Tonbo Heavy Transport - Canceled or Not?
« on: 26 April 2013, 16:09:18 »
I realize it was only released back in March, but then I recently saw this on the "Release Schedule" page of IWM's website.


Quote
On or about week of March 25th, 2013...
 20-5052* Fennec Mech (TRO 3085 Supplemental – 55 ton) $12.50
 
*(Number formerly the cancelled Tonbo Heavy Transport)


So I'm wondering, has it been cancelled since it's release, or Had it been cancelled at one time, then got resurrected?  ???

Sure doesn't look cancelled to me...

My guess is that the product number refers to original plans to make the Tonbo a distribution release, instead of an online-only one. As a result, they had a spare distribution product number to assign to the Fennec.

Thanks guys!   O0  I thought it was weird since it JUST came out a little over a month ago.  I don't guess I remembered that it's an OE Release.  :-\
