Lots of Siku love here! As a kid they were all ways “too expensive” so were only ever a treat on holiday or birthdays. Easily twice the price of a hot wheels or a matchbox and not far off a 1/36 Corgi.
Recently (as quite a few children of the 70’s on here seem to be doing) I have been acquiring the lusted over dream diescasts from my crumpled catalogues of my childhood.
Early 80’s in senior school a classmate had “the” dream diecast - the Siku crane 😳 fully operational and sadly the same price as whatever real car my dad was running at the time 😆 It weighted a ton, everything moved too! The lucky sod!!! That birthday I did get a rather fetching Mercedes W123 rallye which obviously ended its days in my childhood model scrapyard (own up we all did it!).
So I watched eBay through the lockdown from work and spied this in a night shift, half heartedly listed... for just over £20 delivered (probably not far off what is was new!) it finally arrived 35 years later 😎
