Ya never know what will happen next! This is a good thing for the hobby. It puts more old tools in the hands of people who respect it and know how to use it. Good for Round 2!
As far as the mythical warehouse fire, I don't believe it. That's just Ollie's back story to make the inventory sound more exciting and protect future retail sales for Lindberg / Hawk by calling the kits damaged goods being sold at a discount. Note that their story said the warehouse was in California, while the company manufacturing operation was in Michigan. Also note that it would be suspicious none of the desirable kits made it to Ollies. I believe they had just built up too much inventory that didn't sell and they had to liquidate it. Unfortunate that the quantities they dumped will satisfy market demand for some of those kits for a very long time!
The fact that they had issued a lot of old obscure kits with no rhyme or reason leads me to believe that's all the tooling that's currently viable. We can wish for reissues of the cool old 1/32 70s cars and the Mini Lindys, but we'll just have to wait and see. And I don't think we need those old rubber band powered Bonneville cars, they were a drug on the market last time around.
