Do I collect Greenlight? I get that question a lot. I guess my honest answer would be “Do you really care if I collect Greenlight or not?”
But I get it. A few people read this blog and watch my channel, and a lot of you feel Greenlight needs a little more love. And I agree. Ultimately I drew the line somewhere, and there are brands that I pursue more sporadically than others. They fill in gaps.
I have had issues with the quality of Greenlight in the past, and that probably turned me off for awhile, and most likely made me a little more selective. But that is nice, because it means I really know when I want something. Collecting has a lot of traps, and getting caught up in the heat of the moment and acquiring more than you need is a big one.
So we have determined I am more selective with Greenlight than I am with other brands, so where does it fit in the collection now? In the video below I show all I have. A Chevy C10 Camper, a Ford GT, four Airstream Bambis, and now three more castings, the Datsun 510, 240Z Rally, and Bigfoot.
All of these are tremendous. I had to add them to the collection. Right now Greenlight has done the best current generation Ford GT in 1/64, and the only company to do an Airstream Bambi, which is just plain cool. To me they were a little slow out of the gate with their JDM stuff, but the 510 and Rally 240Z they just plain nailed. And Bigfoot? Maybe the best Greenlight model ever.
I get into it on the video. It was a fun one to do, outside of the two cuts I got on my hands while opening them.
