2008

2008 saw a return to different basic ranges released into different markets, there are three distinct ranges this year; the USA range , Latin America (LAAM) range  and the ROW (Rest of the World) range.  
The USA range was expanded to 100 models; the others were still at the traditional 75 and some countries like Australia & New Zealand were supplied with both the ROW & the USA range.
