Well just to let you know here is another confirmed one that you guys do not have on the list. I put my max bid at $425 which was crazy enough and still got outbidded at the last second. If I did not bid that person would of won it at $255 because $250 was the next bid aside from mine. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Micro-Machines-64-Turbo-Minty-Mint-NM-New-Factory-Sealed-Nintendo-N64-/201686529930?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEDWX%3AIT&nma=true&si=kJMN6gOAmBw%252BZ3Ek76VN%252FckGU0A%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
Well winning bidder must not have wanted it (or overspent their budget), trying to sell it at $1300 OBO, HA! They overpaid by a ludicrous amount and will be in for a rude awakening if they honestly expect to profit off it.

The crazy thing about the pack-in Countach is that is my car in Penny Racers 64.

Let's hit the toy culture rewind button for a sec. Matchbox and Hotwheels were the standard for miniature toy cars in the 1970s and 1980s. But in the late 1980 and 90s, Penny Racers and Micro Machines competed at a lesser, more microbial level. I preferred the more cartoonish look of Penny Racers and there pull back motor, not to mention the penny slot for wheels and tricks, but that was just me.

Their pepsi versus coke type battle raged unto the N64. Both had racers on the console, well, actually, Penny Racers had 2 games on the console, Micro Machines one. Penny Racers is a kart style game that grew on me immensely; Micro Machines is an isometric top racer (a subgenre that gives me fits).

So my point: In Penny Racers 64, one of the many cars you can choose is the awesome Lamborghini Countach that can be painted yellow . . . and looks pretty much like the one packed in that Micro Machines 64 box!

A greedy fool! I'm starting to think they come off an assembly line. They are all the same, and we've all seen them.
I hope he/she is listening.

Good take Bluedog!

Yes, ChoroQ2. :yeah:

To be more specific, the Lamborghinis in discussion here are all based on the Countach LP400 of the late 70's.

You're also right about the 1990's toy line market. Nintendo 64 even got Hot-Wheels: Turbo Racing.
That game is based on the series of Hot-Wheels PC games of the same era.
What's even crazier, is that Hot-Wheels: CRASH!, Hot-Wheels: Stunt Track Driver, Hot-Wheels: Stunt Track Driver 2 Get'N Dirty, and Hot-Wheels: Micro Racers, each came with their own unique pack-in toy car that you could only get with each PC game!

Lol, I was about to post about this. I messaged the seller asking how they justify the high price and they said that used ones go for over $200 (bs) and linked to another for sale for $90 that didn't even have the car. I don't know what planet they're living on.

I just realized that we now how have sealed examples of this Chevy Pickup facing both directions!
This means that vehicles are placed in either direction, or this is an example of human error.
Nice catch Cabanon!

This vehicle is based on the Chevrolet 1500 Silverado of the 1980's and 1990's.

At least the auction price is under the Kelley Blue Book value. :lol:

I just happened to scroll down further from your listing and there it was!
The seller said that these are the only two he has, and hates to see them go...
