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 …

Majorette is surely Euro-centric, but not as much as you think…

I have never had any concrete impressions of Majorette.  I just haven't had enough in the collection.  Over the last few years, if you mentioned Majorette, in my head would pop up some generalizations:Hard to find.Opening parts.Focused on current cars.Euro-centric casting choices.So, am I correct in those assumptions?  Sure.  For those of us in the …

Majorette jumps into the Bentley Continental GT game with the V8 S…

On Monday a package arrived.Lots of names and logos on that tape, but there is one that counts for this post - Majorette.  Inside was a pleasant little sight.I have been very excited to get this box, because it is full of very elusive Majorette diecast cars.  At least elusive here in the US.  Many …

Help me! I can’t get myself to open the Majorette Dubai Police 5-car set…

I need some encouragement.The Majorette Dubai Police set is beautiful.  The models are tremendously cool, and it comes is such cool packaging.  And after looking at the set, my thought is once I open it I would have a hard time putting it back together if I wanted to display it.  I just love how …

Complete Look: The entire Lamley Nissan R35 GT-R 1:64 collection…

Time to do another epic post. We have been waiting a long time to feature the various versions of the Nissan GT-R.  We flirted several times with doing it, but when Tomica Limited Vintage announced the Nismo and N-Attack, we figured that would be a good time.We are finally here.  The TLV Nismos were featured …
