If you've been online today and surfing 40k sites, I'm sure you've seen the breaking news: GW is going start selling model kits as, well, model kits. It's actually a pretty smart move on their
part. They are old molds, and they are being repurposed for a market that may not care/do not know their relevance or significance.

I'm willing to bet that we may see these (in the US) at Hobbytown USA, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and maybe even Barnes & Noble, Toys R Us and Walmart.
I'm seeing a lot of complaints online about GW's intentions. I'm not sure that it even matters.

In my opinion, this is a smart move to attempt to diversify their customer base. But I'm in the minority about it, apparently.
