Lindberg/Round2 Pirates reissues cancelled?!!
« on: May 04, 2017, 03:34:57 PM »
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?

Anybody here know anything?

I wouldn't doubt it as they do own the rights to the POTC.

They own them lock stock and barrel considering they were a Disney theme park ride originally,lol. So--yeah, if anyone had a leg to stand on....the House of Mouse would win this one if they decided to get them cancelled.

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.
