    Is it still possible to order items through the Red Lancers website? I know that the owner (Chuck) passed away. I have emailed them through the email address on the site but have had no response. I don't want to order something and then later find out that it has ceased trading and I won't receive my item.

    I would not order at this time. There has been several personal contact attempts made to the family with no response. To the best of anyone's knowledge all the inventory is still there. Chuck was paying a year at a time for the website so that could be the reason its still up.

    Are there any updates in the status of the Red Lancer? The site is still up, but has not been updated. The email system is working (in that my emails are not bouncing back), but there has been no response. I had pending orders going back to last winter.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Last month on my way to JerseyFest, I stopped by just to have a look. (and unload some money as well, like I did in'15) Here is what I found. The store is still there, but it is a mere shell of what it was, and not to the good. It looks like it's being used as a storage garage. Where Chuck had the display cases of those wonderfully painted figures, there was only one left and it looked half empty. There was an old car seat sitting towards the front and from what I could see of the back where Chuck had his computer, it looked like someone stacked some old chairs and other items. There is still stock on the shelves but it is sparse. It appeared that it hasn't been opened for some time. Before I went, I called twice and emailed several times, also with no response. I got there during the regular listed opening times but no one was there. Oddly, there was a flyer in the window advertising for a harvest festival of some kind coming up in October if I recall. I apologize to any of Chuck's family if what I observed was just them taking some time off to reorganize and restart it, but that is what I found. I would follow Bobs advice and not order anything either. I was going to take a picture of the store but it broke my heart seeing it this way.

    Thanks, Tom. I was hoping that someone might take over the business, but I guess time has marched on...

    Thanks again.
