From our vantage point, it looks as though Santa may be hustling down the chimney with some late tidings. According to one distributor, Panzerstahl’s eagerly awaited limited edition range will likely show up in December making them neat if tardy stocking stuffers hanging from the fireplace. Meanwhile, War Master’s next wave of diecast military vehicles and aircraft will probably roll in some time in late November. While not a disaster, you can surely bet collectors and gift givers will be snatching them up by the bucket load thanks to their affordable price, heft, sharp detail and subject matter.
If you’re a Minichamps fan-boy, then you know full well that their line is always catcher’s catch can, with several products announced eons ago hopefully finding their way onto Santa’s sled this holiday season. Otherwise, you can always hope for next year or pick up some of their recently-released products finally making it to market. And then there’s Corgi, who is still indicating that their 1:72 scale Avro Lancaster and Short Stirling bombers are circling Santa’s house awaiting clearance to land by his elves. Let’s hope both do show up since new renditions of each aircraft are supposedly coming in early 2013.
