Seems like that particular Brand has absolutely no affordable models to buy at this time.

Bburago still has the license I think. I'm not sure how long it will last.
Also there are many details about the license: exclusivity, scale, sealed versus open, etc.

Like at the moment, Bburago seems to have the exclusive 1:18 licence, but BBR (using Almost Real factory) is finalizing the F12 tdf, and at the same time many resin companies are making 1:18 Ferrari's. So sublicense from Bburago?
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.

I had such high hopes when Bburago got the license and they've done almost nothing with it...Considering that Ferrari is at an all-time high in popularity I doubt there's no interest or market for affordable diecast models for both collectors and toys, but alas, Bburago/Maisto just doesn't seem interested. Or maybe they hold some weird license where they can make only some cars and/or Ferrari just wants only some cars to be diecast while the rest to remain expensive resin versions... who knows... All I know is I don't like it, lol...
I'll be back

What was the time limit for the bBurago/Ferrari licence?
Does anyone know?
And it has been mentioned before on various threads, the copyright on 'shape' is 25 years.
Any Ferrari before 1993 can be reproduced, although it might not be permitted to call it a Ferrari.....

We are definitely missing out on quite a few Ferrari's based on their production releases in the past couple years that I would love to have in my collection.  BBR's prices are just too entirelhy high to justify a purchase.
