Citytech 2nd Edition Unboxing!

Yes.  Here we will show the contents of a 16 year old boxed set after I ruin its collectibility by taking off the shrinkwrap and showing all you fine people what is inside.

Buy a product just to hoard and not make use of?

That's just stupid.

There we go!  Everything you didn't care to know what was in Citytech 2nd edition, plus my thoughts and commentary.  As usual, click on the images for a larger version, and I still don't know why Comic Life exports the comics with those weird grey bubbles around the sides.  It doesn't affect the comic itself, but it still annoys me.

Originally this was gonna be a Toyniverse comic with my toys making commentary and framing the unboxing, but I took the pictures over a month ago, and forgot what they were going to be saying and doing!  I think the unboxing and detail stands well enough on its own though.

I think the symbols are the Battletech equivalent of these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APP-6A

Oh without a doubt! The thing is I am not sure exactly WHY they are on the back.

I mean, I am sure there is a reason, I just don't really know what it is. I don't usually play with Infantry or Battle Armor units so I don't know if they have other status levels that may have been handier to be on the backside or anything.

Fun bit of trivia: The Battleforce 1st edition game uses those symbols on the counters.

Its one reason my home made play sheet has all the in universe symbols on them.

(And probably a reason most electronic and many tabletop wargames have the "proper" military symbols as an option to display on the counter.)

Those were the days hey? Pure nostalgia for this OSR. Well done for doing this.
