The lump (canopy) on top has a windscreen so my guess is it is Tautened

bitsandkits 2 months in 2 days lol what nonsense, you cant know how long stock is going to last if you have no record of sales because the item is new, they simply made an estimate and it fell short,better to under estimate and make more than to over produce and sit on it for months.

Knowing how the bean counters function in a company that's likely the case. Hell when we get to Sisters I'll bet we go through a YEAR in two days based on current selling rates.

the mail order delay is due to having sold 2 months worth of stock within just 2 days of preorder. Someone clearly underestimated how popular tau would be.

Whether that's supply issues down the line, or maybe they have something else on the go that's taking up production space/time </conspiracy theory butter>
I think Pre-orders might have cut into their plans when they ran out before the release occurred.

Either way Battleforces don't typically drop on release anyways. They tend to come a bit later in the month or the next month normally, if my memory serves me correctly on this.

AwesomusPrime Clear out back stock likely. Big rush on models and folks starting new armies, so sell off the old BForce to folks who don't realize a new, better one is coming.
