Does anyone know if it's possible for Games Workshop to sell me a MK1 Rhino if I call and request it?
Or does that service apply only to miniatures?
You mean that you would like to buy one of the old, smaller rhinos? I don't think that they can even run those off, but I've also never known that you could call in and request discontinued minis.
If you can get them, I love those little rhinos. My entire army is based around the Mk1 chassis, except for my Vindicator, which had to be mounted on the newer chassis for the sake of the conversion. Nothing's better than squeezing an APC down a corridor too narrow for any other vehicle in the game!
If they have the mold for it, they will sell it to you, however the only problem is they dont have any molds pre-1995.
And the reason I asked is because no one ever mentioned if they do the same service for vehicles, I just prefer the razor edge of the Mk1.
E-bay is a good idea, but I prefer a reliable source for my vehicles.
If I was searching for one-off items or equipment, I would be more inclined to use E-bay, but if there is no other option, I would give it a shot.
there's always plenty of Mk 1 Rhinos on eBay, however I wouldn't hold out any hope of geeDub selling them still. They may have a few display boxes knocking around for posterities sake, but to my knowledge haven't manufactured it new from more than a decade..

You might get very lucky, the GW i used to frequent had a lot of old stuff in the backroom, otherwise ebay is a good idea, also someone at your local gaming club / GW might have 1 in their personal collection. It's not a well loved model so loads of people would be willing to sell theirs (might cut out the bidding and postage of an ebay rhino).
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Hm. *Points at username1's post* I still have one or two of those lying around from the days I actually played 40K. Assembled and mostly painted. Probably not what your looking for, but if you by any chance are living in Holland I could sell them to you. Otherwise shipping costs wouldn't be worth it I think.
