Diecast Collectors(Your Collection, News, etc.)

Since they closed the old site, we lost our thread. So, here's a new one. :D

I'll start with the subject: New Raced Win Displays

Image

In case you didn't know(or don't collect 'em) the "Raced Wins" come in a display case this year.(see pic) I(personally) am not diggin' em. I mean, I think they look pretty cool, but I have mine layed out individually...so, the case would throw the whole layout off. Now, I'm sure you can remove them from the cases,(I figure it's the same screws that they use to hold'em in the 'regular' styrofoam packaging) but, it's just more usless waste...in my case. Unless those aren't as big as the old ones used to be?(the Revell's came in 'huge' boxes)

Anybody else have any thoughts?

I don't like the case I like to display mine in my big glass display case. I can't wait for the mobile 1car to add to the collection!

The cases are only for "Raced Win" cars...the regular standard paint and special paint scheme cars will come in the regular styrofoam packaging.

I just went ahead and ordered the Elite "Raced Win" of the Oreo car today. I don't buy too many Elites 'cause I don't feel the extra detail is worth the $30 upcharge. But, these "Raced Win" cars, with the case are $79.99...so, that puts them at just $10 less than the Elites. And with the Elites I don't have to worry about the case. ;)

Re: Diecast Collectors(Your Collection, News, etc.)

Haven't decided if I like the case or not. I think it's good they want to do something different, just not sure that is worth the cost. I have 45-50 Ryan 1/24's plus probably just as many 1/64's, a load of Tony 1/64's plus a couple 1/43 protos and miscellaneous items, and I don't know how much else that I've collected. Not enough room for all of it anymore so I really need to thin it out (i.e., sale if you're looking for anything ). Eventually will get some pictures up here, but for now I have my Ryan collection on Photobucket.
Go Ryan!
( OK, Tony & Danica too )

You don't have to resize gallery pics, as long as they're under 1000X800...which is a pretty good sized pic. I just loaded a 660X448 pic(which is in the 'standard' size range) with no problem. ;)
