I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for these guys to be released, but now here we are! A Crowded Coop is now shipping their Team Fortress 2 Portable Mercenaries Series One to retailers. The Mercs also made an appearance at PAX Prime last weekend so we get to see what exactly the lineup of characters are; as well as the mystery figures!
So first lets take a look at the lineup as well as the ratios:
Red or Blue Scout – 1/12
Red or Blue Soldier – 1/12
Red of Blue Pyro – 1/12
Red or Blue Spy – 1/12
Red or Blue Engineer – 1/12
Red or Blue Sentry Turret – 1/24
Then we have the mystery or chase figures! The ratios are not given on the box, but I imagine they are pretty rare.
Golden Engineer – ?/??
Clear Spy – ?/??
Signed Artist Proof Pyro – ?/??
Check out the gallery below of the mystery figures gathered from various eBay auctions (apologies for the Golden Engineer, the seller must have been in a hurry to snap pictures of him).
As I mentioned before these are currently shipping to retailers, and said retailers expect to have them this month. They run about $10 per figure and come in display cases of twelve blind boxed figures. Entertainment Earth seems to be the best place to go right now with singles at $9.99 and cases for $119.99. Shipping is free if you buy a display box.
So look out because these are on the way. I’m not usually one to go for blind boxed stuff, but it’s hard (impossible) for me to resist these little guys.
