Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence

  September is here and the kids are mostly back in school! The shop continues to be busy with a steady stream of regulars, summer tourists passing through and new comers. We just received the new Magic card set that will go on sale this weekend. The new August releases from John Jenkins and King and Country have arrived. Team Miniature have announced that the Mounted Indians will finally be here this month. Most of our partners over in Hong Kong are having major supply chain issues out of China. We have seen many delays and smaller amounts of product. This is happening with so many things we sell at the moment it has been a rough Summer getting product!

    We are starting to gear up for the Chicago show. We leave in about 3 weeks. This is always a great show to buy, search and socialize at.I am trying to get some great proucts in for the show and also trying to grab some collections.We buy collections so if you want to sell shoot us an email.

 

Above is a great diorama using King and Country US Marines and set up by Alex Credidio. Most of these figures are still available and can be found here:  USMC
