I don't know if I'm missing something in your sentence but it's supposed to be a "high end collectible" which is ready built and not a model kit as far as I can see.

IT'S NOT A KIT...??!! Well ruffle my skin and call me Frankie...!!! Still, it must be one hell of a model to be coming in at that kinda dough.

I'm all for big scale and realism, and all that other nerdy stuff that we all love, myself included, I just was blown away when I did the dollar conversion.

Then again, over here in the colonies, us settlers are amazed at ANYTHING that's over a hunert dollars...

I wonder what the odds are that anything will actually come of this...

Dorzac pretty much hit the nail on the head:

I seem to be sensing a long-time theme happening here with the supplier Dorzac is talking about...? Have seen this before from other suppliers and is REALLY frustrating. Doesn't matter though...as I said, I've got "other" goodies I can get for my $5000.00...and THEN some...!!

... well, it's been hard for me not to get too excited !! Even created a fun little fake advert to keep my juices flowing!
Please, pretty please, Sixteen/12 ... make this happen!

PS: used my 23" Sixteen/12 to create the advert. See it here: https://flic.kr/p/F4inKv

It is a lot especially with R2's new kit but hopefully it will sell - and then they can plough more money into bringing the diecasts and collectible toys back. Which is what Product Enterprise/Sixteen12 started out as.

Hopefully they've just put that up as a temporary thing and it's an old page they've dragged up. Pretty pointless if it isn't.

Also received, as above, but Edition No 25. Then a second email with deposit invoice of 400 due by May 2016.
I just hope their as quick in producing the bloody things. Still trying not to be too excited. My wife is getting ready to hide all sharp objects incase we get let down AGAIN!

Also received mine - no. 44 for transporter and lab eagle

received another email about special limited edition of the VIP Eagle - never really liked the orange module - much prefer the vanilla plain eagle, still not quite made up my mind about whether the lab eagle is to much.

I have received ANOTHER email from them saying that all the images of the 44" Eagle were being taken down until photos of the development and tooling model was ready. Also not to pay the deposit invoice until they contact us.
They really don't inspire confidence with their customers with a website and emails like this!

Same here and, needless to say, this move seriously puts a dent in my confidence to continue making business with them...

So it's safe to say that Sixteen 12 have sent their purchased Rogue studios model off to China for moulding.
Also I expect Sixteen 12 to come out with a new and improved 1/48 Eagle - that looks exactly the same as the new MPC kit.
