Thank you for offering these follow-on units at such a great deal. It's now going to be a long wait to see any potential set #3.

May I opine? Since Set #2 was set up to pack as much possible in the box as you could, could set #3 perhaps be ALL the units from the NAC? That is, a total army in one go: HOW, GEV, HVY, MSL, LGEV, MHWZ, SHVY, GEV-PC, LT, INF, CP. Then Set #4 could round out the odd-lot Ogres (I, II, III-B) and perhaps some stuff like trucks and hovertrucks.

While I wouldn't mind seeing all the Combine units in one go, that would require SJ Games to take the gamble on cutting all the molds at once. It would also effectively halve the number of variant color sets, which could be a turn-off to a lot of folks. Even if they re-used the INF (boo!) and cybertank (double boo!) molds, they'd still need to produce ten new sculpts, without the incentive of new Ogres.

No, I think it best to do the next campaigns along the same lines.

Whatever they end up doing, "take my money now" is the operative word.

If I could figure out how to give it to them. Grumble, grumble, stupid American Express.
