Regretfully we have cancelled your pre-orders as a consequence.

We understand your disappointment but count on your understanding.

They're not cancelled, they were just never sold to retailers due to objections from Boeing and the threat of some massive reparations I think. Some of the 1:400 ones were still sold on eBay though, and I managed to snag one for myself. Let me link a bit of a "creative" photo I took a couple of days ago .

I've hit up no less than 4 stores in Taiwan...all had them on "pre-order" with no due date of arrival so I got a Trump 757 instead

Any particular reason why Boeing are going after this one ? It is essentially a promotional scheme is it not ?

Now that is hugely disappointing, this model was probably the one i was looking forward to the most last year.

We know the models were produced so now i guess we'll have to see if some of the stock quietly find it's way to ebay, tho if it does it likely won't sell for cheap....

For people interested, it looks like this model is not cancelled altogether. Managed to get my hands on one at my local shop for €50.

40 pounds? That's a steal.

I managed to get my hands on one for a less affordable amount.... and it literally came in a box of chocolates, talk about evading Boeing's lawyers.

Having in mind that they have Boeing’s license for everything, it makes sense it’s unicef the one forcing the model to be cancelled.
