I think we have, by this point, all seen the new Valkyrie model done by GW in plastic, but, unlike the baneblade, they do not seem to have changed much of it's design
First, the FW model:
Second, the GW one:
It seems to me to be a pretty complete copy.
I sorta think that's a shame, i would've liked a different looking model for variation.

My only problem is that is a freacking big model. Transport safely 3x around for a battle in another house/club/GW store is quite a chore, is in it?

Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
From a production standpoint, it's make sense for them to reuse the molds for this mass release item.
From a consumer standpoint, it could be as you say, a bummer, or as others have said, a good thing because of price.
I agree with you in the sense that they should have done some minor tweaks to he kit for two reasons: 1) It would differentiate between the two and 2) If I was one of the dudes who bought a FW Valk, I'd be PISSED that it is now available for so much cheaper.
It's kind of like buying a Mercedes only to find Mercedes has shared the plans with Hyundai and someone else gets to have a Mercedes for half of what you paid.
So, in short, I would have liked a few tweaks for the fact that it's be fair to make it different and because I'd like to see some new things as well.
I'm glad it didn't change very much, i like the model it is a little big though.

The only complaint I ever have is when a company makes there own products unusable through rules changes. Thankfully GW maintaining a good "counts as" for their products.
