Ebay Link: Johnny Lightning Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Why I am featuring it: This casting has never been better. The tooling is not new. I believe it first was released around 1999. There are a couple different releases out there and all except for one was released as a Bond car. This is the best looking one by far. The choice of wheels is great (most of the other releases had plastic tires) and the details are sharp. It has a nice metallic black finish as well. All of this gives it a nice premium look and feel.
The Bond films are cool but that is not why I decided to add this to my large Johnny Lightning collection. In fact when I saw that this series was coming out I had absolutely no interest in it… but then I saw it in person and thought damn this looks really good. Hopefully the photographs do it some justice. Snag one of these you won’t be disappointed.
