    Welp, its a good thing I waited on the Monster Truck flipnose reissue, because the stock config looks cooler and would go well with the 240 and 280zs in my stash being out of place.
  2. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic NNL East and the most wanted list!   

    I put down a few on that list when I was at NNL East:
    97 Camaro SS and Firebird Firehawk tools from their existing f-body mold
    The "ghost" Honda CRX that got canceled but the whole tool supposedly completed 
    GMC Syclone and Chevy S10 Wave Rider reissues
    New tools like a 94' RX7 2 in 1 and Supra 2 in 1 with a stock option if possible
    And reissues of stuff like the Subrau WRX, 93 Civic (good F&F fodder), 99 Civic Hatch. I know these aren't to everyone's tastes, but the latter are stuff that wouldn't cost a lot to shoot up since they were fairly recent. I talked with Ed Saxton about the 78' RX7 release date and what happened with the planned NSX reissue. He said they looked into putting it out in the F&F line to replicate the car from one of the recent entries, but dropped those plans before release (which sounds like the movie car, while almost stock, had custom bits and wouldn't justify the cost in retooling given it wouldn't be a hot seller). I asked him if Revell would explore reissuing it in the "performance" line since other imports like the RX7 and Miata are in it, he said "Absolutely!", so we'll see what happens.

    The Miata is nice to see again... Guess someone at Revell was listening.

    Wonder if it'll still include the custom option (body kit, ducktale wing, etc) from Matchbox Street Machine issue, which was also carried over to the 1990s reissue?
    Since the MPC Datsun monster truck is out, lets hope the 82 Celica isn't too far down the line.
  5. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic New added to Round 2   

    The repoped Datsun monster truck is MPC, which makes me hope the Celica and a few others aren't too far down the line.

    At least that would be better than the $45-70 i've seen them normally fetch (including the 1990s reissue, which I was fortunate enough to nab at $20 back in June)
  7. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic New added to Round 2   

    Of course, when I just nabbed a Matchbox issue of the custom version for $15 ata show today, NOW THEY'RE PLANNING TO RE RELEASE IT!
    All we need is the MPC 82 Toyota Celica to release (sure the molds still exist complete) and the 80s Japanese sports car trio with the 280zx and the Monogram RX7 will be finish!  What would also be nice to see if the molds exist, and are in good shape, is the MPC Toyota 2000 GT convertible as that hasn't been seen in a long time, plus they could brand it as an 007 product (the car was in YOLT) to increase sales potential.
    Also wouldn't hurt to repop the F&F Supras while they're at it, branded as Bomex and Veilside kits respectively if they cannot get the F&F licence (hey, they're rereleasing stuff they put out almost 10yrs ago, so whats so wrong about releasing Supras without the F&F branding?

    25th Anniversary L.I.A.R.S Model Car Show and Swap Meet - Saturday 11/12
    I don't know if any our fellow islanders have post anything yet and I'm not the one in charge of it, but it doesn't seem like anyone mentioned it already so I'll go ahead. 
    Just a heads up about our show/swap meet to those who are in east coast or near New York. Its next Saturday November 11 at Freeport Recreational Center, 130 East Merrick Road, Freeport, NY from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM. This is the 25th anniversary of our club, the Long Island Automotive Society (L.I.A.R.S), and we will be having a special anniversary theme that is any car painted Tamiya Silver Leaf TS-30 and with a 2 or 5 in the make year (eg. car is from 1962, 1965, the 20's, the 50's, etc).
    More info including directions and contest rules are explained on our downloadable PDF fliers here: http://www.liarsmodelcarbuilders.com/#!events
    For those who are on Long Island and want to have something to do on Thursdays, we meet every third Thursday of the month at the Henrietta Acampora Recreational Center on 39 Montauk Hwy, Blue Point, NY.  If interested, contact Rich Argus @ r.argus@juno.net
    Hope to see some of you at the show!

    That may have been a few years ago, recently I saw one selling for $50 sealed and the original 1992 snap-tite issue was $40 from ModelCarMountian, yet I paid abour $20 for mine at Daves back almost 10 years ago.
  10. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Have two of them, but the Revell one holds a place in my heart as its one of the 1st builds at a time when my skills were starting to improve. I got the 1999 issue at Daves Hobby in Freeport as it was the only place I ever saw one there (at the time). After moving around and such, its in pieces but is almost complete for a resto as i'm missing the suspension and dashboard.

    Bummer  Looks like the sky high ebay prices will rule once again.
    At least the RX7 is still happening, so far.
  12. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    I'm still scratching my head as to why they leaked instructions for a kit that seemed to be never released. Anyone know Ed Saxtons email address? He would be the one to know if the NSX is still planning to be released, but bits got leaked early, or was planned but somehow canceled.
  13. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Is there any other information regarding this kit? I saw a 2015 copyright, so I hope it wasn't something that got canceled, or maybe they're pushing it to a different date. Hopefully, the Mazda Miata, 93 Civic and Civic hatchback aren't too far from being announced.

    The BM Corvette was last seen as the California Wheels Corvette coupe, and had almost all the BM parts with a few extras, but with exception of the goodyear tires (mags were still on the tree though) and decals. I suspect this will be a 2 in 1 repop of the Cali Wheels but with the correct wheels + tires and decals restored for Baldwin Motion car.

    Tower says late January for the RX7, not too long of a wait since I got a backlog of stuff to tackle at!
