Wanted to see if they're worth spending double the money. Besides, I've never opened mine so don't really know what it looked like, ther then web images. And the proto image looks bulkier and bigger
No offense intended by the little quip.
Anyway, the molds look bulkier because they are retooled. They get what the car enthusiasts call a body kit. The spoilers, the lower fender, side skirts etc...
The price hike seems to be due to all the sponsor markings and the GT label. Since these are meant to represent real world racing Nissan Super GT's. They not only have to license the labels,and logos of all the sponsors for all the cars, they also need to license the general Super GT Cup name for the line.
At the end of the day, its a specialty line, with several things there that hike up the price.
However underneath all that they are still Alternity Convoys.
