July Price rises (19 JUNE)
King & Country have informed us that there will be some prices rises coming into effect on 1 JULY. It does not affect recent releases.
Naturally price rises are not welcomed by K&C,dealers or collectors. However K&C has a massive inventrory of nearly 2,000 items. Often some of the more popular items have more than one production run and as time goes by the production costs can increase considerably. The painting costs of painting a further production run are the same as for a new releases which might have a higher retail price.
From a dealer perspective there are some items where I would rather have a price increase than not have the item available any more.
At the time of writing this I am just starting to include price rises in each relevant category. I will indicate here when completed.
Some indications are :
US$39-$42 will become $45
US$49 will become US$55
US$95-105 will become US$119.
Main areas to look out for are Lighthorse, Egypt, Life of Jesus, Greeks, English Civil War, some recent French Hussars, British ,Paras.
