Online is definitely the way to go for buying diecasts these days. Much better selection than local and it's not that hard to find the one you want for a decent price. I have tons of cars ranging from 1/64 to 1/18. Some really expensive ones I leave in the package or if I really like the car, I buy another one to open. I used to buy everything back in the day but due to lack of space, I mainly focus on my Mitsubishi collection now:

KYOSHO 8083 1990 Honda NSX silver RHD , Kyosho 20th Anniversary - Scale18 1/18 Scale Diecast Model Cars, Since 1997 did u see my link before lol? I'd say to get the kyosho verson opposed to the AutoArt since its 1/3rd the price with arguably better details and working suspension!

I'm most likely going to go with the kyosho nsx given the price but the black autoart nsx is so sexy..

I just called wilkonson's and they have it for $91. Looks like you got the hookup
Oh well, silver will do until I can have enough funds for another NSX. Really want a Type R or a 02+ in Imola Orange

For those who are interested, Bellingham Costco always carries Maisto 1:18 scale die-cast models for $13 in the fall season (close to Christmas). I went last week and they were already in-stock.

The assortment this year consists of the 300C, different variations of the Wrangler, different variations of the Mustang, as well as the 2013 Viper and a few other generic cars I may have missed.

I'll probably pick up a Viper.

Costco Canada always have them too. Not sure about the price though...probably a little more around $16.99 or $17.99, I remember they are under $20.

I mainly have Maisto too. Can't afford them nicer stuff haha

Like Hot Wheels, Maisto quality has gone downhill.

There's a store in Metro but it's $$$$$

Picked up these a few weeks back at Costco:
Lamborghini LP-640 Superleggera
Lamborghini LP-560 Gallardo I think? Forgot to be honest.
Lamborghini Diablo
2009 Nissan GTR (White)
Alfa Romea 8C
Porsche Cayman

Anyone got a McLaren F1 for sale ?

Here's my small collection, all made by Hot Works. I'm pretty happy with the quality. I bought these about 7 years ago:

Top Secret & Nismo 350Z's


Nismo R34 Z-Tune & Junction Produce LS430


And my personal favourite of the bunch, a matte black 911 Turbo with matching TechArt kit. I'm not sure what scale it is, but it's bigger than the others.

Like many of you, I also used to have a bunch of 1:18s when I was a kid. Most of them are dismantled at this point haha.

I don't have a ton of 1:24 or 1:18 models, but I do have quite a few 1:64s from my childhood. Mostly Mattel.

They're a little dusty.



My childhood dream car..still in one piece.

I had a few of those Hot Works. I had the LS and the Zero Sports STI. Picked those up from Hong Kong for pretty cheap iirc.

All these Hot Works Japanese models are sick. Wonder if there's a place to get them locally without spending a shit load.
