I'm assuming you mean things like this

Check the *similar items* under all that. There should be a bunch. Or at least ones he might enjoy.

Yeah I have looked about on ebay, they seem like ones an adult would collect not a 5 year old would play if you get me.

Hard one to call. I was looking more along the lines of the matchbox type of toys...

Thanks yep im a dad, proud one at that ha.

Yep was delighted when I seen the first one... thought i might even just get that and the rx7 and maybe a civic or impreza that looked the part can't justify the price of some of the more expensive ones the 5 car set wouldn't have actually been too bad but its sold.

Must keep the eyes on ebay so thought there may have been some specialist site that sold them google is showing up very little on it either.

You'd think so but they're pretty hard to come by.

My bad. Wasn't sold when I first put it up there. I'm not a tease.


And I doubt you'll dig it, but here's like the last thing remotely close to what you're looking for (that's not on eBay.)

Suggestion. If you buy from them, maybe use Pay pal or Prepaid debit card. When I buy from sites I'm not..familiar with, that's usually my first POA..

Thanks very much sorry I put it in the wrong section...

I managed to narrow him down so he said he just wanted the trueno and fd3s. I told him santa would find
them very hard to do lol. Ordered two from malaysia on ebay last night 1/72 scale hopefully they turn out ok!

and thanks very much for all yer help much appreciated..... maybe no harm to add to this as people find them they seem to be VERY collectable.
