A bird in the had is worth two in the bush. If they ever actually go back in to production with the new one. I have seen in my industry where a manufacture will advertise a product and see how many bites they get. If they get enough they do it, if not scrap it. So what you have there is solid. Whether they build it or not you now have one in your hand. Great buy and a great price.
