I have been out of the loop for a while but have come back to see some interesting stuff happen. From what I can gather Horizon Hobbies purchased Athearn and Walthers purchases LifeLike. What is the real result of this? Can I get Athearn stuff through Walthers? Can I still get Atlas and Kato through Walthers? Has there been a major change in quality and price of Athearn and LifeLike products after the buyout? How does this affect things at my local hobby shop? Thanks for the help.
