Well, I think that nicely answers any questions folks might still have.

I am so looking forward to getting my hands on a bunch of classic Wasp miniatures.

For a bit of nostalgia, I think I will just have to paint one in homage to the paint job of the Wasp on Ral Partha Light Lance box set [10-802]  >:D
Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

Well hopefully It won't take too long after GenCon for the Wasp to go back into production and the Valkyrie to enter production :D

I know this is nit-picking, but: Did they actually announce an official return to production? It says that a small number will be available in the booth, but it doesn't actually say what IWM's longer-term plans might be.

And they didn't say it wasn't. Nor did they say there'd be a limited edition 8" Natasha Kerensky figure, with optional tee-shirt. Or not.

IWM bust a gut to get some to GenCon. I believe we can take that as a positive sign - at the busiest time of the year for them, they did that. Let them come back from GenCon, shed the con crud, and update their schedules.

Go forth, and pick nits no more ;)

Oh, I take it as an extremely positive sign. I just don't want Speck to have to go into "expectation management mode" too often before they actually announce something.

Regarding the Wasp & Valkyrie . . . the Wasp production was halted when the lawsuit came out, and the Valkyrie was supposed to be the next quarter's mini IIRC- I was wanting a Marauder or Warhammer!  enough of the lights!-  While it takes some time to plug it back into the schedule I imagine, this is probably left over Wasp inventory from the hold and maybe the first runs of the Valkyrie . . . hopefully they are plugged back into blocks at some point.

And since those MAD-7D arms really look like they belong on a Classic MAD-3R . . . hopefully that is on the way.

Nope. Different source art, and completely different project. One's been complete for a year, the other hasn't even been discussed.
