SdKfz 250/1: Fan Choice Kit Preview Pictures!
We’re constantly bombarded with requests for specific armored vehicles to release as new kits, but there’s just not enough time for us to release them all.Last month we held a poll to decide which will be the first kit to be released based on the requests of our friends and fans. Eight nominations were selected to represent a wide cross-section of vehicles from World War One to the present and the clear victor was the SdKfz 150 Halftrack. Seeing as this fits perfectly with our current Barbarossa 41 series, we wasted no time time coming up with a couple of prototype models. The Ausf A version is going into immediate production as part of the Barbarossa 41 collection and we’ll release the Ausf B version (or some other variant) at a later date. Stay tuned for more details!
Thanks Dan. That is all I need to know. If there is no 251 coming up then the 250 will have to be on the shopping list. 😉
Thanks for clarifying that. How many minifigs will fit into the 251? Will it carry the 10 man squad or is this a cut down version like the 250 with room for only 4?
There is no 251 slated for production. I’m sorry if you were under that impression.
I just need something clarified. You mentioned that the model selected as the Brickmania Fan Choice Winner to be released was the SdKfz 150. However you show pictures of a SdKfz 250/1 Ausf B and a SdKfz 251 Ausf A. I am a little confused.
Also the SdKfz 251 seems to be the same size as the smaller 250. What I am after is a SdKfz that can transport a 10 man squad. The 251 model seems smaller than your earlier version http://brickmaniatoys.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/218_coverv2l.jpg can you clarify how big the 251 will be in comparison to the 250? Also how many minifigs will fit in your 251 model coming up?
I’m sorry there was a type-o in the caption. They’re all 250/1s.
Its coming out this week
Is it coming out on monday
make some good attachments for it like the anti tank cannon, stuka motars and weapons
The only place to get any of the new Brickmania kits is from http://www.brickmania.com. There is simply too much demand (and not enough supply) for us to keep up with reseller orders on top of our own individual orders.
Are you going to make the ausf B with the minifgure
The figure is one of the guys from the Wehrmacht Troop Pack, which is already available. For the moment I’m only the Ausf A version is going into production. Ausf B will be available later.
When will it come out?
Parts have now been ordered, so probably next week.
will the first one come with the minifig?
No, you can get minifigs separately.
the old one was way cooler im sorry but i’d much rather have it sad to say i wont be buying this one 🙁
I’ve never made this before.
awsome!!!!!!!!!! when does it come out
I REALLY HOPE its like $100
It will be less than $100
Thats cool would it be less than $50 or higher than $50
Tentative price is $95
Are they coming out this moth or next month
I can’t wait for these to come out! I hope they will be under 200 bucks!
