Yes, it does look good & simple enough to set up & pack away. Which was the big problem with the old Scalextric, that spent most of it's time shoved under the bed in it's box. Just don't fancy a divorce just after Xmas. X)

In what way? They were designed by Harald Belker, they look good.

I suspect a lot of these may be up for sale after Xmas on eBay, pushing the price below the £100 lowest we've seen in the shops. With £100 of track (6 corners and 4 straights) it's a good way to get more track on the cheap (sell on the additional bits like cars to make money back).

I had my eye on this since launch and finally succumbed at £100 on Black Friday. It seems to be considerably more fun with 4 players, but at £50 per car, you've already doubled your expenditure before you've got any additional pieces or accessories.

If you can stomach the costs, 4 cars, a jump, the collision piece and a bunch of extra track will help convert this reasonably mediocre starter pack into the awesome game this has the potential to be. Some adults may have limited patience for this type of thing but with the right crowd it will be very entertaining.

I also jumped at the black Friday £100 price drop having heard very positive reviews on it over the cheap version. Was really impressed with the size and weight of the box when it arrived too. An impressive, much wanted gift for my son

I can't imagine people selling this on cheap in a hurry to be honest with you, not many come up on eBay at a bargain price due to the fact most kids seem to play with it long term. I know my son does.

The cars are expensive but no different to how a console is sold at a loss in order to make profit on the games. Considering the tech inside one car I think the price isn't too bad compared to an ordinary slot car

Edit: or are you saying buying a 2nd starter pack is a good way to add extra track and 2 extra cars? If so yes I agree but that would leave little to put on eBay :D

I based that on thinking a lot of people would be gifting a £100 set and this being one of those things where people will may get bored quickly. that's not a criticism of the product, just a view on the general public and potential recipients' attitude. I've had friends go from interest/excitement to apathy in the time it takes to put together the track (i.e. minutes), and others drop out after one cursory turn.

I'm not sure of their costs and margins, but if they did more deals like a collision piece and 2 cars for £100 to reward loyal customers, I think sales would boost and overall enjoyment of the game amongst owners would rise.

I made an error in the original calculation - you can't have more than one starter piece so you only get 3 straights out of an additional starter pack. This still gives you £90 of track based on the RRP of £20 for corner and speed kits, each with just 2 pieces of their respective tracks. If, like me, you don't want two of the same cars, you can sell skull and shock (going rate on ebay for a quick sale is £25-30 each before fees), plus someone somewhere may want the tyre cleaner, starter piece and charger. It appears some people have done this with the last sale.

For me the biggest issue of buying extra cars is that there's rarely a deal to be had, they sell Bigbang and Guardian as a set for £70 but all others are full price. I think if they offered any 2 cars at £70 they'd sell a lot more

I didn't mind having the same cars, as it meant you got 4 player action but did manage to sell them to a friend when we bought big bang/Guardian set.

I think an ideal opportunity would be if they sold starter kits with 2 different cars for a change it'd certainly help out loyal customers a lot.

Edit: new anki update with added shop where you can spend in game currency on upgrades :D

what do you think of big bang? i think i'd get frustrated with the reported slow speed
i've never seen that set.

i saw the update. going to fire up the game later today with some new track layouts, will see what the new features are like

amazon.de is doing a prime exclusive (and has to be german prime!!) - €40 a car and €24 for the collision set. they would have £87 off me right now if that deal was being repeated here :(

My daughter wanted bigbang (something to do with it being a K-pop group?) so she bought it, the speed is OK, or at least worth it for the extra firepower but it's horrible to have on the track if you have the jump track.

That's a good deal on Amazon.de wonder if we something similar over here before Christmas

The extra straights and corners will give bigger and better tracks, if space is tight the cross over makes it more compact but still interesting.

I like the anki deal myself
