A Tale of Two: Tomica Limited Vintage & Kyosho Mazda 787B’s

A post on the Lamley Group Facebook Group (affectionately known as the Group Group or LGG) reminded me that I took photos of the TLV and Kyosho 787B's back when TLV released their first. So I am going to post them here.  I originally had the #55 replica by Kyosho, but that is now sitting … Continue reading A Tale of Two: Tomica Limited Vintage & Kyosho Mazda 787B’s

Placing the latest wall-display-worthy acquisitions

I do get a lot of stuff each week.  Some store finds, some mail finds, some blog-related content items.  Lots of stuff.

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

1/64 Flatbed Haulers are all the rage. Here are a few of mine.

I thought this would make for a great Saturday Showcase (even though I dropped it on Sunday). It seems diecast flatbed haulers have suddenly become must-haves for collectors.  Team Transport from Hot Wheels obviously has a lot to do with it, but we have seen some fantastic haulers released from several companies over the years, … Continue reading 1/64 Flatbed Haulers are all the rage.

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. One month it might be because a long anticipated model, like the RX-7 coming … Continue reading The little piggies are here! The first “adorable” Tomica Limited Vintage release is out.
