Uh...no. Just a change to "shipped". It's been that way for several days, now. Which leads me to believe that it hasn't, actually. B)

I saw in one of their emails that they send out that they were planning to start dispatching the Mooneyes kits late last week...so I guess we might see them THIS week.  Guess we'll see!

EDIT: didn’t see the above post before posting mine 🤪

Okat. NOW, my Mooneyes has been shipped!

Mine too!  I’m excited for the kit…and to see what extra stuff is ACTUALLY in the box (and see it).  Curious about the new tires too.

This has been mentioned before, but I wonder what else Atlantis can do to maximize that M👀neyes licensing whilst they’ve got it.  I’m a sucker for anything with that logo on…

Strange that the unplated parts are bagged while the plated trees are not.

I thought that too, but it works the same I guess. they kept the chrome separated in the box.

Look at the white tree. The Revell Roadster Chassis Speed Equipment parts pack! That's pretty darn amazing, something many of us hoped but never expected we'd ever see again.

I believe that roadster chassis is in there because one piece is needed for the dragster.  What was originally a tow bar was reworked to create a radius rod for the dragster's front suspension.

If that is the case, then between the rest of that pack and the leftover parts on the other trees, you should be able to build a complete roadster chassis, minus engine, tires, and body of course.

LOTS of extra goodies........Atlantis is looking VERY smart right now. Not having to wait for a container from ASIA, huge cost increases......that bid for the Revell Monogram tooling is looking like the move of the century!

I'm impressed with it, the tires look great IMHO. Crips parts.

Guys....whoever dreamed that in a million years we would be able to buy newly molded parts of the original Revell Parts Pack suspension and chassis parts????   Not this guy, that is for sure. 

What a great moment for the hobby.  Thanks to Peter V. and the entire Atlantis team!!!

Thanks for the pics Jason, now I'm REALLY excited!  More cool stuff in the box than I could've hoped for! 

I hope Atlantis has good stocks of this one - I can see it being a GREAT seller, for the parts alone 😍

eBay sellers parting out this kit in 3-2-1.......!

Kit looks awesome. I'll bet Round2 narrow piecrust slicks will fit on this kit too. And, there are some nice extra wheels on the chrome tree. Talk about feeding the Parts Box!

Bring on the Fiat!
