Yeah, I'm not a fan of these lazy general figures (an unfair characterization, but I'll use it anyway ...). But, you pay a premium to use them and they (and their builds) are so expected that any good Scaper should be ready to face them. I don't really like them, but I take solace in them costing a lot.

Personally, I'm looking forward to him.
I'm looking forward to him as well. I always wondered about the doom and gloom of ranged flying units. Mimring was a ranged flying figure in the very first master's set (yes, I know the argument of special vs. normal attack, but I think that is fairly thin)--as have been most of the dragons since.

I'm excited to see Ullar reborn (he's needed it!) when they get their flying, ranged Kyrie! In fact, I think I'll be calling the next several months Ullar Reborn, in hopes that Wave 8 will be followed by Wave 9's Ullar Protectors.

EDIT: Got interrupted in a post and rdhight swooped me. Good points, all, rdhight.
