I did that for about 9 months. The Ken Block one has turned out to be, for whatever reason, as rare as rocking horse poo. I don't know if there was an accidentally short run, or if it was just insanely popular, but I wound up paying retail on it from slot32.de. But even they are showing it as sold out now. Perhaps Avant Slot should take notice and do a second run of this particular livery. In this case, it won't kill the second hand market for them because everybody seems to be hanging on to the ones they have.
But yes, it costs nothing to put a search on Ebay and have them email you if one turns up. Just don't rely on it as the sole avenue for procuring one.
I had the Ken Block Impreza on my want list, but as I can't find any seller with stock I decided on the "Tokyo Motor Show Concept" version and I'll put some fantasy additional livery on it. I haven't actually bought one yet, I was going to wait until later in the year. ........Or I could possibly go for the Pastrana one - it would save my having to do the fantasy bit.
Does anyone think it might be prudent to buy Avant Slot S14 Imprezas sooner rather than later? I'd rather not have to compromise by having to settle on the N14. Maybe I should buy an Impreza this month, rather than the R5 maxiTurbo I was planning on. ............ But then I may find I can't get the Renault I really want.
Yeah, it's so bizarre. The Solberg and Block ones disappeared within weeks of being released, but the Pastrana one is still kicking around most retailers. It's not like Pastrana isn't well liked. He's a bigger loony than Block, but goes head to head with Tanner Foust when it comes to being just such a super nice guy. And it's a fun livery. I'd truly be interested to know how big the production run was for each of these cars.
It looks as though the Ojeda team have Avant Slot as a sponsor, which may explain why they chose that particular GrpN livery. I'd love to see a plain white kit version of this shell as there are so many cool GrpN liveries that could be put on it.
