I sure liked the Fantom when I saw it in the Tower Hobbies catalog back in the day...when I was looking to buy an RC car to upgrade from my Frog, I gave this some real consideration...but ultimately went with the Optima because I could drive it anywhere, not just on-road. The Fantom is a great piece of technology for its time. This is a very cool, unexpected tangent for a re-re...right out of left field!

Yeah it's a super cool car. Always found it fascinating but I've determined that I have too much and need to pare down.

Looks like it's based on the first generation Fantom. It's a really welcome re-release amidst a sea of buggies.

Seems like nobody has discussed it as most didn't know about it, including myself. As a collector, I wonder how this will affect the originals value as the 1/12 Kyosho pan cars generally fetch a mint on eBay. Hopefully not much since original is still original.

I'm happy to maybe get some new wheels for my Axis EX assuming they're the same. Also, a new production body wouldn't hurt.

Either way, this is pretty rad. 8)
