you think they are gonna double dip? didnt think about that one.
Maybe not all of them but bottom left looks like Bruise Brother, which would match this old concept art from the licensing announcement.

Found this while looking for that. Looks like one new madball and three redecos (battle damage/new colorway for orbus) if this is still the plan

So yeah, actually. Ill probably skip Marcus and Bruise Brother, and I have two horn heads already so I'm gonna skip Sy Clops (one-eyed baby is a boring design to me) but I like the green orbus repaint and the other set.

Bruise Brother has a jacket in the concept art/on the card so that's either part of the variant here, or they changed that during production (wouldn't surprise me if these spheres can't wear soft plastic jackets very well).

Oh wow... if the 2-packs indeed map to these cards, I could see being in for all of them except the Horn Head one! (HH with his horn broken is NOT OKAY, and if all goes well I should already have HH in the form of the MPM repaint. And if I haven't received that by the time the preorder period ends, I'm probably not going to have enough confidence in the line to want to order.) LOVE the Oculus redeco; the dude covered in eyeballs is super gross; SCREAMIN MEEMIE is hands down my Favorite Madball; and something about that updated Bruise Brother in the jacket just works for me in a way that the standard release didn't. I imagine the price will be high enough that I might just stick to the Screamin' Meemie set, but if I can justify at least the Oculus set I'd jump at that too. Excited to see more.

Actually that Screamin Meemie is a variant too… he’s all in red in the art, the figure was originally blue.

I'd grab a solo release of Screamin' Meemie (I'm sure they'll do one considering all the other reuse they have going on already) but yeah I think I'm not onboard with GPK figures. They make sense as cards because the card gives them context, but "why do you have a bunch of bloody, beatup children on your desk?" is not a question I ever want to have to answer. Even if I did a headswap, the body components aren't that interesting.

I will say that the head where he's stuffed with madballs is fun.

Yea, I think this is a swing and a miss. $79.99 price and the GPK just don’t interest me in the least.

100% chance that Screaming Meemee is in Madballs Wave 2 in the original blue color with a regular head.

Id be tempted if the green Oculus is a glow in the dark variant but still, $80 for one figure I want is too much. Don’t want to go through the effort of selling the GPK.

They are doing a reveal a day to build hype, I think.

Well, I want that GITD Orbus, like I thought I would. I guess I'll sell Darren. Does anyone like these GPK designs? Like really? The GPK designs are already grotesque, adding all this battle damage to them makes them hideous in a bad way, to me.

Hmm, good point. i didnt think about that. that being said, hopefully they make a 'regular' versions of GPK
Its like overkill with the bruises.

that toxic Oculus is pretty good thou.
