    This is an absolute must-have :)
    If your better half doesn't put one of these in your stocking this Christmas - she doesn't really love you...

    Anyone who buys one of those, needs a check up from the neck up! Apart from the horrendous price, it's horribly ostentatious!

    I'm not sure
    even an ardent enthusiast of the type like Terry would stretch to £2m for a 24-carat gold Wildcat. 1/24th scale obviously...

    Well, as little as he likes to admit it.....he breeds Hippocroccofrogs as a hobby and for what I've heard, it brings in good money!

    For the price tag on one of those solid gold paperweights, you could buy a Hippocrocofrog or two. And maintain it!
