Nowadays one can buy the full opening Autoart version for nearly the same price as the Otto. I don't get the choice to make this model.
Are we comparing the older full opening Autoart against some of the more popular Otto which has soared in price? If i am not mistaken the new AA releases wants 3 digit figure where as Otto's RRP is at around 60EUR currently? But totally onboard with you about choosing full opening diecast over sealed models that should be a no brainer in most cases unless price difference is great.

It's not a general comparison, but just for this model. Otto costs €70 without shipping, the AA would be around €80-100 from what I've seen them go for.

Ah gotcha ;) I presume you were referring to the Lexus? I still patiently waiting for a “cheapie” IS to show up LOL… so far I managed to get the ES for cheap so hopefully I will net an IS next:):)

I like the Audi, but not sure boring silver is enough to buy.

Yes, and also the 200. It won a Safari rally.

Agreed about that choice.
And I doubt even Spark would tackle it, even in a niche area of our hobby such as rallying, this is a niche subject.
It's something Z models as an entity should be concentrating on, rather than comically overblown 911's and others.
And what of the Z models 1/12th scale subjects that were spoken about?
If they hoped the wretched 2CV was a toe in the water - it's not surprising nothing more has happened.
I noted with some amusement how quickly it was dumped into the clearance bin.

I have the Audi in red, too. On the fence as to whether silver would have been better. I still like it in red, so no regrets. Plus I have the red GT Coupe coming soon, too. Any word on the hot Yaris - I can’t remember what it’s called now but you know the one :)

Interesting choice of event for the Legacy - his very first win was in New Zealand 1993, an easy conversion for the one they released previously.
If I remember correctly, this was the first win For Subaru in the WRC, and the last event before Prodrive introduced the Impeza.
I need to head over to the search engine to see if the old grey matter is on point. :)
