JSI Halftrack release dates?

Post by MCalamari » Tue Feb 09, 2010 7:50 pm

I was wondering if anybody knows when JSI might release its various halftracks?

I swear I've seen one of these JSI halftracks (US) sitting on the shelf at my local hobby shop (along with 2 JSI F14s, a couple JSI Tigers, and a JSI Panther). Are you sure they aren't out yet?

EDIT
Here's a link to a place selling - probably not the only one:

It could be the S1 21c version. They look identical :wink:

First, thanks for the link.

Though the product number on the site says JSI, the serial number painted on the bumper of the photo shown on the site is "A122" and identical to the 21c M16A1.

I was hoping JSI would repaint all of the 21c halftracks and include them in new boxes.

Changing the subject slight, any chance of FoV re-releasing their M16A1?

as far as I know the FoV M16 is still available, but it really pales in comparison to the 21st one and it looks like a toy

Yea the real one has cuts in the sides to allow the ammo drums to swing through and the sides fold down.

This is what im doing

Both the Forces of Valor and JSI versions are available from the distributor as far as I know, buy why would most retailers even bother carrying them when many still have 21st Century inventory of this vehicle in multiple schemes?

If JSI and Merit were expecting any significant sales of this item in the U.S. market then they did not do their homework, as there were still plenty of of the 21st Century version around @ ~$35 and probably still are.

Of course, the FoV versions is a little less expensive but if you can get the 21st Century for $35 or the FOV for $30 what would you do? Right.
