it's not out yet, i think. as soon as all the 'old' ones sell out the new stock will come in.

Apparently they've started sneaking them out as and when the old boxes are sold out. Same thing is happening with the new tactical boxes.

The new tactical squads have been shipping to UK stores for the last two weeks.

Am I the only one who finds this totally bizaare?

Consider the amount of discussion, rumour-mongering and general anticipatory slavering on these forums and elsewhere, for at least 6 months, about this revamp of GW's major line. Now consider the amount of fanfare with which the product is actually released (so little that many of us aren't sure if it's happened yet).

In a way they don't want people to know they're coming out. Most of us will buy another box or mail order the new sprue . If people who want assault marines know there's a new box coming out then they'll wait for the new box and leave the old. Hence the secrecy and lack of fanfare to make sure GW get rid of the old stock. Clearly my local shops have a surplus of old stock.

While we're on the subject, are they revamping the other boxes that include generic SM sprues? ie BA honour guard and SW blood claws with the new assault marine bodies, for example? Long fangs with the dev bodies sprue?

Do we have to wait for somebody to buy a box and find out?
