I went to post my earlier update today in the usual places (reddit and a facebook group) and found that someone had posted some pictures of a Fascinations / Metal Earth retailer catalog, with some unannounced models appearing in it (along with some announced, some already released, and some long released). And there are some models to get excited about, for sure. Of course, this catalog comes with some caveats. First of all, it’s targeted at retailers. Meaning these are probably not the final designs, it’s more of a “heads up, here’s what’s coming, you can plan to order this in the future.” I’ve seen this before with previous catalogs that made it out into public. Also, these catalogs are not a representation of everything coming in 2022 (for one thing, they release two catalogs every year, and even then, some models don’t appear in the catalog until after they’ve been released – as I’ve learned from experience).
Alright, enough rambling, let’s get to the models to look forward to! Note: some of these models have already been mentioned in Metal Earth newsletters, but these may be new / larger / fuller pictures, so I included them anyways.
In addition to the above, there was a pretty cool cover for the catalog, and a page mentioning some models that were entering into the “retiring” process:
I’m not going to link directly to the catalog, as Fascinations doesn’t usually make that public anymore, but I learned about all this from this reddit post.
