Harlequins really are looking to be a multi-week release, and it will be a ton of fun to see just how far it goes. I have heard someone saying 4 weeks, but I think it was speculation and not based on anything. 2-3 weeks seems very doable right now at this point, and I have already dug out my old metal Harlies.
I am compiling some rumors, simply because with all the information coming over the last few days (its been crazy here), I wanted to get all the info that had a lot of faith in, into on place.
Another odd thing is that people keep saying the Starweaver is a jetbike. According to these its a dedicated transport of some kind.
Also I have an to answer the leaked pic that a lot of people keep pointing to as a leaked Harlequin pic. Is it real?
via the same source......as the info below
yes its real, its from the cover of next weeks's White Dwarf
