Lindberg/Round2 Pirates reissues cancelled?!!

My local hobby shop guy called me today to tell me the two Hex Marks the Spot kits I preordered were now listed as discontinued by the manufacturer and removed from his order system!!

NOOOOOOO!!! What happened?!! Did Disney have something to do with this?

Maybe it's true but I'd be surprised. It's not the first time I've seen a hobby shop do something like this.

I seem to remember that R2 announced a reissue of the Bigfoot then cancelled it............then brought it back again.

Usually I would take such news from a hobby shop with a huge grain of salt but, there may be some truth to this. The kits were listed on Tower Hobbies and Steven's International with pricing and release date info but are now gone/removed. I couldn't find any info on Round 2's actual web site.

Just posted on Cultmans site

Earlier this week, Round 2 sales reps sent out an email to distributors indicating some kits had been cancelled. * And then, literally, an hour later, they uncancelled one of the kits.

First the good news. *Hex Marks the Spot, the reissue of the old MPC kit, has NOT been canceled. * In the original notice sent to distributors, the kit was on the cancellation list. * But the powers that be, promptly uncancelled the kit. * So it is still good to go for later in the year. *Exact release time is now To Be Announced.

Remember, it's not just a hobby, it's an obsession!

Well it's not like the hobby store made it up if Round 2 said it was cancelled and then reversed their decision. They must have told Great Planes/Tower and Stevens, since those wholesalers/retailers had removed the kits. Any local shops who had them on pre order would have had their orders cancelled too. Kind of a dumb move on Round 2's part.
