I second the scale question. I thought these were authentic 1/12-scale. But they look sort of large in the video, and someone above mentioned 7". The answer will determine if I jump on the bandwagon!

5ktoys had an Instagram update for a few items. They have Combatants arriving in the US in two months via boat. For comparison, their two other updates for a 1/12 Resident Evil figure and Ninjas were two weeks airshipped. I feel so deflated.

That's great to hear! How tall are they? How do they scale with ML/McFarlane stuff?

I've never owned an Xesray product before, but I'm very excited for these!

I'd also really like to know. Could you snap a couple pics with some other figure lines for comparison?

What does Vlattia look like with the alternate bare arms? Can you post some images of her like that?

My three landed in the US from AliExpress. I hope there's three in the box because the seller uploaded tracking for only two figures. Maybe he figured there was no point in uploading the same tracking number three times or he just missed adding the last number.

Got my Berenice in, pretty impressed with her.
Only issue is that the armor parts are very snug, great for the overall look but on my copy led to paint transfer. Oh and one foot was a real PITA to swap out. Right out of the box though she's a really great figure.

Some news on future waves from Xesray's Weibo; going back to the Romans with Lorica Hamata and Segmentata.

Can anyone who has them snap a few pics? We're all curious about the scale.

I was worried about the helmets after seeing a youtube review. They looked like they took some effort to put. I've got one more day to wait. They arrived at my PO this morning, but too late for today's mail.

Ugh, this 5k wait is going to be maddening.

I cant speak for the othet two but on Berenice I dont think the helmet is an issue. Its snug but made from a soft plastic.
The paint transfer on mine is is only on one ankle and one bicep (from the armlet), not noticeable when the armor is on.

My 3 just cleared customs and are currently moving through Sparks Nevada. Very excited to get my hands on them since nobody wants to post pics for their scale ImageImageImage I should get mine by Monday/Tuesday, so if nobody has put up pics by the time I have them then I'll post some.

Still waiting on size pics, but this looks promising.

I pre-ordered the trio. They just look too cool to pass on.

Are they actually putting the swords on the correct side now? That's actually really cool. I'm not as into Roman stuff as a lot of people are, so I haven't been hugely tempted by these (waiting for those Celts that were teased and never materialized), but I'm a sucker for mail, so I might get the lorica hamata soldier.
