It’s finally that time for me to downsize my diecast collection to a much more restrained size. I’m planning on leaving the nest in a year or two so I want to make it easier when I don’t have to take an entire collection of collectible toy cars with me. I’m still keeping a few because I really like the quality of…
So our LaLD friend, WitheredCustomz, ran an IG contest and I won! And boy, did I win! But first, if you don’t follow him, give a good long look at @witheredcustomz. He does some excellent custom work as many of you know and he deserves a Follow from you all.
Thanks to my kids wanting to go to Toys R Us, I got in a nice Father’s Day HAWL, including my second ever Green Machine!!! And a TRU exclusive one to boot!!! As cool as it was to find though, it doesn’t really fit in my collection. So I’ve got it up for sale in the LaLD marketplace. If you’re interested, just let me…
Once in a while, the local HW collectors get together at a place close to the commercial capital to buy as well as sell the cars among us. Last Saturday was one such meetup day, and the location was not too far away (although I am blessed with numerous smaller cars, still no 1:1 in my stable so have to resort to…
Two amazing things happened yesterday. Story time!
This is a quick ‘n’ easy custom that took me like a year to finish.
In keeping with the spirit of the day, I thought I’d go ahead and post my find. My Target has been getting old stock and they just got their third case in.
Because just like Camshaft Chris posted, I found a Super Surf Crate today as well! Found it earlier this morning at a local southern Ohio Target along with two GMG Corvettes - which are just as hard to find in my areas as $THs! Ignore the seat rip haha, I daily drive a 1975 Plymouth Gran Fury and the seats are torn.
Greetings to all! The first post at LaLD. Excited! :D
Ford’s new GT is one of my all-time favorite cars. The shape is exciting, futuristic, and totally unique. Yet it retains its heritage and builds upon its history. Iterations of the GT are few and far between. They’ve hit this one out of the park!
So first let me say my vacation wasn’t actually just for diecast, as awesome as that would be. The actually purpose was to go visit my in-laws in Florida. However, I was fortunate enough to get to spend a good amount of time doing some diecast hunting, and I had a great HAWL from this vacation. Especially thanks to a…
Myself and Camshaft Chris on Friday with some new stuff
Lovely model of the ferocious beast. I know this isn’t exactly a new model, but only yesterday did I find one in the wild. It’s taken me this long to own it, but I don’t mind.
Well, 2 weeks of crunch time at an auditing firm does help pay for stuff, although the work enviroment was a bigger problem than the hours. The Continental Supersports Convertible is by Kinsmart, and that’s a Majorette 675LT.
... if the pegs in a Japanese Toys R Us are better stocked than any local store. In fact, this was the first time I ever saw Air-Cooled on pegs anywhere.
There’s a story to go with this particular Ferrari 599XX by Hot Wheels....
As far as I am aware, these are all three versions of the Bugatti Type 57C Cabriolet produced by Hot Wheels. If there are any I’ve missed, please let me know!
Got this great lookin Custom 53`Chevy made by HotWheels a few days before I started my trip to USA. So I didn`t have time to take some pictures of it so far. But now I did - and I can`t take my eyes off this beautiful diecast with the transparent hood. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.
Below are some HWEP spoils (or iHWEP in the case of Jobjoris). I have to thank Jobjoris, MustangFan, Vdubyajohn, and PlasticPrints for these goodies obtained in trades. Captions will tell the tale.
Alright! Hope you guys are having an awesome Tuesday! Just got out a few cars and few of my customs for a photoshoot. One of ‘em is the Ford Raptor 6x6 which is one of my coolest customs yet with suspension and the other is my first custom that I ever made (yes when I had just started out!) This was THE first yo! It…
