Thanks guys! Got some more news today:

    The figure will be sold separately, but it will be an amaizing complemet
    to the KV2x. Try to imagine a WWII russian soldier but in futuristic style
    and also very well sculpted.

    Also, as long as I know, will have 2 versions: one with a modified KV2
    turret and another without turret. That also give us 2 different prices.

Wait, will you be the sculptor of that figure?
And what about the turret, how much will it be modified and by who?

Actually I don't know the answers to either question! :lol: I'm not the sculptor, that I know. But they've got some talented folks in their employ so it should be good. Check their other available figs.

And as for the turret, again, no idea. There's always the non-turret set though.

I was told that there will be a special thing for preorders. No idea what that is though be it price, be it an add-on, or whether it's for all preorders or just those folks on my original list.

Congratulations Mike, I was wondering if you would ever find a caster to build the kits. I am happy to hear that Mig Productions is doing the casting, I can't wait to see the photos of the cast parts.

Thanks guys! Mig told me a few weeks ago that they have the first pours and that it's looking great. He's excited about building one. And I'm excited to see their work on it and the new optional turret.

BTW, I can't show the images of the figure they've had sculpted to go with it, but it looks amazing! The figure is a separate item and not included with the tank.
