I heard 6 total for the McDonalds car. But, 1 of 8, or of 3 is cool too!

It's a conversation piece for sure....

The last red bull I was watching sold for over $280! That's the highest I've seen so far. I wonder what they'll be going for in another 5-10 years or so...

I posted some of my Tyco Prototype's on the Facebook Collectors Group Page last night for those that are on Facebook. I wasn't able to upload them from my phone onto here due to the file size so they can be seen there.

Ralph and Hitman,

Thanks! Yes and I posted a few more today. I have more that I'll post up on Monday when I get back in. I wish that I knew of a better way to put them here from my phone because I know that everyone isn't on Facebook.

I would not say the Red Bull is rare. I would say it is grossly overpriced at the moment. A rare car is one you rarely see and is very hard to find. Red Bull's are listed all the time and just seem to pull in big dollars for some reason. Same with the release 5 Auto World Ice Cream Truck - it will often sell for more than an Aurora original. Insane.

Of course most rare cars are old and it is because they are so old that they become rare (since few survive the years). What I would consider rare for recently released (last 10 years) cars are some of the Mattel F1 cars put out in the mid-late 2000s. I almost never see them listed anywhere and I don't ever remember seeing them when they were first released. You'll find 20 Red Bull's before you find one of those Mattel F1s.

In fact, I haven't seen any Mattel cars in the last few years, yet sets were released. I have been able to track down the cars from vendors or eBay, but where they came from or how they were originally marketed is a mystery to me. In fact a lot of Mattel cars seem to have appeared out of nowhere and disappear real fast.

Now that's rare.

Joe

I agree 100 percent with you. I constantly see cars on EBAY that say rare when often several are listed at the same time. For example count how many AFX Promo Petty Chargers you see in one month on EBAY. Lately there have been quite a few. Less common would be a much better term.

Now here is a truly rare car I recently picked up, and this was the first time I have ever seen one listed.

Rick, every photo that I post here on HT, I first host on Facebook. So since you have the pix posted there, you can also embed them here very simply...

Here are some of Rick Carter's Cars(he posted on Facebook)





Tyco Prototype Tazmans with airdams. The one is the background is molded and the foreground, hand painted. The foreground has stickered doors, a black #6 on the roof and no Goodyear labeling on the trunk. This one is not in the guide but the one in the background is.
