I went with the last option as it's actually what I've been doing. For some other vehicles I just bought the vintage and if they ever get remade then I may get the new ones.

The 2 vehicles that were on my list was the Bridge Layer and Wolverine.
I bought both today. My local had it, so I snagged it pretty cheap.
The third, isn't really a vehicle... it's the Joe's HQ. Yeah I know... I also got ahold of that one.

I worked at a plastics factory for awhile when i lived in idaho. And molds can get lost quite easily actually. You have to consider how many molds there are. Then the fact of shipping them to other places, or they got dropped and break (or some idiot doesn't completely finish putting them mold into the machine correctly and it falls out of the mold in the process of trying to do your job that was a fun day) not to mention the molds hasbro is using really aren't as big as people think. the smallest mold I used was for making 4 knife handles at the same time and it was about 12 inches tall by 8 inches wide really not that big but it was signficantly heavy.

If you like the vehicle alot just get it anyway if you can win it cheap enough.

I was buying vintage ARAH stuff for a while to go with my 25ths. Then came the toy fair pictures from last year and I went into purchasing hiatus. The new vehicles rock so far and I'm picking up everything they make (aside from the Blue Target HISS).
I have went out of my way to put together a nice Vintage Skystriker, Night Raven, and Crusader. I just don't see them being redone any time soon.
I'm also going to be doing a completely custom Skystriker ala 25th style with a Funskool Skystriker that will be here soon. I liked the gray color of the Funskool jet. I plan to make all new seats that will fit the new figs and do some minor paint/decal tweaks to reflect what I think Hasbro would have done if the molds were still available.
I am holding off on getting a Tomahawk. I just have a feeling they will do one eventually. I was going to do the same on the Moray, but got a really nice deal for a complete one the other day.
