    Hi Guys:

    There has been some chatter recently about the possibility that a TAF remake will be the next release from CGC. Even though I have owned (and sold) 3 TAFs in the past, I would buy a remake in a heartbeat.

    Even though the original sold over 20K units, here's why I think a remake would be a great success.

    I would imagine that the majority of TAFs out there are well worn but they still fetch very good money so, clearly, it is a very desirable pin to own.

    If there were a remake, even those who currently have a nice TAF would want a remake (that brand new feeling, with all the bells and whistles) and would then sell their old TAF (at much reduced prices, due to the remake) to others who would like to own a TAF but can't afford the remake prices.

    I somewhat liken this to new cars. There are enough people who change their cars every few years for the latest model of the car they already have, with the new car smell and all the latest bells & whistles. Their old car is then recycled to the ones who can't afford a new car. No difference, really.

    Just my opinion, so no flames, please.

    Quoted from bigd1979:

    There is much more cost to make taf over afm and mb not to mention the licensing.

    Apart from the licensing cost, why would a TAF cost so much more to make than AFMr, MBr, etc.?
