preorders, Product update, Store news -


Let's start with the not so good news...

Sadly, we found out this week that COBI is no longer allowing retailers to sell their limited edition sets as they've decided to sell them all direct from their website. We're really gutted as we love a good draw and we know how much you guys love our fast, free shipping! So the Graf Zepplin will be the last Limited Edition set we will be able to offer I'm sorry to say.

Now for lots of good news!

Due to an order cancellation, COBI has allocated us extra Graf Zepplin Limited Edition sets - hurrah! So if you missed out on the draw or wish to purchase one of these additional sets, please drop us an email ASAP at, expressing your interest. These sets have sold out everywhere, so we will be selling them on a first come, first served basis, giving our customers first refusal, of course!

The sets will arrive in stock week commencing 4th May and unless previously sold, we will add them to our website for anyone to purchase.

Please note, the original ten sets are still reserved for the winners of the draw who we will be invoicing for the payment at end of this week.

We've also found out that the RRP for the limited edition sets is actually £239.99 instead of £229.99. In the interest of fairness, we've decided to keep the price as previously advertised, unless you are using a discount code.

Also due to an order cancellation, our lovely COBI contact Klaudia has reserved us the last six T34/85 sets. This popular set (COBI-2476A) may or may not be back in production at the end of the year so if you would like to get hold of one now, please drop us an email ASAP and we will reserve one for you: We will allocate them on a first come first served basis so don't delay!
