  1. I believe this statement to be true in my case. I too did not have the same feeling with the re-releases. I blamed the lack of blister packaging , different stickers and in some cases body tweaks. So to capture the original feeling for every re-release that I own I would hunt down as many original pieces as possible before building. 1. Original stickers. ( not repos) 2. some cases original bodies. ( blackfoot, scorcher, MB etc) 3. Original MSC ( both black and brown) 4. Drivetrain pieces to be original. And many other little bits and pieces. But all in all I could not get the same feeling as my original cars and I believe its because I am not the person as I was in the 80s. I tried to get that feeling but it just was not the same. I even went as far as hunting down original boxes as that is the only thing left to swap out for that original feeling in my mind. But just is not the same and i have spent a lot of money chasing this. So my next approach was to slowly hunt down original nib kits and sell off my re-re's. The original nib kits did help with that feeling, But now the feeling of spending so much money is there in its place as guilt.
  2. I have the TFE on pre order. My hopes are for blisters and for the box to say Evolution instead of the abbreviated EVO. After taking some time to hunt down new original wheels, tires and stickers(decals) as well buying a top force and carbon fiber chassis, damper set, I appreciate this release. I wonder if Tamiya will have titanium screws as a hop up as they did with the Avante. If they do I will buy that as well.
