In that case I should hold on to my murcielagos since they
will go up in value ;-)

Tim, I would love to see a gloss white AutoScale of all the Lamborghini's. A white Countach LP 500S, Diablo, and Murcielago would be sweet. I love white cars, but the none-painted white ones don't look as nice as the gloss-coated ones we get in the AutoScale series. I also love to see a limited edidtion black Countach LP 500S with the wing up front like in the Cannonnball Run movie, but not necessarily from the movie. I sort of like the current black Countach, I just don' care for the stripes on it.

Tim,

real ?

The murcis appear there as if they have heard your prayers (and ours) and will be available for the 2008 catalog.

What do you know about this?

Sorry, there is not a production run that I see in the near future......

Tim, so what you are saying is the 08 product catalog is incorrect and we will not be seeing any re-pro. on the mercis for 08'?

I don't think that would matter much since a license is a license and I'm sure kyosho is trying to go by protocol. If it was merely a financial issue, then I'm sure if demand was there they'd make it. It's a legality issue then I think we won't see them.

Licenses cover product category, production numbers, geographic regions of sale, production length and of course the kickback amount to the license holder. I'm sure one of these issues is keeping the murc from making an appearance stateside.

It should be noted that tim said, US catalog. Doesn't mean it won't be available from Japan. Look at the Mclaren Gulf. That's not being sold in the US due to licensing issues but available in Japan which is why I picked up 3 extra. :)

er... yep it's real... i bought the catalog when i was in h.k. last feb... was too lazy to scan the page, so i took a pic, and posted it... i believe that it's a japanese catalog since most of the literature was in japanese... :D

i don't really know what the deal is on how kyosho distributes their products to different parts of the world...

in some catalogs, kyosho lists some products "for japanese market only"...

and yet some of these products end up being offered up for sale, and eventually end up overseas...

they are not listed in the `08 english catalog. Sorry.

kinda sad that it's not listed in the '08 english catalog though...
