Just saw pictures of this a few minutes ago over at NYzeki's blog...

Thanks for the info Jason. It looks to be just a little bit smaller than the Medicom Spinner.

More also at Macky's blog...

Nice. 1/18th scale, or bigger? Hard to tell since there is hardly anything in any of the photos to indicate the size relative to something familiar ...

Here is NYzeki's picture of it next to a Medicom...



Posted as a link since the photo doesn't always seem to show.

You can see the proportions are a bit different. Closer to the Anubis kit.

Sorry, what I meant by "proportions" was the narrowness of in its proportions to itself, not in scale to the other kits. The shape, not the size.

Nice to see a Spinner model within a good price range. but I'd love to see the wings moving aswell, like the comet minitures that was relesed in 1996.

The triangular flaps with the numbers on each side of the car are kind of a wing. They open up in the scene where the car is landing on the police station. They seem to be used as an air break or deflector for the propulsion during landing.

Thanks (Andy) for the better explaintion of the "wing/flap" system.

I can only dream that Diamond Select can get the licensing for future Spinners, really impressed with BTTF fllying time machine (lights and sounds) $80.00 AUD.
