Love those old American red wagons.
The HW Land Rover did not fair too well on the trip home... Whoopsie.
The price of M2 machines is really making me question life choices right now too.
That Camaro from the C60 and Trailer set needs a dedicated picture... An iPhone 5 camera with a blanket and a single lamp does not do this release justice, but it's what I got.
For anyone wondering, the C60 is too big for the trailer. I know these are designed for display, but couldn't they at least have the tow hitch low enough for the trailer's wheels to sit on the ground?..
Bigfoot... and Bigboot...
Finally found some of Car Culture Desert Rally. Power Wagon, Grand Wagoneer, and the Oldsmobile were the ones I wanted. 2/3 of them ain't bad, especially since I honestly thought I would never get my hands on any.
The store I found these in had Beyblades and Bakugan. I haven't seen those in over a decade...
A few more TLVs. A 512BB, 512BBi and a fairly modern Isuzu Elf.
Managed to pick up these HotWheels recently as well.
Nothing major, just a few mainlines that I like the look of.
Got the other 2 cars in the set along with a cool matchbox 5 pack. And a Miata.
Kday Haul. Kday is always fun, talk to other collectors and such. Yes it was at gamestop. No, I'm not going to call it Gday. I learned that there's a facebook group for collectors on the island... Now I might end up making a facebook account for that...
Exclusives: (customizers were all over the Charger and Miata, I couldn't believe how many some people were getting)
T-hunts (I was one of two to get the $TH GT)
No 22B Subaru, which is sad. My case had a Greenwood Corvette but I didn't notice until I put the box back, which sucks. I love that casting and only have the car culture release... Shouldn't be too hard to find once these start hitting the pegs at least. That might be a couple of months at the rate the local stores stock though.
New oldies purchased at an itinerant vintage fair.
The Ford-Continental Mark II by Mercury-Scottoy was produced in 1960. Model is mint with original box, unused, good as new!
The Lotus Elise by VITESSE is item n° 2100 out of 2500 made and came with a pretentious "Certificate of Authenticity" printed on some sort of parchment...
LEGO Speed Champions Porsche 911 Turbo which I proceeded to make into a Targa, because they're better.
New TLV Releases.
A Ferrari 246GT Type E, 246GTS, and 512TR - none of which are red, so they can't possibly be Ferraris, right?
As well as a couple of Honda Integras, one of which is red.
And a couple of older TLV releases. A Toyopet Crown Taxi and an absolutely tiny Fiat Panda 1100CLX
Fun fact: Dinos could never bear the Prancing Horse badge because Enzo deemed anything below 8-cylinder engines not worthy the Ferrari name, so they were technically not Ferraris...
I want one, but they are so difficult to come by (at least, at reasonable prices) where I live...
Really depends on what a ‘reasonable price’ is.
Got the Panda brand new off of JapanBooster’s eBay for around £13, which isn’t bad for a TLV, not sure what that’d be in euros or how costly the mail service is over there - I can only speak from my own experience, but I can’t imagine it costing too much more?
That’s assuming you shop online, but buying one physically? I’ve never seen one in the wild so I don’t know.
Yes, I do shop online, and would get it in a heartbeat if I could find one at that price...
Hard to find one for less than 25€ + awfully high shipping expenses from Japan for me though...
i have (somewhere) a fiat panda 45 1°gen, the one with the asymmetrical grille, in light blue that i got from a news paper magazine made by RBA Mondadori for the collection named "Auto Indimenticabili" a few years ago. i think it was a norev model but i'm not sure
RBA version is a IXO. It was recently made available again by SOLIDO, which is now outsourcing the whole 1:43 lineup by rebranding former IXO models.
NOREV version was included both in Auto Italiane da Collezione (Panda 30, in light blue) and FIAT Story Collection (Panda 45, in red), both edited by Hachette.
