Yes. I think so as well. Nice to add some other options to that platform.

Front bumper looks pretty gnarly. Could it be a larger scale crawler?

The wheelwell looks pretty high up... but the lights are slanted...

Would love a m606 body for these as those things are iconic. A Bronco too maybe?

4x4s are scaled pretty weird though. You'd think the Jiminy would be a smaller body but it is huge and on the longer chassis. Assuming a jeep would likely use the boxy 120mm chassis as well.

There appears to be a Defender D90 and MB G-class (white bodies) available on that auction site. The listing states that they fit kyosho mini z 4x4 chassis, lists 120mm wheelbase.
I presume they're not kyosho brand, but they look pretty good if you're wanting something different.

Based on the light and hood profile, looks like a 4 door Wrangler Rubicon. Larger scale or Mini-Z 4x4 is the question. given the prior reveal for Mini-Z 4x4 was same, is likely for that.
It would be a no brainer to release a Jeep since they had license with Monster chassis. Bit disappointed it's not something a bit more in the moment like the Bronco though. Jeeps are the new soccer mom/suburban SUV which has diluted the branding lifestyle IMHO.

The Defender and Merc truck bodies were seen first on HRC and come out of China so who knows the true author is? the Defender 90 is a nice looking body though.
