We are still seeing only reissues, but in many cases these have been adjusted or damaged or missing molds repaired/replaced. I wonder when they might get to brand new molds. Here’s what I saw:

1951 Chevy Fleetline (tin packaging)
1965 Chevelle Wagon – older box art
1966 Mustang – older box art
AMC Gremlin - stock. Coming in Original art series. It will be in a larger box that carries a picture of the original art that can be framed.
AMT Amtronic– original box art and supposedly the glass is corrected to right color
Arnie Beswick '69 Super Judge GTO Funny Car – older box art
Barnabas Vampire Van – They just got the sample done in time for the show
Chevy 100th Anniversary '57 Chevy Bel Air (newer tool) with photo-etched parts and engine wire (tin packaging) – previous pro-series newer mold in tin package
Dirty Donny "Vantasy" Chevy Van
Ford Vantom Van
Ghostbusters’ Ecto 1
Hot Curl – Hot Shout, Gurl and Hot Curl
Meyers Manx – Should be out late December/early January. Nostalgic box art and hamburger stand cardboard piece is included.
Petty 1/16 Nascar Charger – This was at last year’s show as well, but looks like it is getting closer
White Western Star

I didn’t see the slot car variations of previous plastic kits that were announced earlier, but I could have passed them up. Some neat die cast was also on display as well as their Star Trek series (I didn’t take any shots of those)

Are those Manx's supposed to come molded in funky cool sparkle finishes? Can't wait to get a bunch of them!

Only special Manx's. The red one is one per case no way to tell as part of a promo. The purple ones will be availble from Round2

Its about time that an american company started to make tires (slicks). Now we need some wheels to go along with them.
