Default Axial Yeti?

I know this may not be the correct forum for this, but I just got an email from Tower Hobbies for a pre-order on the Axial Yeti.

Does anyone know anything about it yet? I checked Axial's site, but didn't find much.

Yep, I received the same email today from Tower. That's how I found out about it!! LOL!!

Was it on Tower's website that I saw a release date of July? I can't remember...

See now the thing with this yeti is there is no info on it at all that I can find.
I've been really wanting to buy an axial for awhile now and this looks like the perfect match for me but would like more detail on it before I drop $429 plus probably $100 to ship to me.

Default Axial Yeti?

Never owned one am ready to take the plunge and was looking for where to start and was about to buy the wraith rock racer. So yes very green to axial just know they are bad ass and easy to get crazy amounts of stuff for.

They also like to play a very long intro song to anything they release. Admire the picture for what it is, but be prepared to wait for any more information to be given.

I'm sure it will be worth it, but there's no reason to get worked up just yet
