Sure seems like good times are happening after a long dry spell. Chap Mei has released another new line of figures! It does use a couple of old molds like the motorcycle, but in true Chap Mei form, they are used well. And there is plenty of new sculpting happening as well!
This line is called "Sentinel 1"
There are some two figure packs, four figure packs, and a single figure packed with a small vehicle.
It appears to be a military or more like, mercenary type line. Probably to capitalize on all the military video games that are so hot right now. The figures all appear to be new sculpts. They all have additional articulation in the knees and elbows! Even the big guy with the bare arms! The figures in the two figure pack have different paint schemes than the ones in the four figure packs, and the ones with the vehicles! Some of them so much so, that they could easily be different characters...

Yes, I am happy to see more articulation. The range of motion could be better, but at least they are showing improvement! The "bomb disposal" guy, I think his name is Patch, even has ball jointed shoulders!
Don't really know Starcraft, is Ghost similar to a character from that?
