    Just found out there releasing original as well £50 difference in price .
    Get an original paint it blue and silver and save £50 for a sticker

    Could be done, but its not exactly the same, the silver parts are plated not painted and there are also some extra parts like window nets, number plates and dummy antenna.
    Of course everyone must decide for its own if this is worth the price difference.

    I do agree with you on that . And I might still get one if it turns out to be a limited edition .
    I made that comment as an alternative as they are releasing both versions at the same time.

    All fine, no worries. 🙂
    Since the Blockhead edition got a 58xxx number it won’t be a limited release, but of course if it doesn’t sell well (which we doubt) Tamiya might take it out of production after some time.
