Any guess on re-re 2019?

Another run of the fire dragon wouldn't hurt!

In addition to re-releasing the classics that haven't yet been re-released, I wish Tamiya would continue with the "white-box" animal-themed cars......

So many animals not covered yet....Coyote.....Wolf.....Panther.....Eagle....the list goes on...

BUT....they must have their own logos....like Hornet...or Fox......etc....

It could be done Tamiya.....

I would definitely grab a Thunder Dragon, that's one sexy triangle.

I'd love a King Cab too.

Well let's hope it is the same 80s design (lancia rally and Opel ascona) all 3 looked bizarre even back then........but just so good👍

I really hope so too. If they do, could the original Wild Willy be far behind? On the other hand I could honestly see Tamiya:  A. make a more realistic version like the current Lancia Rally or B. put it on a Wild Willy 2 chassis like the Willy's Wheeler/Honda City, albeit with a possible lengthened wheelbase. B.seems likely to me as the original Audi and the Opel bodies always seemed a bit more distorted to me than the original Lancia which just had enlarged wheelwells,

Ah, I hope the Audi looks more scale than the original they released. The high lift and huge wheel arches don't do much for me.

Perhaps Tamiya can re-jig the Ascona 400 body to fit a 257mm chassis. It was always way too short between the B and C pillars. Just looked SO wrong!

Yeah it looked so wrong but that's what I really liked about it!👍😄

Hate to rain on your parade... but it won’t be on the original chassis.

it will be on the TA02 S just like the Lancia 037

The Turbo Optima is looking nice, wish it was the Mid though.

Sadly the Quattro, at least for me looks really odd. Roof looks squashed, and not much thought to the wheel pattern choice.

Wrong part of the forum but what the hey.
I am a bit miffed that Kyosho hasn't re-re'd the Ultima yet.
I was hoping they'd do it this year.

I was hoping 2017, to mark the 30th of Joel Johnson!

Very pleased to see the Turbo Optima! An Ultima would be interesting too, but actually I am excited about the news on the Turbo Optima!

If nothing else, wheels and screw threaded gold shocks availability 😀

Would love to see another run of the Thundershot! I got back into this a few years too late. That car has really grown on me. A cool piece of Tamiya goodness.

Are you talking about the photo of the actual 1:1 above?

No the model itself. I've since seen other images that look a lot better. Would have loved the original release mind you.

The Audi are a TT02 under the hood. They can be pre-ordered at Tonys Tamiya Parts on FB.

Yes I noticed that. A shame we can't get the original re-released with improvements. The Opel Ascona as well....even though the body was a bit stubby. 

Plus I would love the Lancia Rally to be re-released on the ORV chassis.....easy to do!!!

We all know this is all guesswork, but I believe with the announcement of the Turbo Optima we may see Tamiya release something at the higher levels of nostalgia and legend, Top Force Evo or 959 ?
