That would be indeed a nice set! (maybe a 1/6 Mk1 or (better and) MK 2 Square would make this set perfect!  Razz )
Too bad i missed the Battlechild set with the glorious 1.5 tri-eye Digicamo Caesar...pale

Wasn`t into digi camo yet (because of the dissapointment of missing digi Caesar),
but i scorred the AGO Digi Square chase, and damn... digi looks uber spectacular in hand! cheers

The only thing thats strange of digi Grunt is, that it looks like the helmet and arm guard seems to lack any digi camo?
(that would be dissapointing and huge missing oppurtunity in my book, as these parts are perfect for this camo! )

It's not easy to see but the outfit is in Digital camo the arm band isn't nor the shield but think of in a way less is always more or he is just weathered as all hell. Personally I love the look and this eliminates me wanting to find a stealth grunt to fill that gap in my Digi army.

I wouldn't get too excited. Based on previous Digi-cammo sales they are on designed to be emo traps. Nice but I've had enough of "look at this, would you like to buy one? Would you like one? Here you go".... then at the last second "Nah, you can't have one Ha Ha" I'm not falling for that trick again.

Oh yeah, the "joy" of emo traps... Mad  (or: "the art of turning anticipation into frustration without any reasons" :written by 3A  tongue )

Looks like Digi became the new "EMGY" which everybody loves and desires, but only some few folks could manage to grab some (or have deep pockets to pay ridiculous aftermarket prices) and the rest get a friendly middle finger.... Twisted Evil

Anyway...cool figure in an outstandig colorway...want!  bounce

Contrary to popular believe most EMGY releases weren't that hard to get.
No waving middle fingers, just collectors who didn't buy.
Most people were late to the show and were willing to pay ridiculous aftermarket prices.

5   4x regular drops
1x 3AA exclusive
1   2x limited surprise drop
- EMGY TRG Trooper
- Dropcloth 1.5U EMGY
2x (or one; depending on how you want to define EMGY) NYCC exclusives:
- threeA NYCC2012 exclusive EMGY Mighty Square
- IDW Publishing NYCC2014 exclusive Rothchild Mechanics TF001 INYS MLTA 4Square

Digital Camo was a lot harder:
1x 3AA exclusive (Battlechild and Caesar 1.5 Beagle)
2x Premade limited surprise drops


I wonder how this new Jungle Defence Grunt will be released.

[edit]
Edited some errors in my argument
Thanks for the heads up, geisT

Yeah, of course you`re right,gar!
It seems like my personal perception of the EMGY crew was wrong because the demand/hype that`s around these days for this yellow figs... Embarassed

But i think two figs were suprise ltd. drops: Grunty and DC 1.5 (suprise when Peaceday 1.5U dropped)?

Speaking of Beagle Digi Caesar, as far i remember, the Battlechild Set was at Bamba for some time, but most folks hesitated to pull the trigger, because there was only an Ash sketch, and as the first Beagle digi camo hand pics surfaced...regret galore everywhere ! Mad

The digi Ago MK1 Square seems also a pretty rare chase!
(same with EMGY, Brom, GID and of course hand drawn square)

Hopefully Ash will expand the digi camo colorways, as this design simply rocks,
and some yellow digi MLTA would be a dream... bounce

But good to see Grunts coming back, i only have three yet (DP,Sand,Medic and in need of EMGY, JDF and maybe Stealth) and would love to get some more... Razz

Please express to Ash how there are a number of fans who have voiced their opinion that they do love the Digi colorway and shouldn't limit the sales, maybe the time they are up but not numbers regardless of having to hunt a figure down on the aftermarket you should provide enough of a window for fans to acquire the figure or robot of their desire.

Indeed, my mistake, I forgot WWR Dropcloth 1.5U EMGY was a surprise drop as well. (will edit my post)
When the 1.5U shipped people seemed to love to get rid of the EMGY.
Back then it wasn't that hard to pick one up on the secondary market when you missed out.
Currently there's one available on eBay for US$130 so it is still not very hard.

The sketch of the Beagle and Battlechild meant an instant must have for me.
Just Beagle's new head and the Mikor MGL like weapon was enough.
The digital camo was a bonus. Wink

I understand people are cautious to buy something from just a sketch especially since we're talking about US$345
But history shows most sketch only releases are pretty awesome when they finally ship.

Hopefully we're able to get our hands on Jungle Camo Grunt and Digi Camo Armstrong and not just asleep or at work.

Agreed but I was talking about 1:6th releases specifically since this is a 1:6th thread.
1:12 WWRp Retailer exclusive EMGY Bertie Mk 2 was and is pretty hard (impossible?) to find as well.

3A ditched the grunt helmet liners on MiM.
Makes no sense to include it again since ppl are ripping them off on the first chance they get anyway.
