Itís already been released. Saw it in a Southern California hobby shop two weeks ago. Couldnít justify the purchase, even if itís a limited release - just about twice as much as the Panther kit!

It does come with two resin figures, and considering the cost of Meng's resin figures (2 figures are typically running around $35 USD here), I expect that's why it's selling for around $75. But the box felt awful light and empty - just the turret sprue, base and two figures I expect and since the base is easy enough to build from styrene, it just didn't seem worth it.

First off, its a TURRET, not Turrent. There is no "N" in the word. Turrent is not even a word. I don't know why this is a common error, but it comes up often.

Secondly, sorry, no idea when it is set to be released. It sounds way overpriced for just the turret, a base, and a couple figures though.

It has been released.

Sprue Brothers shows it as "IN STOCK" at the moment.

Cheers,
