So, is there a crate of 'shine on the back seat to make up for no Luke in the passenger seat?


Computers. They'll never catch on.

No that's now sloshing around the passengers foot well due to the rough landing!

Got my General Lee today and what a great handler out of the box. One thing that Scaley always seem to do is build cars that are there or there abouts without farting around.

 

OH, the BrawnGP also arrived at Ged's today. YUM! Didn't drive it yet, too scared...


My mum says I'm an excellent driver

phew! nothing in there that is really grabbing me and saying buy me....

 

The Aston Martin LMP car looks cool, but I already have the DBR9 so I guess I wait for a single car (like the D-Tpye) or I don't get one

Still not sure where I stand on that one. Huge Aston Martin fan. Not so much a Bond fan, but HL is. Was very disappointed with the shots of the set version of the car. I think I'll have to wait until I can see this car in person before I can put it on the 'must have' list.

An disappointing line up from Scalextric for 2011.

 

cars-insert.jpg

# Mercedes GP Petronas (C3146, C3147, C3167, C3168)

# Ford RS200 (C3156)

# Bugatti Veyron (C3173 Super Resistant, C3199 High Detail)

 

# McLaren MP4-12C (C3157 Super Resistant, C3200 High Detail)

# Ford Fiesta RS WRC (C3183 Super Resistant, C3202 High Detail)

# MG MGB (C3143)

# VW Beetle (C3204)

# Chevrolet Corvette C6R GT2 (C3185 Super Resistant, C3189 High Detail)

 

There isn't much that appeals to me.

Hope Jules gets the Pioneer MGB out first.

 

And folks have been calling for another run on the Beetle, hopefully it's the real Beetle not the New Beetle.

 

Not really a lot to offer in there. Does it seem to anyone else that Scaley is gearing down their production?

This has some appeal - instant digital racing.....

digital-platinum.jpg

 

Digital Platinum is the ultimate Scalextric Digital set! Six cars, a vast circuit and the phenomenal Advanced 6-Car Digital Powerbase are all included (C1276).

 

Cars featured in the Digital Platinum set include 2x Porsche 997 RS, 2x Audi R8 LMS and 2x Lamborghini Gallardo GT-Rs, offering racers the ability to block and overtake whilst they battle it out for the chequered flag.

 

Otherwise nothing there - no new classics, Mustangs, GT40s, Camaro, etc....have to wait for more details I guess, mind you this is the first year I really haven't thought about what they were releasing - 2011 is the year of the slot.it GT40 for me....

Club car looks ok Audi R8 - livery is nice

 

cheers

I'm sure they'll be doing 30+ cars in 2011, for some strange reason they trickle out the information, why they can't put the entire catalogue online is beyond me.

 

Interesting that they are trying to fight some of the other manufacturers (Pioneer - MGB, NSR - Corvette).

 

Have to wait and see what else they come out with...

It's not just the MGB you'll have a choice of. News of the Pioneer VeeBub has been held back assuming (quite correctly) an announcement from Scaley. The Pioneer VeeDub made a very quick appearance on the website last March and was pulled off again damned quick. For those of you in the inner circle that have full proto pics of the red VeeDub, please do not post yet. Here's a quick look but we need to get the colour right first before we show the whole thing. Thanks, Jules.
