Shame, I think my Lucky statue was really well done so feel bad for fans of the line.

Lol I did a Google search and this is what I came up with they've put dechirico7 sentence and then my sentence together and then labelled it July 29th I can't make any sense that!



So no one else has heard of the HT jr cancellation ?

Ridiculous.
So we wont be seeing the two new girls either.
I think Diamond Select is pulling the plug on them, now that they own GG.
They probably didn't see enough profit. Which I cant see, they are charging more than enough of these. A couple years ago these had great detail compared to PFs. Now, not so much. GG was never known for timing.

It doesnt help that GG had the pre-order turned off on their site. Duhhhhh....

I rang the shop today it turns out that the person that wrote the email did not word it correctly! it was meant to say that the local distributor here will not be supplying Gentle Giant products any more.

So the good news is that she's not cancelled (GOOD) and I'll just have to pre-order her from someone overseas now!



"When we were advised that this unit could no longer be supplied we were also advised of a number of cancelled Gentle Giants products.
Unfortunately when we originally contacted you to advise that we are no longer able to secure this stock for you we accidentally listed the reason as ‘Cancelled by the Manufacturer’ instead of ‘Cancelled by the Supplier’
I would like to apologise for the confusion this may have caused."

No reply from Gentle Giant on the matter (of Junior/Fireball being cancelled)

I take this as good news.

We should face the truth hat Gentle Giant is gone. It’s just part of Diamond Select now. And DS have never been known for high-end collectibles.

Too bad, but expected based on all we're seeing.
