Guys I'm not well informed on past kits since I recently began to buy them. So, are there any other Foose kits besides the ones coming out???

A lot of nice stuff there- what's the going rate for a kidney these days?

Negative. Nor are those two "Foose kits" per se, as they both have existed for at least 3 re-issues each. Neither are new, but rather re-warmed offerings with what you have to hope are an attempt at the 1:1 wheels, decals and perhaps some lowered suspension pieces. Changes beyond that...I wouldn't hold your breath.

Not sure why Revell needed to hitch it's wagon to OverHaulin' which doesn't come back on the air until the 4Q of 2012 on Velocity (formerly Discovery HD), as I can't even find Velocity on the spectrum of "High Numbered Channels No One Watches" on my DirecTV. The show petered out on TLC after 5 seasons, I'm not sure anyone was clamoring for it's return. I understand Revell's hands were tied a bit if they wanted to milk this connection while spending the least amount of money, as they had to match something Foose did in those 5 years with something in the kit "archives", but the '68 Firebird is STILL in the CURRENT Revell Catalog, it was one of the Gearz contest kits. My LHS still has 2-3 '67 Coronets, from at least 2 of the last reissues.

If they could tool up an all new kit of the '32 Ford for Stacey David, then why couldn't we get something actually new for Foose?

I guess they decided to use the Foose brand rather than their own 'California Wheels' or 'Motor City Muscle' branding...I don't expect them to be much different than California Wheels versions of other kits..decals, big wheels and tires.

As far as the Velocity channel, it used to be called HD Theater..it has Mecum auction coverage, and a couple pretty good shows--Chasing Classic Cars w/ Wayne Carini and a British old car find/fixup/sell show, Wheeler Dealers, that I like...

Speaking of big wheels, I wonder what happened to the 3 new wheels Pegasus announced at iHobby last year? Haven't seen anything about them.

The Mini might be fun. Perhaps the GNX; I never got one of those first-time around.

Between those, the Olds, '57 Ford and Corvette, Revell will have some nice stuff coming out over the next few months.

Rob, I take it you get the Velocity channel?, is it a part of the HD package?, I ask because I have looked for it, even put in the channel number, even looked at all channels Directv offers and my guide does not show it

I liked Overhaulin', especially before they changed the format and stopped "stealing" the people's cars. That was what made the show.

looking forward to at least looking in the box of the foose kits. Wont buy one unless it includes new suspensions and or engine parts. Who knows, they could be doing something along the lines of the rat roaster with an existing body but new everything else. Heres hoping.

No new pick up trucks for a couple of reasons.

Licensing from the manufacturers, coupled with the newer ones haven't sold well, means Revell and Round 2 aren't going to put their money into it, if they aren't going to get a decent return on it. Sad but true. Why do you think the Revell tires in all their kits have no manufacturing logos and names on them? Licensing costs too much. No new NASCAR kits....licensing.

All comes down to greed on the part of the car and tire manufactures. Instead of looking at it as an opportunity for free advertising, they look at it as a way to make a quick buck

I'm really excited about the new releases that I went to my LHS and asked them to get a good number of those kits. :) specially the Foose and Shelby Cobra. Tic-tac-tic-tac time runs slow when it comes to new releases...

Not current. Looks to be a reissue of the 90's kit.


Thanks for pic,

Hi all
Don't know who else has seen this, but Revell is releasing a couple of Foose design cars Fall 2012:
a 68 Firebird and a 67 Coronet. Both look pretty good to me. Looking forward to them.

I can`t wait to see that Firebird on the shelves!! Hopefully we will see more Foose inspired stuff.

there are several I know I will pick up, but the Challenger one is a must have, the one I built in the 7th grade didn't survive the attempt to power it with 4 of Revell's sp600 slot motors. Maybe this time I will leave it box stock, jus' for the nostalgia of it all.
