Yesterday, AMERICAN_GRENADIER over at the Small Scale Military Headquarters mentioned that JSI would be making a special edition 1/18 F-14 Tomcat, limited to 250 pieces and carrying an MSRP of $280. Today, Foxhole Toys confirmed this:
We can confirm this latest JSI info and the $280 MSRP American Grenadier announced.
These pieces were to go (did go?) to Hobby shows showcasing JSI & Merit. We and other retailers have been offered these pieces at a much higher price which in turn costs the consumer more as well.
I’m sure more info on what exactly the differences will be will come soon enough…and with photos.
Cheers and ‘early’ Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!
So what could this F-14 Tomcat be? Could it be a VF-84 Jolly Rogers version in one of the numerous paint schemes that the F-14A Tomcat was painted in over the years? A Bombcat 1/18 F-14B from the later VF-103 Jolly Rogers? A last cruise 1/18 F-14D Super Tomcat? A VF-154 Black Knights or VF-41 Black Aces Bombcat? Or perhaps it’s a Jolly Rogers bird with the deck gear, crew, and vehicles shown at iHobby EXPO? The latter would certainly explain the increased price point.
