NOOOOO WAY! :o:( This list is one of the most interesting release lists I've seen yet! :) The Bronco is an amazing car, lovely to see Tamiya still releases some old models every now and then... Finally again a new DTM car!!! The F104, the M05, both new chassis' that will be on the market pretty spoon then (probably)! A to me unknown but now I've looked it up on Google interesting Subaru release, an awaited Mitsubishi release (and what a choice for a release they made) - and then to top it off the Black Porsche 934! Awesome!!!!

Still no proper monster trucks tho :)

Don't you consider the Clod as a proper Monster Truck? Ok - it's design hasn't really changed or improved (as far as I know) since it's first release - it will never outperform a Traxxas E-Maxx or HPI E-Savage - but if you'll ask someone to describe the looks of an RC Monster Truck or to draw it you'll end up with a description or drawing of a Clod. Because of that I'd consider the Clod to be the roots of the Monster Truck and the ultimate RC Monster Truck :(

Interesting that there are so many XB models; they must be finding that market profitable.

Bummer that there aren't some ralleye models or buggies though. :(

Kinda want to see the M-05r and you can't go wrong with the bronco.

Wasn't just recently an original black porsche went for almost $8K on ebay? It would be funny/sad if Tamiya re-release of the porsche is identical to the original or say 95% same. I know to die hard collectors with deep pockets would not matter knowing they have the original from that time period is the key. I like Tamiya stuff but I would be upset after paying $8K for it and find out later in a few months I could pick one up (though not identical) for a few hundred bucks. But hey, I wouldn't pay $8K for a Tamiya Black Porsche from a collectors point, but if I know someone would pay more than $8K than is a different story.

Good point, could be just a straight out black version of the 30th 934 kit, that would be nice :D

If that was the case, the only difference would be the decals and the recommended paint!

It's probably gonna be a black version of the Tamtech. That had a hard plastic shell right?

Only the tail end of the Tamtech Porsche was hard, the main body was lexan, still anything is possible :D

As Willy says, Tamiya already do black alloy special event parts for the TA05, so they could easily do a parts bin special with that,

and I think it would be more from the fact that it would come in a fancy black box as a limited edition rather than it being an all out new kit.....

ahhh the possibilites...... B)

And a different scale B) Would still be very nice though! Actually, I think I'd prefer 1/10 too!

Oh I would be all over a black anodised edition of the 30th Anniversary Porsche 934...

The 30th Anniversary version is 1/10. The reissue black porsche is 1/12. So it should be the GT01 version.

Shame. A 30th black Porsche with all-black alloy parts would even have had me paying collectors prices! B)

Maybe the Black Porsche 934 will come with some goodies/hop-ups? or would it be a limited release?

Thats not quite what i meant! i mean than there is no real proper 1/10th scale 2wd Blackfoot type of monster truck. Ok the B.F extreme is the only 2wd monster truck available from big T but i doubt it could take the abuse that i used to dish out to my king blackfoot!

I completely agree with you on the clod though.

Indeed a shame it's 1/12th scale... Unless it's the original chassis and hard plastic body! B)

1/12th scale

I hope it doesn't have the original chassis - technology has moved on quite a bit since then. Hard shell would be wonderful though.
