Default Toys/Models of the 2006 Impreza/WRX/STI/WRC car????

I posted this about a month and a half ago, but i'm posting it again to find out if there are hopefully some updates or new releases.

Do models of the 2006 STI or WRC car even exist? It seems like every online store has a surplus of tons of 2004 and 2005 SWRT cars, but NOBODY has anything with the new 2006 front end.

I've called SOA a few weeks ago, I called several online model shops, etc. and nobody has anything or knows anything. I even e-mailed the SWRT because I think of all people they would have to know something, but nope, they didn't even know.

Mabye if Petter won a few rally's we would have had a model by now?

The 2006 model year is almost over and there are still no models at all for the 2006 STI or 2006 WRC car. What gives and will anything be out anytime soon?



Thanks!

There is nothing from the WRC side yet, there are kits of the Impreza in various guises from Fujimi as pointed out above.

Try http://www.hlj.com and search for Impreza

Fujimi or Tamiya would be your best bet for an 06 front end impreza. Not sure if they exist yet or not, but like someone else already said, it takes about a year after a new car is released before the market gets flooded with toys and models.

Heres a street car you could decal to look like a WRC

Autoart will be making both the STI & WRC in 1:18.....they're on their future release list. No time table yet.
