This group of Micros was generously sent to me by Vdubyajohn. It’s a tremendous and diverse group of castings.

First up is this Bandit Trans Am. This is a later casting that I had never seen, and it blew my mind a bit when I did see it.

Next up is another late casting, a ‘69/’70 Charger. I have this one in orange, but it looks sinister in black.

Here’s a lovely early casting, a Ferrari 308 (I think?). I don’t remember this casting, but kid me wasn’t huge into Ferraris, so I may have traded it away back in the day. I’m definitely glad to have it now though.

Next we have a knock off Micro racing buggy. I have some of these from back in the day, but I’m completely spacing on the brand name. I bet somebody here knows it.

Next are some more knock offs. These I’ve never seen before. Their bases are completely unmarked, and they are clear rip-offs of actual Micro Machine castings. These are really interesting finds.

Finally we have a cool little VW Keychain. I estimate it at roughly HO scale (1:87) give or take. It’s a cool little piece. I may make this the keychain for my scooter. It’s got a nice weight and feel to it.
