OMG GIVE UP HALF THOSE PLATES ARE IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS YOU ARE RICH AS HELL:whistle:, sorry to slash your hopes but the Hong Kong plates were only on show there and were never EVER given away to anyone, no one i have ever talked to has had or even heard of a guy who had one, not to mention all of those plates except a few are $100+ usd, i hope your packing the cash, and GOOD LUCK:D

EDIT: Also the lego Star Wars plate was a custom 1/1 so unless you find the owner and offer him a Ferrari

Alot of the members of this sub-forum have posted wish-lists and lots of pictures of their collections, or recent purchases. Don't let Jak scare you. He is right, some will cost you a small mint, but don't let that deter you from collecting plates. You just might have to scale it down a bit lol

I see you made your list. HMMM

UK launch team(Should be easy to get from a friend or Ebay - estimate $50)
x05 Amsterdam(going to be hard to get but keep your eyes open this faceplate should pop up now and again. Estimate $150)
zero hour( People sell this faceplate on ebay alot so you should be able to get one on there. Estimate $100)
Adidas ltd edition Fifa world cup Germany(very easy to get from a friend or ebay. Estimate $20)
GRAW(another easy one to get make sure it's not a fake. I think it's a little harder than "easy" but some patience you can get one.)
Team Xbox(this one is going to be tricky. Figure on $150 or more.)
Hong Kong apartment building(can't help you there a faceplate I don't know of anyone having. You might as well forget owning this. If it ever comes up, the prices it will go for will be ludicrous.)
Xmen(Very hard to get I only know of one person that has this faceplate. Never seen it for sale.)
Lego star wars(can't help you don't know nothing about. One of a kind, will never be available for sale.)
X06 Toronto Canada(I have this faceplate but sorry not going to sell anytime soon but if one comes out I will let you know. Estimate $150-$200)
MS Experience "Urban"(I too am looking for this facelate. They come on ebay now and again so keep a look out. Estimate $150)
Rainbow 6 Vegas(I see this faceplate on ebay.co.uk alot but most of the sellers will not ship to the USA sorry to say. Spacey should have a spare soon. Prob. $40 shipped.)
Lost planet(easy to get there are on ebay all the time - Estimate $30 give or take.)
GRAW 2(nice facplate and should be easy to get. Spacey bought two from teh same guy and got stiffed for $45 each. Be careful, watch feedback, get email first.)

There ya go.

We are working on the definitive Faceplate Database. You will be able to see pictures of every faceplate ever made (and many customs). There will be info about their availability and you can mark which ones you own, which ones you would LIKE to own, and if someone has one to trade or sell. Keep checking back. Everyone will have an opportunity to add to it and be a part of it.
