I would love to get the first 4 sets, the hanger bay doesn't have any pictures so I don't know what that would be like. It's great that they are bring the 12" Eagles back and finishing the variants, however making them limited to 1,000 each is not a good move. More people than that would want them, it should have been more like 7,000 run. No price listed which is another problem. The last few release went for about $125-$150 range so I would assume around that price. If it's $200 or more, that's too expensive.

They're MILKING IT but this is HUGE!

Breakway Cargo Eagle w/ containers

Exiles Transporter w/ manipulator arm & life pod

Immunity Syndrome Transporter w/ glider & harness

New Adam New Eve Transporter w/ side boosters

Deluxe Hanger Set w/ Metamorph Laboratory Eagle w/ spine booster AND Earthbound Rescue Eagle w/ airlock gantry

Plus accessories... moon buggy's, silo cover, pod stairway, figures.

Very limited quantities = VERY HIGH PRICES I'm sure.

Only a matter of time until they announce a 12" version of the previously unseen Season Three War Cry of Ancross Heavy Weapon Combat Eagle.

Man oh man... I smell the plastic burning already!

That's a dream-nighmare comme true...want them all, can't get them all :)
The lab set with moon buggy was not so expensive, I could find it when it came out, or a few months later, at 39£ on amazon...so let's cross fingers :)

As I say, I've asked to be considered for a set of all five - so hoping some details on pricing and availability are forthcoming soon.
I'm not made of money, so if I think they're too expensive I'll bale out.

However, I'd be happy to share any news I get on this thread as soon as I get it.

Let us know what's going on, Phil.

Will mostly depend on the price…. over the 100 $ range, i'll mainly concentrate on the new Round 2 items ( they need to be built, but are way better in details…and pleasantly larger ).

Even if that Immunity Syndrome's Transporter w/ glider is very tempting….
 
I'm interesting in getting them but it depends on price. If it's reasonable, I'll buy them. Like the others if you getting pricing info, please post.
 
Great to see them back and let's have the other Anderson stuff too. I'd like to see the Shado Mobiles and UFO Interceptor have better figures plus other new stuff.

I must admit they do look good and it would be nice to have the Freighter from "Breakaway" to compliment my VIP Eagle - cost will be the deciding factor for me though.

So ..have to wait a little bit more I guess :)
 
The only thing I like about the Hanger one is the Eagle with the docking tube and the staircase. The rest of it, I don't like. They state that pricing is to be announced early September which is just 1 week away. I'm debating about ordering some of the them but the problem is price (I'm guessing around $300 or more) and space (I don't have any left).

Yes, I got that email too - lots of promised product way into 2018. I do hope they don't overextend and end up either canning stuff or compromising on quality.

Still I've expressed interest in the two 1/72 Hawks, the 1/72 tank set and the 1/24 tank.

Now I just have to win the lottery!!

Yes, I think we can reasonably expect these to be a bit more expensive than the original sets. I'd be prepared to pay a bit more but like the rest of you I'll have to see what the actual price is going to be. It's a bit of a dream come true to get so many variants, the Hawks and tanks too. There's a retro version been added to the list too so could be the Dinky livery. Interesting times :)

Problem is the original Product Enterprises was making high end replicas at a fair price- my 12" Lab Eagle ran in 2005 for around $79(US). Adjusting for inflation it would be about $101 if still in production.
This newest incarnation is not really interested is more focused on the high priced collectors market now...
 
A few months ago I tried to order a 1:18th scale diecast metal car from a local hobby store. He told me that about 4 years ago, the diecast car market dropped and stores don't carry stock anymore. Canadian dealers don't bother getting stock from overseas, they get it from the US. The 1:18th scale cars use to go for $150-$200 CAD now cost $300 CAD. The last 12" Product Enterprise Eagles I bought for $125-$150 CAD years ago. These are limited production run of 1000 each AND they come with the special launch pad platform and a few smaller bits on top of that. Just for the Eagle, I would guess about $300 CAD and when you add the other parts, I would guess about $400-$500 CAD for each new Eagle. That's alot for just one! I would like to get the first 4 and maybe the Hawk and all of that adds up to some major $$$$$. I'm not sure that I can afford that. I still like to get the price so I can decide. My gut is telling me that when Sixteen 12 make the prices public, that the collectors would buy them and they would be sold out in no time.
