If you ever happen to come across any of the red F-150, red Transit connect or any of the Porsches then you know what to do mate... ;) :D

I have still not found any of the ones I just mentioned above here in the UK and I am desperately wanting them for my collection.
I have a couple of the silver F-150, couple of the blue transit connects and NONE of the Porsches, we will never get the Porsches on this side of the pond because they are a special series release which will be US and Canadian only items :cry:

Also need a couple of that silver caddy too, save me having to paint one of my extra orange ones that I have :lol:

I just this week saw a white esprit from the james bond films, but left it because I already have a couple of them.

I buy or at least try to get my 1:64s as a pair minimum so as I can open one of them and leave the other in its packaging to be displayed behind the open one.

Keep up the good work boss 8-)
Went on a shopping spree with your money :D , 2 Walmarts were involved but this was the best I could do.

:shock: Wowzers that's the fastest my money has EVER been spent, I THINK!! :lol: Thank you SO MUCH :D

Jeff you are the man!! 8-) :mrgreen:

Nice haul! Still trying to avoid these, as several local shops sell them and they're cheap. The volume of nice ones could end up being expensive in the end, though... and I have a shortage of display space already.

:lol: ...you know you want to Tom.

I find it very difficult these days to be able to afford to buy much larger scale diecasts etc and even then they are from now on, only going to be pieces that I REALLY like and feel I have to have in my collection. These little beauties give me just as much pleasure as buying the larger stuff for a far better price range and it still gives me that great happy feeling when I do buy them just like I get when buying the bigger scales. 8-)

Jeff, I meant to ask you, do you have the white 'James Bond' Lotus Esprit? If not then I might have a spare one here for you if your interested mate along with a couple of others I have already waiting for you ;) :lol:

Nice haul indeed of some good looking HW - like Tom I am afraid to get too deep into these "cheapies" as there aren't enough shelf space... :)

I had it in my hand the other day but somehow when I got to the checkout it was not in my (mostly yours :lol: ) pile. Was not walking back to look for it as Super Walmarts are gigantic stores.
I am interested. ;)

Alistair, are you still looking for the Porsche's ? I found all except #2 in Hamley's at Dubai Mall today. If Hamley's Dubai has them, you may find them in Hamley's London.If not, I'm happy to get any you want :

Hi Ian, thank you VERY much for thinking of me. I have managed to find the remaining Porsches I needed from a couple of local Toys'R'Us stores to go alongside the ones Jeff has kindly gotten for me which will complete my set once they arrive. I was also surprised and very fortunate to also find and get all 5 of the James Bond Series too at the same time in TRU.

Let me know if you find #2 (Black and gold 918 Spyder), if not then I will try to get one for you if I come across again.

Thanks again Ian 8-)

Thanks Alistair. I'm not actually collecting these - I have more than enough 1:43 on order to keep me busy. I saw these and remembered your post, so just photographed them in the store with my phone camera, then put them back on the racks again.

Nice one Jeff, those Porsche boxes only contain 1x each of the 914/6, Boxster and 918 Spyder from what I can recall.

My favourite are the 914/6 and the Boxster. Never really liked the 1:1 914/6 but for some strange reason I really like the 1:64 :lol:

914 is really nice. One of the 64s that have been tempting me a lot.

Too bad it didn't look more like the drawing on the card

I think my favorite of the series is the 917 but the one I wanted the most (probably because i couldn't find one) is the 914/6

Oh, it's the lawn mower Porsche, the model looks better than any 1/1 I've ever seen. Nice! Actually, I've seen so many of them lately that I thought they were back in production. :lol:

Nice Van and well detailed for 1/64. Surely this one would be great to see in 1/43 too.

That's a really smart set

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.
