After the unfortunate bankruptcy of Eaglemoss back in July 2022, current and new builders of this ‘Eaglemoss’ 1:8 scale Nissan GT-R partwork model were left without knowing if it would ever return.
Well, after many months of behind-the-scenes work sorting out legal, licensing, and logistics hurdles, the actual manufacturer of the parts (PCT/IXO) is now offering the model again directly from their website with worldwide shipping expected to start by June 30, 2023!
For ex-Eaglemoss subscribers: While IXO is only selling the GT-R as a FULL KIT on their website, they do plan on offering discount codes to ex-Eaglemoss subscribers sometime around the end of February 2023. These codes will reduce the price of the full kit relative to the number of issues that each customer already has in their possession. This effectively means that these builders will only pay for the issues they need to finish the model.
UPDATE August 2023:
This Nissan GT-R has temporarily been removed from the IXO website, but it should return in September.
UPDATE May 11, 2023:
IXO has provided some information and clarification regarding the discount codes that are available to ex-Eaglemoss customers who were building the Nissan GT-R and/or Willys MB Jeep. These codes are one-time use only and require an Eaglemoss customer number to validate. They will reduce the cost of the full kits to cover the issues you already have:
To have your personal code that can only be used once, you must first register on the IXOcollections site: https://www.ixocollections.com/en/.
Then, you write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the same email address as when you registered, giving your old Eaglemoss subscriber number for this collection and the last number received. IXOcollections will give you a discount code on the complete kit to be able to finish your collection.
ATTENTION: This is a personal code for former subscribers and not a promotional code to buy this kit.
