Big things with little cars

Advent 2016, Day HAWL

I have to admit, I already knew what was in this package. I’d suggested for it to be in the Advent Calendar somewhere, but I didn’t expect it to be the last one. When I opened yesterdays and realized I hadn’t seen it yet, I knew what was coming.

For Day 24...


...the 2016 Ghostbusters series Bread Box!

I love Bread Boxes...however, Slimer on the side of this...I’m kind of meh on it. It’s still a Bread Box though.


Knowing that this would be the last car in the calendar, I started looking around for something a little more interesting. I didn’t have to go far.

Shortly before Black Friday, our friend Citizen Patrick announced Model Citizen’s sale. I immediately found something I was interested in.


The Kyosho 1:43 Toyota 2000GT!


The detail level on this is outstanding, for a 1:43. The wheels are perfect, and the interior (as you can just barely see) has a high level of detail.


The matching badge on the pedestal is a nice touch.


Complete with a hand-written thank-you note from Citizen Patrick himself! I absolutely love this model, and fully intend for it to hold pride of place in my planned display in our spare room.

And that brings the 2016 Advent Calendar to a close. It’s been a fun ride, and I’m grateful for all who joined me on this journey. I’m especially grateful for the woman who takes the time to put this calendar together for me, not only this year but for the past couple of years as wonderful companion Andrea. I love you, babe!


To all LaLDers, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Some of you are already celebrating, and others will be soon. I wish you all the best, and thank you all!
