News for 2021 from Almost Real

Because of Covid-19, the Nuremberg Toy Fair has been scheduled for the end of July this year, so we won´t get the usual February heads-up of things to come, unless manufacturers tell us individually.

Almost Real have told us that, as seen with their latest Land Rover Defender, they are trying to make models more interesting, adding some sort of extra. For the Defender it meant more functional features. We expect the Pagani Zonda, the Land Rover Discovery and the new Mercedes G-Class within the first 6 months of this year. For the second half of this year, they plan to release something interesting and functional beyond the model itself. In this context, the Pagani Huayra Roadster and Huayra BC will enter the stage, I assume at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in July.

In contrast to Solido´s 2021 campaign, that´s all Almost Real wants to share with us at this point.

    A third Huayra Roadster? Don’t get me wrong, I love Paganis. But LCD’s one is going to be hard to top, and we already have the Autoart one for the ones who prefer it, plus several in resin. I think their efforts would be spent better on other Zonda versions, or if they want to make a Huayra, there are still some that haven’t been made in scale, for example the Pearl, Macchina Volante, or many others with the extras such as scoops and so on. Or even the not-so-easy-in-the-eyes Imola!. But again, I’m scared about their pricing…

    They need to hurry up with those Zonda models. Turn around time from initial announcement to release is an absolute joke

    I believe it when I see it. Sadly AR has announced a scheduled release for the Zonda so often which was then followed by utter silence, that I don’t care what they announce anymore.

    A shame, but it makes them look incompetent as hell. Great models, very poor communication.

    I have to admit that I understand all of these reactions. I am still waiting for my pre-ordered dirty Camel Trophy Defender 110. The pricing-prospect for the upcoming extras scare me as well, especially if they are not justified by the model itself but something other than the model. Fortunately for me, I do not care so much for the Zondas or the Huayra BC. I do want a carbon blue Huayra Roadster, though. That´s why I have now anxiously bought the AUTOart. I wish it was a matter of choosing between all the options on the table. But the days are gone when pre-odering a model from a manufacturer was a risk-free no-brainer.

    I was looking forward to the Blue Huayra roadster, myself, it looked like it was going to be fantastic.

    After doing careful research I’ll now send the AA right back, too many corners cut by AA for a far too high RRP. We DO need this third Huayra Roadster, as this refined automotive piece of art has not received the treatment it deserves.
