Associated RC10 (retro anniversary edition )

I would like to see Associated release an 'Anniversary' edition B4. Can't think what year the original car was released, but it's been more than 20 years I'm sure. They could offer a Factory Team with all gold instead of all blue. SWEET!

I'd like to see the Boomerang and an Avante series car re-released by Tamiya. I'd also like to see the Kyosho Ultima, Javelin, and Lazer ZX re-released.

I would buy a number of "new in box" cars from the 80's if money allowed. However, I probably would not buy a re-released version. One of these days I will drop some coin on a NIB Kyosho Optima.

I still have the orgional, but the 10T. Its great untill you put it next to anything modern. I have upgraded everthing possible with all new parts, just a few months ago.

Even with brushless and 4200 stick pack, its like jumping a brick.

I dont think a re-release would be worth there time. Most in the hobby dont even remember the orgional, when it was orgional.

There best bet would be a limited edition, modern throw back. Just my .02

No, if you want a shelf queen, go to ebay. Never will happen because not many buyers for it. Collectors would scream very loud at AE, they would lose out big as an investment.

ha ha, AE dosen't make any money off vintage collectors buying discontiuned items, the screams from collectors would go totally ignored if AE saw a viable market for a re-release of kits.

My vote goes to Saturate the market with Bruisers. Always wanted one, and can't stand the average going rate of 500+ for a roller!! It's ridiculous. Saturate the market, and the prices will faaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllll..................

I don't think a re-release would hurt any of the original's values. Also, I don't know of anyone who buys these older cars as an "investment". For me it would just be more of a nostalgia thing. It's not like these are going to be worth any real money.
