Isn't that the Camaro he designed and built with YearOne? Pretty expensive kit none the less

Oh wow. Here is the pic that I have from the Revell announcement video they posted a week or two ago:

1-12FooseCamaro_zps2e11fd9c.jpg

 

I kinda hope we get the one you posted Earl, just because it looks like that one would have the RS grille. It would really be nice to have that. But I do like the wheels better on the black one I think.

And I really, really, really hope we get all the stock parts and BLACK z/28 stripes!!!!!!! 

 

As far as the cost for the kit, I was thinking $69 was the suggested retail back when the stock version of this kit was released in 2004/2005ish?? Seems about right to me for a 1/12 scale kit. I would think we would see these pop up on eBay eventually in the $40s/$50s.

You could always buy a 1/12 scale Big Block from TDR Innovations:

The version in the orange sketch I'd probably pick up. The black version I'd have to be convinced to buy.

I don't understand all the fuzz about it, if you look at the history of modelkits, it is quite likely it is going to be the same 1/12 Camaro as we know it from previous releases, combined with some new wheels and decals.

 

I guess that is it. Nothing more, nothing less. No Foosified body, no RS grille, (both unfortunately IMHO). We don't know for sure, but that is my bet.

I have to agree with this. I would much rather pick up the orange one vs the black one.

Anxiously awaiting the foosey Camaro, but I'd really like to see that '67 big block Vette re-issued, too!

That would be sweet if they brought the Vette back.

i'm currently building the '69 Camaro 3in1 version called street machine..
it doesn't contain the Z/28 hood/bonnet stripes at all ..which i'm not happy with
so i'm kinda hoping they WILL include these in the Foose version ,as to being able to build stock
cause for the life of me i wouldn't know where to get these over here..
i'd also would like to see the Year one Foose design..but i guess retooling it all would be way to expensive in the end..

 I hope to all that is holy Foose did not do a '67 vette. Revell will ruin that one too.

IMHO.

I am just not a Foose fan. I really think it is cool that Revell is doing more in 1/12 but why not a stock RS Z-28???? Their marketing really is a mystery to me.

IMHO I don't care who puts their signature on it, as long as it does not jack up the price I'm ok with it. I made a mistake and traded off my 1:12 vette. I want to build the large scale kits so $70 is not bad, besides that if it does go to HL there's a coupon. If not i usually find it on sale or another coupon somewhere.

I agree.

 

What other "Foose-Parts" does this kit have than those horrible wheels and tires? I don't have a single 1/12 Scale Model Car part, and in my bugdet, buying many parts seperately doesn't work. Then, if the kit has no Stock parts, then I'm not going to pay that big bucks on a kit I could never build, since I don't put those horrible modern parts in my cars. :lol:

I would be floored if stock parts are not included, and we have spoken many times on how Revell understands their target customer. I think stock parts are a safe bet. However guys like Foose and Trepanier are bringing a whole new generation into the custom car hobby. They are the Starbird and Roth of this generation. So this is Revell's way of killing two birds with one stone. Pretty brilliant if you ask me.
