    All we’ve seen is the pre-announcement build up. Shouldn’t we wait until the actual announcement to complain about the clarity of the announcement?

    The masters to create the molds are the real cost.

    No, but paying a sculptor to make anew sculpt, getting it 3d printed in a high enough quality for a master, AND then making the mould for mass production while also requiring space for the mould and also for the output of said mould. Oh, and you've already paid for one mould earlier, along with all the work that goes into it, which you'll now dumpster?

    Not particularly scientific but if you chuck all the base price versions of the minis included you get something like the below for shas.
    Bang in an 80 point charontid and a few swc choices its closing on on 600 points of toys.
    Looking at the models below I think you could probably split the Shas across two players without too much trouble.

    Can't wait to learn more about what is in the box. I wonder if we will get some O-12 character, or if the character from the box will be available for O-12 ... would be nice :-)

    Also I wonder if we can expect a duel expension later featuring two infiltration team facing each other in a race to complete objectives with some mob using the AI cards. Yet another way to play Infinity with less "shooting you in the back from the front struff". I would love it. :D

    What faction in the middle? I'd fear they would feel like comic relief, to be fair... But the idea is great if you have 2 teams of a single faction each... who will reach the CA node first, the nomads or Aleph? XD

    And just like with the Brexit, noone is happy with it.
    SCNR

    (I'd prefered a Haqq Healer, what unique capabilities does Aleph bring? Except toasted sandwiches?)

    I'd bet an SMG-toting hacker of some sort. Hopefully, a Ultimate like Dart (so it would be a posthuman with a single body), it would be interesting if you could change her role between runs.

    So like ... Jazz, the SMG-toting Nomads Hacker?
    Aleph is good at hacking and fighting. These roles are already taken. A healer would have been something unique ...
    I say ... Aleph was a mistake :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Bear in mind this poll was for which character unlocks first, we're still getting the Haqq character as a goal.

    It's going to be an engineer. ALEPH's things are machines, so...

    Or engineer/doctor, the Sophotect is a thing.

    The Haqq character could equally likely be an Hassassin, giving us a marker state type of character.

    Hmm... thats interesting. I never associated Aleph with machines. Although every"thing" of them is a machine, I never thought engineering is the core competence of Aleph.

    A sophotect then! XD
    To be fair, Jazz also develops in the medic side.. (she has, for what I understood, a hacking tree, a remote/buddy tree, a healer tree, and a fighting tree, or somesuch)

    To be fair, Aleph has the most amount of unique doctor and engineer profiles in all factions (barring the "every unit has a doctor" in Haqq XD), but yeah...
    Thoras, sophotects, machaon, dactyls, posthumans...

    the haqquislam silouette has a medikit pistol, so I think that dude is going to be the doctor. Aleph can have almost anything, but maybe we can get an asura character

    Nope, I checked this. Aleph has 6 engineers (including the monstrucker) and Nomads have 6 as well. Nomads even have 2 engineer characters and with Corregidor a whole sectorial of engineers. But hey, every day I learn something new.

    I associated Aleph with ... NWI to be honest. Perceived every second unit has NWI.

    Aleph could also be a Steel Phallus member, potentially giving us a melee tank in comparison to Cadin's melee DPS.

    The silhouette doesn’t look like a SMG though, more like a marksman rifle. It also looks kind of like a Thorakitai to me.

    Engineer Deva would be amazing for link teams in Infinity though.
