£40 (+ postage) for the Spark 2009 Le Mans winning Peugeot 908. No outer cardboard box but if you can look past that it's a good price

Anyone want the rarest Minichamps Maserati Indy?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MASERATI-INDY-B ... Swr~lYtZIZ

1 of 150 for only $59 - not sure how much he'll charge for shipping but even assuming it will be $20-25, still less expensive than the black ones still in stock in online stores.

Seems to be one that commands large $$. Awesome price if new(sellotape on box not a factory addition lol)..likely shipping cheaper inside US than Intnl.

I can see this fitting nicely in quite a few collections here. Not eBay but a good price: ~$26.00. Condition says only that there is damage to the box. No idea if the model is new or used so might be worth an ask.

Send an email to the info AT r-and-store DOT com email address listed on the page to order. Sometimes it takes Ken a while to respond but he does ship outside Japan and you don't need to know Japanese to order.

Japanese classic cars.

Ok.. wrong scale first up but for the money detail is actually pretty darn good and these are less than third the going rate currently in eBay offerings.

A steal at the current price of ¥1,500 on Yahoo! Japan but I doubt it will finish there.

Don't even tell me about it... :cry:

But I am sure its price is going to be sky-rocketed.

I saw it yesterday. If you allow a minor correction, it is the 1995 version (very rare BTW).

Last year one auction for the #46 and one for the #47 ended on eBay at £52 sterling each which today is around Y7,250 and slightly less than I paid for my examples. An unbelievable price, some Y4,000 more than the prevailing price for an Ignition model.

Just picked up a Minichamps 2009 Red Bull of Mark Webber for US$ 3.98 / GBP 3:00. Around here you can't even buy a beer for that :

Yeah, I was just checking to see if paid more than I should for it. It happens that I did good business there.

Ian... what's even more impressive is that we have another one for sale! It's your chance to grab one if you don't have it yet:

It is trending to go for a lower price though.

A local Australian eBay seller has two 'Spark for Replicars' Jaguar Concepts; the XK180 and R-D6. Both auctions have starting prices of USD40 and no bids yet :

I agree Tom, but we have plenty of 'completists' here on the forum, so it will probably appeal to somebody.

Really wanted that first one, missed out because the auction was ending while I was 30,000 ft in the air with no internet :cry: The only option was to put in a ludicrous bid hours in advance, giving people time to outbid me. So that was out, and some lucky bastard sniped it for starting price...

Finding another will be... a challenge.

You have another option Alex. If that situation arises again, let someone locally from here know in advance and we can place a bid on your behalf.
