    I would live too see the Vanquish & Terra Scorcher, and Hotshot 2. I see the Boomerang is coming back! Looks like I know what my next Tamiya purchase will be! The Astute or Super Astute would be cool too!

    Mini 4wd
    -Super FM chasis revision like super 1 become super 2 , can we call it super FM 2 may be…..
    – Premium Brocken Gigant with new version of super FM chasis
    – Neo Burning sun premium, Crimson Glory Premium


    a BigWig in a new colorway, including chromed pipes and roll cage and e.g. aluminum made or at least black instead of blue damper stays, to make it less toyish – ’cause toys they are not – would be great.


    Tamiya does so many great scale model kits.
    How about a RC Schwimmwagen or Kübelwagen with a bunch of Hippie kids in it?
    An amphibious ARGO 8×8 would be fun!

    A new hard body truck using the Bruiser chassis would be great. The world needs more Tamiya 3 speed.

    More European GT and Prototype cars from the World Endurance Championship, such as the Aston Martin GTE that just won at Le Mans, great looking car.

    Would be great to have a 35th Anniversary re-issue of old Racing Mini 4WD with their original Type- chassis, as happened for the 15th and 25th Anniversaries. Would really bring back many happy childhood memories 🙂

    Acura NSX GT3 either IMSA MSR version or PWC RTR version!! Already have the street car, how about the GT3 race version!

    I’m pretty sure Tamiya will make a 1:10 Yaris WRC. In the past, Tamiya have already produced Toyota Rally Cars, being the Celica GT4 and the Corolla WRC, so the relationship is already there. In terms of Gazoo Racing, Tamiya have already made a Gazoo TRD 86 in 1:10. Tamiya has even made Makinen 1:10’s when he was at Mitsubishi and Subaru. Looking quickly at the Yaris WRC, the main sponsor is Mircosoft, so they might be trying to work a deal with them. Hopefully they can collaberate. Imagine that, a Tamiya Microsoft XBox bundle, which could include an Xbox with WRC7 and a Tamiya 1:10 Yaris WRC RC, so all the kids and the adult kids are covered for any weather type. What I would love to see is Tamiya to produce a 1:10 Yaris from Rally Finland where Toyota came so close to clinching a 1-2-3… If they can make the stickers for cars #10, #11 and #12. I will buy 3 cars and keep them as models. Goodluck Tamiya, give the people what they want.
