Mad Bull Question 5 years 5 months ago #52074

I'm trying to piece together the history of the 58205 DT-01 Mad Bull. Looks like it was released in 1997 but according to Blackholesun it was re-released with the same number in 2011. Having the same number makes everything more difficult. The same thing happened with the 58275 Mad Fighter but that one shows up twice in the TB database with a re-release 2011 date, but the Mad Bull shows up only once. I can confirm there really is a re-release because I have one NiB with a 2011 copyright, but I'm curious what the actual release date was and why it is not in the database.

I looked at 2011 Mad Bull releases & came up with the "Expert Built" (XB) version (ref 57813, 26th of March 2011), and 58205 (often with an "SW" suffix - no idea what that means). Neither are in the database ... I quickly came to the conclusion this is not my area of expertise, or even interest, TBH :blush: But the Tamiya rabbit hole is often bottomless ;)

The 58205 Mad Bull is in the DataBase, together with the Mad Bull Special, but there are at least four different Mad Bull kits:

58205 Mad Bull, Assembly Kit released 11.12.1997
57006 Mad Bull, Complete Kit released 11.12.1997
49174 Mad Bull Special, released 15.12.2000
57813 Mad Bull, XB, released 23.03-2011

The 57xxx models are not in the DataBase yet, I'm still punching, but there are so many :huh:
