http://www.micro-ir.com/combat/lineup/index.html It's on the line up page.

Strangely the CT tank cost 4500yen instead of the 5980yen for the older tanks. I recall reading somwhere on micro-ir that you need to buy a special controller for 2980yen seperatly.

just about 4 weeks!

I just got the lowdown about the new Controllable Turret Tanks. Thanks for putting me on the trail Napalm.

Here's the deal...

- Starting September 18th, they will be offering the new 'Turret Controllable' Tanks...4,500yen retail. This is for the Tank and a ROM chip ONLY! The ROM chip that comes with the Tank is intended to be put into a regular controller (making the upgrade for folks that already have tanks much easier because they already have the controller!) and the controller is then able to make use of the Turret.

- Also offered starting Sept. 18th, the Controller by itself. This is the SAME controller that came with the regular tanks.

So, for people that already have Tanks (like me), you only need to buy the Tanks (for 4,500yen) and swap out ROMS. For folks that never had a Tank, they'd buy the Tank (4,500yen) and the controller (2,980yen)

I am 99% sure of this info, but I'm having a friend who can read Japanese verify for sure.

I knew the problem had to do with those darn rom chips! Otherwise we could have done it ourselves. Arrgg!

Thanks a lot for the info. I can't wait.

I've been discussing that very topic with Tiny recently. As it stands, his answer to me is "I'll try".

Every so often there's something that comes along that I nag after him to make sure it happens...This is such a thing.

As Sept 18th gets closer and closer, I'll be sending more and more reminders to him!
