This month saw fewer models enter my collection than usual, just 8 models, but because of the track set (49 lari) the cost still went over the 100 lari barrier.
The month started with buying two models, which I had wanted the month previously but had put on hold to keep last month’s budget below 100 lari. A Corgi Morris Marina 1.8 Coupe and a Kinsmart Chevy Camaro in Fire Department livery. I love finding Corgi models here, it is quite unexpected, this month I found two the Morris Marina and a Citroen SM both models were made in the seventies, I found both at Ucha’s stall on Drybridge Market the Morris was 20 lari and the Citroen, 25 lari (including box).
In an earlier post, I lamented that the stock of Hot Wheels here is limited, I’ve only been able to find three of the ten cars in the Hot Wheels Speed Graphics series. This month saw three Hot Wheels models added to my collection: the Toyota Supra from the Speed Graphics series, a ’62 Custom Chevy Pick Up with surfboard and Fast Fish, which came with the stunt loop set.
I also found a couple of Matchbox models in Super Toys in Tbilisi Mall, a new store but they only have 2015 Hot Wheels, however it is not all bad, they do have more Matchbox than I have seen in other stores recently. I got a third Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia and Track Attack. I am not usually a fan of military vehicles, but it was Matchbox (my favourite brand) and it does have a moving part (the missile ramp goes up and down), a rare feature with Mattel Matchbox models.
The Kinsmart 2014 Chevy Camaro proved irresistible in its firefighter livery.

3 from Super Toys, 2 Drybridge Market, 1 Pepela, 1 Varketili, 1 Carrefour
