though i would kick this off this week...

although the 50th anniv. autoscales were scheduled for release this month, it seems we won't be getting them till 2014. i suspect they will start hitting the shelves in the next week or two, hopefully.

we also have the hint of the new racing R8 that is coming. it's already been figured out and the 1:1 shown on other sites. either way, always looking forward to another racing body and an R8 to boot. it's a shame the pricing puts it out of reach for many. :(

As far as I can tell it will be released in the same manner that the white R8 was released....First as a mini-z sports readyset (it is currently available from at least one seller on the bay), then I'm guessing it will be released later as a ASC. The pink FR-S/BRZ is also currently availabe as a sports readyset.

*off topic edit*
Also happened to find a WHITE MR-03 Chassis Parts from the ?2010? Shizuoka Fair in Japan. Kind of cool, never seen that before.

2013.12.29, 09:36 PM
there are autoscale codes for the bodies so we know they are coming. as mentioned, they typically come after inclusion in a rtr or arr. north american distribution can be as much as a month behind japan. the japan market date was december.

the recent discover of a release of a clear Audi R8 and clear blue Subaru WRX has been discussed lately and thought this was the most appropriate venue given it doesn't seem to be a main line release but a limited blind bag offering similar to the past clear red Ferrari Enzo.

FYI, Kyoshosan (http://kyoshosan.blogspot.com/) has very nice pictures up on his blog.

good luck getting one of these... i've never seen the clear red enzo for sale anywhere.

they both look like the bomb!!! loving them both... wondering at what price point they'll be selling them and when will they be available???
hmm just read arch's post... march seems tooo far away.... 16,800Y is approx 161$ for the mini-z rtr "sport" platform... wondering what's happening to the 2.4ghz asf platform?... anybody know? is kyosho phasing them out in favor of the "sport"?

I just hope it will not shatter like a clear chassis from one good hit.
I think this is good for show & tell classes.

not likely however always possible. the clear orange LM bodies did not shatter in races i've witnessed.

TheSteve
2014.01.28, 01:13 PM
Mine will be for display purposes only, and perhaps some solo running with various LED colors inside the body to light it up.

***edit***

Just finished assembly. Not easy to get a good shot of the body. For now its on a presentation chassis, eventually it will be a chrome mr03 chassis.

I've seen:

-silver chrome - chassis, top cover, wide/narrow top front, battery doors.
-black/dark chrome - chassis, top cover, wide/narrow top front.
-red chrome - chassis, top cover, wide/narrow top front.

-blue chrome - top cover, wide/narrow top front(no chassis)

All of them look awesome, and all of them are very brittle.
