Finally! We are getting a 1/18th Scale 84 Celica Supra! PREORDER AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Surprised this didn't get posted here yet...

http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/minicars-at-last-a-118-scale-a60-toyota-celica-supra/#comment-72135





So excited! I have already registered on the site and signed up for their news letter. The model is too early in pre-production to be listed on the site yet. I will definitely post here when it becomes available for order. So the bad, this is not a diecast, it will be made from resin so it will not have opening/closing hood/hatch/doors like the higher end diecasts do unfortunately. But beggars can't be choosers, I have already reserved a spot for this in my display cabinet.

Note the comments thread. I have already brought up the scale issues with the wheels, one of the designers picked up on my comment and its been addressed.

Edit, UPDATE April 27th, 2018: Its out !!!





These are in Preorder still! Available July 2018. You can preorder now though at a reduced rate. Would you like yours in...

are these models that can be modified and changed? would be cool to make a version of my own car. also would be rad if they had the option to have the early model non wrap around lights...but i also dont know how much of a pain that would be. i assume these cant be changed as having all these options would allow it to be both L and P type and the different fronts/fenders and hatches/wing

Its not a "kit" per-say. It will come like this...



So its essentially like a premade diecast, its just that they seem to prefer to do these in resin to keep costs down (though these are still 125 UK pounds). Sure you could modify it, but you would wreck the painted finish. If you want to customize something to look like your car exactly, I would recommend picking up one of the many 1/24th plastic model kits that are available. I could recommend a few, I think I have almost all of them. But a 1/18th scale mk2, that is a hole that has been in my collection for far too long!

Just sign up for the news letters or check their prelease club page from time to time. The mk2 hasn't shown up yet, but the mk4 and Starion are out now and very nice.

I know, 3 flaws. One, the wheel diameter is still too big, though much improved over the prototype. I can live with this, as personally I've always believed the cars should have come with 15s anyways. And 2, they gave the red one a Terra Cotta interior, which we all know is wrong for what is obviously an 1984 model. I have already left a review citing this and pleading our case to either A) just use the grey interior from the black car since it was an option, and is the more sought after interior, or B) change the tones to the correct Maroon\brown for that year. Last, the hatch sticker bubbles over the raised section for the lock. Don't they know you have to cut out the hole for the lock when you install a new hatch sticker just like on the real car? :laugh:

I'm ordering one in Black right now. My black 1:18th Autoart mk4 has a been holding a spot for this model for about 15 years now in my display case lol.
