Update to new 1/18s and slot car set coming

We got a few new items scheduled to come out before the end of the year.  And I can't wait to get my hands on them.

First is a re-release of the Rosco's Patrol Car.  The first thing you should notice is the light bar looks nearly correct.  Not perfect.  But so much better than the last release.  This one will be put out by Tomy under the  Johnny Lightning line.  I heard there will also be a White Lightning version.  Great!  Now I gotta find one of those suckers.  It is scheduled to be released in mid October.

November sees a re-release of the 00 Mustang from the reunion movie.  Original versions of this car are becoming quite rare and demanding high prices on eBay.  This one will be updated and more detailed.  Also coming from Johnny Lightning so a White Lightning version is possible.  

And  hoping for a December release is a new car to the Dukes 1/18 line.  We haven't had a Cooter's Camaro in 1/18 before.  This is a pre-production sample picture, and the final product isn't done yet.  I can't wait for this one.  So far it is looking great.  Ben is going to love this one.  Another JL release so I expect a White Lightning version as well.  

We also get a new slot car set in December.  I really like the new artwork on the box.  It will be made by Auto World who made the newest highly detailed 1/18 General Lee and the other two newer slot car sets. 

With these new items coming out, all the new items already released this year, the many events, and the news worthy happenings of 2012, not to mention this blog coming into exsistence, this has been a banner year for The Dukes of Hazzard!

  1. That light bar looks sooo much better! I can't wait to get one of those suckers! My fiance' got me the newer 1/18th with the orange cover over the flag for our anniversary and the wheels and interior are leaps and bounds better than the original. Thanks for posting those cool pre-po shots!
