I just hope they all come to the USA. I assume since the other Gulf cars from them are here that the Mercedes will show up too.

Love the additional Legends cars and also the BTCC class.
Problem now is the GT class has caught my attention. Astons , BMWs , Bentleys, McLarens, and new TA cars . Well i best stock up on weiners and beans for this year as the steaks just took a back seat lol.
Nice Line up
Bob
The future is in our hands, choose wisely

The Scalextric website shows the '67 Cougar as the #79 Bob Estes Trans Am Cougar driven by Mark Waco which was removed from the 2016 lineup. As a Cougar fan this is back on my 'must have' list.

I'm also delighted to see more Javelins are on the way, especially the #63 Jocko's car. Jocko's shop was in Poughkeepsie, NY not far from where I grew up. It will be great adding his car to my Trans Am series.

But - the decals seem weird. The pictures I have of the actual car has central NY sponsors, businesses my father used in his construction work. I don't know what the decals on the Scalextric version refer to.

Hhmmm, the Ian Scheckter Gunston Lotus 72 is a must-have for me!

Very disappointing with wrong sponsors.

First of all I must say that is an ambitious list of new product. Regarding the Javelin, that livery looks pretty good to me. I wouldn't care if it were 100% fantasy as long as it runs decently in the slot equally as well as the previous Trans Am cars.

Look at that rear tyre on the 2nd faded photo. Hope the Scaley car comes out like that.

While I'm sorry to see the cars get delayed, I really don't care too much after realizing all three are coming (hopefully) this year.

As for the livery on Jocko's car two things to remember: 1) That is conceptual art, so it may not be true 2) Like the first Lotus 72 they did, it could be a "fake" livery for that particular logo.

Frankly - I don't care. Paint them up every color AFX did with theirs and I'll buy one of each.

I'm THRILLED they are doing the Estes Cougar and offering more T/A liveries. Plus, one is the Warren Agor Genesee Beer car! Bonus!

Oh, and the vintage F1/GP cars...I'm going to be broke this year.
