actually the entire kit is available in resin, including (but actually purchased separately) the stand, trophy and girl. regularly sold on ebay out of Australia and the casting is not the greatest especially on the small delicate pieces like the trophy figurines.
guess what, for 25$ each even on speculation, I am in, for 2 of them. evidently judging from the email I just got back from them I am order number 40 so someone is buying them, that would seem to be since yesterday. even if it does flake out this promises to be an interesting gamble. certainly better than some dog catcher thingamabob.
but a dog catcher thingamabob in the hand is worth at least a couple of these in the bushes.
If the kit comes out as it is now being talked about, $25 might cover the shipping cost, not the kit cost. One thread on another site has the kit being produced via 3D printing, which would cost a lot more than some people realize, probably more than an original kit on Ebay Don't hold your breath waiting for a new kit. I doubt it will happen. As for the resin copies from Australia, I know someone who bought one and was very displeased This whole subject is getting rather redundant
