AMT-1124 Supernatural Impala

Recommended Posts

I thought this kit deserves its own thread. So we can all share the info and rumors. So far I know that it is in fact 4 doors.

Per those in the know it's a modified re-tool of the 2 door kit. NO other info was given.

R2 is keeping this one under wraps. Can't find a single box art or product image anywhere. Either it's really good or it's really bad.

(sitting forward in chair, rubbing hands together in anticipation) alrighty then, one to finally build, and not just a die-cast...

I have watched the show for years, and while not a huge fan of 4 door cars, it is such an iconic car and so heavily tied to the show, I am surprised it has taken anyone this long to get around to it. The show is nearly run its course. 

To be honest, I think there are MANY movie/TV show tie ins that the model companies may have missed the boat on, that would potentially gain new builders.

Same here. I'm a HUGE fan of the show and can't believe how long this took to make. I hope it's an accurate rendition of "Baby", and not just a cobbled together effort just to get it to market. That will determine how many kits I'll buy. I have a couple of the 2 door kits I was going to kitbash, but I'll wait to see what actually makes it to the shelves first.

If it doesn’t get the Chad seal of approval, I’m out!

And even THEN we won't know what the model looks like, just the box. And Chad will use his superpower to cloak anything you might actually want to see on the box with lighting glare.

Be fair. Revell released a S&H Torino only 35 years after the show was ditched.
In model company terms that was lightning quick.

So even if R2 releases the SN Impala in 2054, they'll have still beaten Revell.

As much as I enjoy watching you people malign Chad for all manner of things while ignoring how factually inaccurate the videos are in terms of correct release times...How is it Chad's fault that whomever is actually filming the video isn't adjusting the angle of the camera to prevent glare? He's not filming the thing himself and therefore can't know what angle is good, bad or indifferent.

How do you know he's not using an iCr_ap phone on a selfie stick and recording himself?

You might have a point. (But how many IQ points would it take for SOMEBODY at R2 to get the bright idea to TAKE THE FREAKIN' SHRINK WRAP OFF THESE BOXES!) Now, who can we blame for the fact that he can't seem to hold the box still for more than half a second? :D

MMTC lasted a full season.  The Hero lasted only 13 weeks.  It may have been off the air around the time the kit came out!  I've got a Hero Imperial, was looking for info about the show.  Other than who was in it, not much available (synopsis of individual episodes, etc).

*If* they do an accurate '67 Impala 4dr ht, I can see them being able to get at least 3 releases out of it--the car from the show w/ any show-specific extras like spotlights and the custom wheels, a stock '67 Impala 4dr ht, and the obligatory Coke version.

MPC did a 'Street Hawk' Mustang, and that show was pretty short-lived (though that was just a rebox of an existing kit w/ no new tooling).      MPC's 'Hardcastle & McCormick' kit was odd--it was the Coyote kit car body over the chassis and running gear of the Ford GT Mark IV (I wonder if the GT Mark IV body tooling is lost to history? Would love to see that one reissued).

They also did the highly successful  Barnabas Vampire Van, the non existing prototype of which never appeared in Dark Shadows.
But the '32 Chevy van kit had to die for that rubbish.

The Green Hornet didn't make it through one full season (cancelled on March 14, 1967 after only 26 episodes) and Aurora was on the ball with a Black Beauty on the shelves in time for the premier episode.
