I considered buying one Mini miniature, but I couldn't find a red MCS with black roof. Guess I could buy a Red MC like the one in the top picture above my post...

If you know of a red MCS (with black roof), let me know

Toy Collecting

I really can't post how many I have -- I've been a collector for more than 45 years. It all started when my brother went to work for Mettoy in Swansea during the early 1960's! Mettoy is the company that produced Corgi Toys. I may be biased but I still think they are the best. The attached photo's were just taken with my new Olympus.

Are there any mini2ers that have bought models of the the new MINI yet? If so, would you upload some pictures?

I picked up a pair of red n blue remote controll MINIs a while back - not the most authentic on detail, but little kids go crazy when they come visit, trying to make them go where they want them to. Someplace around 4 years old they start to figure out how to drive them and quit picking them up to make them go the other way.

I started a thread on R56 models a few weeks back.

Did you say there's a dedicated forum on MINI2 now!!?

I should be collecting my chili red 1/18 scale R56 from Woodmans (Blackpool MINI/BMW dealer) today or early next week!

Got my R56 1/18.

Don't forget to ask for your MINI2 discount if ordering from Woodmans by the way.

Put it side by side with similar 1st gen model and I know there may be some errors in scale and detailing, but it's intereseting to note just how little (in my opinion) the overall dimensions seem to have changed. Sideways on and there are only a few visual clues that it's an all new car - the raised bonnet line/headlamps and the side indicator assembly being the biggist giveaways.

according to the MINI branded Urban Style catalogue there's just red, laser blue, lightning blue and dark silver at 1/18 scale.

There's a pepper white at 1/43 for £17.95 (before any 'if you ask nicely' discount!).

Like what's been mentioned on the thread I started a couple of weeks or so ago, I guess there's a chance that licensed (and cheaper!!) models may make it into the mainstream market soon. Hope so - I picked up a really good quality 1st gen model at Morrisons supermarket last week for 60p!!

I collect Matchbox 'Superfastcars' anything manufactured between 1969 -1983.

I also pick up 1 or 2 hotwheels if it's a mini (new or classic) or any of the rare treasure hunt models.

Lately been collecting the die cast models from Disney's Cars film. One or two of these are already rare and hard to find!

Mexico Male View DeadCanDanceR's Liquid Yellow & White 1st Gen MINI Cooper Profile
       
I recently found an amazing internet site! It is called GoMotorBids.com and the prices most of the models sell for is simply amazing. The sad thing is that they only ship to the US and Canada; the great thing was that I managed to have my Mexican credit card accepted and have them ship the models to my cousin's address in Texas!!!

I visited my cousin two weeks ago and was welcomed by some of the models that I got there (plus some others that I got at some other sites). It felt like Christmas!!! I've just added 48 new models to my collection!!!

48 new models at once - now that is a lot to have all at the same time

My favourite in my MINI model collection is the MINI CHALLENGE car in 1:18, made by Kyosho (I think it is) - that is beautifully made
