Unfortunately, a combination of tooling delays and lack of projected hobby sales for NHL ASV has caused Upper Deck to delay several previously planned players that were going to roll out this season. They had to rearrange the NHL line for possible release in the Fall of 2008 and 2009 season. Look for a full NHL line to be a major part of the announcement in the next paragraph . . .
Finally, Upper Deck has released that they are working on a new ASV line that is in a smaller and more retail friendly size. This is different than the Pro Shots figures that were recently announced. No other information about the mini ASV line has been released.
