In a some what related twist, there is a complete set of the "movie" trucks on evilbay right now, with a current bid of 449.00...Almost double what they sold for new, and the auction is not done yet.....So, expensive, yes, but they seem to at least hold their value, and even possibly go up in price once they become unavailable..

FWIW, final bid for these was 560.77..... :o

I wish I bought more than one set when they came out, but the price seemed really high at the time. That was before we all knew how wonderfully exquisite these tiny models are.

I've heard Duel Trucks are actually a sizeable portion of @tom mann 's retirement portfolio.

They certainly have increased in value more than any other holding (my only other holding is Illinois state cars).

Not a bad idea. :D

37$ each on BLW website. Can we short a 100 shares of Hess? Bernie Madoff said he'd loan me the money.
