Any release date for the metallic dump truck?  I don't normally buy the {whatever color} specials, but I feel a strong pull to this one...

I expect it will be a chrome body and wheels and black chassis parts ala every other metallic (sans brat).

Would be funky with a chrome chassis but would cost a bit to plate it all.

wouldn't it have been better in gold metallic like the lunchbox was? Seeing as that model was originally yellow.....would be more fitting as gold metallic?

I'm torn on this. Part of me thinks it looks very cool. The other is just 'why?'

Hopefully that silver detailing on the bucket is all stickers, so skippable

This one has been on my wish list since the first information about it got available, and after seeing it for the first time today, it still is, but I will definitely not use most of the stickers. I have the normal yellow version and appreciate that Tamiya has done a bit more than just changing the colour to make this one different, but I don't like the "chain and diamond plate" theme.

Looks very metal - in both senses of the word.

It needs red leds and a smoke generator.  B)

The wheels would be a nice change for anyone owning the yellow verion.

Agreed, although I swapped mine out for an aluminum set.... I jus with I could find these dang things in BLACK, not black chrome

I don't care what anyone else thinks, I totally LOVE it!

...and I never thought I'd say that about a dump truck...

I was never really interested in dump truck, but this one is sweet! It's just asking to be "Mad Max"-ed ;)
