I have recently posted Type R for sale again and my stock is running out fast. Orders from local and overseas. So I would like to chip in my 2cents on this situation.
Also like everybody else, I am trying to get my hands on the Limited Edition with rubber tyres. So far my top sellers are Civics, JDSF, Evo Limited and believe it Lamborghini (for USA market!).
If you look at Ebay.com trend, the price of Civic Type R had gone up a lot. My co-collectors said perhaps this is due to shortage internationally as the demand is high. So your diecast has gone up in value!
My friend in Singapore recently showed me a truck which cost a couple of dollars that he had kept since he was a little kid and now the asking price is a whooping USD$100. So keep your "hot cars", your ROI will come in the later years.
What I like about these diecasts are that it just felt like trading stocks, unit trust and commodities. Buy now, sell later for higher returns but make sure you keep the some of the gems for huge return. Just like when the stock market CI was at 600, I remember a chap saying ahh too expensive, cannot commit into the some mutual funds, which the rest of us did buy. Then the market hit 1200, dont care what fund you have, you make the $.
Well, before Sept 16, there may be a change in Government where Pakatan Rakyat may takeover. We always joke that the co-collectors may have to take a break from Tomica and concentrate on stocks. Mr. Lee if you happen to read this..time to buy that Ebbro once the knee jerk reaction comes in the market and we make the $. Ok stopping my blabbling. Here are some pictures of the Civic.
The Honda Civic Type R is a very high powered and strong performing, new version of the Honda Civic. Civic Type R continues to become a popular automobile alternative to the much more expensive cars in the world today.
