  • John Deere T670i found for 8 cents

    Here's something different for today. A 1/87 scale John Deere 760i from Schuco.

    I've first seen this model a few years ago after attending a toy fair. MSRP was almost 35 bucks and I've already spent enough money at the fair so I've left it behind. Fast forward a few years and I found this gem again, this time at a different store some months ago. It was already marked down twice (from almost 35 to 15 and then to 8). I thought 8 bucks would be a great deal for such a detailed model, so I took it to the register. And guess what - it rang up for a whopping 8 cents. I'm a happy camper!
    The outer cardboard of the box was not in the best condition, but I sure can't complain at such a price.


    I've included a black BMW 5 Series (Herpa, also 1/87 scale) in the last two photos to give a sense of size.

    Enjoy the photos!

        Sweet! That is awesome and what a deal on the price! Like Zach I was not aware Schuco had offered a John Deere combine and with a header trailer no less! Thanks for sharing. It is nicely detailed!

          Thanks Zach! I think that was my best score of the decade!

            I've been looking at getting an HO scale combine. With the unloading pipe and header extended, they take up a great deal of space in 1/64. Tomica has offered a few (including a Deere, which I have) in just smaller than N scale, and it's really too small to show much detail.

            Yet, your HO scale Schuco appears to have even more detail than my 1/64 Deere 9760STS. And you got it for little more than SALES TAX on an MBX! You practically stole it! Better than that time I got two $20 pairs of Crescent pliers that were marked down to $5 each for $1.50 total.

              Thanks Cody!
              $1.50 for two pairs is a great deal too!
              I can only imagine how big a 1/64 version would be! My 1/87 one already takes up lots of space. I think it displays good next to a 1/64 scale vehicle.

                    Fantastic deal for 8 cents!

                    And I love the detail on this little model - better than the detail on most 1/64 scale counterparts.

                      Agreed, that's the reason why I love to collect 1/87 scale stuff. Lots of details at a very small scale.

                        It's funny about HO (1/87 scale) stuff. It seems to be the best scale for everything ... detail, accessories, etc., (except for maybe price).

                        Originally I jumped from collecting 1/43 scale to 1/64 because of price. Slowly the variety of 1/64 grew and the prices of detailed models increased to match what I was paying for 1/43 scale. I'm constantly wishing for more diorama material for 1/64 and it seems we are slowly getting more, but I don't think it will ever match the selection of 1/87 scale.

                        I do have a few Japanese HO cars and buses, but Japan isn't so much into HO as it is N. I have a lot of Tomytec N gauge! By the way, the Japanese train gauges are actually a slightly different scale than American or European counterparts - HO is 1/80 and N is 1/150. Currently I have enough N gauge to build an entire town if I ever get around to it. I guess I'm lucky there isn't more Japanese HO gauge material available.

                          Yeah, unfortunately the price of 1/87 scale stuff isn't that small. I often try to buy those models when they're marked down or I'll try to get a good deal at toy fairs. Still, I often find myself paying around 15 bucks for a single model. My most expensive H0 model (truck with box trailer) was almost $70.
                          You're completely right. The selection is endless. So much great H0 stuff out there.

                          I was never into 1/43 or bigger scales. Always collected 1/64 and started my H0 collection at a very young age. I also used to spent a lot of time with my 1/10 scale R/C cars and my 1/14 R/C trucks, but had to stop due to lack of time.

                          I've seen some of your N scale models in your finds thread - very nice stuff. I have a small N gauge train layout in my basement. I'm including some photos of it.
