Ace.  Except I gave him that set last month, and he gave me 401 for it.

Then he said if he ever gets a duplicate set, he'll hide it under his floorboards, convert to the Moonies, and buy a monkey named Archie and go on an adventure.

Haven't seen him since Friday.

Wouldn't it be better to buy a donkey named Archie?

Then he could ride it as he went off in search of adventures ...

He rode the monkey called Archie, I saw him pass the window.

An old uni buddy is forever posting pictures of action figures but mainly transformers on the book of the face.  So, last night I asked him how many he has.  He said, after selling a load and replacing them in the last twelve months, he has started to catalogue them but lost track during the sales and estimates he has one thousand.

Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.
I think Rascal should apologise for Wils - seriously!

After a bit of research, the toy car is about 56 years old from the colour of the grey tyres and the lack of the spare tyre modification

Picked up a VW golf toy car today, it seems to have some age to it, I will research it.
Also, a Hotwheels Marvel Avengers Batman car, new.

And some 1/32 plastic Romans, these are much bigger than what I am used to painting.  They have had the flash removed and undercoated

The MK1 Golf is No 210 by Majorette, a French company. Its about mid 70s production.

This week I also picked up a Britain's horse box, missing the doors unfortunately. 1979.

And

A couple of Hotwheels 1985 and 1990. The early model is very collectable.

EBay only allows 10 items per month to go on.  I'm going to be here for years trying to sell all these.

What you really need, Rascal, is a set of toy car transporters.  Then you could pile the cars onto them a few at a time, and claim they were one item ...

But what you really need, Rascal, is a big empty one ...
