Both of them froze, the first part-way through and the second never got going. Otherwise, excellent.

I want to get an 071 . Funds only just allow for one. My heart says black and orange. Or maybe black and silver. BUt my head keeps saying grey. Cant decide.

I had the same dilemma regarding the forthcoming “A”s and 121s.....

They’re all good!

Personally, what would decide it for me would be a comparison with what else was on my layout - whichever livery fitted best to suit what I already had....

Just wondering as we are nearing the end of May if a price for the 121s had been announced anywhere?

Both Rails and Hattons are quoting £145.50 which equates to €162.38 at today's rate. Rails say the full MMRP is £167.5 which equates to €186.95.

Marks Models suggested models may not arrive until July due to CV-19 shipping.

I reckon the price will be nearer €200 people
Hattons cannot know the price yet as MM has not got his final invoice from China

Ouch! €200 may not go down too well in a post CV19 world in recession.

The problem is that the dollar always gets stronger in times of global turbulence and crisis ..............the dollar being the world reserve currency of choice - how long that situation will survive the Tango Kid is another question - but that is the situation for now.

China demands payment in dollars - which are costing us Eurozone and sterling dwellers more now. Also throw in the fact that transportation of any means is selling at a premium too..............

I had budgeted about 200 yoyos per model from the start - so Im not surprised - it not that much more - they'll sell grand anyway

€170 inc postage from Hatton's may be more in line with folks expectations. I pre-ordered from them. Let's wait and see what happens.

Too right or they will be shelf sitters for a bit after the rush of the people still working pick theirs up. 

 I hope Dave's getting us ready and flying a kite for the future Mr Dyer stall Prices LOL!

Best price will win my bid, here or over the water.

Dunno if you know but Kernow operate a Loyalty Scheme. I am in that and its handy when you have some points built up so can take it some coin off the next big purchase. Check their website for more info.

How does it work?
 

Every time you make a purchase through your loyalty account, a point is awarded for each pound that you spend.  For example spend £1 and receive 1 point, spend £53 and receive 53 points.  Each point is worth 1p of loyalty credit.  Once you have reached 500 points this is automatically converted to a loyalty credit.  You can spend this credit immediately or you can continue to collect points and let your credit build.  Please note that points are not awarded for postal charges.

I would imagine around the €200 mark can’t be far off nowadays. Look at the prices of Uk and North American models, these markets are massive compared to the Irish one yet the prices have been rising well above inflation for the last few years. 
 

We can’t expect Paddy to be produce models at 2014 prices. I for one will buy what I can afford and support this fantastic effort by a one man band.
