Guesses and Wishes for Tamiya 2010 Releases

Like in the beginning of 2009 which products do you think Tamiya could release this year (static, RC, mini, anything) and which products would you personally like to be released (regardless of if their chances are realistic)?

Feel free to use the comments link at the end of this entry (comments are shown after being checked which can take some hours).

    -Sturmtiger 1:16 full option
    -T34 1:16 full option
    -Mk I tank (WWI) 1:16 full option
    -PBR 31 Mk II Piber 1:16 RC
    -CR01 with British Quad gun tractor body
    -New Body Unimog with soft top for CR01

  5. Black Hole Sun

    – SRB F-150 Ranger re-release
    – Monster Beetle re-release
    – The Falcon re-release
    – M-06 (RWD alternative to the M-05)
    – New Blackfoot generation (ie new chassis to replace the WR-01)

    My guess this won't ever happen
    – Blackfoot re-release: the BF lineage never ended since 58058. Makes no sense to re-re the 58058.
    – Avante re-release: they already did the mk2 thing on DF-03.

    Porsche 959 (I love to see 1/12 re-release or on Tamtech chassis)
    But 1/10 is good too, so I can run on my touring chassis.

  7. GreatDane

    Hey guys and a happy new year.

    For the most part I am with most of your guys when it comes to Lancias, Porsche, Audi and Fiat etc.

    But I would also like to see (or wish) a new european truck say a newer Mercedes or a MAN in 8×4 config.

    Add to that wish a electric 1/8 buggy from Tamiya.

    (Who would like to see Tamiya re-releasing the TGX 1/8 series in electric config? ME, me, me!)

    Must wait until the Toy Fair to see in which direction Tamiya is headed in 2010.

    Best Regards,

    GreatDane c'',)

    1/10 Fast Attack Vehicle
    1/10 Wild One
    1/10 Citroen C4 WRC 2009 DF03ra

    Anything is possible.

    Hello, all the best to you and a happy new year.
    My guess for a re-re are as follows:
    Ford F-150 on SRB chassis
    Celica Lombard Rally (the one before '94) on DF-03RA

    Tank like Pistenbully like Kyosho's Blizzard but with sound 2 Motors and gears and scale appearance.


    Hello Uwe, thank you, all the best to you too. If you mean the 90-94 Celica (5th generation / T180) it exists already on DF03Ra, but as a limited kit (92200).

  13. Ken

    my wish:

    1/18 challenger series (esp. VW buggy)
    1/32 "1st generation" mini 4WD (i.e. 19001-19005)
    1/10 RC Avante
    1/10 RC Fox
    1/10 RC Wild One / FAV
    1/10 RC Porsche 959 (original chassis or DF-03RA)
    1/20 RC Mammoth Dump Truck

    1/10 RC Willy's Wheeler (WR2 chassis, use smaller wheels)
    1/20 or 1/10 RC Brawn BGP001
    1/24 Hilux-style pickup
    1/24 Unimog
    Mammoth Dump Truck (similar size as 1/24 cars, but scale is "1/48"?)
    new 1/6 bikes or 1/12 big scale cars (have some new models, not keep on re-re again and again)
    1/8 RC bike…?


    Very interesting choices Ken 😎 , one little correction though, the original 959 body and chassis are 1:12, so for the DF03Ra a new body has to be made.

  15. Tortue G

    I hope more of FIA-GT / Le Mans race cars for R/C chassis:
    – 1/10 Corvette C6R GT1

    – 1/10 Audi R8 LMS GT3
    – 1/10 Nissan GT-R GT1 2010 specs
    – 1/10 Lamborghini Murcielago GT1

    – More LMP1 bodies for thee F103 GT, like Pescarolo, oreca, audi R15, etc…

  16. beermoker

    My guesses:
    – Blazing Blazer High-Lift

    – DF03RA Porsche 959
    – DF03RA Toyota Celica Gr.B
    – Cheetah rere

  20. Daniel

    Way back when Tamiya released a fully working dump truck. I would love to see that return and perhaps a whole line of construction r/c would be awesome.

    Would also be fun to see some more radical r/c designs. I love to own any of these:

    1/10 True Sandrail chassis.
    1/10 Ariel Atom
    1/10 Caterham
    1/8 4WD Electric Buggy
    Military APC or IFV type vehicles. Not Hummers or jeep type vehicles but things like Russian BTRs or the American Stryker.

    I am still waiting for the Astute re issue but having read some of your comments/suggestions there are a few good ones there i'd love to see, namely

    Holiday Buggy/Sand Rover
    Monster Beetle
    Porsche 959
    Super Champ
    Renault 5 Turbo would be fantastic on the M05!
    Fingers crossed hey, come on Mr T!d a

  22. Coligny

    Ok, so me again… I'm ashamed not to have added like surprinsigly so many other did:

    M06 Chassis:
    Renault 5 Turbo Ragnotti Andrie Tour de Corse
    Alpine Renault 310 Calberson with Fleishmann widebody kit or the 82 Pack GT.


    on M05
    Renault Twingo GT/Rally/Gordini
    Renault Clio R3
    Renault Dacia Logan Cup
    Renault 12 Gordini

    on M06
    Renault 8 Gordini Cup
    Renault Megane Trophy 2005 or 2010 (on M06)

    AND MOST OF ALL, the return of full size 1/10 chassis designed exclusively as RWD or FWD. Yes the TT01/DF03/TA05 are bullet proof and nearly idiot proof. but sometimes a little more subtlety in the driving spec would be good.

    (But the last RC Alpine 310 was a Kyosho, so no big hopes there. As for the UR Quattro, looooong ago it was a Tamiya hardbody, but up until now it's also a lexan kit from Carlson Germany sold RTR or kit on TT01 chassis so it in fact already exist…)


    @Coligny: The old Tamiya Quattro was a lexan body like also the same chassied Ascona (just the front and rear ends where plastic parts for more detail), the Lancia 037 was a hard body.

    Guess Tamiya also don't know or just ignore the Carson "creations" as they now simply "overwrite" the 584xx numbers which Carson had used for them with their own new models (like Carson Audi Quattro GR4 had number 58448 which now is used by Tamiya Corolla Axio GT), I am glad they do πŸ™‚

  27. GreatDane


    You forgot the Tamiya 1/12 big scale cars….

    No wishes in this category that are not re-re? πŸ˜‰

    Best Regards,

    GreatDabe c'',)

  28. Eric

    A new 1/12th kit from Tamiya ?? It would be more than a dream πŸ˜‰
    So a 1/12 McLaren Mercedes MP4/23 2008 World Champion will be perfect !!

  29. GreatDane


    You are right, it would be more than a dream….;-)

    But nothing wrong in wishing a new big scale car release from Tamiya and the McLaren suits me just fine πŸ˜‰

  35. P

    I would really like a modern battle tank like a Russian t-90 or 72 to join the rc battle force.

    Basically I would welcome anything modern.But the Abrams looks so clean and slick from the outside. The T 90 has a lot of kit bolted to the outside giving a lot of nice details to a model.

  36. Hobby Papillon

    Hey there,

    We as European rc truckers would like to see an new tractor truck 1/14. But I believe our hopes will be filled today at Nurnberg !!

  40. Tom E

    The MONSTER BEETLE is what I want but Im tired of waiting for the re-release..and Im not the only one who has been waiting for it and expected it for a long time now.. Im almost mad because Tamiya is so quiet, They could at least tell us if they plan on rereleasing it or not..3-4years is a long time to wait, and, yes it actually makes me pissed off that Tamiya continues to toriure me like that. SO TAMIYA, RE-RELEASE THE MONSTER BEETLE OR PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!!!

  41. Ruan M

    MONSTER BEETLE, pretty please? Had one when I was younger, and stupidly swopped it for a car radio amplifier (!) when I got my first car …. which got stolen a week later.

  42. Sambo

    Well, actually i’d like to see the following re-release’s from Tamiya,
    Super Astute
    Avante 2001
    I know i’d buy 2 of each!!

  43. steve carr

    Monster Beetle with updated drive shafts (the hex ones lasted 30sec on mine 20yrs ago πŸ™ )
    Fox (but update the front outer suspension balls)
