Round 2

Round 2 is a company founded in 2005 in Indiana, USA. It owns the brands, and some of the original tooling, for major plastic kit and die-cast model brands including AMT, MPC and Johnny Lightning. Among the licenses were the original MPC/Ertl Space: 1999 kits, with the MPC Eagle first to be reissued in 2013. At the start of 2014 they reissued the MPC Alien kit, followed by Alpha Moonbase.

The success of the reissues led to an updated Eagle Deluxe Edition in 2015. In 2015, Round 2, under the MPC branding, created new tooling for a very accurate 22 inch Eagle. This popular kit had a number of accessory packs, and eventually variation kits, the main versions being Eagle With Cargo Pod (2017), Eagle 2 Laboratory Pod (2020).

The kit was also released as a pre-built model in three configurations Eagle transporter (2018), Rescue Eagle (2018), and Eagle 2 (2020).

A third scale Eagle, a 14 inch Eagle was introduced in 2019, with similar accuracy to the 22 inch.

Other related kits included an in-scale Nuclear Waste Area 2 with astronauts and moonbuggies, Commlock and stun gun kit (2021), and Hawk (a new tooling, accurate the studio filming model, not the 1977 MPC original)..
