    I know of at least one company that's looking at doing an exclusive run of a couple of these if Revell doesn't do it themselves.

    Who said it would have it?  They've been clear with what this kit has and doesn't have. 
    edit: I linked this blog post in one of the other Mod Rod threads a few months ago - http://www.collectormodel.com/round2-models/2554-the-inside-scoop-on-amts-1929-ford-model-a-mod-rod-reissue/#sthash.2rxMLn8H.dpbs

    I don't think I'll buy one for myself so I'm not going to open this one up, but here are some box pics.  Don't know why it correctly rotated one but not the others, still figuring out new phone...

    Yep. End of June.  This month's "new" stuff are the F&F Yenko Camaro and the 1/12 Chopper reissues.

    Or just wait. I have no doubt there will be a follow-up stock (or donk/lowrider) version.

    They're shipping to distributors now, we got ours yesterday afternoon.  Buy 'em up now, it's gonna be a hot one and as is typical with new hot Revell, they'll probably be a little scarce for a month or two after the first batch sells through.  https://www.megahobby.com/products/1983-hurst-oldsmobile-1-25-revell-monogram.html 
  8. Brett Barrow added a post in a topic Anyone have any real insider info on Revell's "new" '70 Charger?   

    I'd just like to point out that the #1 best selling kit of last year was: (And the General Lee was #2, but there were some extenuating circumstances with that one)

     
    And the #1 car kit by a long shot so far this year (just preorders, too) is this:

    All these kits just offer one building option. Revell has years of sales data, they know their customer base pretty well. The first thing I learned when I got into this business 15 years ago was to quit thinking like an enthusiast.hobbyist and start thinking like a beginner.  2 in 1 and 3 in 1 kits can often intimidate the beginner or average builder and as such are not really marketed to them. Revell's core are the beginners and average modelers.

    They look funky because the real things look funky.

    They're not unless you're an RPP shop, and not everyone is.  Usually RPP comes in around the 20th, this was a bit early.  You only get a handful, and it's a package deal where you get a pre-determined (by Revell) number of every new kit every month, you don't get to pick and choose. Not everyone does it.

    Yeah, the whole point of RPP is to give brick and mortar shops a head start against the internet guys. 
    I can't buy one for myself until our regular stock comes in , but I did take the shrink off one of our RPP  stock. Was really surprised to see the red pinstripe pre-painted on the wheels. Nice touch! I'm not going to open up the inner bags because I have to sell this but here are a couple sneak peeks.

    Anybody pick up a 77 Monte Carlo they want to trade?  I can trade any of the current Revell snaps (or anything current of equal value, really).  I went to pick one up for myself a while back but our source had gotten rid of them (likely where these came from).

    They buy overstocks & closeouts from distributors (or possibly straight from the manufacturer) who just want to get something even if it means taking a loss. Most of these were sales dogs (sorry Meyers Manx fans!) or longtime kits that were bought a little too deep (like Revell snaps for the Christmas season). You wont see the new hotness in there.
