  1. If you are talking about the ‘Tsubasa’ sets, yes it ‘might’ have been an excuse to raise prices, but the prices have NOT RISEN at all !!!

    If some retailer has increased their prices on these new releases, then you are being RIPPED OFF 😦

  2. Good reasons to increment the list prices.

  3. Robert, externally I don’t think there is any difference. The two sets will have the upgraded new mechanisms with flywheels, as well as the new pickup type bogies. That is all I know so far …

  4. Doug,
    Thanks for the prompt info.

    Do you know which are the differences of the new Shinkansen JR 400 (items 92795 and 92796) vs the old/present ones?
    If known. New tooling, LEDs, or whatever else?
    Many thanks in advance and best regards
