The last few days has been a toy fest in NYC. February means the New York Toy Fair, which is a massive gathering of toymakers and retail reps, previewing all that is to come. Every year a good friend of mine, Tim Pagano of MVE Collectibles, heads over to check out all the goodies, and … Continue reading M2 Machines previews Auto-Japan Series 2 at the New York Toy Fair
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. I wish they would stop making me want these larger scale models.
This is a release I had to write about. M2 Machines releasing a new Auto-Trucks mix is not necessarily huge news. But when the new Chevrolet C60 is part of that set, it's news. At least for me. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbcuk7uB2M6/?taken-by=m2machines My approach to M2 is simple. Pursue all the Auto-Japan, and snag all the other models … Continue reading The latest M2 Machines Auto-Trucks is out. I’m staring at the new Chevrolet C60

You will like what I am going to write. I am very excited about the upcoming Car Culture Japan Historics … Continue reading I’m locked in with Auto-Japan from M2 Machines. LOCKED. IN.

A month ago I was all about M2's new Auto-Japan, then Auto World sent over the Lead Sled, plus I've been hunting Red Editions, and JCCS is coming, and the Hot Wheels Convention, and HW Modern Classics is coming. … Continue reading M2 Machines unveils Auto-Japan Series 2, upcoming 1/24 scale Datsun 510
Another heads up for you Mooneyes collectors. (That includes me, and interestingly enough, my 11-year-old daughter.) On the heels of the Mooneyes Walmart-exclusive set that hit last month, M2 Machines has released the Hobby Exclusive Mooneyes set as well. And it is available now at SURPLUSgoodies: M2 Mooneyes Hobby Exclusives at SURPLUSgoodies I really like … Continue reading The “Hobby-Only” M2 Machines Mooneyes set is now out.
There are two questions that come up with M2, and they have definitely come my way with the new Auto-Japan series: How do they compare with other small scale models size-wise? How is the quality, and do they roll? Well, let me answer those. In order to answer them, I need to open them. So … Continue reading I opened the M2 Machines Auto-Japan models (Chases too), and they are even better.
Don't say it. DON'T SAY IT!! This is not Lamley Hype. This is not JDM Hype. This is not a diecast manufacturer just trying to tap into the JDM buzz. This is a new set of tremendous models from M2. This is M2 reflecting the interests of the car world, and nailing it. This is … Continue reading M2 Machines goes JDM with the new Auto-Japan Walmart Exclusives. Here is a preview.
