Optimism regarding the Hornby Corgi Buyout

Corgi's Sales Manager just called; everything sounds GOOD!

For starters, a month-by-month production schedule is to be created next week. For those of you who have been waiting on new Corgi items, this is incredible news! It's been quite some time since Corgi has released any new products - everything had simply been designated as "delayed". To actually have production moving forward and an actual release schedule again will be worth celebrating!

From everyone I've talked to and everything I've read, Hornby is very good at turning companies around. In addition, Hornby plans to invest quite a bit of money in marketing the Corgi brand. While we will have to see what actually happens, at this point, we are cautiously optimistic about Hornby's involvement with the Corgi Classics line.
