Some nice surprises here! Lots of great 1:18 Maseratis (Khamsin, Bora, Biturbo), 1:18 Rover 3500 Vitesse, re-release of Peugeot 504s and 1990s Saab. Very nice at the right price...

It seems strange that Minichamps have made a big deal of the BMW Art Car, with their display featuring a huge poster. However, I can't see it in the 2015 pdf ? ? ?

There is a 1:18 Art Car shown in bottom left of the right hand cabinet. I really hope we can get one in 1:43 as well :

Funny you should mention a 1:43 2010 BMW Le Mans Art Car, while i was looking on Diecast Legends site i came across this from Spark (see link below). Not sure if it's wishful thinking by DCL, or how long it's been up on the DCL site, but it would be great to see one of these released

Minichamps website has been promoting actual car art posters on it's weekly website so this big wall poster may be part of pushing 'art' renderings rather than a revival of modelling the Beemer in 1:43.

DCL/GPL website of the 1:43 future announcements Spark Art Car is tantalising it has to be said.

You have to be careful as they tend to post up models which they think will be released, rather than the actual models that have been announced. They have been doing that for years and then when the model isn't announced they take it down from the website.

I'll get at least the Honda Civic EG9 in Euro spec and there's also very interesting '06 Civic sedan as well.

Triple9 Collection also seems to have interesting models coming:

This is a must have for me, 1982 Mazda 323 Hatchback :)

So we can expect about 2/3rds of a page of actual releases from Minichamps this year then :D Interesting to note not a single Lambo listed.
1:18 Williams and BT49 from both Minichamps and Spark Hmmm!
Lars, hope you noticed Spark S4403 a must add

Notice the wrong pic for S4447 which got me all excited for nothing :(
Be interesting to see how Spark get around Nanny with the 93 Australian GP Ligier

Getting back to the BMW Art Car. Though, I don't live in the U.K., I do subscribe to the DCL weekly newsletter. If you look at the price, that is what DCL charged for new Sparks in 2011, not now. They've probably kept the listing up, just in case a certain Mr. Koons comes to his senses about his license demands from Spark. I just hope that I'm still around, if he ever gets off his high horse. Just an idea... It wouldn't surprise me if most members of this Forum, would like a copy of the Art Car, if and when it's ever released. Why couldn't we get a petition together, to let Mr. Koons know how we feel about this. It couldn't hurt the situation and if we're lucky enough, may even help. I'll send a note to Jeff & Andy, to see if this is doable. We're the customers, it's high time, we exercised our rights as consumers!!!!!

Woo hoo IXO are also doing the Dakar Rally MINI Countrymans :mrgreen:, so I could have a cheaper source than TSM versions thats assuming the IXOs are up to my standards when they show up.

And premium classixxs are doing a few american muscle cars which look very tempting, tho wot the hell is the mustang Mustero? :shock: ...looks kinda weird to me :? but interesting at the same time, if that makes any sense :lol:

I'll definitely be getting the Land Rover Discovery Sport when it shows up to alongside my other members of the Land Rover family :D
