New Die-Cast model available - Redline!

Apparently there is a new Sky die-cast model available. This is NOT the same one that was available from Saturn dealers (and elsewhere).

This one is made by Maisto (who makes lots of diecast car models). It appears to be a bit smaller than the Saturn one, but a bit more detailed. And this one is a redline, complete with dual exhaust, brake vents and turbo badge.

As far as I have seen, it seems to be only available in red, but I have not searched extensively.

There are a few available on eBay, and if you google "Saturn Sky Maisto" you can find several online retailers that have them.

I've ordered mine, and will post pictures when I receive it.

Just thought you'd all like to know about it.

2008 Red/Red/Redline
Auto, Single Monsoon, Spoiler,
GM LNF Turbo Upgrade Kit
Opel GT Antenna
Headlight Eyelids
Ordered 06/08/07
Built 07/20/07
Delivered 08/07/07

And no silver pearls, maybe I'll think about doing some masking myself.

Well i have never seen a Sky at KB or TRU and when I ask, they look at me like "what's a Sky?'.... <and thats how they look. I seen the Solstice and the Solstice Concept at my local Supermarket, but I don't own a Solstice, so i really didn't need to buy one...I also saw the Solstice RC at Target, no Sky yet, but if i see them i will tell ya'll about it...SteveSky67

Why does the Opel GT have the base sky front end? None of them were available like that, were they?
