One New Tomicarama, More in the Pipeline?

So, Andy(Epic Collage blog) provides link to photos from the 57th Shizuoka Hobby Show?  It's been long time coming, but I think lot of us seen this new Tomicarama already.  Accelerator 426:

It's already available for preorder, about $70(before shipping).

It's a retread we've seen in maybe 3 different Tomicaramas, more if you count the gas stations(same building, 50% size base).  Personally, I didn't find it very exciting.......  WAIT:

  • Car Lift
  • Garage
Card mentions how compact they are, also says that they are demo/sample, no MSRP, no release dates.  Now, this is new.  They don't do whole lot for me, but at least they are different.  Personally, I'd rather see Fire Station, Police Station, race track, pit, train station, etc., etc.(I'm pulling out from collecting, what do I care. :p)

I'm not sure what to make of it, but the one of the left seems to be cutout section of a larger car garage, one in the middle with the brown car in it is the small garage & open canopy parking thing on the right.  In the pic below, with red car on it seems to be the car lift.  Kinda reminds me of the GreenLight set I have in 1/18.  Better, but still meh for me.  :D
