Round 2 Models: Things Are Getting Exciting!

Have you ever had news that you wanted to shout to the world but you couldn’t? That’s kind of where I’m at right now. Things are getting exciting here in Round 2 Models-land. We’ve got a couple great shows coming up.

We will be setting up at C2E2, in Chicago, IL April 13-15. I’ve attended the show the last couple of years and I love it personally. The show focuses on comic books, movies and pop-culture of all kinds. We are looking at a show exclusive to sell at the show. We’ll see what we can do. Besides model kits, we’ll be displaying our other lines like Forever Fun seasonal products, Captain Action and Silver Screen Machines die-cast cars as well.

We are also gearing up for Wonderfest in a big way. I cant wait to unveil this year’s product announcements. I’ve stated that I don’t want to announce anything that we don’t have a sculpt or mockup for. I’m working hurriedly to be sure I don’t have to bite my tongue about anything. If all goes well, we will have more new kits out by the end of the year than just the 1:350 scale U.S.S. Enterprise™! I really, REALLY wish I could say more!

    Hey Jamie, sounds interesting!

    I know I am being a pest but could we please have a club update before.the end of February?

  5. JamieH says:

    edge- It has been in the works for a while now and is finished. There were a few things we wanted to work out before sending it. Possibly today, maybe tomorrow, surely by the end of the month.

  6. edge10 says:

    It has been noted by myself and others it kinda looks like a Reliant coming out of that monkey’s ear. Very interesting…

  7. Specifically, a 1/2500 SCALE RELIANT COMING OUT OF THE MONKEY’S EAR!! That was just wishful thinking. Sorry folks, Lol!

  8. ssquibb79 says:

    hopefully several 2500 scale kits!!!, plus the Big E!!

  9. BatToys says:

    I’m hoping a 1966 Batcopter and a 1/6 Batmobile.

    Will a 350 test shot be given as a prize to 1701 club members?
    That would make people wish they joined right away.

    Look forward to meeting you at C2E2.

    Any estimate on how long it would take to cut the tooling gor a big 1/350 scale kit?

  11. JamieH says:

    edge10- it usually takes 6-8 weeks to cut tools for an entire kit.

    I just love this process of waiting for news
    Regarding new model kits the whole thing kinda
    Makes you feel like a kid again. The anticipation,
    Speculation, rumors and such is well… a
    Kid around December.

    I am also pleased that Round 2 really dose get
    Into the spirit of the anticipation process also,
    I can only imagine how it must have felt when
    Telling folks that RC2 was going to produce a
    Museum quality 1/350 scale 1701.

    One word perhaps….Santa

    Well I all for that in a Christmas stocking, and speaking
    Of Santa and wishful thinking I would hope that you
    Folks at the big R2 will push out some more OOP
    Retools, they really are practical all the way around on.

    My suggestions for at least 2013 or 2014 would be;

    Retooled Kits

    Star Trek DS9 Runabout w/ interior ( really nice size but
    Really need a interior to make it complete)
    * molded in clear..perhaps
    * battle damage markings and new set of decals.

    Cardassian Galor Class Warship w/ additional
    Parts to make either Galor or Keldon class ( really
    Just the same ship with some extra equipment).
    * colored clear parts
    * battle damage decals.
    * include a mini U.S.S. Defiant or Cardassian
    Scout ship.

    Star Trek TOS Galileo 7 shuttlecraft
    * parts and hull upgrade.
    * new set of decals.
    * Spock and Kirk seated figuers
    * original long box packaging.

    New Tooling

    Nebula class starship (TNG)
    * Would go Great next to the AMT/Ertl 1701D
    * Addtional parts to make either USS Phoenix
    Or USS Sutherland Nebula types.
    * clear colored parts.

    Star Trek 2013 Movie U.S.S. Enterprise ( just joking…I think)?

    1/350 Scale

    U.S.S. Reliant ( in scale with the Polar Lights 1701A)
    Klingon Bird of Prey ( also in scale with PL 1701A)

    1/2500 Scale

    U.S.S Reliant
    Akira Class Federation starship
    U.S.S. Defiant
    Klingon Battle Cruiser ( Movie Version)

    Well that the works! Thanks JamieH for all your hard
    Work bringing modelers everywhere something nice
    To look forward to.

    Looking forward to the future.
