Asking questions is great, however, asking this question that nobody knows the answer to tends to become tedious.

Honestly lay off, isnt any worse then a want list thread those are abundant and never ending.

He's just trying to ask the community whats up. No need to jump down his throat. Who knows maybe someone was just about to post some rumors.

You are right, this isn't any worse than a wish list thread, just equal to it. The "community" that can answer his question consists of 2 maybe 3 people from this forum. All of which can not or do not announce early. So either you wait or... you wait.

I have insider information.

Gemini was going to release everybody's remaining wishlist items this month, to answer all your hopes and dreams.

But this thread annoyed them so much, they've decided to go out of business instead.

What happens is every few months a handful of 12-17 year olds jump on these forums and ask every "basic" question possible. It becomes annoying, but I guess it's like taking on a new group of kindergarteners.

Sad part is a lot of the "noobs" jump on the forum guns blazing with all the answers and attitude.

Yeah, a bit less attitude on the boards would be nice. Its my New Years resolution to be a bit more cheerful on the message boards.

As for the same questions over and over it happens across all age groups. The older guys on here are guilty of all the same things as well.

Ok, so just because I asked a question that no-one knows the answer to automatically makes me an immature idiot? The newer people on here (such as me) ask so many questions because they are new to this hobby and are just curious. Not everyone starts out on the same level of understanding of something. Getting mad at a newcomer to a hobby for having questions is like yelling at a 4 year old for not being able to read a textbook.

When you're new to some community, it's wise to observe and learn how things work there.

If you observed, you'd see that some person makes a thread like this every other month. And it's always pointless.

Well I was talking more about questions in general. Because it seems like every time a newcomer asks a question, the old dudes seem to get mad at them. About THIS thread though, you're right. Now that I looked a bit more, there is one of these like every month.

Just Chillax. We're just barely over halfway through January. I don't even think the January releases have hit the retailers yet.

I can tell you when it wont be happening. It wont happen this week, and probably wont happen next week either. We just started shipping out the January releases. Those have to be received by all the retailers before we even consider announcing the new stuff.
Best guess is they will come out the week of January 31st.
Don't forget that Chinese New Year is upcoming and all the factories close down during that period as well.

Given that we saw rather lackluster 1:400 (but amazing 1:200 ones), I don't mind waiting for February. Curious, but not to the death. I picked up my two Jet-X AA MD-82's and those cost me quite a lot!!! I picked up 4 of them too!

You forgot the United A350, because making a 737-2/3/5 would be a waste.
