About fell out of my chair when scrolling thru the 2020 Tamiya kit releases from the Nuremberg toy fair. I think they may only be releasing the XX in Japan and the LBGP car in the US. The XX looks like it comes out late March in Japan. I believe these is first time these have been reissued since they were new?

I'll have to look and see if I have these. I've been looking since I joined the forum and bought my '85, and I could only find four different kits, one of them motorized. I'm pretty sure I have the LBGT car, but not sure about the XX.

FYI these are both out now in the US. I got my case this morning;

82/83 USDM car


The XX


Only difference from original was they pulled the little scooter out probably because of licensing issues. My guess they probably took off the tire lettering as well. Hopefully round 2 brings back the MPC kit. They've been reissuing some of the other late 70s/80s cars again.

Sweet! They probably released them this year as its the 50th anniversary of the Celica. I was gonna come down for JCCS this year as they are also celebrating it, but unlikely it will work out with the epidemic.
