    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:
    1/43:
    Schumacher and Barichello
    1/18:
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 WORLD CHAMP DISPLAY (GP Legends Exclusive, wooden base)
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 LAUNCH (if made)
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 RACE
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 Ferrari F2004 F1 GP Bahrain 2004 winner Michael Schumacher King of the Desert
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 Ferrari F2004 F1 GP Barcelona 2004 winner Michael Schumacher 75th victory in his 200th GP
    HOT WHEELS F1-2004 Schumacher Simply the Best 7 Times World Champion

    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??

    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.

    Rats!
    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.

    dretceterini,

    I believe it is the early version.



    Tifosi12,

    It won't be available by Mattel. I'm not sure about Minichamps.

    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?

    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.
