Just got back from a trip to LHS got a few small things and some info. My TD order has been pushed back to june 24..... location Canada.

Oh Canada always gets kit way before the UK so I'm thinking if they've been pushed back to the end of June we'll probably get ours sometime in 2023?

I'm sure I will get it in eventually, it's just gonna be busy trying to build 3 kits in same time span for me. Then the choice of which to drive on any given day...

Just pre-ordered the Top Force Evo II, sure the dates will continue to be fluid but at least it's on the docket! 

Also ordered a brand new Monster Beetle to fill in the time beforehand too ;o) 

 

Happy days!

Don't hold your breath for any imminent releases especially in the UK I've just been told by a very reliable source that the hobby company (UK importers) have had a very serious cyber attack and for the last few weeks have been technically closed nothing coming in nothing going out not even answering phone or emails!

Take it you aren’t in the U.K.? I’ve been trying to get hold of a Monster Beetle but they are out of stock everywhere in the U.K.

That's crazy if true. I'm in the US, managed to snag the Monster Beetle from Tower Hobbies, it shipped out last night!

Hopefully, things will be a little different and the Evo gets here despite all the challenges. Was even able to use some discount codes on both! Happy days

Not paid the bills. Lol. Internet and phone down 

Sounds exactly like they've always operated??. 

And people wonder why hobby shops died?. I blame the hobby company..

Well I can't comment because I no nothing about the hobby company? I just enquired about the release date of the topforce evo at my LHS and was told about the "cyber attack" and a completely different shop in a different town I was in told me the exact same thing?? But I can see what you mean about why hobby shops are becoming increasingly scarce if they are not getting decent supplies from the suppliers it must be massively frustrating and stressful for LHS!

Don't know much about them myself 

(They don't seem to promote themselves!) other than, they take 3 weeks minimum to supply a hobbyshop with a part I can get from China in less than a week!!.

Nothing in stock, seems they only order what the hobby shop requests??

Don't get me started on suppliers😡 I've got a 3 year old boiler which I paid an absolute fortune for because it was "apparently" top of the range and will last a life time bla bla bla! it packed up 4 weeks ago and the "supplier" just isn't coming up with the parts! How can you order a load of rubbish from Amazon and get it delivered the same day but this shower of $#@+ can't get a part from one end of a town to the gas engineer who live at the other end of the same town😡😡😡😡  I just hope their liability insurance up to date because they are going to need it!!!!........sorry for the rant.

i remember when the hobby company took over from the previous owners/supplyers 

and the owner of my lhs shop said back then they was a waist of time even the ref was a waist of time also

i cant believe in this day and age that it takes this long for a company to get this issue sorted out in my eyes at the most a few days to get back up and running but this just shows how its run by a bunch of idiots that dont care about the hobby
