My R/C Yaris has arrived from HK! PICS

$20 from Ebay. Arrived in NY in 7 days.
It's a kit you assemble, not hard to do. Plastic is painted parts, not molded colored plastic. Nice dark charcoal metallic quality paint.Pretty nice quality too.
Uses AAA batts. though...
It actually works pretty good!

Same color?
Yeah, I've no beef with paying $20 for something I can't seem to find anywhere around here!
The stickers are very authentic, they stay on real good too.

Matchbox is like 1:64, so 1:43 is'nt a bad size.
They have some real nice BIG 1:18 (?) Yari on Ebay, but they want over $100 for them.
Are these from Ebay too?

Yeah, same color but I think a sticker or two may have fallen off. Dang Texas heat!

Echo_hrs, if you have a source of those Minichamps, I would be interested especially in the red one you posted (mine is a black 3dr, but that red looks kickass!). I have not seen them on eBay here and the Yaris diecast I have seen are waaaay overpriced!

It's a bummer as we used to live within a 2-hr drive of Minichamps' headquarters in Aachen, Germany when I was stationed in Belgium. I collect diecast motorcycle models and have several of theirs, but I never made it up there.

Cheers! M2

Haha I bought 2 of those R/C cars, plus a few of the Tomica diecast ones in the small boxes. I love my wee yarii.

Nice RC, auxmike. Now that's something I'd be proud to chase my little nephew around with in my driveway on a day-off

This one looks real good, what do you think?

http://model-hobby.com/toyota_yaris_...bd486ebdfe8c1a

for display only, though. I gotta say, I'm really tempted.

International Credit Card same as domestic: Visa, MC, AmEx, but there are fees for currency conversion, I bet. :(

I'm big into slot cars.....I'll be keeping my eye open for a Yaris someday. MINIs, and Fiat 500s, and Citroen C2s they've got but no Yaris yet. Something tells me I might not want to hold my breath on this.
