Well I had a nice vacation and now I’m back to the daily grind. There is a bunch of things happening this month. We have Boston Comiccon August 12-14, 2 FNM Magic the Gathering events (Aug 19 a popper event and the 26th a Conspiracy event) and on August 27th we have our Annual Historical Games Day event mini-convention held right here at the Bunker.
We have picked up a few model kit collections this week along with a plastic toy soldier collection, 100’s of loose Warhammer 40K figures (some painted) and a big restock of Gundam Model kits.

Many of you know we are in possession of dozens of Marx and MPC molds and have been re-issuing them for years. At this time many of the molds will be run for perhaps just one last time. Getting these items molded locally has been difficult this past year or so. The small companies get bought up or disappear. Some molds may get scrapped and other items will have a price increase. Some molds may be sold. At this point we are unsure of the future of the reissue business!
If you had your eye on some of these items get them now before they disappear or prices increase. A few items such as the Landing Craft and Wrought Iron fence just came back into stock. We will be sorting and bagging a few more this summer. Some molds have been scrapped some items we have just dozens left on hand.
Here are a couple New items…
A new Version of the MPC WWII Playset and a Marx Missle Set as well as some Payton Military Trucks
Expeditionary Force – 2 sets of 1879 Zulu Warriors and
3 sets British Infantry coming soon!
NEW Paragon Scenics American Civil War Set #2 Firing Line. LINK: ACW
Available in both Blue and Grey.. Each set gives you 2 swoppable head options!
