, or Huggin simply by not being those.

Though the TDK is underrated.

Be smart to throw them on sale for the weekend to, I'd think about buying a sparky or vindicator then... but good bonus for the early buyers. I'll stick with my grind for now though.

Anansis I see quite some. I'm sure it's far from being one of the least sold.

St. Ives I saw a ton of them the day it was released. Not that much later on, but that probably is because the vindicator itself is "meh" than anything else.

IV-four I rarely see, and I guess with a reason. The chassis is...bad :D.

Hellslingers I rarely see aswell. Probably because is a hero of an assault which is not common (and I don't see why, I think the battlemaster is a great mech...)

Yes, push more sales, so that people can feed and take care of their children. So that PGI can keep the servers live. So that there can be more productivity and work.

You really might want to stop posting as you're just super negative without any reason to be. Cripes.

...how about just a plain ordinary Cbill mech sale? Cbill mechs havent been on sale since the last mech challenge (4 weekends ago) and at least for that challenge the 12 hero mechs featured were offered at 50% off the MC cost...this one features 4 heroes (not overly popular heroes so most people will not be able to "enjoy" the weekend bonus) that aren't on sale, nor are any other mechs. And before anyone jumps on my head about the usual ftp vs ptp crap last lance challenge I did spend my hard earned $ on a couple of the heroes that were on sale.

It's a nice idea and I see where you are going with it, but it needed to be coupled with a sale on these mechs.

I think if people saw the weekend bonus and were able to pick up these on sale you would have sold a ton more.
