I was wondering about upcoming addon waves; I read that Facehuggers are supposed to be available fot the public and store soon?
But what about the eggs, sentry guns, Linn and the Marine Sarge? Any chance that those will become available sometimes soon as well or will they stay exclusive for the kickstarter paying gamers?

The only limited item is the Predator Beserker. All other items will be made available to retail once backers orders are fulfilled.

Nopes - you should know by now that this isn't how Prodos operates. Retail orders are filled first, then us Kickstarter backers might get something from whatever remains.

Well retail sales bring more money to finance backers outstanding stuff haha
I just wonder why it takes so long to produce. I mean the forms are like done and just need to produce the miniatures. Molding them shouldn´t take that long and be so super time consuming?

I wouldn't count on that at all. History certainly doesn't back that up. Look at all the add-ons that are currently available at retail vs. how many backers are still waiting for anything. Most likely the additional add-ons will be in retail long before backers have them. The Beserker from the ks was supposed to be exclusive however, so was the resin version of the boardgame, remember? What actually happens with that will have to be seen. I think that if there is a chance for them to make a couple of extra bucks, they will either slightly change it with a different pose, or just release it the way it is and say sorry backers (by means of a middle finger probably...). Stay tuned folks!

Maybe not individually, but by mid-Feb they still had 505 backer parcels to put together, with however many different miniatures in each. They also put the various components for the base-game together on-site at Prodos. Factor in retail orders and you can easily imagine a relatively small company like Prodos getting swamped.

When I was in the army we used to call situations like this a 'charlie foxtrot'.

You are most welcome. I was never shot at so it was not as dangerous as what our troops have gone through over the past 15 years.

Fubar is absolutely applicable in this situation too!
