Round 2, LLC:
SOUTH BEND, Indiana - 11/30/2011 - Round 2, LLC, announced today that they have acquired all rights to industry leading model kit brands
AMT, MPC and Polar Lights from TOMY International, Inc. (formerly RC2 Corporation).
Round 2 acquired the brands from TOMY International after manufacturing branded model kits under a licensing agreement since 2008.
"We've had a great relationship with TOMY International for a long time and it has been a pleasure working with them as a licensee and now
as a buyer," said Thomas Lowe, President of Round 2 LLC.
"We feel extremely fortunate to be acquiring these brands," continued Lowe. "These are some of the industry's most iconic brands and our
acquisition represents a significant strategic fit with our initiatives and where we believe the industry is headed, in the near and long term. This
deal is a win for Round 2, TOMY and most importantly, the modelers."
"We are pleased to have been working with Round 2 as a licensee the last 3 years, and now as the buyer," said Pete Henseler, president of
TOMY International. "We wish them continued success in the model kit business and expect their expertise and passion for the hobby model kit
business to drive these brands in the years ahead."
The history of the model kit brands goes back as far as 1948 when AMT, which stands for Aluminum Model Toys, was founded as a promotional
toy company. Model Products Corporation, MPC, was started in 1963 and focused on bringing even more automotive subject matter to market
in kit form. Founded in 1996, Polar Lights has focused on figural, horror and pop culture genres.
The acquisition gives Round 2 tooling and materials that date back into the 1950s. The tooling and artwork also represent an opportunity to
bring back classic model kits in original-styled packaging, increasing the desirability and nostalgia. "I grew up building models. Not in my
wildest dreams would I have ever imagined I'd someday own the brands I was building as a kid," said Lowe.

From Model Roundup: We view the previous Press Release with enthusiasm. This announcement does not really represent a big change as
Round2 was already controlling the brands mentioned through licensing agreements. However, this does represent a big change in that
Round2 now takes ownership of the tooling and licensing rights which, in our opinion, gives them the flexibility and security to make long
range plans and investments. Tom Lowe is "one of us", a guy who grew up in the '60's and loves these kits and this hobby as we do. The team
around him is the same. Once again, this is exciting news for all of us who love this hobby.
ROUND 2, LLC, ACQUIRES LINDBERG & HAWK MODEL KIT BRANDS
Round 2 to Produce Popular Land, Air, Sea & Space Models – Adding to AMT, MPC & Polar Lights
For Immediate Release
SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 03/18/2013 – Round 2, LLC, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Lindberg and Hawk Models brands and
assets from J. Lloyd International. With the transaction, Round 2 adds these two well-recognized and historic plastic model kit names to their
existing trio of AMT, MPC and Polar Lights mode kit lines, licensed from Learning Curve Brands, Inc. in 2008 and purchased outright in 2012.
Consumer trust and excitement has been building over Round 2’s efforts with the initial three brands since 2008. Now, with the assets of five
major model companies in its stable, Round 2 solidifies its position as a top producer and fierce competitor in the plastic kit sector of the hobby
industry. Thomas Lowe, President and CEO of Round 2 states, “The addition of Lindberg and Hawk results in a combined product catalog for
Round 2 that is so diverse, it will include virtually every type of model kit genre imaginable and in a wide range of scales. Whether you’re
looking for cars, trucks, aircraft, ships, sci-fi, space exploration, anatomy and figures or even crazy monsters, we now have it all! We’ve made
plans to hit the ground running with these brands and are ready to go. As we progress into the future, we will be working with the vintage Hawk
and Lindberg tooling to resurrect more exciting kits that haven’t seen the light of day in decades, just like we have with AMT and MPC. We’ll
also be happy to put the 1934 Ford Pickup tooling back under the original AMT brand, from where it originated.”
Lowe continues, “Like our customers, we love model building. Lindberg and Hawk models are sure to excite modelers of all ages. From the
connection with history to a hunger for an understanding of how various machines, both human and mechanical function, the kits created by
the original brands have always offered a wide variety of subject matter for model makers, and we plan on continuing that long standing
