Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

Hi Guys, I can understand your frustration. We too get frustrated with Facebook from time-to-time. I don't think its user friendly, although it does serve a purpose. Here's a link to the FOV web site: http://forcesofvalor.com/index.php While the site is still far from complete, FOV has been doing a ...

Re: No more 1/18 Planes?

Shipping costs have risen dramatically over the past few years and now that the USPS has switched to a dimensional/weight shipping methodology, the costs are prohibitive, particularly if you are shipping coast-to-coast. Some of the latest Corgi 1:72 scale heavies are extremely expensive to ship now,...

Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

I doubt the Girls und Panzer line will divert much of their attention away from their other lines. For openers, they are big on R/C, so everything you see in the G&P line is also being designed for their standard R/C line. Slap a different logo on the vehicle, change around the packaging, and voila,...

Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

Hi, I think that what you have to remember is that Waltersons is catering to multiple markets across the globe. While the Girls und Panzers does seem strange, it apparently has caught on in Japan, a key market for them. Likewise, while we did a pass on the JGSDF Chinook helicopter, it probably is do...

Re: The Great Motor Pool Give Away

I think they were between $300-$400 and that was way back in 2004, a lifetime ago in the diecast business.

Re: The Great Motor Pool Give Away

Hi, Just a hunch, but I think the new owners will bring back a new version of the King Tiger, perhaps the one they now have running at the Saumur Museum in France. Remember, this is a brand new company that is doing their own manufacturing. Previously, Unimax contracted with an outside factory to pr...

The Great Motor Pool Give Away

In year’s past, we would often times run a promotion where we ended up giving away a freebie as a token of our appreciation. For 2018, we decided to resurrect this give away, this time with a bit of a twist. Beginning May 1st and ending December 31st, 2018, whom ever purchases the most product from ...

Re: Is the new FOV doing anything?

Hello All, Don't know what to tell you fellas. When last we spoke to Waltersons, they were hard at work developing the FOV series, both on the ground and in the air. It doesn't appear as if they attended this week's Hobby Show in Beijing, so their next opportunity to display their wares is in early ...

Re: FOV

Hello, For larger and heavier items, Canada will always be behind the eight ball vis a vis the US. When a carton reaches 4-pounds, First Class Mail rates are dispensed with by the USPS and everything must go via Priority Mail. Second, there's the rate conversion where Canada usually gets screwed ove...

Re: FOV

AFerg, I can see your point, however, what you really need is a retailer in Canada that can service your needs, thereby offering domestic shipping rates, as opposed to working with US or European retailers. Asking the manufacturer to keep stripping away/streamlining the packaging is what happened to...

Re: FOV Update

Hello All, I got a message from Waltersons concerning the FOV line and thought I'd share it with you. First off, we are expecting the first four warships to arrive some time next week. This includes the USS Arizona, HMS Ark Royal, DKM Bismarck and USS Enterprise. The second set of warships will like...

Re: FOV

Hello All, Its been quite awhile since we last posted here so thank you for activating our account and hopefully we can shed a little light on the matter. In regard to FOV, the new owners are taking their time getting things right, perhaps at the consternation of their fans, who would like to see th...
