.....Scalextric catalogue update as one does I noticed that Scalextric have the exclusive licence for the Renault F1 cars.

Carrera have the exclusive licence for Ferrari F1 and SCX have the exclusive licence for Jaguar F1.

Now isn't this a sensible situation avoiding duplication.

You will note the omisions from the Scalextric line up. Gone are the Scalextric Jordan and Ferrari F1 cars. Also missing are the old style DTM Opels.

You will also be slightly puzzled by the new shape Subaru as the car shown is the Makinen/Lindstrom car but the title under the picture refers to the Solberg/Mills car which is being included in a limited edition set for the Scandanavian market.

Also the blue Camaro Nr 9 is missing.

Grab these cars while you can as once they are gone they are gone. Are any of the cars that are missing future collectibles?

a collectable will be defined by the popularity..

if a car sells out quick, you can guarentee if it is not a sport model it wont be collectable however if a car sells in low numbers and is withdrawn from production after a year or so because of this then yes, it will make a collectable.

another deciding factor is how many have been raced to boogery and can only jsut turn a wheel.

I think in all honesty there are very few 'future collectables' being made now.

Nearly ALL are made in huge numbers, the word 'limited' meaning next to nothing as to many folk are buying them as an investment - 'BAD MOVE' !

The reason some of the 60s and 70s cars are so valuable is partly due to the fact that production runs were so much smaller and the cars were used / raced, broken and thrown away.

If you are buying anything but the exclusive hand made stuff to store and prospect with in future years..you are going to be disappointed folks.
