Pins image is fixed for the USD pricing issue.
The reason this is posted is for Players who are going to Mech_Con have an idea of what is available and the prices.
Also If players who can't attend but know someone who is attending they can request they pick something up for them.
We only posted them this close to Mech_Con because the product just came in and this was our first chance to show what will be available.

WRT what that 'mech is? I'll just quote myself from here;


Funny thing: The Crusader 3R actually has the SRMs in the legs. But since we have no leg hardpoints PGI has to move them somewhere else.

Thanks for the clarification Matt, I would just suggest in the future that this kind of information be posted well before the event and to figure out a way in which you could order these internationally.

Thanks!

Yeah, I think this happened with one of the Cicadas, too. Leg hardpoints became torso ones.

At first I was about to laugh at the poor picture taking and having a finger in the shot for the shirts. Then I realized you're covering up an obviously to-be-announced mech. Given the large arm-mounted missile launchers, the very distinct torso frame, and the hints of the head with a single antenna mount . . . I could dare murmur the elusive word "hope" that it is a Crusader . . . however I won't be surprised if that isn't the case.

I hope its not the Crusader because if it is, those launchers already make it look horrible.

As much as the Cru is a mech greatly desire if this is what we're getting I'd rather it not happen, because of those are supposed to be it's box launchers its a complete bust, comparable to the BattleMaster and Javelin

Its on a shirt so its a PGI/Alex original design.

You can't put BT designs on a shirt if you don't have the license to do MW/BT merchandise.

What would have been wrong with around the wrists as arm mounts, half the later models art has them there, and the box launchers been transferred to the shoulder loc.

If this is the Crusader, it sucks so bad..

Leg hardpoints move to torsos. the 'mech on the image seems to have arm missile hardpoints (similar to a say Phoenix Hawk Roc I think).

I'm with you there. If they can't do the Crusader correctly due to the never-ending nonsense with HG, then don't do it at all. Leave it Unseen and move on. That said... I can't see them having the nuts to release the Crusader now, amidst everything.

I personally am however pulling for the Anubis though. TRO art for the Anubis was trash. Looked ok in MC2 though. If Alex got his hands on it, I'm sure it would at least look damn sexy.

Even without hardpoint inflation, the Crusader has a lot of weapons in the arms. And the LRM boxes would be huge and awkward in the writs (imagine when people equip MRM40s there). Anyway, the original TRO art doesn't reflect the mech's armament.

The Orion and Zeus show that missile fists work out fine aesthetically.

Exactly. "Wrist Hardpoints" have already been done. Wouldn't be an issue.

Orion and Zeus don't have hand actuators (and not as many different weapon systems).
Imagine all this in the wrist of a mech: 1 AC/5, 1 Rocket Launcher 20 and 1 Medium Laser.

I repeat, the original concept art doesn't take into account the mech's actual loadout.
