The company I work for is hosting a Christmas Party tomorrow night and they’re asking for everyone to bring toy donations to go to a good cause. Not really wanting to spend money on new toys, I’ve decided to give those kids a cool present they may appreciate: old un-opened Hot Wheels from nearly a decade ago! Two…
Due to circumstances mostly* beyond my control I’ve fallen behind on several HWEPs, photos I’m supposed to take, etc.
I’ll be doing my best to get caught up ASAP and I appreciate the patience of those affected and especially, the *other delays due only to my bad memory.
Here’s a rare metal base prototype Kool Kombi for…
My Ozzie mate, the bloke who has things sent to my house for forwarding, has asked that I try to help him with this early Hot Wheels Sunagon:
While the Model Master paint finished smooth and nice with the lightest of coats, getting full coverage over the entire body was nigh impossible. I tried again with paint I’m more comfortable with and I got even better coverage but more orange peel. This new color is Gloss Ivory.
2018 seemed to be the year of the “New Tooling” for Greenlight. so I thought we should discuss on what our most favorite New tooling of this year is.
So I haven’t been very active around here lately because simply put, things have been kinda barren around here. The new cases come in, sure, but they haven’t had much to write home about. Until today. Matchbox’s Rally 911 is here and it’s awesome. I’ve been waiting for this since we knew of its existence. Honestly the…
This lovely Museum Collection Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R showed up on my door step today. I would wager that this is a Secret Super gift. Well done who ever you are! I’ve had this on my watch list for far to long. IMO the green livery is the best livery. This was immediately liberated from its cube and photographed and…
I rarely purchase die cast cars other than hotwheels cars but I will try my best to give a list of the best ones I bought.
Since we’re going all Buzzfeed on LaLD today, I had to take advantage of all that clickbait and get my 2018 top-10 in as well!
A colleague of mine was vacationing in Hong Kong and picked up a new addition to my collection. A Hong Kong ice cream truck.
Is this the new Japan Historics? Looking at the price on Wheelcollectors, can’t send a SOS to sister to place an eBay order (like I’ve been doing on recent Car Culture sets) either when all I want is that McLaren and perhaps that Mustang.
Another hidden treasure from my storage revealed on my 186th post with the ‘50s Chevy Truck by Hot Wheels from their Ultra Hots series.
I have a love/hate relationship with resin models. I hate them because I want my cars to open, but I love them because cars that typically will never see the light of day in diecast are often made in resin. One such example is this Volkswagen Passat R36 wagon. Otto initially released this model in my favorite color,…
Playing catch-up...got some cool stuff to cover.
I know these were hard to find for some. Found these at Kroger today (with my second super in two days!) Cost plus shipping, dizzygti@gmail if interested.
Hey LaLD- it’s been awhile. To make a long story short, over the past year or so, I’ve gradually lost interest in diecast collecting. However, I probably have over six hundred cars, and the majority have little sentimental value or of limited interest. As such, I’ve decided to sell a large grouping of them, as they’re…
I grew up watching the batman animated series right next to the classic 60's version, because I am a 90's kid. Tim Burton’s batmobile was cool, but the btas version was basically what I wanted in a car at 10 years old.
A few years ago, when the Deltawing was still racing, they were selling 1:43-ish models of it at the Petit Le Mans. Limited run of 350, all numbered. I looked at one and saw the price: $200. No way in hell I was buying that.
As we’re nearing Christmas I am finding more treasures from the past and on my 185th post is the ‘48 Ford Woody under the Wagon Wheels series from Hot Wheels.
