I'm just scooping up as many as possible. This 300 is a maisto but
for $10 it's worth it.

It's $14, can't really go wrong. More detailed than their E60 M5 for sure..

I used to collect diecast cars for a while. Still have some Hot Wheels, but for the most part I just usually picked up Jada 1:18 from Wal-Mart whenever I'm shopping. They're cheap and still look pretty cool. Most are currently stored but I do have a couple of neat old school VW's out on display still (Dubcity series).

Would like to pick up a couple of Tamiya models at some point, though.

Thanks. But the price only works out to $3-5 difference.

How's the detail between Tamiya and Aoshima though?

I saw 2 or 3 red s2000 maisto ones at the Costco in downtown Vancouver. Costco had light blue/silverish and blue M5's, Audi RS4/S4 Cabriolet, Beetle, one red R35 Skyline, 1 black Mustang, and one older classic car.

I like the little Hot Wheels Comic Con exclusive one with the flames coming off the tire treads... that's a great diorama!
