Hi there members,I was just wondering if any of you know whether Corgi will ever be releasing a model of the Vauxhall Firenza as theyve released the Viva and i would love them to release a Firenza,also they have released the Vauxhall Cavalier mk2 model but have not released the mk1 saloon model along with the mk1 hatchback/coupe model,I would be very grateful with any info please and thank you in advance.

Oxford Diecast already make the Firenza Gerald and have released a couple of colourways, maybe more?. Perhaps Corgi can offer a Viva HC or a Victor FD series instead

Sorry but think you were lucky to choose any 'highlights' from the latest range. Must have been written before all of the understandably negative comments from nearly everyone who has posted. I apologise again but this is a VERY lacklustre catalogue

Very average line-up, could be so much more interesting.....

Be good to see a new casting or two of some 'ordinary' cars. These wouldn't conflict with most of the current Oxford 1/43 range themes so fingers crossed

 What I do not understand is how the reviewer(s) of this model did not notice this? Did you really think collectors would just accept this without voicing disappointment? If it was picked up why proceed without notifying retailers and customers that the production model will not be as advertised? Either way it's been a very poor effort and while we may be able to return the model, this is not really what this is about

Shoddy all round. Very poor misleading customers initially and then poor after sales service. Bombs or model should be replaced !!!! Whoever said this was okay needs to be severely reprimanded

 Given that vans offer more livery and maybe body options, I echo the need for 1/43 Sherpa van, which may also be badged as Leyland-Daf, Freight Rover etc. Bedford CF and BMC J4 would also be very welcome offering a classic nod back to the 70's and 80's. The BMC JU and EA vans would be cool along with the Commer/Dodge 'walk-thru'. The 60's and 70's were a fascinating era for British vehicles and you only have to look at the number of people who attend classic car shows or the popularity of TV productions where so many viewers comment on the vehicles that appear in them

Agree with all the above. Lots of Vanguard opportunities that wouldn't seem to clash with existing Oxford 1/43 releases.......Victor FD series anyone? Zephyr/Zodiac MKIV perhaps? Arrow series Rootes Minx/Hunter/Gazelle/Sceptre? All offer police options

More 1/76 trucks would be nice to see too

Desperately need 'proper' communication. We loyal collectors who have spent money (and want to spend more on the 'right' products) feel totally ignored
