Re: Sad Sylvanian news today


Maybe they'll just repackage them and keep making them? Specially since they're avaliable now. On facebook, someone asked if there was another house coming this year, and they said:

We have just launched the new MAPLE MANOR WITH CARPORT (ref B95). And also have returning stocks of HOUSE ON THE HILL (ref B1) and COURTYARD RESTAURANT (ref B61). There are no further new houses this year. All new releases are now in stock at [sign in to see URL] - nothing else new due until 2014 onwards now!



So not sure if thats everything "nothing else new" or just the house area.

[sign in to see URL] they'll be getting rid of all the flair products? Oh no, what if Epoch turn SF into only Freya Chocolate????
They'll rename the whole thing Freya Families or something emoticon

I'd make a guess that there will be no new products. That's only a guess though, but I can't see why Flair would invest in creating new items/sets if they are on their way out.

I think it will probably be a little like when Flair took over from Tomy. Initially you could get both available but slowly the packaging begun to change over to identify products as Flair. This is why you can find the Bakery and Beagle Dogs in both Tomy and Flair packaging.

I don't see why Epoch would walk into every toy shop/online store and remove all stock. It would be impossible but I guess every item made/packaged from Jan 1st 2014 onwards will be released in Epoch packaging. It may simply be that Flair packaging has a label placed over the Flair logo (this already happens in Japan). I guess it's a watch this space.

I am hoping that now Epoch are taking over there will be less re-releases of families but I have to admit I haven't been overly inspired by their recent JP releases, I find some of them a bit cartoonish.

I am looking forward to seeing the changes and introduction though. I'm focusing on filling gaps in the vintage sections of my collection. On some levels even the newer Flair stuff hasn't appealed to me much. I do hope the Britishness of UK Sylvanians isn't lost though - like the policeman, maypole sets etc.

Thanks koolkaci86. It would be impossible to wipe out hundreds of products.
The only thing I want rereleased is the Irish Post Office.
Ah the joys of being an adult collector!

Lots of offers on at the moment... I just hope they won't bring back like all the nice old rare stuff since I just got some Misty Forests and I don't want to see a bunch of stuff that I paid 40 euro for in the local toy shop for 15 euro!!!The packaging is adorable though!!! I love the light blue (I'm really girly, my bedroom is painted light pink with white spots)

Oh gosh, I sure hope not! I just recently joined the club and only have gotten my 2nd magazine! I'd be a little upset if the club ended... emoticon
