Here is a first look at the Hot Wheels Ford Trucks 8-car set, which has hit in New Zealand

My friends at the Diecasttvchannel emailed me a couple of days ago to let me know of this find in their home base of New Zealand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmNiH1fisB8 The set looks nice, with the Ranchero the highlight for me at first sight.  We will see when it hits around here, I am assuming at Walmart. Thanks … Continue reading Here is a first look at the Hot Wheels Ford Trucks 8-car set, which has hit in New Zealand

Looking for a place to start with Tarmac Works? Try the Global64 Audi R8.

I have one criticism for Tarmac Works.  I'll get to it in a second. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWMn5g7_6cM   Tarmac Works has had a stellar debut.  The brand is still relatively new, but it has generated an incredible following, especially in Asia.  There are a million reasons for it.  For one, they are accessible.  They are active on … Continue reading Looking for a place to start with Tarmac Works?

The little piggies are here! The first “adorable” Tomica Limited Vintage release is out.

I don't think my excitement for a new release of TLV is a new thing anymore.  It shouldn't be.  Some releases are surely more exciting then others, but there is ALWAYS something intriguing about each release.  That is what quality does.

It has the card art, and it has the looks. Will the Selections ’66 Super Nova Gasser follow the path of the Candy Striper?

No. I'm just answering the question in the title right off the bat.  The purple RLC Selections '66 Nova, which arrived at collector's homes this last week, will not garner the same secondary market prices that accompany the Candy Striper '55 Gasser these days. But who cares!?!?! This thing is BEEE-YOOOOUUU-TEEEEE-FULLLLLL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbUTvx0g4E Gasser hype nada. … Continue reading It has the card art, and it has the looks.

Yes, the Matchbox opening-features models are coming. They just got teased.

You don't think I have been asking as well? I get a lot of messages about the Matchbox opening features models previewed at last year's Gathering of Friends.  Ever since that preview we haven't heard much.  Whenever I was asked, I just said I assumed they were coming, and would wait with everyone else to … Continue reading Yes, the Matchbox opening-features models are coming.

But don't forget this young buck.  Tomica Limited Vintage turns 15.  Hooray!  If we can get this pouty teen off their Snapchat for a minute, we will surely celebrate.
