    Never considered myself a Ford guy, but when it comes to HWs I can't get enough of them

    In that case shouldn't a car from Malaysia with perfect tampo be worth as much as a variation/error? I mean they're just as rare :lol:

    It's obvious Mattel is just being greedy as labor and machinery costs in their Malay factory must be a heck a lot cheaper then the one in Thailand to justify the reason they are ok with producing half ass products

    I think it has something to do with where it's made. All MBXs (as far as I know) are made in Thailand, and so are the HW Pop Culture cars which have good tampo most of the time. Unlike the Japan Historics which were made in Malaysia and some had horrible tampos on them :crazy:

    Fresh bin out in the middle of the day and not a single super... Gotta love Walmart employees... At least I found everything I wanted out of those cases

    I got a few BTTFs and Mystery Machines and thought I could make a profit but after seeing what they were going for on eBay I ended up wondering if returning them was a better option... I have no clue what collectors want so I should stay away from selling for now They have a huge following as...

    1/64 Model Collectors Thread

    Being fairly new to the hobby I tend to think that whatever is being hyped up it's valuable will make me a profit so I would buy an extra or two hoping to sell it. Guess I won't be doing that anymore and stick to my original plan: only buy stuff you like regardless of hype

    So is it a fair statement to say it's very hard to make a profit selling HWs? Well except for supers and the likes

    You get to buy a HW with that profit so it's a win in my book 👍

    I bought a Ford Galaxie today and after I cracked it open I realized this was an error as it came unriveted from factory. Just out of curiosity, what would an error like this be worth on eBay?

    FINAL ENTRY Thank you Kyle for running PMC for long as you have and thanks to Nathan for stepping in as I'm sure the transition will be seamless 👍 In other news my PS3 won't start so I'm gonna replace the memory card and see if it resolves the problem otherwise I'm afraid that's it for...

    There are a few GTs being sold on eBay for about $30, and says it's being shipped from the US. Did these guys buy from a Malaysian seller meaning stolen goods?

    Found some rubber tires on an old NASCAR at a swap meet and since there's a Goodyear logo on the rear quarter panel I thought it would go well together
