Yes, this will take some explaining. Let’s start with “TDM”. That stands for “Tomica Dream Motors” - which is not to be confused with the “Dream Tomica” or even the “Toys Dream Project”. With the 2001 launch of “TDM”, Tomica started to co-operate with actual designers to come up with ideas for cars for the future.…
Torchbug was involved in a series of incidents resulting in a serious accident on set while filming his last movie before retirement. Details are sketchy but the entire thing happened while the cameras were rolling.
I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of big ol’ trucks on the road. When driving, the massive trucks are gargantuan behemoths, vehicles to be avoided.
Im too excited for next sunday. So heres no2. Top Mark Models. 1:43 Scale. Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT
CyborgAbeLincoln made me aware the IG clips show up small and not HD. I’ve uploaded the final clip from the friday film night post to YouTube. Now you can see the full 265 pictures/ 24 second uncut feature length animation.
Today on #ScaleSunday. We are showcasing this 1:43 Burago Ferrrari Dino 246 GT!
Sort of. I’m sitting here watching the Bathurst 12 Hour, so I figured I’d give my Commodore a little reminder of home.
Well Sort of, I had an after noon to kill, so decided to do a little bit of hunting, I read on here to try the Walmart’s in the gheto areas, which is exactly what I did, and came back pretty content.
Due to technical difficulties my Friday Film Night post is either a day or so late or a few days early. Anyway I’ve put together some different Stop Motion clips using the same ‘set’ and trying some new ideas out. First just a couple of stills then the clips.
Freakin’ finally. I thought this was never going to show up in my area. I passed on the Zamac Firebird and Corvette. No STH, but what are you gonna do?
I took a trip to Walmart on Thursday night, hoping to find some new How Wheels, or better yet new Auto Worlds (I’m beginning to lose hope of that ever happening). No dice on either, but as I was about to leave, the Intimidator caught my eye. Of all the things I expected to find, an 80's Dale Earnhardt Monte Carlo was…
This rack. This rack is the first thing I go to whenever I visit CVS. So many cars. Unfortunately, I’ve never actually bought one. Until today.
they pulled me back in. I’m talking about the mainline Hot Wheels and Matchbox. Ever since Matchbox has been shifting their focus on more generic and fantasy looking cars, I’ve began focusing on M2 and more recently Greenlight for their more realistic looking vintage cars and most importantly trucks. What disappoint…
Corgi Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato
I’ve had this one for a while, as I picked it up a few years ago in-store. It’s one of my favorites, though I’m not really into Japanese cars or cars from the 70's. I think this was one of the early modified classic Japanese castings that came out before the craze. The proportions are fantastic, I love the flared…
I am starting a new LALD series called Soviet Saturday where I will feature some relics from my rather large diecast collection that just keeps on growing.
Not a bad haul if I say so myself. I’m heading back home for a couple of weeks and these will make great gifts for car fwends!
Model buildings seem to be the the theme for these Saturday posts, and here’s another. Today we examine Lesney Matchbox A-5, the Home Stores Accessory Pack. This little building was introduced to the range in 1961, and was not a hot seller, remaining only until 1962-63. It’s an unusual little thing, and it has good…
Then I’m outta here.
I finally got to spend some time with my sister and her family. She had picked up the 2016 Johnny Lightning Super Beetle for me, and it’s finally here. Now that I have it in hand, I can see I was wrong to turn my nose up at it, saying, as I recall, that it was the same casting that I already have…
