Just my two cents to Round two re-edits:
I understand, that there are people in nostalgic love with the old mpc kits, but I waited years for more accurate and detailed kits to be made (without spending a ransom in aftermarket-parts to get something "close" to the movie-prop).
I remember well the moment, when around 1985 I was able to get the MPC Millennium Falcon with lighting kit - here in Germany (under "Kenner" label) for around 90 dollars - a ransom in the 80's for me as a teenager - and also remembered the box-opening with first looking on the front with a big picture of the 5-footer an then discovering the rediculous reduced detailling and wrong proportions of the kit), and So I also have some nostalgic memories of the other old Star Trek- and the MPC/Kenner Star Wars-kits. But for me there is no reason after the appearing of the finemolds- and later the even more accurate Bandai-kits to cry after the old kits, as much as I enjoyed them in their time of appearing. The only reason would be the bigger size of some models (bought with the imposibility to combine kits because of the random chosen scale) or kits, that were never produced from more accurate companies.
What I would really enjoy would be a re-edit of the Bandai-Star Trek-Kits with updated LED-lighting (Ok, the were preprinted, but in a way I will never be able to be as good in painting it myself), but licensing will prevent that, and some new Star Wars or Star Trek kits like they beautiful did with Polar Lights and the 1/1000 Discovery-Enterprise...
...but that's just my humble opinion
I agree with you regarding the old kits. I remember as a kid in the 80’s being very disappointed when I opened the original Star Destroyer kit. It sucked! [emoji23]
But there were still some kits that I thought were pretty good for back then like the original X-Wing & tydirium shuttle. Now days the bar has definitely been raised by other companies.
Round2 said they would improve on the SW models but I don’t know to what extent.
I’m looking forward to the new SW kits they’re planning. Personally, I’m hoping we get models of the larger ships that are not in scale with Micro Machines! [emoji23]
