A Quick Update from Revell USA

Grab a mug, refill it with coffee and take a quick read over recent new regarding Revell's purchase by a German group Blitz.

If you need a flash refresher, Hobbico, one of the hobby's biggest players, filed for bankruptcy a few months ago, and Revell USA was acquired by Blitz for a steamy $3.9 million. We've been left in the dark mostly, wondering about the future of one of our favorite kit makers. What will happen to all the tooling? Will there be new kits? Well, we've got a bit of an update from Revell USA, and it's an exciting update:

"Dear Revell fans,
Revell USA, LLC and Revell GmbH are now one consolidated company. We are currently producing new products for the US market, developing a new website and updating the consumer service process. Unfortunately we are unable to service parts requests at this time but we will resume as soon as possible. Your patience is greatly appreciated."

What kits are you hoping to see arrive once this merger is complete? Have any thoughts about this consolidation between Revell USA, LLC and Revell GmbH? Let us know in the comments below.
