Warhammer 40K: 1997 Metal Thunderhawk Sells for £25,600.00!
One of the rare 40K Metal Thunderhawks has sold for a sky-high price on eBay! Take a look.
The classic 1997 Metal Thunderhawks are extremely rare and difficult to come by – and even more difficult to assemble! But one soul found one, assembled and painted it up on his YouTube channel, and auctioned the classic off on eBay. Then the magic happened!
Here’s the eBay listing for the beast from Squidmar Miniatures:
What a beauty!
Here’s Squidmar’s description of the mighty metal beast:
We do not take any responsibility for any shipping issues that may cause damage on the piece and would recommend you to buy an insurance for it while its being shipped. Price for shipping will be a discussion with the one who place the winning bid as we’ll look over the alternatives together to see what fits best. There’s no refunds or returns if you regret your purchase. So please only place a bid if you are seriously interested.”
Here’s the video Squidmar put up of him acquiring, assembling, and building the Thunderhawk.
101 bids later the eBay auction closed on September 6th. We have a winner who paid a pretty penny of £25,600.00! That is $35,000 US Dollars at current exchange rates. That is an incredible amount, and perhaps one of the highest, if not the highest for a single GW miniature. There must be a very excited winner out there somewhere watching the mail every day!
~So how high end does you think the 40K collector’s market goes!?
