Thank you for sharing pictures of Tamiya cars Doug, and for the super coverage of the Toy Fair, really appreciated.
The Bruiser 3-Speed will make many fans happy this year. Just out of curiosity, I had a look for the anticipated price, knowing it would be expensive, I didn't think it would be £750.00!
I have passed on some of Tamiya's re-releases of late, namely the Scorcher, Avante and now the Bruiser, since the cost for these models is to be expected, expensive. I just know I would never actually run them for fear of damage and justifing the outlay. Awesome models though and I think it is brilliant that Tamiya are reproducing their classic models. I live in hope that Tamiya re-release the Monster Beetle.
I have to admit that I am tempted to get Willy's VW Camper to go with his Jeep.
