Both great classics. These are really nice. I will have to look out for them.

And only 20 different types made, you have 7/8 out 20, so 18 more to find

There were three others there, a Ford Crown Victoria Taxi, Nissan Terrano & Range Rover Vogue but not exciting enough for me

Porsche Spyder, the graphics on the packaging look cheap and nasty and the opening rear has a large gap, I expect better at the premium price, NZ$10

At that price I would have waited until more came out. I would not buy that with the huge gap in it.

I have seen the Moving Parts version and it has the same gap so it looks like no choice as I cant imagine Mattel spending money to correct it

That is too bad and your probably right. They already have millions made. Should have been picked up before production started but these days the quality control in almost everything these days is way down. I can't even find a decent T-Shirt that won't wear out in about 6 or 8 months. I used to get them for under $15.00 from Sears or Woodward's or other larger stores and they lasted years. For those who don't know, Woodward's and Sears and no longer here in Canada. As of October 13, 2017, Sears in Canada was no more. It is now in the USA only and was originally called Sears Roebuck Stores.

My hope is they make a non-opening parts version in the regular issue line and I agree about current quality in clothes too
