    Hi all,

    I have decided to buy the full Michael Schumacher Retirement serie. I have currently 1 of them which is the Hockenheim "Danke Schumi". Next to that I put an order in for The Italian and Brazilian grand-prix. But is that the whole collection, or are there more of them besides these??

    Thanks for your help!!!

    That's true, but they don't belong to the Michael Schumacher Retirement series of Hotwheels. That's something different.

    Well then I don't know what are you talking about. Is there such a thing as an official "retirement series" from Hot Wheels?

    J2994 - Michael Schumacher Monza Retirement Announcement - 1/18th
    J2995 - Michael Schumacher Last GP Win - 1/18th
    J2996 - Farewell Michael! (Final F1 Race) - 1/18th
    L6234 - Michael Schumacher Anatomy of a Champion - 1/18th
    L6235 - Michael Schumacher All Time Career Records - 1/18th
    L6236 - Michael Schumacher Career Records -1/24th
    L6237 - Michael Schumacher Championship Collection -1/43rd (5 models)

    Those are the ones I am aware of. I do not believe L6235 has been released yet, since our supplier is not expecting it until next month.

    Well, that is what I was talking about, but apparently he is talking about something else.

    Okay thank you very much. Lucky I'm sorry it was indeed what I was talking about. I called my supplier yesterday and he said it's only the:
    Italy, Brazil, Shanghai and Anatomy. The 1/24 don't belong to this serie. But I see on a few websites different things so I'm pretty confused at the moment.

    hi
    i think your supplier was right,the italian,brazlian, chinese,and the anatomy are the retirement series.
    i will check with few guys in germany who i buy from and they should know the full story.
    i suppose now that schummi has signed on as third driver you could he is only semi retired.
    how did you get on with ordering from legende-miniatures.
    talk to you soon

    I guess it depends on how you define the series, but both the 1/24 and 1/43 models do have the Michael Schumacher retirement series logo on the box, so I would say Mattel clearly wants any collector to include those in their retirement series collection :)
