£420 Tiger Tank

Postby steve131 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 8:35 pm

Big fan of the Tiger Tank and regularly on Bovington Tank museum site ,even managed to go there last year on a now rare day out :lol: .Found this https://tankmuseumshop.org/collections/ ... -model-kit on their web site. Can't say i I've heard of Brickmainia but was stunned at price for an 1/35 model . I could have spent £420 in their shop on multiple things but wouldn't on this ,was wondering if this is because as they say is the Cadillac of Lego models and rare worth it or very much overpriced :?:

I've heard of brickmania they do a lot ofww2 miltary items that lego don't do.

But looking at this I was expecting a ucs standard set with thousands of pieces. But clearly this isn't a ucs, very over priced.

£420 for 887 pieces? They’re having a laugh!

Brickmainia have been around for years and I'm surprised they are still able to sell anything. The builds are great and must have took some time to achieve but time has moved on and with parts a plenty MOC builders are selling there own models as plans or complete kits......but strictly no Lepin :naughty: :)
Shane and I had a couple of Army figures from Brickmania years ago and we also purchased some army weapons and grenades from Brickarms.
$495 for a small Tank :think: :snooty: I dont think so.....make your own :D its a lot of fun

Brickmania mini-figs are amazing and really well done and so are the kits they produce but imo over priced.

im a huge lego fan, and if this was a lage model 3000+ bricks, i would have really considered it, especially as there is money going to the museum. At £100-120 i would buy it.
