Brecht, the BMWs are currently only found in Smyths toy stores but should eventually be found in most supermarkets and Looney Tunes sets are a one off from one of our discount stores Home Bargains and will probably be all gone by the end of January at the latest I would think, first and only time I have ever found anything like these in the UK.

I have that Stingray, the colour really pops. Suits the casting well

Picked up these beauties yesterday. So glad to find out that these were for sale here in the UK as I was wanting these two in particular and now I have my two of each and am extremely happy with them.

I might try and get one more of each to try and do a wheel swap on them by putting better wheels on with rubber tyres/tires etc :)

Will probably be a hit with manga/anime fans. They look good.

I found them in B&M Zeus, but only some of them are selling them, I've been to four different stores and and only managed to get these four total. If you like I will try and get you one or two if and when I'm next in one and see any? then trade them with you for something else. :)

Went looking for a couple of R34s for Zeus but found none!! :( but managed to find myself a couple of Nomads which I couldn't find 1st time round. Don't worry Zeus I'll keep looking for you mate. I also grabbed the two Matchboxes which have taken forever to get to our shores and they were on clearance price as well as I think they are trying to clear stock to do the yearly revamp then put out new stuff hopefully :D

Really love the A100 casting

Am going to try and find an A100 or two for you as well if your interested Jeff?

That #29 car is a special release (should be out in various stores around your parts where you can buy Hot Wheels from) and is called the 'Leap Year' car with the #29 designated as the 29th day of February (the Leap Year day).
I was very lucky to have found two of these little guys though the second one is already spoken for, I will grab another one for you if and when I find anymore mate 8-), I think I have one of those 'Mothers' A100 pick ups for you if I remember correctly if you want it?

Nice additions Alistair.

Particularly like the F-Type, red Mk1 Escort, Alfa 4C, and the DB10, which I got myself yesterday.
