VERY impressive! How long have you been collecting? Where did you score the micro-machine ones?

It has been a few years off and on. My sister bought me the green one and I found a seller off an eBay listing that had the rest of them.

Mike, wow that is an awesome collection.

Do you have a display case?

I had a really nice display case for my GI-Joes and various collections, it was something I could look at everyday, until the wife said the case would look better in the house with her stuff...

Would be cool to have a presentation at one of our meetings on your collection, IMO.

The the super rare Aoshima one in 1/8" scale. Hold onto your wallet, the body alone tends to fetch $400 or more because they are popular to customize.

I'm not ready to move into RCs but I have been watching prices...

the super wheelie one is $700 (asking) on eBay...

The best price for the Tamiya 1/10 Land Cruiser 40 CR-01 Kit TAM58405 is RC Planet at $349.95

Tamiya 1/10 Toy Land Cruisr 40 RTR:CC01 TAM57810 - $339.95 (this is cheaper other places because it isn't the ready to run version with the radio).

$700?! Wow...those have gone up. I think I only spent about $100 on mine, but that was easily a decade ago.

I looked long and hard for an aoshima skynet....needle in a haystack. They are sweet though, they are HUGE in comparison to the others and way detailed. Couple that body with one of the RC4WD frames, and you have one sweet truck.

Krikey, I just looked up some of these on ebay. Spendy. Mike do you have duplicates you want to sell?

You need a few big glass cases or shelves to show these.

treerootCO
11-20-2013, 09:19 AM
eBay mostly. Some of the sellers contact me directly now. The internet is broken...something changed over the last few years so all those searches no longer turn up the cool stuff they used to. If I had to guess, all the one person webpages got bullied out. Even Amazon no longer lists the common stuff like matchbox and hotwheels like they used to.

I have a few duplicates but surprisingly, not as many as I thought.

I'll probably run an article in TT as soon as I can find a Majorette with a jetski.

I need someone to tell me what to buy. The 'kits' don't come with all the parts needed to make them go.

Here is a cool trick I use on all my toys...:hill: new 200 pullback in the video

9U3jR6ir1iw

Lifehack I learned from my dad. The folks at Home Depot discovered this air freshener is very effective at removing the glue left behind from price tags, labels, stickers, etc. Goo Gone and some of the other citrus products out there can melt the plastic. This stuff just works. I collect a lot of older toys and have never had it damage the plastic or paint. Try it for yourself, you too will be amazed.

That yellow CC01 in your picture above is fully assembled. If it's like this one, and it should be, all you need is a radio, battery, and charger.

Decent 2 channel radios can be had at Colpar or Hobby Town, or you can order on line. http://www.horizonhobby.com/surface-transmitters/dx2e-2-channel-dsmr-surface-radio-system-with-free-sr201-receiver-spm2322

If you plan on running a scale winch on there, you will need a 3 channel radio and receiver though.

Stores like Tower hobbies run "combos" where you don't need to know anything and they ship it all. I prefer the local guys though. Colpar is very helpful.

The yellow one is ready to run with everything. The black and red ones need other things to run. I'll contact Colpar to see what the minimum needed is.

Mike, I need a smurf blue 40, I bought one for my oldest for Christmas a few years ago and always wanted to hang it from my 40s rear view mirror. I look at Wally World most times when I go through, do you have a source for them? Another store or online?

Thanks

These are HO scale so smaller than matchbox but this would be pretty cool and a closer match to T854

If you want the blue matchbox... one is a bit darker and the other is a bit lighter than T854. I do know a guy who has touch up paint though. If you just want to paint one, then grab the tan one from Target.

New additions to the Land Cruiser toy collection... The 200 series ones are 1:32 scale, make noise when you open the doors, wind up when you pull them back, and are $10.

I love it when the "new additions" are larger than my entire collection.

Heck yes for the win!

Looks like you should buy a barn and go full hoarder. I mean, shouldn't you have 20 or more full cruisers stashed?

You find me a barn, and I will buy it. It needs to be in Weld or Larimer county with taxes under $1000 per year.

House, barn, land. Done. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/290-E-Gandy-Ave-Keenesburg-CO-80643/14085939_zpid/

I have a great banker, and my wife is an agent. :)

Or how about a project?

No project and an annual CRP agreement already in place that offsets your taxes.

Here's a crazy model....and an even crazier person that built it. Creep factor is HIGH on this one, so take that as a friendly suggestion to go outside and socialize with live people more. lol. ;)
