We had our heyday to say the least with that tremendous release of "What-if" kits we saw. I was ecstatic with the various kits produced. Sadly, I missed one kit I wanted sooooooooooo badly: the outstretched neck Bronto kit. There were just a couple kits I passed on. I'm forcing myself not to regret those.
I can't wait to start my layout.
I hope the Ichthy and Neanderthal Woman are still in the works somehow...........
Still this is very sad news, but I will focus on the positive aspect: I have so many beautiful add-on kits, that I will be occupied with my Prehistoric Scenes 'scene' for a long time!!!!
We so still have JurassicArts supplying so great bases too!!
Cheers to all who share my love of these kits, Jim

Thanks Tay! Prehistorix will be releasing new kits in the new year. Its a shame we are losing Alchemy. They have been an inspiration to garage kit collectors and manufacturers. It was seeing their what if and replacement heads that got me back in to PS after along time out of it.
Prehistorix have tried to do what alchemy did and keep a full catalogue of nearly everything we have done still available (We have 30 + products available). Mark and I are determined to provide as much customer service and choice as we can and be as consistent as possible. The new kits will be a Baryonyx in early 2016, then a Pteranodon Hatchery which incorporates the original base and a set of new nameplate holders. We are also going to re-new some of the moulds such as the leaping tiger, baby mammoth etc. The Baryonyx and nameplate holders are to be shipped to headquarters after the Christmas post dies down. The Boneyard- hell creek should be on the site in completed form soon as Mark has cast and shipped out the pre-orders. So if you are one of those waiting its on its way.
Mike posted this at the Clubhouse yesterday "Alchemy Works kits will still be available. I have decided to send my proprietary stuff that are good sellers to Randy Guthrie and Todd Powell. These guys are very dependable and high quality artists. Not everything will still be available so check the website."
Also, some of the kits have changed hands. Prehistorix now produces the Plateosaurus And Jurassic Arts will be producing the Wooly Rhino and Glyptodon.

That's so sad that he is done. I wonder how he got a hold of Randy? I've tried to get a hold of him for a long time with no response. He has all my sculpts, castings and molds (if they still exist and are intact.) I don't see where they have the molds for sale?
