I can see the appeal for younger, but I would presume the main market for these will be the Asian market, similar to the Dragon's Girl Und Panzer series.

OK , not everybody's idea of a must have kit , but IMO , if priced right ,could be lots of fun to build and its motorized !. And a KV II as a future release . That might fit in with a 40K Space Marine squad that's been cluttering up my hobby bench . Always on the look out for weird stuff to built and kit bash

Shame on AFV Club!!

Why? Does making 1/35 accurate model miniatures somehow prevent AFV Club from making toys or other profitable lines? All the more success to them.

DML started off rather poorly in the 1/35 market (Kit 6001 Nashorn: woof! woof!). They meandered for a bit and then got into 1/6 action figures. Their revenue went through the roof. With this new capital, they invested heavily into profitable 1/35 subjects and we're the beneficiaries of that today. Wonderful company! Partly paid for by their "battle Barbies".

I hope AFV Club makes a mint!

The Super Deformed style extends to another genre of models...

Haha. The right deformation point could be low hull including tracks and wheels notturret. Funny and weird.

I think this is a great idea. Depending on price point I will definitely buy a couple for my kids.

They love the Airfix and Revell kits that can be put together without glue or paint. An absolute joy for me to share the hobby with my kids.

Hope the price tag will be fine.
