Previously I indicated that I found the Matchbox 70 Datsun 510 Rally with the disc wheels in Dollar Tree on the bottom of the shelf and nearly left it there thinking it’s another 6 spokes wheel. On my 126th post is the 510 disc wheel makeover.
Matchbox’s recolor of the ND Miata was excellent, most especially its front and rear tampos of the lights. The letdown was the use of mag wheels with chrome spinners. Thankfully, this KREAUTO model wheel set-which looks like a cross between the SSR Star Shark and the SSR Speed Star Wagon-was on hand to improve the…
This is another one from Fintail’s mega sale a little while ago. It always was somewhat of forbidden fruit for me. In Europe there’s somewhat a struggle as in other parts of the world. In the US it’s you’re either a GM or a Ford guy. In Australia you’re either a Ford or a Holden dude. In my country it was Volkswagen…
The 6-wheeled Mercedes Benz G63 AMG truck by Matchbox. I’m not a big fan of this vehicle, but I figured I would pick it up since I don’t see it that often on the pegs. Not a bad casting, but the wheels seem a little too big for it.
A very cool casting by Matchbox. My uncle owned one of these VWs in wagon form, it was a very cool vehicle. This model has well-done tampos and the details are cool to look at, I got very lucky finding this one at the 99 cent store :)
I may had stretched the theme days rule a bit too far, but I guess it’s okay for this awesome MBX Best of the World Dodge pickup. The tampos, the wheels, the colors, everything’s so good about this casting!
Decided to pair up the MBX 914 with the HW Race Day cousin.
A true workhorse, when Chevrolet designed this they probably hadn’t the looks as their first priority. They achieved, however, a true gem of a design in form of this 70's stepside truck, marvelously recreated by Matchbox in a period correct color combo. What a great cast!
On my 116th post is the ‘64 Austin Mini Cooper S by Matchbox under their Heritage Classics series.
This may not be the most detailed, the most expensive or the rarer diecast F40, but for me it’s the best. In my 9th birthday (almost 18 years ago), in 1999, my parents gave me some diecast models, and this was the beginning of my collection. Among these cherished models, this sweet Ferrari F40, one of my favorites…
As an expert level user of various inventory reporting web pages its always nice to stumble upon a surprise chase. Even more satisfying is that some poor soul missed it. At 1 of 500 this maybe my lowest numbered M2.
When I first wrote about the ‘70 Datsun 510 Rally made by Matchbox, I find it lacking in detail as it focus the graphic on the equipments on the roof, hood and trunk but it only shows the front in black and the rear was just body color. The sides look empty for a rally car.
Long time no see, LaLD! Well, that’s not really true. I’ve been checking the site regularly but haven’t posted in a while. But never fear, I’m still around! Anyway, I’ve seen a lot of posts with the new Greenlight buildings lately. I also found a few of these and decided to pick up the STP garage. Not a huge fan of…
For me, one of the best castings ever made by Matchbox. The colors, the tampos, everything’s perfect! Plus, what could possibly go wrong with an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA?
... To say the least. I finally managed to secure a holy grail of mine, the Matchbox Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) truck. Well, that’s what I thought.
The weekend is here! Woot!
You know those posts, where there are too many pics? Yea, me neither hahaha This safari has been long overdue! We found an ancient temple!
The 1962 Nissan Junior by Matchbox - Cool casting, I’ve never seen one of these in the flesh, but it looks like it might have been a sturdy and capable little beast. This casting has very neat tampos/details that really stand out.
...no? Good morning, all! Now, enjoy this Teutonic thing, here:) This and the Defender 110 are my top two favorite castings from MBX.
Just a couple of Defenders I scored. I’m thinking I need to do another ‘safari’ shoot, soon. Whaddya say?:D
