    Basically it looks like the 1:18 2008 edition if the Tumbler that originally came out in 2005. (Was it really that long ago?)

    Anyway, apparently the key difference is the front wheels appear to be steerable, and connected to a steering column. I'd also hope that the canopy opens better than the previous one.

    But all I can really tell from the pictures is the rear wheel gold trim is slightly different.

    Anyone have any more info on this?

    I don't have any info on-hand, but I'm connected through the Hot Wheel and Diecast community, I'll find out for you.

    Sweet, I looked all around google and eBay, and found nothing about a steerable 1:18 Tumbler. All I could find were references about the 2005 one, which I already have.

    I'd get this in a flash, except I can't even find an email address for Play to ask them specifics about it. Which is weird.
