The Tanker version is Limited Edition, The tow truck regular release. As they get closer to arrival, watch your favorite dealer.

I have the pre-order in for the wrecker, but it looks like no one even knows there is a tanker coming. I don't want one without the other. I have checked with 12 vendors- nothing. Not even a teaser. Is this one of those silly things where the manufacturer makes a delay to get interest? I hate that. Carrera doesn't do that as far as I know.

Sorry about that, the Tanker was announced as a Limited Edition a few months ago, and it is almost impossible for me to keep track what was announced sufficiently where and when...

This independent website has quite astonishing (to me) sources:

Yes, appears someone really sends them the latest, long before I ever see it :roll:

In any case a few more shots.

I wait to make any announcements about Limited Editions until I have full information... shipping (arrival), price, photos... until I have all this I'm not making any information public because it just stirs up trouble. Because if I cannot answer basic information it's pointless to post info. Now that we're closer to arrival it makes sense.

Also because the Tanker is ONLY an allocated slot car, we decide what quantities dealers will get. So we make it "available" if they want to order but we send the quantities we can based on the amount we get... which is normally VERY small.

Dave makes a good point. The limited editions are so popular and hard to get in the QTY you order that it doesn't make sense to take too many pre-orders. Chances are you won't fill them all and well, that makes the big boys sad. They will sell either way.

I would prefer dealers take NO pre-orders on them because we don't know how many we will get until they arrive. Each year we seem to get slightly less than the previous year.

All this goes to show- It really is best to just ask these questions. Look at all this info, completely unknown and unexpected, that came from my being frustrated by a few hours searching the WWW for any trace of a pre-order site for that tanker. I never would have guessed any of this. Clearly, it just pays to ask. Thanks, guys.
