Continuing a series of articles that take a look at some upcoming sets of 1/25 scale garage accessories…

We don’t want to make the same mistake for our third release as we did with the first two. Release #3 is scheduled for a Q2 2019 release, but the mockup has already been completed and we should have test shots soon. Here is a sneak peek at our mockup for this uplifting release. (see what I did there?)

As you can see it will be a 9′ service lift. It includes a figure with an impact wrench. The arms of the lift are articulated and they can be set at any height.

    For me – it’s disappointing….. the “garage diorama” is as exiting as seeing another 57 Chev – it has been done to death – It is predictable & boring. Too bad round 2 didn’t put the effort into a fresh idea – perhaps both vintage (70’s style ) & newer Car Show diorama kit series – various stanchions, new trophies, vendor booths, display bases, etc. THIS – is more of the same overdone glop.

      There are a ton of ideas we would like to pursue with this line. We’ll see what the future holds. We want to see how these first three do before we dig a little deeper.

    Jamie – An R2 sales display was sighted at a Walmart :

    Is this a one off for market research, or will these be popping up at Walmarts across the US? Canada?

      It was a kind of limited edition. We made 275 pallets available and it was up to individual stores to order a pallet. So it is hard to say how they worked out geographically.
