Hard Body by Tootsietoy – toy cars with full features

July 5, 2020 - by Doug Breithaupt When someone mentions Tootsietoy, most of us picture simple one-piece toy cars with basic wheels. In a previous story, I reviewed these basic cars beginning with the first small-scale die-cast car made by Tootsietoy in 1911. With the introduction of the Hard Body brand name in the late …

Looking for a way to collect Tarmac Works? Maybe start with the RWB Porsches.

(Tarmac Works RWB on ebay) Right out of the gate I am not saying you should just collect the RWB Porsches from Tarmac Works. I am just saying it is a good place to start. Because you won’t finish there. I have been touting Tarmac for awhile now. They have steadily grown each year and …

RESTORED. REIMAGINED. REBORN. MEET THE CRAZY SINGER PORSCHE BY TIMOTHY & PIERRE

This is sick. Crazy. Unbelievable. Astonishing. Enormous. Where to start ? I'm so excited to write about it! Imagine the situation, we have an almost unknown manufacturer with that strange name called Timothy & Pierre (mostly known for their Gemballa Enzo MIG-U1 in 1/18 scale), popping up from nowhere with Singer Porsche models. If that …

The surprisingly spectacular Hot Wheels Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

Before we dive in, let me clarify that title. This is obviously a feature on the new Hot Wheels Panamera, and we are lucky to have a few thoughts from the Hot Wheels Designer who spearheaded this one, but why is it surprising? Lots of reasons. First, the actual car is surprisingly cool. I’ll say …

A Tale of Two: Hot Wheels Silhouettes RWB Porsche 930 & RLC Magnus Walker 964

Let's call this Part 1. Let's also mention that this is not a "vs." post. Comparisons are obvious - these are both premium Porsches - but these two are just awesome together. Plus, I may have already done the "vs" thing on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwJadU5h_9X/ Back to this being Part 1. Part 2, whenever it happens, …

The brand new Hot Wheels Car Culture RWB Porsche has been unveiled. And oh man…

Christian Coujin from RAUH-Welt Begriff dropped this little doozy on IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlvdszTF8Y6/?taken-by=christiancoujin We have seen a lot of leaked images, but here is the completed product.  The RWB Porsche is coming, and will debut in the 2019 Car Culture line, the first of three scheduled premium releases.  I might question the number produced mentioned in …

A tale of two Porsches: The new Hot Wheels 918 Spyder is a major upgrade over the Concept

Porsches have to be hard to replicate in 1/64 scale.  The rounded edges and sloping lines, from what I hear from designers, can be very difficult to shrink into small scale.  The canvas to work with is much smaller, and moving from one point on the car to another in such a small space can …

Super vs Super: 2018 Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5 and 2016 Porsche 993 GT2

The Super vs Super feature continues, with another obvious one.  I will try and get more clever on my pairings, and Porsche vs Porsche isn't clever. Both are Porsches (duh), but they are also racing cars, and sport interesting Real Rider wheels.  It is actually the wheels that made me feel like they were a …

One cool Por-SHUH Super Treasure Hunt this is, this Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5.

Por-SHUH.  Por-SHUH.  Por-SHUH.  Maybe I'll remember it better if I link it to "Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!"  Some of you will get that. I get grief for a lot of things, and my pronouncement of "Porsche" is near the top of the list.  I was defiant at first, as everyone I knew said "Porsche" as a …

Classic, clean and cool: The new Hot Wheels Porsche 356 Speedster

I thought about showing all the new Hot Wheels Entertainment Forza models together.  I guess I already did, but in video form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiuefSElR_Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JcC63jwLOA Those are videos, but come on, you and I both know the photos are more fun.  (Subscribe to the Channel anyway.) So I took photos.  Lots of them, of all five …
