The reprint of AA50 is confirmed. The date is not however.

I see the Revised copy is now hard to find and getting expensive also.
I love playing the Anniversary Edition and would hate to sell the extra in case something bad happens (like what the cat did to the Original Axis and Allies 2nd Ed. game). But if the price is going to drop 75% in 2 months the smart thing would be to sell. Which means if anyone reads this they might want to wait for the 2nd printing.
Oh, well. What are we playing at GenCon this year/
I must admit I did already agree to buy a collectors edition of War of the Ring which is also an awesome game. But that's a different company who makes it.
However, according to our given sources, it was said that when the reprint does come out that it probably would be a "straight" reprint, not an improvement like I requested to AH personally by phone and several e-mails (updated rules with FAQs, foldable board and refreshed sculpts).
Since AH has cut little corners in AA42 and the AA40 games, I have little reason to doubt that they won't do the same with the AA50 reprint. In other words, we may not get a "straight" reprint but a "cut corners" type version- no money, smaller battle board, cheaper quality cardboard etc than the first print. That would make the first print of this game even more valuable since the quality was superb.
I hope this is not the case, but it does seem like the trend here (sorry, to be a debbie downer. )
