I'm going to limit my diecast purchases this year as I am now collecting action figures at a freightening pace now. So my iecast budget is being split in half.

Five models I plan on adding this year include:
AUTOart MB-AMG S65
AUTOart MB-AMG C63
AUTOart Porsche 997 Turbo - Any color
CC Eifjy Concept
*Need to add one more

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Good luck obtaining the Efijy at a sane price. eBay is the pretty much the only source now and they're going for crazy $400+.

These are some real "wish lists" as most of the models listed are not even out yet. :giggle

Instead of compiling a master list as we have done in the past, might be best to wait until the actual models are released.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I thought you were allowed to list models that weren't out yet, as long as they've been announced?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I agree!  :confused

If your going to list models that are not out on the market yet, at least make sure they have been announced.

In my case, I got no choice, my entire wishlist (50-60 models) are all models that has been announced but not yet released.

Lucky you,
in my case it is about 30 models, most have been released but did not pick them up
A few examples:
-Motorbox Porsche 959
-AUTOart MB G-Wagen (but heard the AMG G55 is coming out  :happy )
-Guiloy MB C112 Prototype
-VW/Porsche 914 (will probably wait for the AUTOart /6)
-Kyo Fiat 131 Rallye Alitalia
-VW Beetle (type 1, was waiting for a quality one perhaps a Minichamps, but looks like I will have to settle for a Maisto/Bburago/Road Legends/Revell :( )
-Solido Peugeot 205GTI
-Norev Porsche 930
-AUTOart/Norev Porsche 911 997 Turbo
-AUTOart/Norev Porsche 911 997 GT2
-AUTOart Porsche 911 997 GT3
-Kyo Audi R8
-Kyo Audi A8 (D3) W12
-Minichamps Audi RS4 (B7) in both sedan and Avant
-Minichamps Bentley Continental GT
-Minichamps Bentley Flying Spur
-Minichamps Bentley Azure

And many more  :help

Now how about  wishlist of models that have never been made in 1/18?
-MB 500E and AMG Hammer W124
-MB W140 600SEL and 600 SEC
-MB W126 560 SE/SEL/SEC
-MB W116 450SEL 6.9
-BMW E39 M5
-BMW E34 M5
-BMW E23 745i (Turbo)
-BMW E38 740i Sport
-BMW E12 530
-Audi S6/S6plus C4
-Audi S2 B4
-Audi RS2 B4
-Audi RS6 Avant C6
-Audi S8 D3
-Audi RS4 Avant B5
-Audi RS6 Avant C5
-Lotus Omega
-VW Golf GTI a6V and Rallye Golf Mk2
-VW Golf VR6 Mk3
-VW Scirocco 16V (1986)
-VW Golf R32 Mk4 and Mk5
And that is only from Germany (well sort of, sans the Omega, but even that has German roots)
-
But...but...but the Chinese labor rates!

I just checked my wishlist carefully, and to be exact, there is 56 models on my wishlist, all coming soon models, except for 2 old models that were released a while ago.

One is expensive when I find one, and the other is a long-time holy grail that I can't find at all.  :sos

Ok, I'm new to this so my list should be mostly existing models:

AUTOart Carrera Gt - Black
Hot Wheels Elite 430 Scuderia - Red
AUTOart BMW 3.0CSL - Silver
AUTOart DBR9 - Green
Minichamps 300SL Gullwing - Silver

Cuda makes a good point - what are your "holy grail" models that are rare but desireable? For me, I'd love an AUTOart Jaguar XJ13 but they're already out of production.

Edited by joeyo387, 11 January 2008 - 10:51 AM.

A focused or planned collection can tell a story, while a random collection talks mostly about the collector. Neither is better than the other, it's personal choice - Woobs

though i didn't do good at all with my 07 list, i wanted to participate. dunno if i will do good this year or not...

all 1:18
1. kyosho bmw e90 m3
2. bmw 2002 turbo, kyosho/AUTOart whichever is cheaper
3. kyosho z4m coupe (if its released)
4. bmw e39 m5 (can't i dream?)
5. bmw e90 m3 gtr (one more dream?)

yes, there are plenty of other ones i want that are out, but it is a "wish"list (i wouldn't mind an x3, 7 series, or the older 3/5/7 models).

i'm holding back on the standard e90 m3 in hopes of a gtr coming out. the 2002 turbo i want to sit next to my black bmw e30/e36/e46 m3 gtrs.

i did get to play around with the hot wheels ferrari elite/super elite/schumacer cars, but if i get even one ferrari, i'll need a lot more...

--soheil

Edited by soheilm3, 07 March 2008 - 06:18 PM.

if you have a 1:18 kyosho bmw 328Ci e46 coupe you are willing to part with, please contact me.
