Revell had early test shots of a couple of model kits, including the 62 Impala, but the Hemi Dart test shot was delayed. The Monogram name is back on many reissues. Apparently, the name has as much distinction as Revell

AMT (1:25 scale):
1961 Ford Galaxie 500 Styline Kit
Double Dragster in standard packaging
Munster Koach - original box with bonus figure
Dragula - original box with bonus figure
White Road Boss
Fruehauf Van Trailer
Ford C-900 Stake Bed
Myers Manx
Bugaboo
MPC (1:25scale):
Fire Truck
Fire Truck Special Edition - for Chuck Miller Builder of the Year - Detroit Autorama 2010
Zingers - all 8 originals (at least I believe there were, never a real fan of these but have seen some fun builds)
Zingers - Special Edition - all 8 - molded in new Metallic Flake-O-Delic Plastic. This Metal flake plastic actually looked pretty good. There was a sample on display
Road Runner & Beep Beep 'T'
Wile E. Coyote & Wile E. Willys
Road Runner & Rail Rider
Polar lights:
Batmobile (1/25 scale)
When I talked with the Round 2 folks at the show, I specifically thanked them for the Meyers Manx reissue. I indicated that the first release of the Testorís custom lacquers that had the more pronounced metal flake might be very useful for the Manx. The Round 2 gentleman then said he may do a special version of the Manx in the Metallic Flake-O-Delic Plastic

Primary news from Lindberg is:
Charger Police cars
Lil Red Wagon Racing team hauler
No Dodge Rampage pickup. It was cancelled. Both Lindberg and Moebius indicated that Chrysler had an official name change in the last week that is playing havoc with licensing.

Moebius confirmed the Hudson, Chrysler and International truck but indicated they would be late 2010 arrivals. All are to be 1:25 scale.

MRC was showing off the new Mitsubishi Lancer and Mercedes 630 SL. The Mitsubishi is supposed to have LH dash. Ed Sexton indicated that he is trying to Aoshima and Fujimi to release LH dask versions of kits that would be popular in the US. More work to do on that.

I just found that Hotwheels Viper last week, will be great to have it in 1/25 scale :sunglasse...thought now my standard Viper coupe will gather dust...rather boring by comparison:uhoh:

MRC's markup is crazy. They have to know most people would just buy it on the 'net direct from Japan for about half that.

Nice to see the revell s10 cyclone being rereleased along with the vw bus.

I think my christmas list is this so far:

Aoshima 630 sl
Revell VW Bus
Revell Cyclone
Aoshima evo

Also that viper and vette look cool. I wonder if the vette comes with the side strip decals?

http://www.showrods.com/showrod_pages/bugaboo.html The bugaboo is like a beetle funny car.
Shit!!!!!! Just noticed the Manx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The zingers are waaay before my time, but always liked them from their time on ebay.

Any word on the vw bus? Is it the new super cool tool from RAG?

With the ACR viper, I wouldn't halve really mind it as a snap kit.

It is the RoG version. As is the Ferrari California.
