Collecting diecast really means keeping up. I have no idea why we do this to ourselves. I mean, do I REALLY need all the M2 Nissan Skylines? Obviously, no. I don't. I definitely is NOT a "seen one, seen 'em all" scenario either. M2 definitely uses its castings, but the variety is pretty exciting. There … Continue reading Building a massive M2 Machines Skyline Collection

Sometimes you don't think too much about what you found. You just find it, enjoy it, and move on. That happened several years ago when I came across a dump bin at a rural Kmart and pulled not one, not two, but seven Super Ford Focus (Focii?). It was there, and I enjoyed the find. … Continue reading This was a first: Knee-deep in sealed M2 cases.
I am still all in on M2's Auto-Japan series. Sure, they have done the same three castings - but all with M2-esque mods - but they have done them all right. The decos follow interesting themes, stay connected, and most importantly, look really good. I just found the next set of Auto-Japan at Walmart, and … Continue reading The second MiJo Exclusives Auto-Japan set from M2 Machines is now out.

I've said it before, and the rule continues. I am ALL IN on M2 Machines Auto-Japan. As space for my collection keeps dwindling, I have to be very specific in what I collect. And with M2's prolific output, I need to be extra picky. They made it easy with the launch of Auto-Japan. Taking my … Continue reading M2 Machines unveils it’s latest 1/24 scale Datsun 510.
