I picked up two more Matchbox Lesney Editions over the past few weeks, bringing my total of Lesney Editions to .. three!
Only, there’s something off about the color...
Today’s antique store finds. First up is a widebody Mazda RX7 by Matchbox.
This is my favorite Johnny Lightning casting and livery, EVER. I’ve loved Firebirds since forever ago. When I saw this, I KNEW I HAD to have it. I may just have to get the black one with the red flames... Even the White Lightning of this looks cool, to me. The colors, livery, details like the decals and tampos, and…
I’ve been on the road a little bit, but now, I’m going to really do a lot of traveling. Most likely for the next six months. So, here’s an update on all the diecast miles I’ve put on Snow White. He doesn’t like being callled a she, by the way :p
Ah the sweet smell of Friday! Hope everyone will have a great weekend ahead! We in SL are blessed with a long weekend :-D
Matchbox Lamborghini Miura together with the Hot Wheels Aventador, Veneno, and Gallardo Superleggera.
Needless to give introductions to these two!
First off, these images came from the Facebook Live streak off of the Lamely Group- major hats off to them for releasing this stuff to everybody. Matchbox has released their listing of new toolings for 2018, and there are some great things, some designed in mind of Matchbox’s 65th Anniversary- and that includes…
On this Thursday on the Thames we have three of Lotus’s greatest lightweight two seaters which range from playful roadsters to dedicated track machines. Technically, the latter isn’t strictly a Lotus at all, rather it’s Caterham’s modern-day interpretation of the classic Lotus Seven.
I’ve been meaning to put these two together ever since I got Matchbox’s E430 from a recent eBay purchase! The Audi may be a sports-oriented performance longroof and the Mercedes a comfort-oriented pragmatic longroof, but together they make about the perfect dream garage!
Just some quick wintery photos I took last night of the Volvo.
Sadly too late for Wagon Wednesday, but this is my main new build that I’m entering into Matchbox’s custom contest, a father-son snowboarding trip themed Volvo V60.
Today I have a very exciting casting for you. Perhaps the most exciting casting Matchbox has ever produced! May I present to you the...
As I was sorting through the Big Box o’ Corvettes from vdubyajohn, I encountered multiple examples of this MBX T-Top C3, which is a very nice casting. The top car in the absolutely mind-bending picture at the top of this post had a purple interior, which I am not going to let go to waste. So I disassembled that car.…
This is the only acceptable way to treat them.
Happy 4th of July to all you Americans. I have little American stuff to show but as I still had Fintail’s package laying around: that came from the USA so it’s relevant. Totally.
In digging even DEEPER into my deceased Father In Law’s basement, I came across a box of old Matchbox monster trucks.
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.
This one was the main reason for getting a final lot from Fintail’s Sale of the Century. Although there might come another one...
