Yet again, Tower Hobbies has posted information on upcoming new Revell kits before any official announcement from Revell.  Great internal communication inside the Hobbico empire!  

 

Right now I don't have any more info than what can be gleaned from the Tower listings, anything in parentheses are my additional thoughts.  

 

1/25 Starsky & Hutch Torino (wha?!?  Talk about coming outta left field! By price appears to be a full-detail kit)  

Tommy Ivo Showboat (reissue I'm sure)

2014 Mustang GT (nice that the last of that generation won't be over looked, I've gotten a lot of requests and folks asking if it would be done.  By the price looks like it'll be one of the new pre-paints)

Acura Integra (assuming reissue of the Tuner series kit)

1/24 Porsche 911 (assuming a Monogram reissue, but who knows?)

1/24 VW Rabbit (RoG rebox?)

1/24 1955 Ford Panel truck (judging by the scale, I'm assuming a modified version of the pickup - reissue, forgot that it exists)

Ed Roth Surfite

2014 Corvette Stingray (by price point looks to be pre-paint)

2013 Camaro ZL1 and Challenger SRT 8 (different numbers from prepaints already announced, assuming these are different colors or possibly unpainted versions)

Matt and Debbie Hay's Thunderbird Pro Street (reissue) 

 

Snap kits:

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (assuming modified from glue kit)

1/25 Ford Police Car (assuming the new Taurus-based Interceptor)

2014 Corvette Stingray

Different #'s and cheaper price 2015 Mustang and Audi R8 (assuming these are clamshell packaged versions of the boxed kits, the clamshells usually run cheaper than boxed kits)  

 

Well, that's what I came up with, I'd expect Revell to post something on their Facebook page over the next week or so with more information.

I assume the '55 Ford panel truck is just a straight reissue..as for the VW Rabbit, that is likely a rebox of the upcoming Revell of Germany new tool Mk I Golf.   (Don't recall a Revell or Monogram Rabbit previously, though they have reboxed the RoG Mark II Golf in the past).

Oh yeah, the 55 panel already exists, forgot about that one.

I am excited they are repoping the Integra. I got one for three bucks (parts still in bags) at a flea market and stupidly sold it to a friend for ten bucks, then I started to like Japanese cars.

Definitely want a Starsky and Hutch Torino!! May snag an Integra too. I would take the police car IF it's Taurus based and can be built stock or close to stock.

Another thing I think many people are over looking is that we could also have the Explorer based Interceptor as a possibility since they haven't specified.

I don't know how we've gone this long without a starsky and hutch model of some kind.

Thanks, Jim.  Most of those have been covered in other threads, but good to have them in one spot.  I added the Pro Street Thunderbird on my list, I saw it but forgot to make a note when I was putting mine together.

Good to see the Pro Street T-bird, hopefully molded in white this time!

 

I was gonna grab an original to use under a Pro Street Moebius F100, now I can get a new one.

 

Any thoughts on how Revell kept the S&H Torino under wraps, yet its release date is only two months after the '67 Camaro - which had a test shot on display at NNL East back in April?

 

Thanks to Brett & Jim for the lists!

Showboat! Great news for traditional hot rod builders. Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead. It was getting tough to find this kit for a reasonable price just to rob the engines out of it. :)

Yeah, thanks much, Brett and Jim!

 

Exciting!  Add me to the number who'd love to see a '72 Torino fastback from the Starsky & Hutch tooling, but heck, S&H is pretty kool too!

1/16?

I believe that is what it is...the Petty Charger w/ different decals? Or backdated to a '71?  Thought I saw it mentioned here or one of the other modeling forums.
