DS, if you strike out, I've got a spare from the earlier waves you can have for nothin', if you wanna cover the postage from Canada. I have a hunch it'd be cheaper from eBay for you, but lemme know if not. Good hunting.Glad that's being repacked, I've wanted to pick one up - maybe if they repacks these enough the scalpers will leave them alone. o-o I found several Enterprise repacks, so that's a good sign...
Much appreciated, I'm hoping I'll have better luck this run, considering its been repacked a number of times. I did find a USS Vengeance this week, which gives me hope that I'll find the Delorean as well!DS, if you strike out, I've got a spare from the earlier waves you can have for nothin', if you wanna cover the postage from Canada.

Oh, and just to clarify: there's definitely a Super Treasure Hunt AND a regular mainline release of the "new" Delorean.
In other news, the Matchbox Dream Chaser shuttle is starting to hit US retail in NV and CA. Looks unreasonably superb to me.
I bought a few of these beauties when they were called Product Enterprises. Still some of the best ship I ownI'm not sure if it belongs here, but i recently bought the Space 1999 Breakaway set from Sixteen 12. One of my fondest childhood memories is of me getting the Dinky Eagle Transporter and Eagle Freighter for Christmas. I broke one the day I got it and was gutted. This is quite a nostalgia trip for me.
It's actually really nice. About 12 inches long. I think I'm going to break focus and collect the set.
What stores are carrying the Sky Busters line? The two closest Walmart stores don't seem to have them anymore and I don't believe my local Target ever carried them.In other news, the Matchbox Dream Chaser shuttle is starting to hit US retail in NV and CA. Looks unreasonably superb to me.

Hehe, I'm having serious trouble staying in my lane, too. EM greased the road and cut the brake cables. o-o
In (rare, non-EM) other news, a mate of mine spotted the new HW 1/50 Batman: The Animated Series Batwing at a NYC-area Barnes & Noble and nobly grabbed one for me, so very cool of him.
Just got it: it's a totally new tooling, much larger and nicer than the old Kenner diecast, absolutely in HW/Titanium starship scale, almost solid zamac, has a stand with a (slightly) poseable ball joint (though these can become irksome if the plastic dries out and the ball snaps off, if you try to remove it), matte black paint, $8.95 at B&N. Very little detailing whatsoever on its ventral surface but the rest is superb, highly recommend grabbing one.
Wowzers Squidge, many thanks for the pics and info! That's it, I'm sold, those minis will do quite nicely.The vipers are beautiful, although they're about a cm shorter than titanium I'd say.
In the starter pack you get Apollo and Hardball call signs, and two identical raiders.
The lastest expansions released include Starbucks and the generic viper is apparently another Hardball, so I won't pick that up.
Shame, I'd love capital ships too but yeah, this game seems to echo X-Wing , not Armada, dunnit.Thats some great detailing - cant say I'll be tracking them down, but I might have to grab a Cylon Heavy Raider, since the Titanium line skipped it. If the Heavys are $16 as well, I will probably snag one. Since its a combat game, I'm doubting we'll see civilian ships and other interesting designs from the series. Curious to see if they'll ever do capital ships though.
