Here's the deal... this kit isn't aimed at US.  Tom Lowe has always been involved in the TV and Movie memorabilia market. There are huge shows for this hobby across the country all the time. Our hobby is tiny next to this market.  People attending these shows will buy this kit. Most will be happy with the box art and maybe never even open the box.  None of them will notice the differences between the actual movie car and the kit. And if this makes Round 2 money so that they can invest in stuff we'd like to see reissued, so be it!

I've touched on it before, and I know it first hand from my day job, that WE* aren't the demographic that buys the bulk of model kits.

 

*message board posters, model club members, model show attendees, etc...

Looks like Round2 has even created a new "Silver Screen Machines" label for all of these movie-themed kits.

 

Now if we can only get them to do a "Better Off Dead" '67 SS Camaro in this series...

YES !!

You should see some of the new Hot Wheels HollyWood cars.  The Milner Coupe is a modern looking 3 Window with a blower and no fenders at all, the Beverly Hills Cop Nova is a '68 Nova, the Rockford Files Firebird is a T-Top Trans Am with what appears to be the scale equivalent of 18"-20" front and 20"-22" rear Torque Thrusts, and for Ferris Bueller's Day off, they modeled his sister's Fiero :rolleyes:

on the other hand the 'old' Miami Vice black Daytona...was based on the correct car from the series
a kit car with Corvette parts..instead of the real Ferrari
also i don't think Foley's Nova was anywhere near an SS model..even if they did base it on the basemodel from the movie..they still had to create all the dents and the rust that was on it...

still a great movie though..love the scene in the Beverly hills police office with Foley ,Bogomill and Taggert...
Foley;..'is this the man who wrecked the buffet?'...
Taggert;..not so loud Axel..
'what can he hear me through that wall?...
(everybody)..YES!! He can!!
