I apologize for not completing my first posting of this subject. I
meant to write more but time pressed me to send it sooner than
expected. Since I didn't get it right the first time, I will try to
do better now.
When I wrote the word "Collector's Month" I took the definition out
of the Hobo Tim's International Dictionary! It says that a
Collector's Month is any month that MTL will definitely not sell out
of their releases for quite a long time!
As I thumb my way thru the dictionary I also find this word, "Sell-
out Month". The definition of a Sell-out Month is any month where an
anticipated release is due to come out and MTL is sweating and
wondering if they indeed made enough items to satisfy the first
release! Then the examples state past and future items. Gunderson
Husky, New Track system, GP35 for the past releases and PS2 two bay
hoppers, New Track system Turnouts & larger radius circles, and GP7/9
for the future releases.
So, I hope these terms will clarify any wrong messages I might have
conveyed in the previous posting. Just stating mine and other Z
scalers verbal/written statements on this months releases.
