Off of a Sci-Fi board I can see photos of the Firestone Macho Machine Ford F-series 4X4 pickup last released under Model King. Also in the background as a 51 Chevy Bel Air and the Baldwin Motion Camaro.  The 1966 Batmobile appears to be in a new box.  All from Round 2 except the Batmobile. There's also new 1966 Batman Figures.  That's all I can find out so far. 

 

I don't think there will be any news from Revell until Sat.

Here's a picture of my Model King version of the F-series 4x4 pickup from my old Fotki albums for those who don't recall it.

The 66 Batmobile is getting new figures with better likenesses of Adam West and Burt Ward and their faces will be featured on the new box-top.  Polar Lights didn't have likeness rights when the kit first came out.  Now that they're doing the figure kits, they do. 

 

I have friends and co-workers at the iHobbyExpo show, I might have more info tonight, I've sent a few e-mails, but no responses yet.

So, you're saying I will HAVE to buy another Batmobile kit to get the 1966 likenesses of Batman and Robin?! Man! (Sarcasm intended, all I need is an excuse to buy another one, it's great kit!)

Don't know but I like the 73-77 round headlight style grille better then the later grille.

Better than getting the 2013 likeness of Adam West or Burt Ward....... ;-)

iHobby has been open to the public for an hour now.  Where's the reports?  The sneak peaks? The blurry cell phone camera photos?  Sheesh you'd think a magazine of this place's stature would have someone there when the doors opened this morning...

Didn't they have a press day yesterday?  I would have thought the magazine would have had a reporter there..

The only reports from IHobby I saw were from Sprue Bros. (mostly military stuff) and Starship Modeler (Sci-Fi stuff) over on Facebook. Haven't seen anything else at this point other than a coupled of kits in photos of other stuff.

 

For those with the benefit of Facebook, you can have a look:

Sprue Brothers: https://www.facebook...90673951&type=3

 

Starship Modeler: https://www.facebook...24736644&type=3

 

I believe that both Revell USA and Moebius (maybe Round 2 as well?) were also going to have displays at the NNL Nats in Toledo to announce their new items for 2014, so should be some more news later today or tomorrow.

1) 1979 Ford Firestone Pickup 1/25 Reissue Jan-2014 

2) Knight Rider Firebird 1/25 Reissue Feb-2014 

 

3) 1951 Chevy Bel Air Coupe 1/25 Reissue Feb-2014 

 

4) 1970 1/2 Baldwin Motion Camaro 1/25 Reissue Feb-2014 

 

5) Munsters Monster Truck 1/25 Reissue Mar-2014 

 

6) 1963 Corvette 1/25 Reissue Mar-2014 

 

 

Just a few thoughts and opinions regarding the above...

 

1) I'd have to say this is a direct response to Moebius' forthcoming earlier generation Ford Pickups, but I guess there's nothing wrong with catching a little wind off someone else's sails.

 

2) Gotta be another "Silver Screen" TV/Movie box version. There can't be that many people wanting a K.I.T.T. model to build, can there be? Maybe the Hoff still has a lot of appeal in the industry...

 

3) See #1 for both the "stealing some thunder", this time from Revell's '50 Olds (or maybe something else TBA?) and because I believe/suspect the bulk of this tooling is already at the molding facility (assuming much of the tooling is shared with the '51 Fleetline and '51 convertible) making another reissue relatively easy. Looks like the coupe was last issued in 2002 or so.

 

4) Good to have this one back. The wheels and tires alone seem to sell the kit to lots of folks.

 

5) See #2

 

6) Might be good for kitbashing with the Revell 1/25 '67 Vette convertible which was just reissued, and I think this is the only Split Window in 1/25 scale?

Maybe there is , Aoshima, keeps releasing different version's of K.I.T.T , there must be a demand for it I guess
