But that's just it - it's more than just in the novels now. It's a physical real
model. The fact that Paramount and Round 2 took a chance at releasing something that has never appeared on-screen for the first time is quite significant and can't be discounted. Nobody does anything in the corporate world without thinking they might make some profit off of it. How many people really read the books? How much of the casual fandom even knows that the concept of a refit ever existed and that there would be enough of an established interest in investing in something like this?
There's something wholly different about this one.
