Default 1/48 Round2 Space: 1999 Eagle

Anybody have any info on this? I have seen a couple sites, including Hobbylinc and Tower Hobbies are taking preorders. Have our prayers finally come true? Or is this just a box of vaporware?

I'll ask the R2 rep at Wonderfest, but I doubt they will say anything.

Been scouting out any possible info on this.

My suggestion is, until R2 makes an official announcement, treat it
as a rumor/speculation.

Though personally, I'd love to have a 1/48 Eagle in plastic.

Ditto! If it is rumor/speculation, I wonder why several sources are taking preorders? I'll just have to stand by...

Well......

I was looking around for info at HOBBYTALK, and found something interesting.

Check out post #94.

Someone actually called R2 and got confirmation.

Now...here's hoping that they don't decide to cancel the project
like they have done with others.


http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showth...=442273&page=7


Maybe a concentrated e-mail barrage expressing interest might help convince R2 that they'll get a sizable return on their efforts?

Or, maybe some of the RI guys going to WF 15 might be able to get confirmation from the R2 booth as well?

Just a thought.

"SUBJECT TO LICENSOR APPROVAL"

Many hundreds of pictures were taken of that Eagle at Wonderfest, but very few include the sign that was right next to it. There's many a slip 'twixt a cup and a lip, and it isn't 100% certain that this kit will ever happen. That wasn't even an actual test shot of the model, but a 3D print of the files that will be used to make the molds.

Sorry guys, but The Cat's got a valid point here.

Round 2 has been known to make announcements, only to cancel the proposed kits before release.

Though I'd venture to say that if R2 drops the ball on producing the Eagle,their name won't be "Mudd"....

It'll be "SHIT"!

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I interpreted that sign to mean the design details could change based on licensing approval.

Also, they were actively telling people where to pre-order it. Usually that's not possible if it's still not a certain thing.

It is a sure thing as I was with Round2 the whole weekend! Jamie Hood has said it will happen and test shots are already in the works to be sent out! So pre-order yours or get left behind, four companies are already taking pre-orders including Culttvman!

Yes, finally someone who understands! That sign meant that exactly, changes could and will happen, we found a few errors at WF! All that sign is for was this is not the final kit, some things will change before production begins!
