I’ve built the Porsche Junior and Heller Ferguson. I did a video on the Porsche build. I’m really looking forward to the Heller 1/32 Volvo F12 release

It's a re- release of the old Heller Bobcat kit.

Same here.  That kit has been Unobtainium for years and went for very high prices on auction and sales sites.  Lots of the re-issue already up on eBay, priced at US $28 to $37. Now the real trick: finding a vendor who has it in stock.

It's in stock at Heller's website, and they do ship to the US, for a cost.   I'm not aware of any US online vendor of Heller products, I do know some of the Japanese vendors like Hobby Link Japan stock Heller kits, though this one isn't in stock yet at HLJ.

Thanks, I also went and checked the Heller site when I saw the OP.  Didn't check the shipping price, but noticed Heller has knocked $10 off their regular price. That will offset the shipping cost a little, I guess.

HobbyLinc.com carries many Heller kits.  (The U.S. HobbyLinc, not HLJ.)  They're currently showing the Heller "Le Petit Gris" as Out Of Stock. But they do have the Ferguson TS20 & FF30 double kit in stock.  No mention at all yet of the 2680 kit, though.  Not even a "Pre-Order" listing. But sometimes they're a little slow adding new foreign kits, so maybe it will show up eventually.

Update:  I emailed HobbyLinc here in the USA and asked if they would be carrying the Heller M-F 2680.  Their response:  "We hope to have that one but do not have a schedule of when."

Meanwhile, the best eBay deal I could find is linked below.  Seller is in the UK.  His price is approximately US $30.76 plus shipping of about $9.82, for a total of $40.58.  Other foreign sellers have it at a lower price, but higher shipping, as usual.  This seller has over 70,000 positive feedbacks, so he seems legit.  When I checked a few minutes ago, he still had the kit in stock.  I ordered one and will let you know how it works out.

I received mine yesterday from an eBay seller in GB.  Took 2 weeks for shipping, $46 total.  It looks like a really cool kit, the only downside is the typical Heller clear parts that will need to be carefully masked and painted.

The fe-mail carrier just dropped off my Heller 2680 tractor from the UK (see post above).  I placed the order thru eBay on Oct. 8 and it arrived today, Oct. 15.  One week to come all the way across the Atlantic!  Can't beat that, and the price was fair, too.

Yep, the ancient Heller tradition of doing...interesting things with clear parts.  Their Hispano-Suiza K6 kit has an interior limousine divider with fantastic detail molded into it: wood-grain storage drawers and cabinets, frame around the divider window etc.  But it's all molded as one big clear piece. The interior side panels also have great detail, including a readable clock.  And are also molded in clear.
