    Yes (well, pre-Uprising JSA if you want to put blame somewhere), but if memory serves it wasn't Yu Jing who dressed explosive-less versions of them up in cute chassis in them in order to recruit children to military schools, and that sort of extreme cynicism fits Pan-O in this setting like a glove, though I think it was Nomads who did the cute-over.

    Nothing fancy but a solid realese. At least it’s not another " In nomine patris" hacker pose. I'm not sold on the visor area but that's a minor detail.

    I quite like it. Updating latest software pose or giving orders as a lieutenant. Cool.
    Also the armor design is spectacular. :ok_hand:

    Hey mate, I posted your pic on WGC. Mentioned you as the source, hope it's okay. Totally love that mini and don't even collect Yu Jing. Damn good job CB. Perfectly represents both profiles (hacker and non hacker) as well as its function.

    Not my pic, i grabbed it from the ISS/IA facebook group The State Empire (come and join us, we're all loyal citizen of yu-jing and we have fortune cookies).

    No idea what's the original source, but i can ask if you want!

    Nice to see that the standard Hacker pose is taking a break.

    Daoying looks solid. I like the pose. Nothing wow though. A bit shame it looks like we got another female, I was expecting to see its male version.

    Is it only me or lately all preview pics have contrast and color saturation increased to its limits in Photoshop? I cannot look at them anymore. The pics with diorama have normal colors though.

    Love the Daoying! :heart:

    The Echo Bravo is not bad. I like the wild parrot. things are always named for how they look but how they work.

    Spector is not bad. I'll be getting him at some point to be another Bash Bozouk for my Ikari.

    The Yadu are up to CB's normal great standards. I love how the Hacker looks a bit like a Cyclops.

    Ugh. Wow. This month was REALLY hit or miss.

    2/5 isn't a good ratio for me.

    Looking at Yadu hacker I get the feeling someone put a Star Wars bounty hunter inside that box by mistake. I totally love the minimal and futuristic design of other troopers helmets. Hacker should have something even more futuristic but instead he got a visor and a gas mask.

    Yadu and daoying look ok/great, especially compared to EB and spector.

    I think it's just a visor over his helmet, no gas mask.

    I think the paint job and/or contrast isn't doing the Yadu any favors, the one from Coldfront is one of my favourite miniatures in the box and these look just as good.
