I have the kit, and it seems pretty good.  It's very similar to this kit:

Might even have the step bumper, too; but it's been a while since I looked in the box.  Just like the one in the review, everything is molded shut (doors, rear doors, hood), and there are no rear windows.

Pretty much. AMT 626 was released in October 2009, so almost exactly ten years ago now. I see an additional colored transparent "glass" piece on the new kit, but everything else, save for the decal sheet and box (and maybe the slicks?) appears to be identical to the '09 issue.

The 2009 issue has an additional red tinted glass shot included as well. So I'm assuming straight reissue other than box art and decals. I'm fine with that. My stash is getting thin. I just Hope Hobby Lobby will pick it up. Good hobby shops are few and far between in my neck of South Carolina.

There's an existing topic(s) discussing that very kit, only a search away:

You're right, but it looks like only the red piece was included, not the clear.

It had both. I have a few in my stash.

Too bad that Round2 can't produce ALL NEW KITS ..... 😥😥😥

While I would like to see some new stuff too, I have no problem with Round2 reissuing older kits because some of the stuff they have reissued in the past few years like the Pinto, Datsun pickup, and Subaru Brat just to name a few have been kits that I've had interest in having but not at insane collectors prices to buy them. There are even some of the kits reissued lately that haven't seen the light of day since either before I was born or at the least before I began building so I never had the chance to build some of these kits, so regardless of how they may not measure up to more modern tooling standards, to some of us in the hobby they are still "new" kits to us.

Now that's a great attitude! 👍

Yeah, my definition of a "new kit" is one I have never owned. The '59 Imperial fits this. So do the Fuzz Duster and the Pinto Popper. So, bring 'em on!

And if it has to have Coke Branding to Sell, then I am all in on that too. If the only way I'm going to get an AMC Matador or Javelin, is for it to be a Coke Tie In, tell me how much Coke I need to buy!!!

Agreed... I love some of the old rigs that they've been coming out with  ...

   I would gladly open my wallet to this if Round 2 could ever get this re released.

I'd buy one of those no matter what kind of markings are in the box.

Absolutely, cause they bring big bucks now on the bay.

A full bumper 2nd Gen? I would definitely buy that too.

Too bad it only includes the short early production one piece rear spoiler.  The full bumper cars look best with the tall 3-pc rear spoiler IMHO.

I agree. Though that is available on the Motion Baldwin kits.

That's true.  However, I bet as soon as the full bumper kit comes out, they will "discontinue" the Baldwin Motion kit.
