This is a sad moment for the diecast world. Its companies like Bburago that start a future diecast collector. Without these companies, it will be more and more difficult to grow an already difficult market. The number of future collectors will become smaller if they do not have access to these less expensive lines that gets them started in the collection hobby.
Stop in time and you will go down, that is a market law. They were comfortable with the consumer base they had, and didn't bother to evovle. Kept realeasing the same models that 10 years ago were ok, but to today's standards are poor or even crap. Their consumers migrated to other brands.
I don't think it is quite that bad, Yat Ming has really done a decent job lately (the E-type with carpet was pretty decent!). I saw the Solstice at a hobby shop today, looks good! (it was $30, I'll pass for now!) Welly's Porsche Cayenne looks good in the box, and some of the motormax cars are worth the $10 you pay at Wal-Mart. Also, Jadi/Revell has made a few good ones lately! So it might not be too bad...?
