Law and order Dubai style with the Majorette Dubai Police series
About once a year collectors here in the UK rush to TK Maxx stores. Not for the bargain fashion, the horror designer items or the crab shaped desk bells, but for Majorette.

Lamley Daily : Mini GT McLaren Senna
The McLaren Senna is my favorite casting from Mini GT. They nailed it ! Its is a very strange car that is for sure a real nightmare for any designer. The lines are complicated, as well as the glasses, not to mention the lights and this big wing.

After 5 years, the Hot Wheels Mclaren F1 GTR makes its triumphant return.
After a fair amount of clamoring by collectors, the McLaren F1 GTR returns. You may all rejoice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzF_rjXE6RU And I'll join you in rejoicing. Because not only is it back, but it looks tremendous. Looking at it along with the other releases from Speed Machines and Decades, it is like the time gap never happened.
