Schumacher Re-releases the Mission

How about that? A touring car rere! The only others were the short lived Losi Drift-R (xxx-s) and the Tamiya Ta03F-Drift. This is like new money (I think that's how the kids use the phrase). I never understood why manufacturers would quit producing certain kits. In the model world they are still selling kits that have been molded before I was born. I am glad to see that manufacturers recognize the integrity of their past models. I'm not holding my breath for the Tamiya Blackfoot re-release because I was holding my breathe for Gran Turismo 5 to come out on Nov. 2 and Kazunori Yamauchi decided to push it back. I think the Japanese are secretly plotting against my happiness. Whoa too much crazy slipped out, enjoy the re-release.
