Mike,


I haven't taken the time to read all of the pages of this post, so I hope that I am not asking a question that has been answered previously. Has there ever been any talk about doing a group buy from the site members for an exclusive paint scheme on a 1/18 plane?

I have too. I have had it preordered since the day it came up. I almost forgot about it as I am still waiting on the MTS AT SBD Dauntless.

How long has it been? He usually takes a few months off from us b/w bits of info but this seems like the longest hiatus since we started direct from the source.

I suspect 2008 is going to be a very dry year as far as communications between us and the manufacturers are concerned.

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the answer. Will BBI be making any WWII German Action figures, Armor, or Aircraft?

If there's nothing to report on, we can't expect any noise from the reps. I'm sure if the news breaks on an upcoming piece, we'll hear about it.

...not exactly...
if it wasn't for 'topnotch97' on the bbi Target/TRU Finds, most of us wouldn't have known that bbi has released 4 new D-Day Normandy 'repaints' that can be found at TRU...so no thanks to the reps for this one...
instead, THANK YOU topnotch97!

I guess figures aren't important enough to make any noise about then. Have to lodge a complaint against the rep for the lack of info on that one. :D

Has the ever been any ideas of a V-22 thrown at any of the manufacturers? I'd really like to see something that can transport some trrops or small equip. I do a lot of dio pics on joedios.com. Any word on how long the delay will be on the F-16 and 18 aggressors? Thanks!!
