Does anybody know when the 2004 F1 cars will be available in 1/18 scale?

I think by Christmas 2004. I am waiting till June 2005 for the Autozone stock at $30 a piece ....
Season cars are usually produced by Mattel after the season concludes. Before Christmas would be a good estimate. Grand Prix Legends is listing them as pre-order.
I have on order:
Schumacher and Barichello
HOT WHEELS F1-2004 WORLD CHAMP DISPLAY (GP Legends Exclusive, wooden base)
HOT WHEELS F1-2004 LAUNCH (if made)
HOT WHEELS F1-2004 RACE

We just received the 2004 Hotwheels McLaren driven by Kimi Raikkonen. The other models should be trickling in over the next month or so.
Yes, but the early season 2004 and later in the season 2004 McLarens are different cars! Which one is actually available??
The F2004 is also readily available according to f1racing.net
Early one I believe.
Interesting. Please keep us posted. Heck, I'm even ok with a little self advertisement in this case!
Any word yet, whether there will be a Sauber 2004 model as well? I'm a bit worried as I heard, there won't be one.
Shows a Sauber in 1:18 from Minichamps
Just got the latest speedgear.com catalog showing the 1/18 2004 cars and no Sauber! Darn, now I need to find another place that has them.
Email Julia at the website I posted. If there is one, she can get it. It will be Minichamps, not Mattel.
I believe it is the early version.
It won't be available by Mattel. I'm not sure about Minichamps.
Minichamps 1/18th F1 2004 Race Livery
PG040011 Sauber Petronas C23. Giancarlo Fisichella.
PG040012 Sauber Petronas C23. Filipe Massa.
Minichamps 1/43rd F1 2004 Race cars

P040012 Sauber Petronas C23. Filipe Massa.
Sounds great. Where do I get a Minichamps in the USA?
You can find them yet on the german eBay. The limited edition of Nurburgring, and the normal one.
Here you have one: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=42836&item=6933558507&rd=1
Email Julia at the website I posted. They ship to the US. So does Grand Prix Legends.
Thanks everybody for your great resources and links.
I'm glad I'll be able to get this covered. I don't understand how Speedgear could drop the ball on this: They offer a Jordan, but not a Sauber, which has a Ferrari engine and came in 6th of the constructors? What gives?
Look again. Speedgear Catalog Volume 37, Edition 2, page 9. 2004 F1 World Championship Collection by Minichamps. DM4825 Sauber G. Fisichella 1/18 $75.
The minichamps race versions look to be slated for January '05 or so.
The normal Mattels (not the special race specific versions) should be comming into dealers in November. A couple are already out including the RB F2004 and KR MP4/19.
