Where can you buy them for $3. I paid $12 shipped to my door

I figured they went for at least $10....

Have you seen any silver/black F4is?

Umm look at Wal*mart, Target, TRU. The Hotwheels are $2.99 and the Miasto is $1.99. The Kids Kollection, made by Miasto is also $1.99. I dont think there is a silver black F4 yet. I have a Red F4, Yellow F4, Orange F4, Blue/Red F4

more details in the Miasto and a lower price. But the Hotwheels uses a bit more metal and are better for a destructive kid like mine.

I prefer the Miasto as they look more realistic and less toyish.

Ok that's what I figured, that the Maisto's were gonna be a little better than the Hotwheels ones.

I'm glad they made the HW ones a little bit durable - I can't imagine a little kid playing with a Maisto one for more than a few hours without breaking it...

Walmart usually has the widest variety to choose from. I got a Blue R1(surprise surprise), a Red R1, and a red R7.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

In memory of FastBlueR1...RIP

I just wish the Maisto's weren't so hit-and-miss.... some of them are REALLY good (i.e. most of the Ducatis. But some of them just seem 'off' - the R7, the Honda NR, to name a few.

I've got a handful of 'em at home... some on display, some still in boxes... I'll post my collection when I get there and I can actually count 'em. I don't think it's as extensive as Champs tho Now if you wanna talk MATCHBOX cars, I may have y'all beat...

Your right the R7 really blows. Tho other thing that bothers me is that they really are not up to scale. Ever put a F4 next to a liter bike. The F4 is bigger. Go figure. Not like I won't buy it though.
