According to Aoshima's Japanese blog, they're going to make two additional announcements about all-new kits.
One of which is already discussed here:

The other is this car:

It will be great if finally the ST165 Celica is again available in a racing version, and at much lower price that Studio27TK :iceslolan

From Spain we have join efforts in several forums to ask for TK reedition to Studio27, without result.

Maybe will be time for Aoshima revenge :evillol:

Another great release from Aoshima. I need to get this kit to complete my collection of modern Celica rally cars (ST165, 185 and 205) :iceslolan

It looks like a curbside kit without an engine. Oh well. No biggie. I still want one.

Well, the ST165 uses an earlier version of the 3S-GTE so there is always the possibilty of kit-bashing one with the Tamiya GT-Four kit.

Kit-bashing, remember when the forums were full of that sort of thing?

Do you mention Australia because of the reference pic above or because it's the version planned by Aoshima ?
It's nice to get an Australian rally car instead of the usual MonteCarlo ones but in this case the 91 MC version is really interesting !! :naughty:
So not to sell back too fast the S27 TK !! :lol:

Oh man! Isn't that always the way? I've just finished working out what bashing I needed to do to Tamiya's ST185 chassis' to make it fit under their ST165 road car body. I know the road car body isn't EXACTLY accurate for the rally car, but at least it's a damn sight cheaper & easier to find than ST27 TK.

Excellent, great to see new rally cars coming on the market. When is the release date scheduled?

Luis Pacheco

Late November release....
In the meantime I need photos of the other teams to run the ST165

If I can get enough photos, there is the possibility of lots of decal variations
