Talk about a huge,steaming pile of "Meh", that list is the exemplar. If Blitz Partners want to "Move the Metal" that is not gonna do it.

Hopefully the list gets a better reaction in Europe.

These are the German releases, they will likely have a different group of items announced for release here.  The '69 Mustang has been available here for a while now.  The German release will be in a different box, maybe with different decals, probably available here at a slightly higher price.

The German releases bear watching in that they might give some insight into German preferences in American cars.  New tooling in the future might be a bit different when it comes to subject matter, and that could be a good thing depending on your likes and dislikes.

I don't remember Revell making the '06 Concept Camaro. I remember and have the one from AMT. Not saying they didn't. Just don't remember one from them.

The first issue of the Revell 5th gen Camaro concept was in a normal size box w the kit in silver on the box.  Over a decade ago IIRC.

Yep, same kit, different boxing

It's sad the only thing on that list that even interests me in the slightest isn't even a car, it's the bucket wheel excavator that has not only been one of my Holy Grail kits but just last weekend has hit my shelf thanks to a friend that wants me to build it for them! I'm just curious now to see what the price is going to be on it and if I may get one for myself as well or not, since the one I have now is the best of both worlds since not only do I get to build one of my grail kits, my friend is having me build it as a commision build so I get paid for building a kit I've always wanted but just could never pull the trigger on!

RevellAG has always done these 4Q/1Q handful of reissue type of announcements. The actual 2020 kits are announced New Years Day, but this gives them some models to release early in the year, since the 1/1/2020 announcements that involve new or significantly modified tooling are always 2nd Half of the year items.

I wonder if Round 2 or even Moebius could buy the automotive tooling bank from Revell?  Almost going out of business in the U.S. market and then regrouping in Germany was a scary thing.  I'd hate to see them go the way of Johan with their molds being divested never to be seen again.

Remember that this one was the famous  "Make It - Take It" program car.  They gave a ton of these to Michael's stores.  A member of our club found them as bag kits on the store shelf for super cheap and bought them.  So they became  a club project.  

Pretty promo-like. Nicely molded, I enjoyed building it with my own retro twist.

You guys do realize this is the Revell GERMANY announcement? Revell USA is a separate entity both owned by the same company (Blitz). So, just because there's not a lot of US market stuff on the list I wouldn't be too concerned just yet.

Actually, 4 out of the 9 announced items are US subjects, pretty good representation of US domestic auto kits intended for the European market.

I'd really like to see them do more modern European stuff, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

For whatever reason, I never think of those snap kits from Revell.

Like a 720, and a Koenigsegg. Or the vastly overdone 991/992, GT3/RS/TT/whatever. 🙄. Pininfarina Bautista, Rimac, Taycan, Senna....

Really nothing to kit at all. Stuff the C8, real cars needed.

Those would be interesting,  Current Porsches would be nice--the only kit out there is the Panamera.  I'd like to see more down to earth stuff like current Audis, BMWs, Mercs....

That reboxing was done I think within the last three years maybe, I could be mistaken.
