Good lord, $300 for the Mark I monorail replicas? Count me out of that one. I'd like a monorail model, but something affordable, please. Obviously these were made for the same wealthy geeks who collect those $3000 Star Wars maquettes and whatnot.
My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club
Yikes! There are some scary prices on some very cool stuff. Fortunately the pin sets don't seem to be too overpriced...I may need to get those. I especially like the plaque with the opening day speech and the Space Mountain pins.
