    Ooooh, the Woodstock van. I wonder if it's modelled on the famous 'light bus' - the one in the infamous Woodstock photo taken with the 2 hippies sitting on top of it??

    Yes it is. Comes complete with guitar cases, amps etc.

    I'll have a couple of spares when they finally come into stock. I'm happy to put names down on the preorder list if you're interested. Just email me or send a PM.

    Here's another shot of the Blue splittie. Again I may have a couple spare but I'm not sure yet, so let me know if you're interested.

    Both are 1:12 scale. They're not cheap but the detail is amazing.

    WOW. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never actually really looked at the toys before, but I'll take notice from now on.

    Far out!! They are SO detailed. Shame I can't afford one of each of those Woodstock ones for the 3 kiddies. I had no idea of the cost.

    I wonder if Royce will get one from you Don? He's a boy who likes his toys. :)

    the one i put the deposit on today is 300, very, very intricate detail but i mean, if you love and collect them like many people do on here, i can't see 300 dollars spent on something better. well maybe...

    woodstock van looks good, have never seen the photo it's been modelled off though

    $300.00 is a VERY sharp price. :)
    If you can get it at that jump at it as they will go quickly.
    The last splittie (Red & White) is changing hands at $400.00 plus at the moment (if you can get one!)

    Don, I do recall asking you to put a woodstock aside, but that may have got lost in the frenzy that was the T2 and T5 purchasing.

    I think I would really like a blue one too, and we will put Andrew down for the payment of that one! He has been told to surprise me!:lol:

    Thanks Don...If you need deposit, talk to me at nationals. i will have some toy funds on me just in case.;)

    No need for a deposit, the deposit can remain at Mt.Fairy. :lol:
    There is one for you when they arrive. I'll let you know as soon as they arrive in the shop.

    $320 is a sharp price...I was quoted over $400 for the Blue one at a Lismore shop.
