Ford Shelby GT 500 1:43 Scale Model Kit £2.00 @ Morrisons Instore

4
Spotted these in the Leigh store, but looks to be a national clearance at this price. Official Ford branded model kit, decent size model kit for £2. Normally about a fiver. Think it'd look really nice…

They added some new lines yesterday. RE: the post about getting out more, fresh air is good as it exercise (and I'd recommend both as one of the best things you can do to improve your health), but on a cold winters night that's not always practical.

I built models with my father, the skills I learnt as a kid doing that have translated very nicely to DIY nowadays and as a result I rarely have to pay trades people to undertake work for me. So for kids I see no harm in these, they're quite educational, as is the history behind some of the planes. For an adult (who spends most of their day in front of a PC for work) not looking at a screen of some variety is quite refreshing I'd imagine.

No, the entire Airfix business is a work of fiction, pretending to sell model kits.
What I meant is, you should all get out more.
Because going on the Internet to try and be a smart ass is the pinnacle of your busy and fulfilling social life?
I think you were trying to be the smart ass with your retort to my initial comment. So sit down sunshine.


So you felt the need to insult everybody else also? I'm not sure what your issue is, in an age where millions of people sit on the couch all day shooting Russians in the face on Call of duty etc, this kind of hobby that teaches some genuine skills and even social interaction should probably be encouraged rather than mocked.

Anybody fancy reviving our youth and having a race on the floor? we can make our own brum brum noises or I can play a cd hehe
I owned a Mark 1 XR2 back in the early 90's. It was my first decent car after a couple of Minis (the proper real ones, not the BMW fakes). I loved it and it was a good car when compared to what else was around at the time.
Moved on to a 205 GTI which of course was way more fun...
A family man now with an SUV. Expensive and boring :(
I learned to drive in one of these, probably a smaller engined one. I remember my driving instructor telling me that the car was great for learners because it could drive uphill in first without any throttle at all. I passed first time but was never keen on buying one, in fact I hated the horrible tin can construction. I soon after bought a brand new car, an Austin Maestro, as recommended by Autocar & "Which" magazine.

Well things change ya know and the Fiesta did improve vastly after the passage of many years and umpteen total redesigns. This model though is of the crap tin can original and probably made of as much quality steel as the full size one had, so in that respect it is HOT!

Has anyone tried this with normal printer paper, how did it go?

I think I do have photo quality paper, can I use that instead?


Photo Quality Paper is very much 'similar' in structure to that of Thin Card, &/or Stiff Paper? .. not quite 100% the same to perhaps get the same 'desired effect'? .. but I'd say you'd be say nearer 90% there?, so its near enough?.

So I dont see as to why not?. :-)

I saw these on display at an expo I attended recently. They look like they're good, high quality figures. They look nice on display.

They're not as daft as they seem Nintendo recently..building this into the Wii U gamepad with no need for an add on. Should be a nice little cash cow for them. I don't mind Nintendo making money this way if it's good enough for Skylanders etc. At least the money is going to a genuinely innovative company who make the best games around. I've been critical of Wii U in every other post I've made, but fair play to Nintendo here!
There's already 2 different Mario figures in the pictures on the first page... And there's pretty much no information about how they'll work with the different games so you'd be crazy to pay this much for them now. Maybe once more information is released they'll be worth it, but right now I don't see why you'd want to pay £12.50 for these just to have a slightly more powerful Smash Bros. fighter

The madness will begin when they release the Pokémon characters.

I can just imagine Toys R us getting queues through the whole retail park so that someone can get them to fleabay

There's already Pokemon figures like this that go with the Pokemon Rumble game.
Loving the look of these, will go nicely with my complete Disney Infinity set! Don't worry about the prices, they'll be 3 for £20 in supermarkets by Christmas :)

edit for price comparison on mentioned games:
NBA 2K13 Wii U=£49.99 | xbox 360=£49.99 | PS3=£29.99
ACIV Wii U=£19.99 | X1=£54.99 | PS4=£54.99 | xbox 360=£15.49 | PS3=£54.99
Puddle Wii U=£6.29 | xbox 360=£6.75 | PS3=£7.99 | PS4=£5.79 (PSV unknown)

It is a lot cheaper and a lot more beneficial to sell a virtual copy of a game. Once a game is on the eshop, the cost of getting it there, is the same whether they sell a hundred copies, or a million. Producing a million copies of a physical game costs a lot more than producing a hundred copies.
It always benefits a company to sell virtual products over physical ones. Yet the prices on the eshop don't reflect that... why is it cheaper to buy a physical copy than to buy a digital version on the eshop? That doesn't make sense
Yes, I think most of us would agree that we would like to see digital copies be cheaper. But you cannot target nintendo on this- famously microsoft and sony release new digital games at high prices. Battlefield 4, a multiplatform game from 7 months ago, costs £54.99 on PS4 and X1. It's £59.99 on PS3 and also has a £39.99 premium pass.
So is this complaint fair in a thread about nintendo's relatively unique NFC figures? (Which are definitely physical only)

Going back to profit margin, there is more to costing than simply marginal costs per unit. Take for example- nintendo develops, tests, and releases the next big Zelda game. It's digital only, so they save on printing discs. So then can they release it with no costs? No. Even before profits (which you might have noticed, they haven't been getting much of lately), they need to account for the development costs, marketing costs, admin (head office) costs, capital costs, taxes, and...

Suppose the game is 10GB, since many of the other retail games are 5-20. Suppose the game sells 2million copies (a fraction of previous entries)- that gives us a nice simple figure approximately in the region of 20petabytes. Do you really think Nintendo can push this out across the world at a respectable speed with no distribution costs while remaining the only current generation console which doesn't charge separately for online?

I agree with the eshop pricing problem. NBA 2k13 for £49.99 as a digital download, or NBA 2k13 for £4.99 from Amazon? Hmm...
jsty3105
To be fair, there have been some pretty decent eShop prices for full retail downloads recently - ACIV is now permanently at £19.99 and the average retail price for that was around £15-17 (aside from TheGameCollection's flash deal). Several other titles have received permanent price cuts as well like Puddle, Zombi U, and Rayman Legends
edit for price comparison on mentioned games:
NBA 2K13 Wii U=£49.99 | xbox 360=£49.99 | PS3=£29.99
ACIV Wii U=£19.99 | X1=£54.99 | PS4=£54.99 | xbox 360=£15.49 | PS3=£54.99
Puddle Wii U=£6.29 | xbox 360=£6.75 | PS3=£7.99 | PS4=£5.79 (PSV unknown)

As said, this won't be new from shambolic Grainger Games, they open all Nintendo stuff and take the Club Nintendo code out. Don't know how they haven't been shut down for it

I love Mario and I got this cheapish (£33) using a very code (25 off 50). If I could do it again I wouldn't buy it. The extra money just ain't worth the figurine. My advice would be just to buy the normal game for 35. Just advice. This is a good price if you really want the figurine

I sold my figure on ebay for £35!!!

A good price, but it's one of the weaker Lego games. Even my son was bored of it after a few short hours, and he loves the Lego games (and the film). This game was clearly rushed to market.

We traded it in.

2 for £21, 3 for £30, 4 for £40 or 5 for £45

Still getting your average price of £10 for those who don't know where to look. When i see a large selection for the likes of £8 each i will class as a deal but £9 or £10 is the going price

Sometimes makes you wonder how limited this editions really are ?
I paid £45 for this on release.

I've never quite understood why people buy these so-called 'collectors editions'. Is it me or are they just 'collections of tat'? What in heavens name are you going to do with a plastic spaceship?!

Sometimes, the "tat" they come with is actually quite nice - Take the 2009 Amazon exclusive for example.
Solid metal - pure bliss. It's also worth quite alot now too.

Good to see there are alternatives, those options would not have been eligible to be posted on hukd as a deal though. Useful info for those interested.

These prices are ridiculous.

You can get pretty much all of these figma and much more using sites like Amiami, Yesasia, Hobbylink Japan and Good smile.
For example, Iron man costs £54 plus the unknown p&p. Whereas Amiami it's £37 plus £6 p&p, with chance of £13 customs charge, which would still make it cheaper.

If that's too stressful go with Yesasia, who has inflated prices but never customs charges and FREE p&p, they usually give you a $5 voucher for next purchase after too.

I use Amiami & Yes Asia, Hobbylink Japan has a v. high chance of customs charge.

Thanks for the advice - I was looking into Figma/Nendoroid figures. Of the websites you mentioned, which is the most reliable you'd say?

I would go for Yesasia if you don't want hassle or customs charges, but they do cost a bit more.
They're all reliable though, never had any issues, we buy a lot of figma and gundam kits from these sites.

The images from Ubisoft are likely from the original sculpt by McFarlane, so they will be of highest in painting, the original sculpt is then used as a reference to create the mass produced figure which then has a much cheaper finish as some of the parts will be coloured plastics with only extra details painted.

If you want figures like the original image you will need to pay a lot more money!!

You can get some quite nice cheap figurines also, these are good for the price. If you are a model painter you will know you can touch these up with your own paints and then seal them.

good call but surely thats false advertising
a picture should represent the product for sale
clearly different materials and finish

Very cheap malleable plastic. The clothes look good though, but it's certainly is not premium.
