SIKU 1/87 combine harvester

Postby bigtractormike » Tue Mar 25, 2014 5:33 pm

This German made SIKU model came to me via South Africa believe it or not. I bought this model along with another boxed tractor trailer unit . I took so long to get to me, i forgot all about it, until the shock of seeing the package on my doorstep, box battered and smashed in, torn flaps, definite re-tape job . The model box is slightly squashed, but most importantly, the models are perfect !!

Highly detailed , almost all metal die-cast model . they are a bit pricey but well worth it !! hands down a winner over anything from MB or HW or many other brands as well.

Wish they would have SIKu display at Toys-r-us over here like they do in Europe. Would spend a lot of money on SIKU's !!

Hope you enjoyed the pics !! Thanks for looking !!

This is why those of us lucky enough to get SIKU love them, sure you pay a bit more but its well worth it as you see, their models are superb. I haven't seen this one myself in person but would love to get one of these for the collection. Mattel could learn a lot from SIKU

That is why i want Keefyd to try and get a dialogue with Siku and Simba Dickie Group people,i am bored witless reading the same old crap from collectors of Matchbox and there expectation that things will change,they never will as there is no demand.A few hundred collectors is nothing to the hundreds of thousands toddlers living in the Latin American countries.

Fantastic Mike - For a long time here in NZ we could get John Deere models apparently there was licensing issues brand did not allow NZ to receive them - Only last 2-4 years has John Deere been made available- this set I have not seen here:)
