Ok, so I recieved my new 2012 Brad Keselowski #2 Miller Lite FROST finish 1/24 diecast ARC on Friday.. just opened it up now... and I have to say.. what a disappointment!!!

NOT impressed with it at ALL! It is literally.. how can I describe this.. it looks like it's just been painted a flat GREY.. with a clear coat on it. That's it. Nothing more than that. I thought it would sort of resemble or look like the old Team Caliber PEARL finish.. but not to be. :no:

I got it because it's part of the Brad Keselowski collection of releases.. but I thought I would just give y'all a heads up on this finish. I would not recommend it at all. Not only that.. I wouldn't care if they discarded this finish for next year. Just terrible. :sad::wounded::ugly::vomit:

Just a case in point of current leadership in the lionel/RCCA wizardry...here's the crux of this situation...they already have the mold...they already have the tampos...putting flat grey, cosmos, fire, galaxy, glass, putty, toiletpaper...whatever finish they want costs them next to nothing...however it 'forces' the hand of completist collectors like yourself and others who want a gimmik...to pony up. I saw previews of them as was NOT impressed...just a crappy way to shill consumers...they'll force themselves into bankruptcy before they know it...thanks for the heads up, sorry to hear they sucked your money out of you.

You hit the nail on the head! It sucks they are trying to pull a quick one, instead of making a something different for collectors.

REALLY.. YEAH.. because that's what I do.. I come on here and complain about everything don't I? (SARCASM)

Keep your assumptions to yourself.. and stop judging people you don't know.

If you have a link... to prove your point I would love to see it.. because I never heard or read anything on what the finish was supposed to look like at all BEFORE they were released... I found out for myself when I opened the package today. Also, the words "FLAT GREY" when describing a diecast finish to the public for a positive outlook for sales.. not the greatest choice of words if you asked me... and besides.. I still would have ordered it irregardless just because it was apart of the releases for 2012.. it's just now I probably will consider it to be an 'ugly duckling' of my collection.. haha.

I'm not going to go on and on about it.. I was just disappointed is all.. and I thought I would share it with everyone else who was considering getting a diecast in this finish or had one on order and haven't heard any feedback about it yet. I will post a picture tonight.

LOL talk about the pot calling a kettle black...granted I might be considered the bitchmaster by many...but uh...just takes a few seconds to gander through posts from a guy who won't even drink from a glass let alone see it half full vs empty...anyways, thanks for the heads up, some folks might change their opinions of the finish after seeing yours. Real disappointment to me as it was to you...that deuce is supposed to be BLUE..looks way better with the paint as it's supposed to be, but they could also have done so much more with the concept to make it look sharp...but what do I know =)

Kinda see what you mean. Look better with autograph, so if you change your mind I have a few Kurt cars.

@BRAD K ALL THE WAY!!!
Darcy, thanks for your honest opinion on this finish. I'm not a fan of all the special finishes, but I guess anyone who is a completeist would buy the "frost" one. The gray sure takes away from the "pop" of the blue. The only special paint I think this car would look great in would be color chrome blue. I'd even like to see an actual race car for Brad done in color chrome. That would be sweet!
