  1. Same here. I just got the Black Avante. I wouldn't mind waiting for the Black Egress for a bit longer, so I can spread out the expense.
  2. Oh totally agree. Tower's prices are usually the best after you factor in discount coupons. Reward points are a nice bonus as well. Customer service takes care of any issues. They even acknowledged a mistake with birthday reward points and sent me a $10 gift certification to use recently. My only gripe is with their kit availability date which always seem a little optimistic. So it's kind of a nice surprise whenever I receive an unexpected shipment notification, like this time. Not so much on the credit card charge though, LoL!
  3. Wow, didn't expect this. Tower actually came through this time!
  4. Thanks for the heads up! Added to the list of kits that I have on back-order with Tower.
  5. Yeah, unfortunately Tower is always too optimistic with their availability dates. I guess I've missed the pre-order period, if there ever was one? No indication of when one could pre-order the black Egress either. I wish Tower could do a better job communicating.
  6. Thanks for sharing, that's a nice setup! I have a small collection of Snap-on, Koken, a few German brands, and Toptul from Taiwan as well. Though I don't work on 1:1 cars as much anymore, I still keep adding tools to the collection. More than I could ever use.
  7. I couldn't resist and pre-ordered one. Going to look great side by side with the black edition... when I get around to build them, probably in 2030 or so. LoL. Hoping we don't have to wait that long to get it from Tower though!
  8. Sorry to hijack the thread... curious about the Beta tool cart and the tools on it.
  9. I hope this is the actual box art.
  10. Sorry to hear that. Nothing aggravates me more than a damage kit box. This is something that could have been avoided. Unfortunately large retail outlets like Tower/Horizon cannot handle special packaging requests. Every kit that I’ve ever received from Tower were only padded on one or two sides.
  11. Finally received mine from Horizon/Tower. It was backordered since May last year, LoL. I wasn't sure if I was ever gonna receive it. Stumbled across Horizon's eBay listing. And I saw it was available on the Tower website as well, so I knew they had received a shipment. Sold out quickly.
  12. @JamesM3081 Thanks for the info! I just checked and did get a shipment notification!
  13. Looks like my order placed on 8/6 from TH didn't make the cut either. I did get my Wild One BH, so I'm happy.
  14. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I personally don't think the Frog looks that good, however it is special for me. Back in the days, on the track, 9 out of 10 were Frogs. It was the buggy that I dreamed of having (didn't have the money for RC). Had to wait 30 years, and now I have 3. A re-release runner, a NIB original early version 5841, and another original that is partially built, with some cool You-G options, waiting to become a tricked-out shelf queen.
  15. Good deal! I ordered on the same date. Haven’t seen any notification from Tower yet. Nothing on FedEx either. Fingers crossed!
