to make room for the new ones that will be coming in the next catalog.
But once they are gone, they are GONE. And let me save you the time and money of shopping on eBay. You will NOT get a better price. You will pay MORE because once an item is retired, the value INCREASES (it's the ol' supply and demand thing).
So take a look and shop in my online store and get the ones you have to have before they are gone FOREVER!
