Today I am going to do a more complete review on the VW fastback 08 first edition. This car comes along in the Drift King Thunt wave and comes in quite limited number which is one in every box just like the thunt. Perhaps because its a VW and the casting, superb color and tampo on the car and its limited supply, it's more sought after than the dk itself. Some have said that it is the "thunt" in this wave and not the dk. Yes the dk which is a flat black probably pales in comparison to this vw pedigree.
One of the first thing that you will notice about this car is it's sheer weight. It is fully metal on the outside and is quite heavy.
After taking it out, you will find that the car features an opening back much like the vw dragbus or the vw kahrman ghia of 2007 which was also very limited in number. The back opens and reveals the engine and the drivers seat. The roll cage which is made out of plastic can be detached and proped as a support for the body of the car. However the color could have been better as the lightblue rollcage gives it the "cheap" look. I've got a mind to color it black but probably in the future..haha.
The body of the car also can be detached from the base just like the 08 orange beetlecup to reveal a rather off road dune buggy of sorts, hmmm could be a custom of its own......
All in all, a very good casting and I can undestand why many people are looking for it, Its not just hype, its a good quality car for RM6 or so. Worth your money so if you see the dk wave on the rack, don't just be looking for the green striped card but look out also for the number 39 yellow striped first edition.
