Apparently a new run as BLW announced them on 1/29/10.  These do not appear to have the new BLMA trucks on them.

The 2nd run was announced last year - they're here!

(apparently the 2nd run is already sold out at BLMA!)

No, the MSRP is too low for that.

The Top Gons are a yawner for me, but they are quite nice. Can't wait for the PS4000's.

According to the BLMA website info for the 2nd run of TopGons with and without the yellow stripes both have "correct 100-ton trucks".  Is this the new trucks you mean?

BLW is sold out of the 12 car sets already.  MBKlein still has a good stock but dropping.

BLMA has a new 100T (and 70T) ASF Ride Control truck out sans coupler... the TopGons use their as designed SDK supplied 100T talgo trucks with a shorter Accumate shank.

Okay, so nope, they aren't.  Thanks Robb!
