Not really into the whole 1:43rd world; only have three of them.. So I was wondering if $24.00 USD is a good price for a (new) street 1:43rd Minichamps? Also, any good online shops with a nice selection of 1:43rd Minichamps?

Try Sportcraftcars.com and ewacars.com. They have nice selections. $24.00 sounds reasonable, but it depends on the model - whether it is a new release or how rare it is.

I'll vouch for two of the three listed vendors (EWA and FastOne) and add another:

http://www.gpmini.qc.ca/

Their site is up but most of the inventory sections aren't there yet. I e-mailed them about two Minichamps CLK-DTMs I wanted and they had both for a good price. Also, they're in Canada (Quebec) so it avoids any possible duty for me.

$24 is a good price for a new Minichamps 1:43. I got my BMW M1 BASF for about $25.

Others (like the Ferrari F355s and F50s) can sell for $50-$100, although I got an F355 Spider for $30 on eBay.

The DTM cars (Audi, Mercedes) usually go for about $50US each.

There are a few others that can fetch $150US+; I have one of these on the way. :giggle

:cheers

$24 USD sounds very reasonable for a Minichamps model. We pay double that in Oz for a new release.

I'd suggest eBay in addition to what's already been listed if you're prepared to shop online. Almost any Minichamps 1:43 car can be found there and you're usually able to get good prices for all but the rarest items (Mac F1's, Porshces, and RS200's).

Check the seller's feedback before buying though!

If you can wait a bit Replicarz should be having their "Blowout Sale" July 4th and you can really save some money.
I don't think I ever paid more then around $15 for Minichamps including DTM and Can Am cars in the sale.

$24 is a great deal for new releases. MSRP is suppose to be $35 for street car and $49 for race cars from Minichamps NA (although most sell for less).

The problem with Minichamps is that some of the popular models will be gone before any sales, so it's really hard to hunt down a specific model at a good price especially if it is a popular car.
