  • Limited Edition Honda Civic Type R with Card Mismatch

    Good day community, new here (and to diecast collecting overall), and looking forward to contributing to the forum.

    I picked up a Honda Civic Type R today (220C-4), however, the included card is for the Chevrolet Camaro (279A-3). While the cars are of very little significant value other than what I paid for it, I'm curious if this is common, and if this will have any influence over the value of the unit as a collectible (...or if it's simply a PITA).

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the Garage, SebastiaanR, looking forward to seeing your contributions down the road.

    I've found something similar regarding the wrong card for the model packaged, so I wouldn't say that it's common since it's technically an 'error'. As for the value, I'm not sure how sought after these are by Majorette collectors as compared to a brand like Hot Wheels. Perhaps some of the members here who are more familiar with Majorette will have a better answer.

      Welcome to the Garage SebastiaanR. Like Terrence I am not a Majorette expert but know with other brands card errors can happen but I don't think it generally adds extra value to the model although there are variation/error collectors who do collect things like these.

        Welcome aboard, SebastiaanR!
        The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

        Thank you for your understanding.

          Welcome to the Garage SabastiaanR,

          Like others, I wouldn't expect much of any increase in value with a brand like Majorette, though I know little about the Majorette hobby market these days.
