  1. Same goes for me.......well, I do have Hub Hobby local too, so, I divvy up the purchases also.
  2. Tower will be shipping these starting today if you pre/back--ordered (cards are being charged as of this morning).
  3. Gotta admit that MAP cost at $404.xx is too funny, but it does align with the usual 30% off Tamiya USA MSRP (but, yes, it does seem low since the re-re Egress had a much higher MSRP than this “Black Edition”…….hmmmmm). I suppose I have had good luck the last few years since typically pre-order just a bit after they go live (8 for 8 so far at least on receiving the initial shipments including the 45th Porsche, Optima Mid, etc), although I have heard of some early pre-orders also never getting fulfilled. Time will tell with Tower per the norm, though.
  4. Pre-order up at Tower Hobbies for fellow North American’s… https://www.towerhobbies.com/product/110-rc-egress-black-edition-kit/TAM47489.html ….add that $80 Super Saver Club coupon discount if a member and not bad at all!
  5. Yes...happened yesterday, I think. Most of Tamiya USA’s MSRPs jumped up about 10% during their latest site maintenance and so did Tower’s MAP (Minimum advertised pricing,...which is usually 30% off Tamiya MSRP depending on product). Updated pricing as of 7/6: https://www.tamiyausa.com/media/files/map-july-2022-1239-01be.pdf https://www.tamiyausa.com/map-policy/
  6. Charges going through from Tower Hobbies, so, shipping from there soon also (always see the credit card charged first, then ships same day or next at the latest) .
  7. It's been available for pre-order for a few hours now at AMain for the US peeps: https://www.amainhobbies.com/schumacher-cougar-classic-1-10-2wd-buggy-kit-schk194/p1425794
  8. If it's a re-re like they did in 2005, it's a Group C chassis: Original: https://tamiyabase.com/tamiya-models/58088 Re-re: https://tamiyabase.com/tamiya-models/58351
  9. Hub has it (at the time of this post) at MSRP if interested: https://www.hubhobby.com/110-porsche-934-coupe-vaillant-1976-45th-anniversa.html
  10. Finally got my shipping email from Tower itself 15 min ago.........has left IL already and on it's way. Could take them a day or more to process/ship all orders (mine was ordered 8/6).
  11. Confirmed as I just got FedEx info for Wednesday delivery of the Blockhead (IL to MN).
  12. Pending charge on my Visa just this morning for my Blockhead from Tower Hobbies. Does not say shipping just yet, but this is how it works for kits from them in the past for me....should ship today or tomorrow. It's happening!
  13. In stock NOW at Hub Hobby in MN, USA. Currently they have 3 of the 4 they had gotten in. MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) is different this time as only 20% off Tamiya's listed price, though. https://www.hubhobby.com/tamiya-58696-110-super-avante-off-road-buggy-td4-c.html Just sharing the info if someone really wants one now....I can vouch for my local hobby shop as they are top notch.
  14. It's called MAP (minimum advertised price)........hobby stores in the US typically sell for MAP. Which in the case of the Egress would be around $575 or so and, depending on your relationship with your local shop, can be even lower. My local shop I can just walk in and as long as it's on Tamiya USA's site in stock, they can order it and it shows up in a week or so/whenever they put in their next bulk Tamiya order. Tower typically does not do restocks of the higher $$ re-re's these past few years it seems most of the time.
