Bummer it says that the auction has ended. Where did you read that it's smaller than normal?

I don't think that this body is smaller than the original one.

I don't succeed in undertstanding why Tamiya won't sell it around the world... Why the europeans, americans and australians "3-speed" fans can't buy it?? The price is about $60. If they can produce a very small amount of bodies for that price, I think they could make 10.000 pieces for $30, or less. And for the chassis...
I don't like the attitude of Tamiya, I think they are a bit arrogant.

Yeah I've been online all day looking for this thing.I did the coverter and it came out to $200.I have not found one yet.Even at $80 I'd buy one. Anything over that you might as well get an OG one.

Limited release: The body set is a limited edition release for the Tamiya Summer Festival on the 25th/26th August. It's a body set only. Limited to one purchase per person. At the show ONLY.

But there's always hope..... $7,350 Yen ... about $60US = $200+ on eBay starting Aug 27th.... Dammit, why don't these dummies wake up and release these bodies! Crap!

Ya Tamiya is not very smart. They make something that everyone wants (TLT) and then stops making it. Also on some of there RCís you have to think what were they thinking specially on there new truggy!

It has to be the box says 1/10 original mountaineer body is like 1/8. Look at how the hilift tires look in the fenders.

I think it's a 1/9 scale, like the original one. See how it looks terrible on the HL 1/10 chassis!!

Man what I would do for one of them!

I argree Tamiya has about no brains, I see everywere I go talk about this body, I easily bet even though they say $60 (them others that want it just as bad as us) will easily jack that price up to the $200.

Maybe theres hope!
