Possibly but I think a nuremberg knights set would sell more than the classic police car they're currently offering.

I think the police car is an extremely strange choice to be honest - maybe the original was very popular and they think people might want it? But it seems very odd.

It just shows they don't understand the collector market. Even as a kid I'd rather have had one of the police sets with lots of klickys eg:

Those guys look like they're having a party - a police party!  P) :**:

Thank you for the review! I look forward to getting some of these. :D

The new metallic colours are certainly more durable than the older plated items (and even the later items that had metallic paints applied on top of silver or gold parts). However, the shine is definitely not the same. ;)

It's the first jousting knight they have done in years.

I suspect it's also going to be their last, ever :(

I certainly hope that is not the case!
