As mentioned in this thread:

https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/1020/778663.page#10531393

The Rhino (except Chaos version) and Razorback are gone from the GW web store in the UK.

A temporary glitch, or the beginning of the end for old-style marines?

How many times have we gone through GW pulling something from the store to update its packaging or bases or included rules, and had to endure the forum folks going full chicken little over it?

I'd wager they are just consolidating the box into a dual kit (which the Razor back technically already was, but they probably want to advertised that on the box)

Or, third option, they're removing what is effectively a 'duplicate' kit.

The fact that they're still selling the Rhino has always puzzled me.

This isn't like other times though. If it were any other faction and any other time you may have a point. Whether you fall on the side of "GW will never remove classic marines entirely" or "Classic Marines are an endangered species," or somewhere in between, it should be cause for speculation given that a new, Primaris focused Codex is on our doorstep. If it were, say, 4 months ago, with no Codex leaks, I'd somewhat agree with you. But the timing, RIGHT BEFORE a new codex is released, should be cause for valid discussion on the fate of the Rhino. Also given that the new codex is Primaris centric, this could then put the discussion back on the table. After all, if the regular transport is extinct, maybe regular marines are too. But its valid speculation because of the timing, so close to a new release.

Now, it may be that its going to be repackaged, but it COULD equally be gone due to new release. Until it comes back or doesn't we can just discuss.

Seriously, what are the odds that WH Community would be allowed to post content mentioning the Rhino just before they discontinue it?

WH Community won't be allowed to talk about units on the chopping block, so anything they've mentioned is almost certainly not squatted.

Given how neurotic a great many people are about perceived squatiing, do you really think GW would pass up an opportunity to drum up sales with an LCTB run on muppet-marines and muppet-marine accessories, and instead just flat out stop selling items (that are almost certainly sitting in a warehouse somewhere)?

Its an SKU change and a rebox.

At least until the White Scar preview drops and we can start frothing at the mouth over that instead.

Where the heck is that anyway, it's like four in the afternoon in the UK.

On the other hand. With a new codex coming out, that means the included datasheets in the current box will be out of date, and needing to be replaced. So taking down the page for reboxing and repackaging with the updated rules makes way more sense than a straight discontinue right before a codex drop.

Old marines ARE going to be squatted, but for sure Rhinos are not disappearing from tomorrow. At least, I hope.
Anyone that thinks that old marines are not going to be squatted eventually is, at this point, delusional.

Primaris will be squatted eventually too so unless it's within GW's 10 year plan I don't care. Primaris are still not a functional stand alone army. Gw have just given us rules for more old marine units in the new codex that where cut from the mk1 codex.

But go ahead and keep trying to stir up a hate thread.

I doubt they will completely squat them in the next decade. even then I am thinkign index equivilant or WD ruleset. I do expect units over the years to be consolidated. Liek assault and tactical terminators consolidated to just terminators. and the catafracti and tarteros armors becomign just other options to represent terminators with no functional difference. I expect drednaughts will jsut be 1 entry for drednaught, centurians consolidated etc.

basically a mini dex or classic marines and I would nto be surprised if every edition they get put in just so people have a crossover for HH and to avoid complaints from users... now will the be effective is more the question.

It may be a rebox but with a £7.50 price increase. Was looking at a Rhino on the official site last week and it was only £20, with the Chaos version a couple of quid more. The Razorback was £27.50. Now, both are the same price. The Chaos Rhino is still lower in price at £25.
