A warm welcome to the latest Bricktanks update!

I had hoped to be confirming that our latest COBI order is on its way and various pre-orders would be arriving in stock early next week. Unfortunately, COBI informed us today that their production schedule is delayed so the following preorders will I'm afraid be delayed by upto two weeks:

SD. KFZ. 121 Panzer II Ausf. F - Lego compatible COBI 2527 - 420 brick light tank

Vought F4U Corsair - Lego compatible COBI 5714 - 270 brick fighter aircraft

Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero M - Lego compatible COBI 5712 - 280 brick fighter aircraft

Red Army Winter Troops (3 figures) - Lego compatible COBI 2032 - 26 brick figurines

122mm Howitzer M1938 (M-30) - Lego compatible COBI 2395 - 72 brick artillery weapon

Concorde - Lego compatible COBI 1917 - passenger aircraft

We're really sorry for any dissappointment and please email us if you would like to cancel your pre-order.

On the plus side, we have been updating our website with all the latest upcoming sets COBI has planned, so check out the latest early-bird PRE-ORDERS page for details. More sets will be listed there soon including COBI's new Vietnam collection.

Please note, the 'SOLD OUT' sets aren't actually sold out, they're just not available for pre-order yet. We thought you'd like to know what's in the pipeline.

Postage changes:

Last December, we switched from Royal Mail to a next day (excluding Saturdays) tracked delivery service with DPD, which was free on ALL orders in the UK. However, we've decided to implement a minumum spend of £10 per order for this service to avoid losing so much money on the smaller sets. We are still waiting to hear back from Royal Mail about whether they can offer us a better deal, in the meantime we will continue to use them on an adhoc basis.


Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding with the current delay on pre-orders, if that affects you we'll keep you posted.

If you have any questions please do not hestitate to contact us at or call Zoe on 07875587998.

Warmest wishes

Neil and Zoë
