I talked to the owners of Greenlight/GMP who are based in the Netherlands!

This year a Plymouth Roadrunner 1970 in a new collor wil come out! They confirmed it by email today! Also expect new Camaro's and Pontiacs!
This is going to be a great year for the Muscle car collectors!!!

Just got confirmation from Greenlight-owner Tom (Robin), that Greenlight has bought the GMP molds. ACME will be co-selling the models.

I've had contact with Robin too. Didn't get news about the Roadrunner yet. Me likey!!  :drool5:

I'd love to see some more 1/18 Pontiac Trans Ams, only this time with BOWLING BALL HUBCAPS!!!  It would also be sweet to have a 1/18 Pontiac G8 in B-LACK!  The Solstice known as "Jazz" from Transformers 1 would be cool as well.  Just as a car, of course!

That's what i got from Robin. Greenlight bought the GMP molds,  ACME will be co-selling the Greenlight models.
Just like Greenlight sells the Autoworld "General Lee" in a Greenlight box.

Whatever they do, let's hope they get the 1/18 Indycars designs corrected next year.  The return of steerable front wheels, removable cowlings and driver figures would be a sweet bonus too

This is going to be a great year for the Muscle car collectors!!!
That's very good news, it they're selling from the EU it'll be great for us, no silly import duties etc!! But I guess the MRSP's will be higher.

A new Roadrunner though? I'm interested!!

F**k you Photobucket.
