they do this as most GW stores have limited shelf and blister rack space.

GW often removes lines from its stores but keeps them on mailorder. These thend to be slow moving ones that will make way for something else.

SO them taking more (there aint much DE blisters a store can order now btw) DE and the ratlings off is probably only to make more space in the 40k section for the DA release.

Like i said they do it all the time so don't get excited.

Orks will be within the next 18 mnths actually (sooner than you think).

Necrons will be end of 2009 at the very earliest so don't hold your breath there ppl.

We are due a totaly New Codex - never seen before one - before the necrons arrive.

Drop pods are going to be out before the summer.....

.... now you may get excited.

yeah i've seen that aswell though i'm doublting it massivly the reason is that about a year ago the powers of the studio (i was inside the studio asking btw) stated they are doing one SM codex a year - or near enough. Its an almost golden, cast in stone thing as marines = SHED LOADS OF CASH!
Now re-releasing an already exsiting dex only makes money by introducing new units to the game. Ok a new SM dex could introduce some new models and maybe unit. BUT thats what the other dex's are doing anyway. Plus they acutually generate more £ as the conversion kits are big sellers (the upgrade kits sold like hot cakes for the BT's). Also re doing a codex that is pretty new means that ppl are only going to add in a few new things, an older dex gets more ppl buying more models.
The studio is driven by the business (not ppl wanting changes as some wold love to believe), ok marines are the big seller so you would think a new dex would make more money. Actually thats wrong, the marines will sell regardless of how new or old the dex is. It could be 15 years old and they would still out sell all the other 40k races.
This is why it really feels like mistaken identity and this "SM redux" should read Blood Angles or Space Wolves.
