I’m typing this while sitting at the Hot Wheels Convention at the LAX Marriott, but my mind for the moment is on orange.
Hot Wheels isn’t the only brand having an event this weekend. The Matchbox Toy Show in Leipzig, Germany, is also this weekend. Abe Lugo from the Matchbox Team is there, previewing all kinds of cool stuff, and as always, there will be a charity auction.
Every year an auction is held, and unique items are donated from around the world, including from Mattel. And this year Mattel brought the goods, with several preproduction models, including several Moving Parts models for folks to bid on.
I put photos of the Mattel items below, and I have a link to all the lots as well. Why am I doing this? Because you can bid as well, no matter where in the world you are.
If you have any interest in these items, email Dirk Schleuer at Dirk.Schleuer@gmail.com and tell him what you are interested in, and he will take it form there. You have until October 4th – tomorrow – so get to it.
I am hoping to post some news from the event as it comes out. Stay tuned.
