April News #5

April 28, 2023

Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence

Hey folks,

April is coming to a close and we just wanted to send out one last round of updates.

This week we received the April releases from John Jenkins Designs, a BMC Toys restock, a pile of model kits, AK Interactive and so much more.

We got lots of new games earlier in the week a more today. I think we got like 27 cartons yesterday.


Yesterday I drove down to Quincy and picked up 700 model kits. Mostly 1/72 and 1/48 aircraft but also some ships including about 40 1/700 scale waterline kits. It will take some time to get these sorted and priced. It will probably be mid-May before they start hitting the shelves.




We will be running the Chicago Toy Soldier Show this September! It will now be called the "Chicagoland Toy Soldier Show!" We hope to see you there. We will be sending out more information soon. I added the hotel link below if you want to attend and book a room.
