Given that it is the new year, some model manufacturers have already announced their plans for this year and there are a few surprises. If you want a very well detailed factory team car in 1:43, you're in luck, as two factory teams have switched brands (not car brands, but model brands).

Without further ado, this is what is confirmed so far:

Apex Replicas:

Pepsi Max Crew Falcon FGX - 1:18 Diecast/1:43 Resin
Bottle O Racing Falcon FG - 1:18 Diecast/1:43 Resin
DJR Team Penske Falcon FGX - 1:18 Diecast/1:43 Resin

Biante:

Holden Racing Team Commodore VF - 1:18 and 1:43 Diecast

Classic Carlectables:

Red Bull Racing VF Commodore - 1:18, 1:43 and 1:64 Diecast.

Would assume Apex will be doing the Volvos as they are making the 2014 SMP400 ones.

The question will be...how long do we wait for them

Actually ruined my day knowing they are not doing the Reynolds car in fg-x spec due to sponsor commitments what a stupid decision. :(

Ironic that the team which wins so much, will have models of lesser quality than other teams.

The Shell #17 will be made by Apex. I can't imagine that being popular at all.

Only thing is they're missing the Monster logo's? Late sponsorship deal or is there a new law on energy drinks sponsorship?

Late deal as there aren't any Monster logos on the teams merchandise.

I wonder when these were made? The livery must have been chosen a while back to have time to make and ship them?

We're still waiting for the 2013 Biante cars, money talks eh.

The way the diecast market is a lot of models end up for way less than the original price on Ebay so unless you strike at the right time they aren't a good investment unless super super rare

When he wins there'll be a 'Championship' model anyways - as raced at Sydney.
