I see the Tintin shop in London has stock of the 1st cars in the new 1/24th collection.

How many people will be getting these?

I already have all the 1/43 collection and I see this new 1/24 collection is also 70 cars which makes this a huge investment if you want the full collection.

Each car is £59.95 so the full collection is £4196.50!

I may buy the odd one or two but that will be it I think.

Just looked at the list on the Hachette website and they are only charging €39.99, that's quite a mark-up in London!

The difference between having, and not having, bricks-and-mortar premises and staff, and not factoring in postage and any taxes for the U.K. if you order direct, I imagine
Even looking at a few other on-line retailers on the continent gave prices between €50 and €75 (and I don't know if P&P was included), so the cost isn't that out of the ordinary.

But yes, the investment for a set is substantial!
