So after I got home on Saturday, I realized I’d left behind the Mazda Repu on the pegs. But I realized that, today being a holiday in India, the wife had gotten tickets for yet another movie in the same mall. So I popped into the same store today with a prayer in my lips hoping I’d have some luck.
The movie we had tickets for today turned out to be abysmally bad. It was so bad that we walked out during the ‘interval’* and to kill time, the wife and I, we split up to do some window shopping of our own.
Not a bad way to spend 10 bucks. It’s unfortunate that the grateful dead card is trashed.
After stopping at numerous stores looking for the elusive McLaren F1 I finally found one last night at Walmart. I was able to snag 2 of them. One has already joined the family at my desk the other will stay carded until I can get my hands on more to customize.
I’ve been eyeing the GMG Tin for a while, but $24.99 is beyond what I’d like to pay. So imagine my surprise when I see it half off, :).
You did know I love GT40s, right?
Here is the final bit of my second round of purchases from the great Fintail haul. I’m keeping the diecast Majorette dump truck on the right. The others are for my daughters. My oldest spotted the cherry picker today and asked for it. She loves cranes and tow trucks.
A couple of weeks ago, I’d asked if there was anyone here from Thailand. I had an upcoming vacation and I was wondering where to look in Thailand to pick up a few die-cast cars.
Just one piece today- this IXO Le Mans winning Mazda 787B. Brap brap brap.
The hunt for M case stuff continues, but I’ll take this as a consolation prize! The Camaro TH was the only one found on the pegs. I asked an employee if they had any new stuff in the back and he brought out an opened, half-empty L case. Not expecting anything, I opened it up and BOOM: Arrow Dynamic TH and Chevelle…
This GL type 2 pickup from the Blue Collar series caught my attention. Not sure why, since I’m not a massive VW fan, and I already had 3 type 2 buses, but I really like this casting. It was... different... I like different.
Four split among me and two other collectors. No Super for me, but it was definitely a success. The El Viento on the top left was a Kroger find; it’s missing the window piece. And I found another gold Batmobile at Walmart.
It’s good. Very good! Here it is at my desk at work with a few of my customs and a drawing from my son. I picked up 3 of them for future customs!
Hi LaLD! I haven’t posted in a bit; last weekend I moved, so a lot of the time around that was spent packing and unpacking. And, as it turns out, buying die-cast. So here’s everything I’ve picked up in the past few weeks. There are definitely some goodies in here.
Although missing the windshield plastic, great buy I think. They don’t make just cars this size anymore. Everything has lights, sounds, and eats batteries.
Last Friday I went antiquing with MrsZtp. We happened to come across this HW 100% for $5! That’s a steal, as 100% cars can go for $7-$10+ easily.
From an ongoing trade with The Bell King, I have received another box of goodies! Let’s dive in!
So I made it back from an overseas trip and of course needed to check on some toy and hobby shops for some die cast and here is where I broke the rule.
Today is my birthday, so I figured now is the best day to show you what I bought myself. I had planned on keeping maybe a bit over half of it, but once I got my grubby hands on it ... well, most of its sticking around ... aaaaand I may just go buy some more of it :)
