The Facebook groups and Instagram posts have been buzzing for months about the mysterious Hot Wheels ID cars...and we didn’t really know a lot until they dropped last weekend. I was on vacation in sunny Florida when they were released, and I was super nervous they’d be sold out before I would be able to get some. So…
The Dayton, Ohio toy show was last weekend, and while smaller than it once was, there were still a ton of good buys to be had...especially for loose cars.
I was lucky enough to snag two of the new Tomica Limited Vintage F40s on preorder and the car may very well be the Mona Lisa of 1/64th scale cars. It. Is. Magnificent. The scaling, body lines, opening parts, that accurate interior, the light detailing — it’s perfezione assoluta. Enough with the chit-chat! Here’s some…
I recently bought a few lots of original orange Hot Wheels track and about 20 out of 38 sections I got yesterday were very sun-baked. I made a 50 foot track in my driveway today and there were a few casualties. RIP orange track.
My 1/64th scale collection numbers deep into the thousands, but I had yet to secure a Tarmac Works car — until today. The limited edition RWB 930 Apple got delivered and it was worth every penny. From the packaging to the Porsche’s uber good details, this apple is straight-up golden delicious.
Matchbox is coming in hot to 2019 with the long-awaited return of opening parts, and in this case, an opening hood on a brand new sunshine yellow Honda S2000.
Between the holidays and doing a ton of photo and video work, I haven’t had any time to photograph diecasts...and have literally bought hundreds of cars in the past few months, so it was tough to pick one for a few quick photos tonight. But I ended up choosing a recent toy show find: a Matchbox 1985 Firebird Racecar.
2018 has been one of the best years for Hot Wheels collectors in recent memory, and 2019 is already shaping up to be another fantastic year. We’ve been teased with several new JDM models, transporters sets, new collaborations like RWB, and even opening hood/door models and castings with adjustable suspension. But in a…
Bigfoot is officially back!!!!
If you grew up during the 80's and 90's, you’ll know the radness that was the blue card era. Hot Wheels and Matchbox had some of the raddest cars out there, and they make for perfect era-correct specimens for Radcast week. I tried to use cars which were produced and purchased during the era to make things more…
Me and the wife made the nearly three hour trek over to Indianapolis today in order to attend the 3rd annual Greenlight Diecast Collector Event. I hadn’t been before and didn’t know what to expect, but was glad I went. Among a TON of diecasts of all shapes, sizes and colors, they debuted the 1/64 and 1/43 Bigfoot…
You could say I took a big bite out of my diecast bucket list today....
While out hunting at a local Wal-Mart I stumbled upon a new M2 Datsun in a cool Goodyear livery. I have a few of M2's other Japanese releases, but this is the first one I’ve really opened and enjoyed. Pictured with an M2 lift, Greenlight Mechanics Corner, and Accessory Pack accessories.
Due to a drastically changed work schedule this week I totally dropped the ball on purple day and couldn’t make up my mind on what I wanted to post for today....so here’s some randomness for wildcard day.
I had planned to post a custom stanced Porsche, but wasn’t digging the lighting in the photos, so boom: Bandit it is. Trans Ams are never a bad option.
My entry for today’s “silver” day is a custom Revell 1955 Chevy Two Lane Blacktop replica in 1/64th scale —— in a dull silver i.e. primer ha. Pictured in action with Greenlight’s Two Lane G.T.O. I didn’t have extra time today for a bunch of photos, but I’m sure these two will be seen again in the future.
I’ve been dreaming about making a real-life drift truck that resembles a retired Bigfoot, accordingly nick-named LEADFOOT....so I decided to make a 1/64th scale version first and debut it during car week. This is my blue day entry:
Posting this later than I wanted, but better late than never! My white entry into car week is a vintage Tomica TOMY Porsche 936 Turbo in a red/blue Martini livery, that I picked up a few weeks ago at a Hot Wheels Show for $5.00. Set-up in a Greenlight STP garage with Accessory Pack tools.
“Hell hath no Fury...like a 1958 Plymouth” - tagline for the 1983 movie, CHRISTINE.
Everyone is sharing Car Week teasers so here’s one of mine — in black + white so it remains mysterious haha!
