From @thedicetower's twitter feed at gencon:

Looks like another big box expansion. I suspect I should recognize the big creatures but not sure what they are.

i have a dark young in front of me right now and they are huge, much bigger than a shoggoth

heres a pic of my painted shoggoth standing next to a dark young (pre painted) i might repaint the dark young but its actually not a bad paint job.

I think the investigators are:
Mandy Thompson http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/productdetails.cfm?sku=a...
Bob Jenkins http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/productdetails.cfm?sku=a...
and
Minh Thi Phan or Amanda Sharpe http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/productdetails.cfm?sku=a... http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/productdetails.cfm?sku=a...

Edit:
three small monsters:
Goat Spawn
Child of the Goat
Wizard Whaetely

Great! I guess I'm glad I didn't buy that Dunwich Horror monster.

So since I made custom investigators, I'm really interested in knowing which ones are available in this expansion. I recognize Mandy and Bob. One of them can't be seen... can anyone identify the last one?

The investigators are pretty obvious - they're adding those which was originally in Arkham Horror.
So the last four remaining are - Amanda, Bob, Mandy and Monterey.

There is just the corner of a fourth investigator stand visible on the far left of the picture, I believe.

Was thinking about picking up MoM soon, so I'm excited to hear how much this expansion is reported to improve the game. Looks like lots of new monsters and investigators at the very least, and I'm hoping it provides some new combat cards like the last one, so that you never get the same card twice in one game.

WOW. Durr. Somehow I didn't realize that, of course, these should be the remaining four.

It was my life, like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was to let it be.

They really named two of them Amanda and Mandy? laugh

I've got two (or four depending on your preference) words for FFG on this baby;

Proofread
Playtest

whistle

Having said that, I'm very excited for a new expansion for MoM, especially with the monsters minis I wanted the most out of the new releases!

In case you haven't read the forums, it is generally loathed, as are all the expansions.

The good scenarios are great, you just need to weed them out from the bad scenarios. The first three base game scenarios, Yellow Matter from Forbidden Alchemy, and House of Fears are great, `Til Death Do Us Part is decent, and Green-Eyed Boy is good for a couple of plays too; just don't touch Classroom Curses or the Silver Tablet and this is a fine game.

And I have a good feeling about this next expansion. Call me an optimist, but I think it's going to be amazing.

from looking at the minis and setting alone, this looks like a much bigger (and probably more epxensive) expansion, i mean you have alot more miniatures in this expansion. alchemy had 8 and this has at least 11 new miniatures and 2 of those are large miniatures. The setting which is mostly outdoors also indicates theres gonig to be more than 2 new tiles as well.

I reckon call of the wild will be a larger expansion and probably close in price to the base game. I have a feeling this is going to add some great new scenarios

Oh, I almost forgot. I dreamed of Dark Young in Mansions of Madness since the very beginning.

Well that's exaggerating things a little bit, innit. It's got a 7.53 average score and it's ranked 28 in thematic games. It sounds like it's more of a vocal minority of people who "loathe" the game, or nobody's bothered to change their initial ranking after they suddenly discovered they hated it.

I'm easily the most vocal part of the vocal minority who loathe the game... and I don't actually loathe the game.

Don't have the Silver Tablet, but Classroom Curses can be easily adjusted into a great scenario, just needs a little imagination and creativity.

I've been specifically NOT buying the individual miniatures for this reason (well, that and the fact that I am poor!). I had the feeling they were going to be putting them into the expansions.

There's a conspiracy theory that says this boardgame was created by FFG just to get rid of miniatures.
