Question MK3 toys?

i haven't been able to find a lot of models or die-cast of the MK3, was wondering if anyone else has better luck or info. (my kids really want a matchbox version of my new focus :) )

there are a few ST die-cast on the market, in a couple different colors. i've only been able to find ONE MK3 non-ST: Minichamps makes a 1:43 scale that looks exactly like a Titanium with handling package (5-spoke 18" wheels) here at minichamps site

their website shows it only in silver (and likewise i've only been able to find it for sale in silver).

BUT - i found a car, shipped directly from China. looked very much like the Minichamps one but it had no manufacturer info. so i bought it - it's Ruby Red



and sure enough, it's a Minichamps.

now keeping an eye out for a Performance Blue one!

Good find; I should get one so I can own at least one Focus that doesn't sound like the gearbox is shredding itself. ;)

Where did you find the Ruby Red one and how much did it cost? I would be very interested in getting one as that looks exactly like the Focus I just bought!

Any chance you have the item numbers for the silver and red models? I would like to have a silver one.

Or, do you have a link to the model on the Minichamps site?

Sorry about that. I must have read your first post too quickly. Thanks for posting it again!

and to those who asked... i paid far, far too much for a small toy. i may have had a beer or two and been really excited to find one. looks like they have two others available on ebay here http://www.ebay.com/itm/141014085499

if this means they're going to sell them in colors eventually, i'd still love to get a performance blue one and then i'll sell this one here. or if i can't wait, i'll get some touch-up paint and disassemble it. :P

oh! i should add, in my ebay searching i've found 1/18 scale red ones that look like the focus "S" package in europe (i think) they're bigger (obviously) and the hoods/doors open and stuff.
