AutoArt's biggest rival these days is Almost Real. Boasting beautiful fully opening, highly detailed, metal-bodied models that are priced right in AutoArt's neighborhood, Almost Real has been blowing collectors away with every new release. This week's reveal of their new Defender 110 is no exception.

Announced via Facebook only yesterday, Almost Real's new Land Rover is UN-Real. It features a whole slew of overland kit including a roof rack, working fold-up ladder, and heavy duty external gear box that opens. There's also a front brush guard that can be popped on or off. The Defender is also equipped with a tow hook, a snorkel integrated with the A-pillar, and some tasty white steelies.

The model doesn't even need all of those accessories to be impressive. All four doors, the tailgate, and hood open, plus every panel is made of old-school metal. Almost Real has applied the Defender's signature Pangea Grean color to the SUV's body and paired the paint job with a white roof and white wheels. Just about every grille is perforated, hinge is true, and lamp is crystal clear.

All this and a bag of chips for $258. That might sound like a lot of money, until you realize you just pre-ordered AutoArt's Regera for the same price. At the end of the day, it's either Almost Real's opening metal car versus AutoArt's opening plasic car... I know which one I would get!

  • Really like it but thats too pricey. I’d rather buy a radio controlled defender and do some scale off roading for real.

  • It sucks that they show you a well made model, just to tell you how ridiculously expensive it is.

  • The Camel trophy is what caught my eye and my first Almost Real in 1/43. They do have the 1/18 version as well with all that opening features.
