Hmm...
I really didn't intend to get this car or this fast at least...

I was notified that Tamiya Korea received their 1st batch (very limited numbers) of
Wild One 'Blockhead Motors' edition so I went out to get it,
but the store manager (we're quite close) informed me that they got this Porsche,
but in extremely limited quantities.
So here I am with 47477 Porsche 934 Coupe Vaillant (1976)
45th Anniversary Commemorative Edition instead... Totally not intended...
Well, I was going to get this probably sometime later when TK gets the next batch or even later.
I really wanted to build the Wild One Blockhead Motors Edition...

Got the call from the manager pretty late and went to the store arount 8pm,
so I look bad, so please excuse my appearance...
Just wanted to take a picture somehow holding a Tamiya kit to look back maybe after some years...;)
I have no idea when I'm going to build this car as I already have a
nice working smaller Tamtech (GT-01) version to play with.
I guess I made the right choice last night buds? :)

I will definitely get the Wild One Blockhead Motores Edition in near future.

Lovely kit, just praying the Aus Distributor got enough to fulfil mine from my LHS, along with a BH Wild One.

Nice one Ben!! Yeah buddy, you made the right choice! I'm saying that as someone who is about to start the build on his Wild One BHM as you know. But if I had to choose I'd get the Porsche first just as they are going to be so limited. You're lucky to get one. I could be wrong, but I don't think we're getting any in the UK this year now. It was going to be my Christmas present to myself but my pre-order got cancelled!! Maybe next year! You can get the Wild One BHM next month!!!

Congrats on grabbing one of those kits! I have the 934 Black version but the body livery on this one is much better. I am a little jealous that you have access to hobby shop that has that many kits in stock on the shelves! American hobby shops are typically stocked with TRAXXAS and very few (if any) Tamiya kits….Ugh.

Top car. You will look back to this day with a big smile! These are very limited. France and Belgium didnt recieve half of what they ordered for example.

Thank you for the encouragement Phil!! Yes I know you will be building your BHM Wild One, I'm very excited for you. I should get a copy before it's too late here... Seems like everyone is getting one these days...

'Aut0bahn' Thank you so much for your comments bud~ Yes, Seoul has 4 big Tamiya stores directly run by themselves. Seems like my Porsche was the last copy, their website shows as sold out already... I guess I made a good choice the other night. And the car you're asking is not a HYUNDAI Veloster, it's a i20 WRC limited release for Korean market. I'm not saying yes just yet, but if you're seriously interested, please email me via TC here. Thank you again. Ben

James... Thank you bud! Well, I don't know why but maybe since I already have a smaller version of this Porsche 934 in Tamtech series, my excitement was quite gentle, but fact it is a special anniversary kit in extremely limited run, yes I'm happy I made the call on the other night. I have a good Tamtech runner so I probably won't be building this soon though.

'koenc' Oh no... that's not good. Well, seems like all you guys are insuring me that I did make a good choice I'm glad.

In most parts of the world the first batch of the BHM Wild One seems to be very limited due to various issues, but as it's a 58 number release you'd think there will eventually be plenty of them around? If you want the first batch though you may want to move quick. Deliveries seems to be all over the place right now! The second batch isn't due into the UK until April/May 2022 for example. Of course Tamiya Korea may get plenty? With 4 stores in Seoul you're very lucky. With that much choice we may have to start ordering our kits through you Ben

Hi Phil~ Yes, we seem to have some good Tamiya stores in Seoul, Korea. (Not out in the country side) Well, anything for you bud. If you need some help from here, just let me know.

Hi Ben, thanks for that offer. Much appreciated ated
Can you believe that I've also just got this Porsche kit today! I had my pre-order cancelled and was told that none were coming to the uk this year. Well I'd since found out that some did make it to the UK, and I managed to pick one up. They sold out in minutes. Very lucky indeed! I never thought I'd be able to get one. Such a special kit!
