My Mattel rep tells me I should get most of my remaining orders by Mid December.

I have both Heritage and Elite La Ferraris on order from months apart so I assume I will get at least one of those by then.

He also tells me that even though the agreement is up, I will still be getting some shipments into the first part of 2015

How did u here about the F14T cars? Since there's recent changes within the Ferrari organization just maybe Mattel may get there license renewed... I wonder if they'll release the California T in 1:18 scale but as I heard this model was cancelled months ago.

I have been told that I will also be getting the 1/18 Niki Lauda 312T2 BLY40

I think I may have to have one of those myself

Well I know they were going to release the F14Ts a month before the cancellation of certain 1:18 Ferraris including F14's but knowing the ordering part number doesn't mean they will actually will release them.

I agree Mattel can be unpredictable but I am working from a list my rep sent me when I asked him to tell me which of my orders I could still expect before the agreement ends

If you hear anything on the 1:43 F14T cars, would you post it here, please.

Thank you

I'm reading complaints on other sites about quality issues with the LaFerrari. Anyone here with experience?

I have few Laferraris already pass through me and have disassembled a couple. What exactly are the issues you are referring to?
On similar note, I received my 458 Speciale from Mattel Elite and it has a lot more quality issues than the LaFerrari.

Paint quality, especially on the yellow version. I've seen a Youtube review and although the reviewer didn't mention anything, it was clear that there were different shades of yellow on different parts.
