Review of Tamiya 58702 Subaru BRZ ZD8 TT-02

Sometimes simple is better and when it comes to a fun on-road kit to build up, Tamiya is a great company to turn to. We managed to get an early release of the new Tamiya Subaru BRZ ZD8 TT-02 Kit. The TT-02 chassis itself is not new. It’s been around for a while and has proven to be a fun build model that performs really well for it’s simple design and suspension set-up. We actually recommend the TT-02 a lot for those looking for a kit to build. Luckily there are a number of body options for TT-02 kits and here’s one more with the BRZ body. This video is a quick look at this car and how much fun it is to drive stock out of the box.

Cancellation of the Nuremberg Toy Fair Spielwarenmesse 2022

For the second year in a row it is cancelled due to the pandemic situation, we were really looking forward to it as we love being there, meeting our favourite brand and the people behind, reporting live and revealing the new releases from there, but we will stay patient and hoping for a better situation again in the near future.

Here is the official statement of the fair:

Cancellation of the physical Spielwarenmesse 2022

The toy industry has been looking forward to the world’s leading event for the sector at the beginning of February. The rapid growth of the Omicron variant in recent days, however, and the resultant increasing number of cancellations to stands, has left the organiser, Spielwarenmesse eG, with no alternative – with a heavy heart it has to cancel Spielwarenmesse 2022 in Nuremberg. As an alternative, exhibitors, specialist retailers and media representatives can meet up on the Spielwarenmesse Digital platform.

“We have fought hard to be able to hold the live event and we received strong support initially from toy markets worldwide,” says Christian Ulrich, Spokesperson of the Executive Board at Spielwarenmesse eG. A large number of suppliers without international distribution networks appealed to the organisers even in December to continue with the fair, which is so important to international business.

In the last few days, conditions have been deteriorating. Due to the rapid growth of the Omicron variant, the situation with the pandemic is now markedly different. In response to this a large number of exhibitors, out of concern for the health of their teams, cancelled their stands. The Spielwarenmesse, the leading global industry event, thus no longer looked capable of providing its customary broad overview of the international toy market. A further complication was that it was no longer possible to plan ahead with any certainty because it was possible at any time that the event could be cancelled by the authorities.

“We regret having to make this decision and are grateful to everyone who remained committed to a physical trade fair to the very end,” commented Christian Ulrich. A multifunctional platform is available both for exhibitors and for visitors: thanks to Spielwarenmesse Digital, they still have networking opportunities and the facility to discover the latest trends, within the original timetable of the trade fair.
