Default Has the Vagabond been discontinued?

Most places are out of the Vagabond and the Sizzix site says no longer available
Sizzix Vagabond Machine Only - inspired by Tim Holtz

Is there a new model or did they discontinue it ?

I think TH introduced a new model at CHA that is supposed to work better with various sandwiches. Check his blog or YouTube.

They have launched the Vagabond Two- an updated version, which in the TH CHA video I watched, he said it is now not possible to feed too thick a sandwich through the machine. That was the biggest issue with the first one, apparently.

I am seriously considering the Vagabond 2 because of the changes that have been made. I copied this from Stampers Anonymous:

"Sizzix Vagabond 2: NEW & IMPROVED!
New Features:
- All-metal motor gears
- Overload protection to prevent motor jams
- Stronger motor with higher torque
- Includes thin die adapter for use with thinlits & framelits dies" (End of Quote)

It is my understanding that the original version contained some plastic parts which contributed to the problems with that machine. I am really excited that Sizzix has addressed these issues.

My Vagabond is still going strong several years later. However if it dies, I will not hesitate to get a Vagabond 2. It sounds great!
