So, let's hear what people think of them when they actually get a chance to run them.

So a brand new models show up on eBay before getting to online retailers or hobby stores?  My, how the times have changed.
I would expect @spookshow doing a review soon.

I clicked on one of the listings and the estimated delivery date for my zip code in Florida Aug 7 -Aug 20th. So it seems as this seller my have listed them  anticipating they will arrive in the next few weeks. Since the seller says they're in SC, I think the actual shipping time would be 2-4 days, plus a day or two to process.

Wow that was quick!

I'm actually excited to get my hands on these, hopefully will make kit bashing some Soo Mikes easier then the Kato heavies... Plus the heavy coming in Milwaukee is a bonus 😎

I just received an e-mail that said HogTrainz will start shipping some Mikados tomorrow (Thursday 25 July).  This is limited because the most of their order from BLI arrives next week.

Update - Thursday.  Paul Postel (Hogtrainz) notified me that my GN Heavy Mikado is on the way.

Hogtrainz Paul mailed mine last week, so I should have it today.
