    They are listed as IN STOCK at tower.

    Just noticed... IN STOCK for $319... only a $19 upcharge for the KB edition. Im surprised. I would have thought it would be more. im also surprised its already out and shipping. Way to go traxxas.

    Still says "Order Pending," according to their website - which in TowerHobbySpeak translates to "Not In Stock, and we have not been given an anticipated delivery date"

    Must have been a glitch or something. It most definitely said "in stock" and was priced at $319.98.

    I'm sure I heard in an interview with one of the Traxxas guys that the KB ED was going to be released 1st January or was that the Fiesta's?

    I'm not doubting what you guys are saying, I just know today I was constantly checking the tower site and at one point it listed them as in stock. Obviously they aren't. Maybe just a mistake, quickly corrected.

    Since they've been saying December all along, which always means "later" and never "sooner," I don't know why you would have thought otherwise. Maybe you were reading the wrong product line.

    I'm guessing the "IN STOCK" could have been a temporary mistake. They probably updated the price and put the code in for in stock but quickly corrected it. Don't doubt that could happen. I used to write code for a website and it is very easy to type something incorrectly and have an undesireable result show up.
    It is very hard to read the "wrong product line" when there is only one below "Stock Status." I'm pretty sure that he can read English fluently and knows the difference between in stock and order pending.

    It says in stock again. Right now. I tripe checked and refreshed my browser.I think I figured out what it is though. The main listing of cars shows it as in stock on the left hand column, but when you open the page it's still listed as order pending. Clearly a glitch, and a tease really.

    Are they going to release just the body? I guess that they will, but I haven't heard them say that.

    Seems logical. That'd be a terrible idea not to. What if you shunt your KB edition into a fence at 30?

    please tell me this car isn't going to be a limited edition or something. limited ed stuff never comes to the uk.

    seems a shame traxxas haven't made green anodized trx parts for this.
    ... oh, and sorry about your wallet

    Limited might not come to the UK
    However...My LHS has 2 ..not one but TWO Revo platinum and that's the only 2 in Denmark
    so there's a good chance that my LHS will get it if it's a limited KB edition

    I was searching for a while and couldn't find what you were talking about until now:

    Yeah, looking to see if it's in stock is just torturing yourself. Just preorder it, and then wait until it ships in December.

    The new Tower codes came this morning, so I ordered mine.

    Ouch..... is it too late to cancel from the fleabay guy? He happens to get his inventory from Tower Hobbies, I only know this because he told a buddy of mine that.

    so I just ordered one from Tower also and just before placing the order joined their club to get the free shipping. I keep seeing you all mentioning a $60 discount??? It said my total was $319 but was $0 for now due to the backorder. Will they discount that total when they actually charge my card?
    I have never ordered from them before.

    You need to enter the coupon code. You may want to cancel the order and wait for the email with codes to come.
