How soon will Interrogator be unmasked?

... and what about the :muton: :muton: :muton: and :skeletron: :skeletron: :skeletron: and :wolf: ...?

Given the quality of the convention :blades: & Hawk that came out a while back, an updated Roboskull could be awesome.

Those fugures look great-I hope we get more Red Shadows & Action force in future releases :lol: Any idea guys on this O ringed Medic that I saw the other day as I've heard it's a bonus figure from the Con?

The O-Ring medic is rumored to be one of the "Attendee Exclusives" that you get when attending the con, based on what we got last year, I'm kinda expecting to see:

2 pack of figures
3 pack of figures
a figure/vehicle pack
a vehicle
a vehicle that goes with the box set

This is all in addition to the 15 figure box set which includes the Black Major, Flint, Interrogator, Red Shadows and Red Torches

This is what I'd like to see (I've included Medic as it seems he'll be in one of these sets & excluded Skip since I assume the club would think he looks too much like Flint)

Medic/Minesweeper
Radio Operator/Captain/Sapper
Wheels with repaint of Vamp (in Z-Force colors or just a new Z-Force Jeep)
Whirlwind
Roboskull

i'd love a new style Roboskull, but i doubt it'd happen. given the limitations on what the club can and can't do, i'd expect either a new Hyena, a new Laser Exterminator or a new Escape Armour.

if they were to do a AF vehicle, i'd expect it to be either Quarrel and a redeco RAM or Wheels and a redeco Striker or VAMP jeep.

figure wise, i'd bet on Hunter, Quarrel, Red Laser, Red Jackel, Gaucho or Jammer. they seem most likely, again given their limitations. alright, they are doing swivel-arm BM and Shad, but those guys seem more likely.

if theey do AF Stalker, i'd expect a name change and a radically different colour scheme, in order to differentiate him more from Snakes and to avoid confusion with Joe-Stalker.

likewise, I'd bet if a Z radio operator gets done, you bet your bum he won't get called 'Breaker' and if a Z tank ever gets done, the driver won't be called Steeler, even if he is a redeco Steeler figure!

i could see that, as a swivel-joint version of Shark and Leviathan, maybe... Wet-Suit could be a new version of Dolphin or something...

Yeah, originally I just expected we'd see all the typical o-ring figures with the Z-Force, SAS, etc... decos. But then I saw that Medic and it got me to thinking.

Really that list is what I hope to see, but I understand I probably won't see everything there (especially the Roboskull :) )

I disagree entirely, I think the sky's the limit here. Having faithfully recreated the original Shad and Major while creating a new Red Torch and redesigned Doc, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a brand new Shad vehicle. I doubt that Doc is stand alone, we may be looking at a whole new Z Force squad!

I can't wait to see what's next!
