Well, I know 12 scale has lots of fun. I used to run them too. But you know, it's the marketing strategy of the manufacturers killing (and saving) 12 scale. Those brands (brokomo, AE, etc) couldn't make much profit out of this tiny toys since it has only a few components compared with 1/10 TC. Fewer parts = fewer options = less profit.

But there was a small hit which didn't last very long since the brands put out something new to the market, like the SSG. I know there are many retail shops still stocking with the 12 scale parts like foam tires, T plates, etc. They are all waiting for the next wave. When? God knows.

After all, I couldn't agree with you more, 12 scale has lots of fun. But 1/10 pan car has even more.
