I’ve been seeing some Facebook users in the Filipino Tomica collectors’ page get their hands on the LaFerrari, so I went and asked them where they’re getting it. One reply finally came through and echoed the other replies I got over the past week: it was ordered somewhere else.

Worse, that guy thinks the model might never show up in the big malls.

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE CONSPIRED TO MAKE SURE I NEVER GET THAT MODEL AT ALL EVER, HUH?! HUH!?

OK, to be fair, he did say there are direct sellers who have it for Php350. That’s Php120 more than retail pricing, and considering I’m saving up for other Tomica and Hot Wheels besides, I’m now faced with the world’s toughest decision. This is the most I’m paying for 3in/1:64. Is it worth it? Kimba? Sydney? Tell me. I want it so bad, but that’s a big risk I realize I’m taking.
