New production run of Monsters and Overlands for the holidays?

Hi,

I noticed that retailer stock of Mini-Z Monsters and Overlands is very scarce. Will they be available in greater numbers for the holidays?

Thanks!

Did I ask the wrong question, or in the wrong forum? I assumed that a Kyosho rep would peruse this subforum to answer questions.

Thank you for your response, Tim. I suppose I should have worded my question a bit differently. Will there be more models to choose from, other than just those three, in the coming weeks?

And, as per my original question, what about Monster availability?

Hmmm, well, I was hesitant to ask this next question, as I did not want to put you on the spot, but the curiosity is killing me...

Can you expound on what you mean by "something new"? New Overland/Monster releases with new bodies, or a total redesign of the chassis/drivetrain?

I just bought a Land Cruiser Overland from somebody and have looked at all of the previously-released bodies, and wish I had "discovered" this series sooner. To be honest, I am not crazy about the models that are available now.

Any info would be appreciated.

I can't say anything exact, but I can say there are new bodied Overlands, and Monsters coming soon. Nothing really for a chassis redesign. As soon as I am given the green light I will post what is coming in the "Whats New" thread.

Any chance these new Overland's Monsters will join the 2.4 family? How about some AWD versions of theme?

suhweet! i was thinking about overlands the other day, how theyre hardly available anymore. hopefully a landrover pops up somewhere along the line... an lr3 in full g4 livery would be pretty nice
cant wait to see whatever comes tho, im sure they'll all be pretty nice!
