It is quite unfair though to demand that a company produces as many models as you think they should. Ignition decided on a number for each model (around 200 each for the celica's), and thats perfectly ok, as it's their company and they are producing the model. However, since the celica's were out for preorder quite a while ago, it may be that some preorders will be cancelled when they are finally released to the shops, or perhaps Ignition themselves will decide to add another 20 or 30 to the production numbers because of the popularity. I quite honestly don't think it's a big deal, if you miss out on a model car then thats just life, there are alot worse things that can happen!! :-)

More 1/43 Samples (somebody out there is going to love the picture quality) :

IG0139 / IG0140 Nissan Laurel 2000SGX (C130) - a "pig ass" car according to translation. :lol:

There's a rich history of old Mitsus and Datsuns that dominated the Safari rally in the '70s that have yet to be released. You'd think that would be more of a priority for a Japanese model company.

Amen! Lancers, Violets, and some non-Safari Corollas should be a non-brainer I would think.


Make a couple of suggestions on their facebook page. Or I could if you don't do Facebook, list/link to pictures of a few cars and I'll see if they are interested.

Therein lies the rub. I would love for Ignition to make these models. I would hate myself for paying so much for the model. :lol:


Now that I'm down to just buying a model every few months I'm okay with shelling out the dinero to fill a critical gap in my collection. I'll try them on Facebook.

Looks great but I just don't think I need to replace my Auto Art with a $140 model. I know Skid made it as well, and isn't there an Ixo? I'm willing to shell out the big money for models that haven't been reasonably reproduced already, but it boggles my mind that they keep making stuff that's already out there.

There was a partswork release (Carlos Sainz Collection) but no official IXO release AFAIK. Still doesn't negate the fact that there are already very reasonable models of this car available.

I'm just as boggled as you are.

As I see these new releases repeatedly come up, it becomes obvious that Japanese has a very short heritage of fine automobiles. All the releases are of the same cars from the same thirty-five year period. I thought that as more Japanese companies came on board, I would see more of their past but it seems they were all driving foreign cars until the late 1950s. Which is ironic, since they now are the foreign cars that nearly every American drives.

I pre-order mine from Boost Gear, there is a contact email for postage etc. enquires, or order form if you are feeling brave, on this page
Depending on what you want though some pre-oreders are sold out, but there will always be ebay at a higher price (but given time you can snag some on sale there).

The 1:18s in those pictures look just like real cars. They are all very well-made and I understand they need to make the most out of every mould, but I would like to see more basic everyday cars. On the other hand- given Ignition's prices, it's better that they stay out of the stuff I really want.

I'm pretty happy there is nothing here my themes. This could easily lead to financial ruin :D .

That silver R34 looks amazing, I hope to find one on eBay before they sell out.
