Yes, you are right, i wasn't aware of that... Absent of kevlar(?) imitation in front compartment leed me to think that this was re-release of regular version..The high end version already corrected that, right?
You are right, only high end had that, and if im not mistaken on pictures there are visible security pins on wheels locknuts, also feature of high end version..Wasn't this only on the high end model?
i expect them to be re branded ottos just as always. Wouldbt be surprised to see some of them show up as ottos later on in other colors as we have seen in the past.I'm curious if it's a rebranded Otto.
I would like to see those rally cars too, but the 1993 version is a ST185 (the most successful of the rally Celicas) and the 1995 is the ST205.The fact they are doing the 1991 WRC Toyota Celicas in Diecast 1/18 is refreshing. But I’d be super pleased if they did Juha Kankkunen’s 1993 Toyota Celica (working pop-up headlights would be a bonus) and Didier Auriol’s 1995 Rally Corsica winning Toyota Celica in Diecast 1/18 too. For Kyosho to also do, in fully-opening die cast 1/18, the Ferrari 488 Pista and Ferrari 355 GTS w/opening headlights would be a God-send from Heaven
So what's the big deal about that? I would think every new model that has yet to be made would probably need new toolings anyway. So if they have to, assuming they agree to make such models, bring it on.That would require two brand new toolings, since I don't think either was produced back in the day.
Treat me like a guinea pig, I've got a 'new' old mould Stratos + the all-new Land Cruiser from them. So far so good in the rash department.Some re-releases I've been hoping for, including the F40 - a rash free version of it, I'm hoping! Speaking of paint rash, does anyone think that Kyosho leaned their lesson, or that they even give a monkey's?
I also might pick one or two of the old Lambos. I'm not too impressed with the Cobras tbh, stance and fit/finish look all over the place there.
Could you please elaborate on it more? I'd love to add a Cobra and I guess there's no competition currently. Been looking at the pictures and I'm not convinced, but they don't seem bad. I'd love to hear your thoughts.I'm not too impressed with the Cobras tbh, stance and fit/finish look all over the place there.
Funny, I have a regular one and I was convinced the regular edition has an opening cap too... Strange. According to Minotaurus, it does not. Here's his great comparo of hi-end vs non-hi-end (mind you, there's a disclaimer he's also added some detail to the front and back compartments in both): 1987 Ferrari F40 1:18 Kyosho Hi-end, Kyosho comparison – Minotaurus I've also never noticed the incorrect placement of the rear lights.In the pictures it shows the f40 has an opening fuel cap. Wasn't this only on the high end model? If so could be a re-release of that. Would be even better if that was the case.
For opening die-casts: 220-250 USD. Sealed resins/die-casts sell for half that or less.What is the typical pricepoint for a Kyosho these days?
I am liking that Evo IX MR, but likely not enough to spend a ton on it. I know it's sealed, but that's a non-issue for me. I'm curious if it's a rebranded Otto. My 3000GT / GTO has Kyosho branding but it's an Otto.
