Why yes I can, but that doesn't at all help with what it is.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

True, but with a little modification, they can become perfect(Minus Swastika) SA or SS uniforms, which is exactly what I'll be using them for....

Can anyone say undead Piltogg super-soldier Hero units?

can anyone say goddard's law?

Yes, I can also say 'Sounds like an old Alternate History WW2 game called Uber Soldier.' Of course, that game had you playing as a revived-from-the-dead Lieutenant in the SS. Angered at being cheated out of an after life, you go on a living Piltogg killing spree. I don't think the fan base for that game ever really developed.....

Ha ha, I can't imagine why not. But I would have pointed to the later chapters of Wolfenstein first, as the defining classic in the Nazi-superzombie-killing genre.

Not to be dangerously on-topic, but check out the article in Gizmodo:

I love that temple escape set! Too bad it doesn't come out until February.

Actually... My local Toys-R-Us had a few boxes of that in stock and on the shelf before Saturnalia. (Didn't get one, alas; I'll definitely be saving up for it now, though.)

Here is a short list of observations I am able to make at 4:11 AM:

1.)I spy with my little eye something that is a Rocket Propelled Grenade!
2.)I guess it's acceptable to fight communism, but Nazis are strictly off limits.
3.)You may hate peach skin, but if you hate the dark tanned stuff you're being racist.
4.)Some manner of twistable knob on the left side of the temple
5.)Gas cans made with revolvers. Never woulda thunk it.
6.)I would not be shocked if the red hound faces on the temple spat something
7.)Finally a dark green croc.
8.)Is that new hair on the cutlass-wielding minifig or the leather helmet?

In response to #8 on your list, I'm guessing that it's hair, as that looks suspiciously like Cate Blanchett's character in the one photo I've seen of her.

Uggg , Im upset their using the wild west lego rifles .
I was hoping that would give in and give them the SMGs that came in some of the bigger batmat sets .

Speaking of wild west , would it kill them to make an acceptable lego combat helmit?

They have the exact same hats as the Union and Confederate Minifigs .

The Officer gets a Batman pistol. And as far as lego combat helm go, to the brikwar commander all helmets are acceptable combat helmets. If you're really dying for a helmet a minifig could eat soup out of, I think megabloks had some a while back. Two more things that I noticed:
9: Those creatures have six legs and therefore are more than likely not spiders.
10: One of the figures has long black hair. This would be excellent for the community-made metal army.
