|2017 Auto World on eBay|
You say “Auto World”, I think two things:
1) Best 1:64 this side of Tomica Limited Vintage. Great American car model choices that compliment TLV’s focus on Japan and Europe, and comparable quality to boot.
2) I want more! Store distribution has been spotty at best, and it is hard to complete sets. As great as they are, I wish they were easier to get. And I would love to see more assortments.
Of course Round 2 has their hands in Johnny Lightning and Racing Champions as well, but Auto World takes it for me. Freshly stocked – new – Auto World is such a treat. I wish it happened more often.
My thought is that Point #2 will improve the more we see new stuff. Obviously the more we buy, the more likely we will see new stock. So my admonition to you is to check those AW pegs more often, and don’t be afraid to grab a couple.
And open them!!! The packaging is nice, but you buy Auto World for the models and models only. They even give you a box to put the models in.
With all that said, Auto World is going to give you reason to look. They have been previewing the first assortment of 2017, and it is beautiful.
Muscle, wagons, sedans, it all looks so good. For me though, the treat HAS to be this one:
The ’63 Dodge Polara is a stunner. Totally along the lines of one of those must-haves that TLV throws out occasionally. I just want to put it next to my TLV stock Skylines.
I did find some eBay sellers who have them all, and you can see both of the first 2017 assortments here:
