2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

Recommended Posts

Glad to see a styleside Dodge Pickup! Not surprised at the 77-78 Grille. Was hoping that the GMC Astro would have been a repop of the original issue with the gas turbine engine but the later 70’s issue is still good!

After watching Jeff Dunham with his Ford Cruising Van and Cruising Pinto Wago, I'd like to build these two kits

Found this pic on FB...mostly car kits, but you can see what may be the final Dodge pickup box art, kind of retro style, but not the same as the annuals.

Tower Hobbies has it listed for pre-order for late March, but who knows...Round 2 release dates tend to change.

AS for the Dodge P/U, I'd expect it sometime in the summer. And that is Okay. It will get here when it gets here.

Kind of surprised they're not Coca-Cola-ing the Autocar.

Yeah, I'm surprised they didn't do a Coca-Cola livery for the bulldozer or fire trucks.

Maybe Round2 got paid by Coca Cola to use the logo on their kits, Coca Cola Company spends around $4 billion per year on advertising globaly so I don't think it's impossible.

The "Peterbilt Wrecker" will be the 1100-series cabbed 359.  Originally kit T533, which is the same as the wrecker kit ran by Ertl/Racing Champs/RC2 in the 2002-2005 time frame.

Fresh box art, new decals.

Yes!  Finally the Autocar Dump Truck is coming back.  I've got to start saving for cases of this one.

These bidders need to come out from under their rock,why would you bid way more on a brand new kit that everyone else is selling at 80 to 100 % of the retail price!Not to mention the incorrect box art displayed with the add

That seller's prices sure are all over the map.  I displayed all their items for sale, then searched for "model."  They're selling a mint-in-box Rommel's Rod for $19.99, which seems sort of low. 

And this slice of nostalgia, or nausea: a Palmer 1/32 scale "Screamin' Demon." With chrome parts!  For that one, they're asking $29.99.

What IMHO would be neat is, if Round-2 puts in the round fenders from the earlier tractor too, so you end up with a 2'n 1 kit.

If it sold 5K kits....I'd say do it!!!!  Coke collectors buy up all things Coke.......plus I bet R2 got a blanket license.....as long as it sells....I see no issue!
