The way FG is there is no telling..... It is simply a dresed up Marder and I see no need for them to hype a new shell like it is a totally new buggy. I like it, and I am awaiting the release of the Jeep body, but it just bothers me how they advertise it as a new vehicle.

There has been no release date available for the baja yet. The hummer MT will be the first of the new editions out followed by the jeep.

August sounds right. The others will be available early since the body is the only thing they need to make. As for Baja, the wheels are totally different and since they have already printed the addition to the catalogue I doubt there will be changes to it.

I love the body and the more I look at the pics I think the roll bar assembly stays connected to the chassis and the body is 2 halves. That's the only way I can see it mounting together. Plus the figure looks like it's cut in half.

Just my thoughts, and this will be the body I will have for sure. Much nicer than the Marder and should be much cheaper $$$

Not too sure it will be any cheaper at all. It is genuine FG and we all know they ask top $$

I think the body will be/should be cheaper/ Not much plastic in it. As for the car itself, maybe just a bit more that a marder to make up for the body/wheel changes.
