Looking for a Spark?

We at 3000toys are excited to announce that Norscot, an official GM licensee, is now in production of a high quality, die-cast scale model of the 2011 Chevrolet Spark mini-car!


The actual Spark (shown above) is Chevrolet's newest entry into the small car market. A five-door hatchback that will be capable of greater than 40 mpg on the highway, the Spark features a high-quality interior, expressive styling, and a surprising amount of interior space.


The 1/24 scale die-cast replica (above) is slated for a release sometime between June and July and will be provided in full-color, collector level packaging. The Spark will come in 3 different colors (Super Red, Moroccan Blue, and Cocktail Green) and includes several premium features such as:
  • Opening hood, doors, and tailgate
  • Interior and engine detail
  • Authentic replication of real tires
3000toys.com currently has this highly anticipated model available for pre-order both individually and in a set (total of 3 cars).

  1. Just picked up the red and blue (green's sold out). Any chance of a second run now that the Spark's hitting US showrooms?

    1. So, YOU'RE the one. I was just about to buy the red one. Grrr.

      I too really desire one of these. Particularly in green since that's what I just bought after Superstorm Sandy destroyed my old car.

  2. I'm checking to see if we can get a few more. I'm afraid they're gone, but I'll let you know soon.

  6. Good news! Norscot still has more of these, and we will be ordering them soon! They should be back up on our website today or tomorrow, and I will email you when they are so that you can pre-order if you want.

    1. I've asked our rep at Norscot and waiting to hear back from her; I'm not sure when exactly we're supposed to get them. I'll let you know what I hear from her!

  9. Just to remind you, my address is different than the one I originally pre-ordered with. If you need me to send a new email for what that address is please let me know.

  11. Checking on the status of the cars and it changed to "Out of Stock". I preordered last December. Will I be getting my car?

    Carl

  12. Yes, you will still get it. I really apologize that they're taking so long to get here, but they should be coming from Norscot very soon. The reason that it says Out of Stock on the website now is that we cannot take any more orders now, because we have orders for all the ones we will be getting. Still have your pre-order in our system, and it will ship as soon as it gets here. Hopefully within the next month! :)

  18. Hi, Are you planning to sell the Chevy Spark models again sometime soon? I would like one.
    And second question - Do you have the option to send purchases abroad?
    Thanks.

    5. Kimberley,
      I didn't manage to purchase it on time, and now it says "BACK-ORDERED
      ETA uncertain, will ship as available"
      What does it mean?
      If I buy it now, how much time I'm expected to wait for the shipping?
      Thanks.

    6. Max, We are getting more Sparks but at this time we do not have an exact eta. We will keep you informed as soon as more information is available. We do recommend you placing your pre-order as soon as possible to ensure you receive your allotment from this shipment.
      Thank you,

    1. Naveen, We currently only have the Green 2011 Chevrolet Spark available in the case. We ship International orders through the Post Office or via UPS as determined by our shipping department. Because shipping is based on weight, we are unable to provide the exact shipping amount on orders under $500; however, shipping is usually 40 - 50% of the product amount (and can be 100%+ on large items). Unfortunately, we cannot say for sure until after the item ships because it is based on weight and dimensions. Because of this, we only ship International orders using MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover.
      You may be able to get a general idea at www.usps.com or www.ups.com. Because of our International volume, we are able to pass along a 50% discount off of UPS’s International Published Rates. Orders shipped via the Post Office are actual shipping plus $5 handling. Sorry, SURFACE SHIPPING is no longer available.
      You can check out our special terms for International orders at www.3000toys.com/info/international.html and our shipping terms & conditions at www.3000toys.com/info/shipping.html.
      Thanks,
      Kimberley
