    Default Bullhead re-release?


    Members do not see advertisements


    apparently Tamiya is expected to re-release this unique truck at the Shizuoka Hobby Show next month, I certainly do hope so! Yummy box art, and a new set of axle to fool around with!
    nope, can't think of something dutch that doesn't get blocked :D

    Thats pretty cool. I always liked the bullhead body. Would be cool to get one and leave it stock.

    Yep it's coming back!! Im wondering if they have plans up their sleeve for a chrome semi body with ESC. Or just a plastic hard shell body with real metal chrome parts with ESC.

    If they re-release the Bullhead I am pretty sure I know what my next truck will be.

    It's very sweet becoz once they have the spare replacement chrome parts circulating around, I will order those in to install on the existing black BullHead body that I still have put away for safe keeping.

    wonder if anything changed on the sticker/decal sheet. Seems most re-releases can't be the same as legal issues with names or sponsors have changed. They did keep that ugly yellowy orange, so that can help anyone needing those parts.

    The Bullhead always looked very cool, but man all that weight up high it handled like crap, real bad. A lexan repop would do it justice and make it more fun. Wonder if that guy who sells on e-bay ever thought of it?

    I think the main thing here is... Everybody want's the BullHead to come back!! with original shell. Lexan bodies just dont compare to the original hard body shells.

    I am hoping to add the Bullhead to my stable when it comes out. And likely will keep it bone stock including the shocks. For me it is the look not the performance that attracts me to the Bullhead. And the plastic body is lightyears ahead of anything that can be done with Lexan.

    you missed the point, a lexan runner shell would be nice to have. Tamiya did it with the Brat re-release. The Bulhead won't be a big seller, never was all that popular compared to the clod sales so adding a couple bucks for a lexan runner shell to include wouldn't hurt the sales.

    And I don't think "everybody" wants the bullhead back, meh it's nice to have it back. However it is not something that is a must have for the majority of the R/C hobbiests. I know I have no interest. Just look at how many for years wanted the bruiser back, and now that it is how many complain it's too expensive. It's cheaper in todays dollar now than it was in the 80's. If Tamiya released the bruiser 6-7 years ago before all the scale release from axial and rc4wd and even their own highlift sales would be better because options would be fewer. But a big rig body on a clod is more a novelty, not a sales gold mine.

    Maybe what Tamiya should have done is released a body kit. I mean they just re-released the Clodbuster so why not make an addon pack. Plastic body with all the fancy metal parts. Lexan equivalent body. Maybe yellow bumpers and shocks? Really all the Bullhead is is a Clodbuster with different body and colours.

    Everyone wears rose coloured glasses when looking at the past. And since the Bruiser and Clod are old they figure the price should be cheap. But the price will be determined by the market. If $1000 truck sells the price will not drop. But if it doesn't then the price will drop.

    I have two Clods and when looking at getting a third I would go Bullhead simply because it looks different from my other Clods. And to me it is just cool. then again I also think a 1978 Chevy Impala Landau and 1976 Cougar XR7 are kickass looking cars.

    I don't have a Clod. I have seen a stock Clod and I was dissappointed, I guess a fully modded Clod is what I would like. However Clods and Bullheads are cool looking! Anyways thats all I got.

    For me it is stock clod all the way. It embodies what I consider the true monster truck. A truck bought at the dealer and jacked up on massive axles and tires. A lumbering brute. That to me is the true monster truck. The tubed framed built in a garage from scratch trucks are just stadium racers with big tires. That is what the modded clods are. Call me old fashioned but I would love to see a return to the days of an actual stock truck turned into a monster. Mind you I would also like to see stock cars do the same thing.
