I ordered both the Lunar Module and Lunar Rover in mid October, glad I did, because they are both now "sold out" (joining the rest of the Air & Space line), according to Code 3's web site.

Looks like the Alan Shepard Moon Shot and the Apollo Astronaut as well as the Mars Rover are all sold out.

Why did Code 3 stop selling their space items? And more important, any chance they'll re-issue some of the more popular ones (especially the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules)? The Code 3 website still indicates that they're selling space-related models, but that no longer seems to be the case. The astronaut and LM models were okay, but the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo models were absolutely outstanding.

The last time I spoke with my contacts at Code 3, which was about a year ago, they had decided to not go further with their National Air and Space Museum series of models.

While recent after-market sales have been strong, the retail market was slow, or at least slower than they had projected/anticipated.

There was discussion in early 2006 that another company might license the rights to the M-G-A models (and possibly the Mars rover) to restart production, but there has been no further news in that regard. I suspect that we have seen all the Code 3 space models that we are going to see, which is unfortunate.

I may get a chance to see representatives from Code 3 next month at the American International Toy Fair and if I do I will inquire, but at this time, to my knowledge, there are no plans to expand the series.

Thanks for the info. Maybe the Code 3 decision-makers will see what's going on in the secondary market and re-think their decision. We can only hope.
