TOPIC: 58662 Tamiya Comical Grasshopper WR02CB

I haven't seen any mention of this, but it appears to be a Willy (torso) figure in a shortened Lexan (uggh :s) Grasshopper body, on a Wild Willy 2 type chassis, with Wheeler wheels & tyres I'm unfamiliar with (?).

Apparently it;s due (in the UK) on the 12th of November, price around 140 GBP.

I can't make up my mind whether it's fun or ugly, but either way I can't help see it as a fairly cynical cashing in on cutesy/stumpy cars ... in that light, a version featuring that bloody bear seems almost ineveitable ...

Been widely discussed on TC and FB.
Apparently lower arms are TB01?
Wheels two piece. Second being an insert. Had hoped size would fit the M38 but tires say 52/55 OD for the rims...

You know, immediately after posting I wondered if I should go back & qualify my opening line with a "here" - I can't remember the last time I visted either of those other places.

Wheels are disappointing; are the shocks CVAs?

I dislike the chassis but the global car is funny. It looks like a cartoon car. The new satanas& diabolo car maybe.
