No, we don’t have a Street Date just yet…but we’ve reached a very critical milestone (the last, really, until it hit the streets), so wanted to immediately share the good news with all of you that have been patiently waiting for this newest and best incarnation of the BattleTech Introductory Box Set.
The last of the printer proofs for all elements of the box set have been approved and the paper product (including the box) are fully printing.
I’ve included a pile of photos below of proofs of all the various elements. As you can see, the bag-‘o-minis, the two high-quality miniatures (inside the small white boxes labeled “Thor” and “Loki”) and the maps are already done and in hand…just need the paper side to catch up.
[For those that haven’t caught the explanation in one of my previous posts, every book/box set generates such proofs at the beginning of the printing process (including a “white sample” of the box itself), which are carefully reviewed for any final errors, after which they are sent back to the printer.]

We’re looking at around mid February for the final product to start heading to the warehouse. Around that time we should have a Street Date, which of course I’ll Command Circuit every where, so people know when to go a-hunting.
