After recently listing my Turbo Optima, the seventh release in the 'Legendary Series' from Kyosho, I realised that I had somehow forgot to list this kit, the Javelin, which was the sixth release. I bought this immediately on release in October 2017 but somehow didn't get round to listing it here in my showroom. Anyway, here it is, better late than never. :-)

This was another awesome re-release from Kyosho, with more stunning artwork & presentation. And, in addition, they issued spare rollcages in all new colours so I just had to get one in white. Now that the Turbo Optima has been released with the classic Option House gold chassis parts I really need to get the black Javelin rollcage too so that I can swap it onto the Turbo Optima chassis from time to time.

Yet another awesome Kyosho re-release. Fantastic box-art once again. Exquisite blister packing. Chain & belt options offered. Can't argue with that... Plenty of metal... ..and a fair bit of plastic too. Really lovely wheels. All new tyres aren't bad either. Extensive decals + thick manual Standard orange cage is very sweet.. ..but just as nice in white. Black wheels really make the white cage pop!




Brillant kit. Never been a huge fan of the Javelin, until I saw the cages in other colors. I built mine with the yellow cage and love it.



Agree Klausen. The black cage will look awesome matched up with the gold chassis parts.



Beautiful kit! I was never a fan of Kyosho as a kid but as an adult can really appreciate some of their legends like the Javelin and LOVE the fact that there are different chassis color options.
