A countryside drive and a look at Majorette’s Toyota Celica GT Coupe

I've been looking forward to finally getting a Majorette into my writing. And what a place to start.

There has been a TON of Nissan GT-R released in 1/64. None of them can top Ignition Model’s offering.

Is there such a thing as overkill in the 1/64 world?  Probably. Some might argue the JDM craze we have seen hit almost every brand is overkill.  Not even close.  Maybe some ELEMENTS of the JDM craze, but in general Japanese cars are just filling the gaps that have always been there. Earlier this century, …

Majorette has released its 2018 Catalog. Here are some new model (and wheel!) highlights.

A few days ago Majorette started releasing images of its 2018 Catalog, and it gives us our first look at what is coming.  And there is a lot to like. Of course there are still many details to learn, like when these will be released, and where.  Majorette is at Toys R Us in the …

A look at the brand new Majorette Vintage 5-car Gift Pack

So this cool.  I have been a fan of the Diecast TV Channel for several years now.  Cobra, Eagle, and Falcon have been doing fantastic diecast-related videos from New Zealand for awhile.  And thing is for certain, they share the passion for diecast that has invaded me and many of you. Recently Majorette's Australia office …

Majorette US Series 2 is out at TRU, and a few must-haves are included.

Over the last few weeks, Majorette US Series 2 has hit Toys R Us stores.  The batch is totally different than the first assortment, including the Limited Editions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lxrwWnvvLA I have no idea what models are the 1-per-case limiteds, but maybe you have figured that out.  Limited or not, there are quite a few that …

Here are the three US Majorette models limited to one per case.

My good friend Chuck Wiersma posted this to his Instagram the other day: https://www.instagram.com/p/BWqPby3DqAg/?taken-by=cwiersma63 Chuck explains things better than I can.  The Audi R8, white Nissan GT-R, and Audi A1 are limited to one per case. Majorette doesn't do chase models, but they do make some models harder to find than others.  In the case …

It is finally here! Game of Thrones starts tonight AND Majorette hits the pegs at Toys R Us.

I knew today was an exciting day.  Winter is no longer coming.  It is here.  And Majorette officially returns to the US.  Busy day. My guess is 99.9% of you are not reading this blog for my take on Westeros.  So I will spare you that and talk about Majorette.  Obviously this is not new …

Majorette officially returns to the US and Toys R Us next month. Here is the first release.

It has been a long time coming, but Majorette has officially returned. Now I of course acknowledge our friends overseas, who have been swimming in the Majorette sea since who-knows-when, but let us have our moment.  This is very exciting news. After a very long absence, Majorette is back, and will be sold in the …

A Tale of Two: Mercedes-Benz AMG GT by Hot Wheels & Majorette

Alright, fine.  Because so many of you asked.  The Hot Wheels and Majorette Mercedes-Benz AMG-GT's, together.  In peace and harmony. I will post the pics, and you can do what you want.  It is always interesting to see the reactions.  Ultimately we all like what we like, so deciding definitely on which is better is …

Hmmmmmm, this is interesting.

Toy Fair Report: 2017 Spielwarenmesse Nuremberg (Nuremberg Toy Fair)

There might be a theme these last few days.  Toy Fair reports.I am very appreciative that many of you are willing to send pics and other details over from various Toy Fairs.  The big New York Toy Fair happened last month, and I will continue to post Tim Pagano's reports on various manufacturers throughout the …

Majorette dedicates an entire 5-pack to one casting. Might as well be the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT.

So I wonder how a Hot Wheels or Matchbox 5-pack loaded with the exact same model would fly.  Maybe it depends on the model.  It would be a risk to be sure.  And it won't happen.Themes obviously happen.  Sometimes the models share a similar livery.  Sometimes they come from the same carmaker.  But never the …

If the 2016 Majorette Limited Edition releases are any indicator, 2017 is going to be a great year.

I keep finding treasures as I go through my office closet.  First I came across the red Kyosho Ferraris that I featured earlier today, and a little later I dug out two Majorette sets that I had featured on the Youtube Channel late last year.My work with those wasn't done.  I have wanted to photograph …

Showcase: Majorette multipacks and Limited Edition Series 3…

Some of you will call them chase models.  Majorette calls them Limited Editions.We here in the US are used to the random chase, so that is the barometer we use for chases of all kinds.  And we obsess about them.  Well Majorette does something similar.  They do Limited Editions, and while I haven't totally figured …

Why all the fuss about Mattel and Mercedes? Majorette has had it figured out for awhile…

That Lamley Hype Machine is at it again.  Mattel and Mercedes are dating again and Lamley is like that entertainment reporter following them all over Hollywood trying to get the scoop.Lamley should know that dating Mercedes is nothing new.  Mattel did awhile ago before the ugly breakup, and there have been plenty of others.  Majorette …
