Another Estate Wagon Series, Another Rad New Wagon Tooling From Greenlight

Some of us when we were kids were “lucky” enough to go on some family road trips. Some of us that went on family road trips got to ride in a nice big station wagon. If you fall somewhere around my age group or older you might have experienced some long drives to visit family […]

Narrowing Down Greenlight’s Wide World of Wheels.

I’ve been marching to the beat of Greenlight’s drum since 2009, and in the years following, I’ve freed hundreds of cars from their blister prisons. Of course, once I was done admiring them, they were bagged and tagged and relegated to Rubbermaids in my detached garage. I will occasionally dig through the body bags and […]

Where it all began – the Welly Trabant 601S.

Hello Lamley readers! My name is Alex. I’m 29, from the UK and it’s safe to say I’m blown away that John gave me the opportunity to share my odd little hobby with you all! Cars and diecast have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My hobby […]

Showcase: Hot Wheels Team Transport RWB Porsche 930

Remember that post last week, where I compared my blog prowess to that of an overzealous gym-goer hitting the weights for the first of maybe four times to satisfy a New Year’s resolution? This post might be gym visit number 3, as I have done a decent job so far in 2020. Actually, the Lamley […]

Matchbox Monday – A look at the first 2020 Superfast batch

Well It’s about time I start earning my keep around here. Many years ago, John set up the Lamley Group to be a joint venture between himself (John Lambert “LAM”) and myself (David Tilley “LEY”). It was actually based off a signature we both set up years before that on a Matchbox message board as […]

Hot Wheels Car Culture enters its FIFTH year with Door Slammers. After so many hits and misses, is CC Hot Wheels’ most successful premium line ever?

Obviously I don’t know the sales and revenue numbers, but let’s ask that question in the title from a collector perspective. Entertainment and Pop Culture have lasted longer, and thankfully done well, but Car Culture seems to be on a different level entirely. For those that have collected for at least the last 15 years […]
