TOPIC: GS 12 versions

GS 12 versions 4 years, 3 months ago #1

Gold Boarder
Hello,


I do own a GS 12 since some years now. Because the old racing cars did have too much wear, I replaced them with those ones with driver controlled steering - the ones from the second version.


By chance I recognized, that my GS 12 has the polystyrene insert from version 2 anyhow - so by chance I put in the cars which should be there.


But my box outer is definitely a version 1.


Am I right:


there was a version:


one with the non driver controlled steering


two with driver controlled steering and a sticker on the original outer box but new polystyrene


three with new outer box and new polystyrene


???????


By the way - have never seen the backside of version two and three.. can somebody illustrate?


Best regards


Wolfgang

The shown polystyrene is of the second set, as are the models. Why do you think your outer box is a version one?


The set was done in two versions. Here a picture of the first set, with non steering racers. As you can see also the VW and cart swapped places.

Hello,


I have seen GS12 version two to come along either with a red sticker or a new front design


of the outer box.


I am afraid, I have a mix of two versions...


Best regards

Your pictures do not work. This is revised front, version 2.

Hello,


sorry for maybe not being precise enough:


Here is what I would call version 1.1 - a version one, converted to version 2 by Corgi Toys.


My question would be:


How rare and valuabel are the single version?


"1.0" (first version of cars, first artwork)


"1.1" (second version of cars, first artwork plus sticker)


"1.3"(second version of cars, new artwork)


I found some descriptions in TGBOC - but explanation is a bit confusing.


As I have never ever seen such a sticker, Corgi used from time to time for their


"New" messages - are they of the kind of being removable, or would an attempt have


left traces on the artwork.?


In case one, I could have a proper match between inner and outer - but just with the sticker having been removed...


Best regards


Wolfgang

Hi,


First of all, the last picture you showed has some extra figures/mechanics. They do not bleong to the set, but the Carrera should be in, definitely.


About a set in general, a complete set in reasonable state goes from 500 euros up to 700 euros. I do not know the price for a specific set wll be.

Re: GS 12 versions 4 years, 3 months ago #14

Hello,


Not sure about the mechanics:


TGBOC on page 232 states (regarding content of GS 12):


"3 Pit mechanics, plastic hay hales and 16 bollards."


Also the pit mechanics are illustrated on page 233 / plate 455 in the TGBOC...


Best regards


Wolfgang
