I think you should change the title of this thread.... NOTHING has been released & none of these kits will be released this year. Most are many.many months away from actually hitting store shelves. If you go to the Kit Review section of this forum you will see there are at least 3 threads running, concerning these new releases by Revell. All the information & details on the kits is in those threads...
So your thread is a little behind the 8 ball...

Danny, I posted this because it's the video that Revell itself released on YOUTUBE where I first saw it and thought others would be interested in putting some of these kits on their radars. I'm am glad there are other threads with more details to augment the visuals of the Revell You Tube video.

We seemed to do just fine here last year with the "New Revell kits for 2012" topic, then starting a new, individual topic for each specific kit as it came closer to being released, but if anyone wants to start a topic on a specific kit months before it's released, please do. The Rat Roaster Kit Review topic is a good example of why threads started months before a kit is released holds value for many people.

What is that..power point? LOL! I figured the police expedition would just be a poor lightbar...and they stole the Taurus/Explorer promo vehicle markings....So happy to see the Tomb Raider jeep in plastic. Too bad it's a curbside. But there's tons of versions I have planned for it:)

I know that someone with a better memory than me will correct me, but the only 1/25 scale '57 Chevy drop top I can remember came from AMT, & it was a downsize of their 1/16 kit, but yet Revell has this kit listed for release next year, & it doesn't say that it is new tooling. Something wrong with their listing, or did they release this in the '60's, (I was there but most of it was spent in a party atmosphere,& I don't really remember it all) & I forgot about it?

I'm assuming it will be based on the existing '55-'57 "tri-five" tooling, rather than a completely new "from scratch" design, so if my assumption is correct, it would be more accurate to call it a modified reissue.

So happy to see the Tomb Raider jeep in plastic.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see it stated anywhere this kit is going to be all-plastic...ditto for the '77 T/A. I think we're going to get unassembled kits with die-cast bodies for these two, just like before.

Saw that...no biggie, the AMT '49 Merc is easy enough to source a flat hood from.


Hey Rob, the Flattie from the 50' Ford p/u might be an option also.

what scale is that army wrecker truck?

1/35 scale, VERY cool kit with working steering, working rear suspension, working outriggers and functioning wrecker boom. It has been issued several times as a military wrecker and once as a funky civilian wrecker in white with chrome parts.

I'll still get the Jeeps again, for parts alone. But what would lead you to believe Revell would revert back to the diecast bodies, when they've already turned most of them versions into plastic kits? With the "exclusive details" tags on the vid, I would have thought they would point that out as one.

Hope they include the 38 nose in the panel like the truck reissue!

I know they converted the '68 Mustang and '70 Challenger T/A/R/T kits from diecast into all plastic, and, well, I'd rather they didn't do that ever again. I guess until I see they've specifically announced the Jeep Rubicon and '77 T/A have been converted to "all plastic", I will assume they'll be reissued as they were previously.

I think it's kind of odd Revell would re-issue the 1/24 Monogram '78 Trans Am kit again, only to release a semi-new kit of essentially the same car in 1/25 scale, but maybe this is the 1/24 scale kit's last hurrah? Revell did have the 1/25 (former diecast) '70 Challenger in its lineup right alongside the 1/24 Monogram '70 Challenger T/A, though, so who knows.

Yes, that's the one, and it was originally a die-cast bodied car (Vanishing Point and American Dreams packaging). There should be a review of it in this section.
