Hi all

Just in case you missed Richardtheforth's post in "Bargains" here's one not to miss if you're thinking of going digital. Link
- £12 p&p to France (& Europe?).

PS I don't have any shares in Amazon ... yet!

Hi all, first post here... could be 'of many'..

I've not played scalextric for 35+ years
since I had one as a child..
And I've not really looked at them since too much.. But now I have a young son it seemed a good time to look again..

We actually bought a small 'micro' set for Christmas - but one car quickly broke and wouldn't work any more. Took it back and they didn't have a replacement. I wasn't too disappointed to be honest because, although it was good fun, I realised it couldn't compete with the proper track etc.
So I started looking and stumbled on the Play price of £335 for the Platinum set. This was more than we were thinking of paying - but when I looked at what was in the box it seemed fantastic value for money... Anyway, I then saw the Amazon price of £300
but it had finished and was up to £466 again. I 'ummed' and 'aahed' over the Play price and then it disappeared and is no longer for sale there.

Amazon price seems to have dropped today to £399...
My question is, for anyone who may know, is was the £300 - £335 pretty much a one-off and it is normally £399+? Is the lower price likely to re-appear? I appreciate nobody has a crystal ball but if someone knows this wasn't the first time it's been at such a price then obviously there's more hope of a repeat..

I really couldn't justify £399 as a 'first set' at the minute..
I didn't appreciate seeing the sets for sale on ebay from new sellers - as 'unwanted Christmas presents'. Come on, gimme a break..

Thanks all,

Thanks for the replies guys - much appreciated.
I did see the £399 price at modelzone but that is more than I'd pay (despite fully appreciating its value!) at the moment.
Thanks TR7_Driver, I've put a notice on it at the camelcamelcamel site.

Let's see...
