Just released, 1/18 - caddy cyclone in BLACK?!! Open top is nice, but how can you milk the same moulds for get more ca$h?? Simple! Just invent your own color combos for One Off cars!

I admit it does look great in these colors, but I would have preferred them to model the first version (high fins) with bubble top and current release (low fins) sans roof..
So typical Minichamps!!!

Paulius, you took the words right out my mouth...

Hoping they will stick only to 1/18 for these atrocities..

The Lincoln Futura in the red movie version would be nice. But they won't do that, you'll see... ;)

Not exactly an industry first as many others, including companies who manage the impressive feat of being even more overpriced than PMA do it.

You only have to wave a concept at Looksmart and suddenly it's available in a whole range of fantasy colours....

Fantasy colours are largely the preserve of the higher priced manufacturers with LS, Eidolon and FrontiArt all making numerous hues available. By contrast the likes of Spark don't provide enough colour options even when there are numerous real colours waiting to be modelled. Ive bought a few fantasy colours where I really don't like the real thing but generally I like my models to be accurate replicas of the real thing.

That's a Bentley that will certainly be in my collection! I saw the real car at the Blackhawk Collection, and I loved it! ;)

Assume this puts it in line with their Mullin Collection pieces. And at that price for 999 units I think I will wait.

80, 90, 100 euros and above will be the price of these no matter what....they are well done, beautiful models and if they sold until now like that my guess is they won't go down with the prices....may be up...

Was talking with the importer of Minichamps on Friday. Seems that new resin F1 cars from Minichamps will retail in NZ at least 50% dearer than the price of their Spark competitors. Suffice to say there will be no 2015 onwards minichamps F1 1:43 coming to NZ.

Have watched the pricing of Minichamps get more and more expensive over recent years but here is the first case where I have been able to make a direct comparison between MC and a competitor and it just beggars belief that they think they can get away with this ripping off of the collector.
