Title: [AMT / Round 2 Klingon Vor'cha] 1:1400 2017 / 2018 Re-release
Post by: Gadgetron_3000 on October 16, 2017, 12:09:58 pm
Hi, Everyone!

Round 2 has put a new placeholder on their website for their latest Star Trek re-pop...the 1:1400 Klingon Vor'cha (kit number AMT1027)!  This will be the first time that this particular kit has ever been re-popped since its original AMT / ERTL release year back in 1992.

No details have been provided at this time except for sample box art.  MSRP will be $29.99 U.S.D..  Round 2 is hoping for a late-2017 or early-2018 release.

Stay tuned for more information as it comes in...

:)

This looks really good! Wasn't even alive yet in '92. So I am glad this is happening =)

Just to note that some places are already taking pre-orders.

I have already done so through CultTVman ...

Any notes of if they did anything different with this kit or is it just a re-pop of the old kit with new box artwork?

Already have one of the old kits I got off of eBay, but it might be worth a look to see if they upgraded anything.

Yeah I'd only get one if they did some upgrades.  I already have a fleet of Vor'chas lol  One of the old kits, and 5 or 6 Playmates ships with lights and sounds that are the exact same size and scale as the AMT kit.

I'm interested; I actually missed the train the very first time the kit was out.

Hi, Everyone!

Here are some newly-released details for the upcoming AMT / Round 2 1:1400 Klingon Vor'cha re-pop (kit number AMT1027):


Aside from those two things, everything else should be the same as the original 1992 AMT / ERTL release.

Check out the attached pictures!

This is one of AMT / ERTL's best Star Trek models as it is highly detailed and accurate.  If you haven't had the opportunity to work on one, come December 2017 / January 2018 will be your chance.  It's highly recommended.

First time I worked on this kit was during our overnight project graduation in 1992

I also have one of the original kits as well as a grunch load of the Playmates versions.  The Playmates ship is the same size as  the model kit.  What I didn't like about the model when I inspected the parts and instructions is that you have to glue all the side panels in...  just one out of alignment and I can see things being a mess!  The Playmates already has some basic lights and sound.  I'm probably going to use some of the more detailed parts from the kit to build up the Playmates ship and utilize the built in battery compartment and supplement the lights.

If the new kit is the same as the old version is does look like a fun build.
