Hmm no idea.

Id say if they were of decent quality then a lot of work would go into them. Maybe theyre for one off's? Sponsored or something.

as i understand it the flag versions are Olympic related, that said Thomson is a US company so i don't mind seeing the US flag on the product but the Union Flag i think shouldn't be on there. i can't imagine Hope would put the US flag on their components.

the other thing with this is that Thomson make fantastic no nonsense no gimmick products and personally i think this is gimmicky.

Sure is but thats what sells!

They know there is a big market for their products here so would be silly not to do a UK flag one.

These pics have been knocking around for over a year now. I don't think that anything ever went into production?
