Chris Norman I was hoping to get a couple of the vehicles, obviously within a Gundam order I think it is a silly thing going on with them, can't they just let both be sold here.....would be nice like

Choppa Nutta Yeah, you can tell Disney does not regard the fan base as a priority at all......
Anyhow just ordered the AT-ST about £15 delivered to the UK, a belated birthday present to myself
I did fancy the X Wing and Tie Fighter in 1/48th too, oh well, at least I got one of them
Anyhow thanks Sebastian for bringing this to our attention.

Brent Devitt Thanks for the timely info. I have recently completed the two Tie-fighters (and mounted them onto bookends).
I ordered the X-wing this morning from Amazon before the September 20 deadline.
Disney only cares about protecting their bottom line and licensing rights (and they are one of the best at doing so. If you infringe, they will serve you with legal papers before you know what is happening). Ordering on-line was an easy way to get around it though (a.k.a. Gray marketing).

Sebastian Osaer There's no proof that Revell is behind this, it's possible and the fact that so far only Bandai model kits are affected makes it even more suspicious, but Disney are fairly well known for being a bunch of greedy *fill in expletive of your choice here* I don't intend to boycott Revell but if they release the Finemolds Falcon at the price I've seen mentioned ($300!!) they can stick it up...well, you get the idea. I hope we'll still be able to get the Bandai kits at a decent price somewhere. I'd really like to get my hands on the Star Destroyer if they ever release it!

Sebastian Osaer @Brent, it's strange, technically HLJ should be in that gray area as well. They're resellers, not distributors...

M.Julian Marles Yeah I saw Revell make some weird announcement on FB, their SW kits are not very good. I suppose we will look to buy online from tertiary sources ...just like the Italeri/Tamiya co-kits!
Choppa Nutta well, one has to wonder what the discrepancy between the official statement and what has been said behind closed doors is
Either way it sucks chocolate salty balls !!
Still waiting for At-ST though.....
