[Aoshima Back To The Future Kits] 2018 1:24 Re-Releases
« on: May 29, 2018, 01:29:45 pm »
Hi, Everyone!

Aoshima put their Back to the Future 1:24 glue-together model kits back into production for availability!

  • Movie Mecha No. 8 - Back to the Future DeLorean (kit number 4905083-011850) - released February 2018 - 2600 yen (about $24.00 U.S.D.)
  • Movie Mecha No. 9 - Back to the Future II DeLorean (kit number 4905083-011867) - released February 2018 - 2600 yen (about $24.00 U.S.D.)
  • Movie Mecha No. 10 - Back to the Future III DeLorean (kit number 4905083-011874) - released February 2018 - 2800 yen (about $25.00 U.S.D.)

These three model kits were originally released back in 1989 and have all been re-released many times throughout the years since.  They were last brought out again in December 2014, so Aoshima produced more to allow retailers to restock.  Kit numbers and prices remain unchanged from 2014.

The Aoshima Back to the Future II DeLorean is particularly nice as it has a feature where all four wheels can be simultaneously positioned in either drive or flight mode with a manual switch on the bottom of the model.  AMT / ERTL also sold this particular kit in 1991 (kit number 6122), and the kit was made available at the Universal Studios theme parks throughout the 1990s in their gift shops.  I have this kit myself, and I must say it is quite nice.

The Aoshima Back to the Future models are NOT the same as the Polar Lights / Round 2 1:25 snap-together kits.
