I have tried to spread the petition around a few facebook sites where I am involved and hopefully we will get some more interest.
Fellow members of the Tau Empire, a challenge lies before us and we humbly request your assistance.
It has been too long since the skies where graced by the roar of our mighty Orca shuttle carrying our warriors in defence of The Greater Good.
Too long have evil merchants tried to extort a high price for ancient and damaged Orca in the E'bay system.
The time is right to try to correct this wrong. Hasten, all loyal Caste members, to the following spacial coordinates and let the voice of the Fire Caste be heard.

If the 40 or so petitioners wanted the Orca, they would have bought it within the last couple of years it was available. Ebay will probably have them if you really want them.
Peoples opinions and personal circumstances change. I would not have contemplated buying one when they where available but now, with having more interest in the fluff and a little more disposable income it would have become a welcome centrepiece to my collection. It was officially discontinued in 2014
A little internet searching shows one which went for $375 in 2015 on eBay and a Chinese firm selling knock off copies for $450
Also bear in mind that the Manta is still available and I do not believe they have sold a massive amount of these.
I still hope and believe that at some point a new mold will be produced along the lines of the Barracuda and Tiger shark and keeping FW in the loop that there is still interest cannot hurt.
