I'll let everyone know that I'm still looking for more to come in. Maybe next time I'm down I'll have another chat and just get them to call me when they come in! Even the VW Beetle ones have been sold.

Love those book ends. Good find.

Arrggghhhh , they're breeding ......

Picked up these from the local Australian Geographic store today , I've taken the photo with the small ones Flute sent so people can get the idea of size . I bought their entire stock which was only 3 unfortunately but as can be seen I have one tiny red/white one spare if anyone can't find them . They were $2.95 each .
Image

They also have another of the O's and X's sets if anyone's after one , the same mini's only smaller again than teh small ones I got today , $19.95 if anyones interested .

That's the same name as is on the box and the detail looks the same , how much have they quoted for the rally one ? There's a chemist here has the basic red one for $60 but then a gift shop had it for $39.95 so the prices vary a bit :? Haven't found the rally one yet though .

Just checking Sports 850, are the little ones I sent you the big ones in your picture above? If so thats makes the tiny ones really tiny! It also means I now have to find them!

That's right Flute , the little ones are around an inch long and the ones in the O's and X's are smaller again so whoever came up with the idea has made a hell of a lot of different sizes ....
