Mine was today! I went to Costco for this evening's supplies and they had the few remaining Maistos for $5.88. I got a Audi for the wheels.

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

I talk about it all the time, but I'd have to pick my Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. I learned about a store that had them for $19.99. Sure enough they had them! I had always wanted a 599 and I love this color in person. It's just phenomenal!

"I thought it would help the community if we started a thread where we could post pricing information on our recent acquisitions. This will serve a few functions
1) Be a central thread where we could all research the latest market price (going rate) for any model (new or old).
2) Use this as a possible guide to determine possible selling prices
3) Fun, just to see who got a great deal and see if they can share where it was found

The intent of the thread is to have a market guide and works best if as many members as possible post a few pieces of information about what they bought, when it was bought and possibly where it was bought.  


It's probably best to only add purchases bought in the last few months in order to keep the market prices as fresh as possible. What do you all think?

Here is mine, if we can keep the layout as below, that would be great.

Scale: 1:18
D/O/P: 9/24/12
Country: UK
Price paid: £17
Shipping cost. £5.95
Condition: New
Seller: Ebay seller Mergeleft UK

Also guys... GWAZ is being kind enough to do a spreadsheet, this will make it much easier for you to look through all the info that is being added about purchases.

Please add your prices to this Thread before the spreadsheet.

Click here for the spread sheet.

Great bargains to be had with this seller guys.

Thanks to Tony for helping me Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I have been asked to change the requirements to now also include the shipping costs.

So under the price you paid, could you please add your shipping costs.

Thanks guys.
