    Did you just call me "old"? Yeah, I'm still here...mainly a lurker now, but still here...likewise glad to know that some of the old guard is still around!

    Dunno...the first round became very difficult to pick up shortly after it was released and it still sells pretty well on ebay...guess they made enough $ and there was enough demand to carry on

    I'm assuming you meant to say, "What's SO impressive." To answer, and this is strictly my opinion and nothing more, the tooling is actually very very good. Detailing is nice and paint apps are good as well. The ventral sides of some of the ships are a bit lacking, but the dorsal sides are outstanding. I see many of these as being where Galoob could have gone had they continued.

    As for the Attack Wing, that's the first I'd heard of them...if there are some more new molds, I'll pick them up.

    What's fun for me is that I have absolutely no interest in the gaming pieces and when i purchase them in store and there are gamers there, I go ahead and pull them off the stands just to hear the collective gasps across the room.

    fun fun fun...

    ok...so i promised this with my first post, but I'll try to get some side-by-side pics with micro machines this weekend...

    We've been doing the MM thing online for about 16 years! We're putting the "old" in old guard. Where's my glasses, sonny?

    They put out a Star Trek Catan set for $50, so I guess table gamers will buy Trek enough to keep it selling, but it seems so weird to me that they don't try harder to exploit the collector market.

    Sounds really good, got a sample link? I couldn't think of what to search, which is how I came up with Attack Wing.

    Sample was the Ent-D, it looked pretty poor in my eyes.

    That is awesome! I don't even know where to find one of those stores anymore. My local comic shop does gaming, but I never see any actual product on shelves, they seem to have a room for tournament play but sell none of the stuff.

    Nice, I look forward to that.
