6 of the new sets are out now. New style Symbiote, Spiderman, Sandman, Young
Green Goblin, and Ravage are out. A number of the kits are what Mega calls
super-tech Mecha. They combine super-tech elements (done in weird bionical
style character kits released a few years ago) with Mecha elements used in the
Warriors series plus a new style cockpit for the pilot, which is designed for
old style minis but can accomodate (barely) the new fully articulated minis.
