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 would have agreed there but then the medic is called Doc which totally throws out this theory.

AFAIK there isn't one. people seem to be assuming this figure is of The Doc, just because the same bloke has the test shot BM, Shads and Flint...

not to be negative ( :. :roll: ) but there's no concrete evidence yet that it's anything other than a custom...

There won't be any official reference to the figure being a club exclusive until the begining of the convention. That'll be when we find out if he really is an exclusive or if we've all been had by chinese sellers and our own hopes :)

that was speculation on my part as to the origin of the alledged Doc figure.

quite excited to see what they do with this and other exclusive stuff at the convention but I wish they would stop using such "pinky" flesh colours. they almost look translucent in bright light...
