But back then, Volks release an AF in 97 when MM are all available. That was already a surprise. Now re-issue AF? I can't imagine what's next.

BUt this is great, it brings down the price of those who hold on to the older kits. As they got to be some that concern Volks will release other older kits, as such, sell their ones at a lower price.
This is more of an aircraft than a robot, there's no need for it to be MM...

I'm not worried about this re-issue bringing down the value of my old original, since I bought the kit for building, not for selling.

Did anyone else notice that they're also releasing the Queen and Meagalla that were originally sold as pre-paints as actual kits?

I noticed. I want that Megaira/Megaella/whateveryouwannacallher. :)

I didn't know that she was previously only available as a pre-painted. Hopefully HLJ wil stock her. That series of Volks 1:8 figures is really becoming a quality line-up.

I didn't mention the other day, and many of you would probably have noticed they are re-releasing the Eleshis. Quite some unusual choices in this batch of re-issues.

Hm... I just wish they would get around to releasing something new. :(

Of course!

I'm THRILLED about the new WSC stuff, but there's still plenty more new MH left undone, and Volks has a special style all its own...

After seeing Silicon Tribe Calvary R... there's still plenty of room for Volks to do a nicer rendition. :)

A role reversal btwn. Volks and WSC. I am pleasantly surprise
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Volks booth at WF Summer.

According to the guy I know who took this pic, the little stickers you can see on Queen and whatnot state that their stock had sold out, and you were too slow to come up and buy one.


... and I didn't get my LED V3. :(

So no queen or eleshis or air headd at hlj anytime soon... unless they make more stock (or have stock they didn't take to WF).

No sign of any new kits either?

I guess it's really time for WSC to steal the spotlight.
