Your first look at the mainline release of the Matchbox Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6…

It's coming, and coming soon.It was back in April that Matchbox hinted at and then unveiled their Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6.  It was big news on several fronts, most notably that Mattel had finally acquired the Mercedes license again.Since then, we have seen the Matchbox SLR McLaren re-released, the Toy Fair version of the 6x6 … Continue reading Your first look at the mainline release of the Matchbox Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6…

M2 Machines is setting the diecast world on its head with the VW Double Cabs…

The little car side of Instagram blew up last night.  Posts started popping up of M2 Machines VW Double Cab finds. Some were lucky and found one of the Chase models, while others were happy to find the set itself.  I don't blame any of them for their excitement, or for all the online chatter … Continue reading M2 Machines is setting the diecast world on its head with the VW Double Cabs…

There is nothing I can say about the FuguZ that hasn’t been said. Other than I think the Hot Wheels version is pretty cool…

I kind of said all I need to say in the title.The FuguZ, a special project by Sung Kang and a slew of other automotive types like Greddy and Nitto Tire, was easily one of the most talked about cars of the last year.  Blogs and magazines and shows and Leno and social media and … Continue reading There is nothing I can say about the FuguZ that hasn’t been said.

Yeah I like the new Hot Wheels Tesla Model X. I like those wheels on it too…

Keeping with a new wheel theme today. I think I made it pretty clear what I feel about the new Deep Dish Steelies on the '56 Ford.  And while I won't proclaim these new sawblade type wheels as game changers, I like them too.  I have a feeling that these wheels will get a mixed … Continue reading Yeah I like the new Hot Wheels Tesla Model X.

The Volkswagen Käfer Racer continues the tradition of Wicked Hot Wheels VWs…

The Hot Wheels C Case isn't going to cause any riots.  The Super isn't a mind-blower, and it isn't as loaded with good stuff compared to other batches.(Actually I take that back.  If you count the Target-exclusive Gasser as part of the C Case, there might be riots.  That has been gobbled up as soon … Continue reading The Volkswagen Käfer Racer continues the tradition of Wicked Hot Wheels VWs…

Oh no Car Culture Redliners isn’t JDM! Go get it anyway…

Of course I am setting myself up for grief with a headline like that.  Hopefully now that "JDM Hype" label that Lamley has dealt with has now faded away, and we move on to just "cool diecast hype". Hype or not, Redliners is awesome.  Bigger picture, Car Culture is awesome.  After four assortments in 2016, … Continue reading Oh no Car Culture Redliners isn’t JDM! Go get it anyway…

This photo isn’t black and white. It is just one mean Matchbox Range Rover Evoque…

There are probably a handful of models in your collection that fall in a unique category.  That category?  Models that you like better in 1:64 than in real life.It might be more than a handful.  A $1 price point on a Hot Wheels or Matchbox can make you appreciate something a lot more than maybe … Continue reading This photo isn’t black and white.

I like Porsches. And I like matching Hot Wheels Porsches that look like this.

Here's the pattern.  Or at least it seems to be the pattern.  When a new Hot Wheels licensed casting is released, it is released in a color and deco that replicates or at least mimics a stock color and deco.  After that, all rules are out the window. There are reasons for that.  It is … Continue reading I like Porsches. And I like matching Hot Wheels Porsches that look like this.

Here is the next color of the Matchbox Nissan Skyline (and it totally outshines the 2016 version)…

Found the silver Matchbox Skyline yet?I haven't seen it in stores yet.  Considering Matchbox distribution and only two Skylines per case, I figured it would be hard to find, and it is proving so.  Hopefully we see more and more cases hit the stores as we move to the holidays, and if all else fails, … Continue reading Here is the next color of the Matchbox Nissan Skyline (and it totally outshines the 2016 version)…
