I’ve been to three Walmart locations in the last two days, and I’ve come across some great stuff at two of them. The first, obviously being Cargo Carriers. Those have been hitting both Walmart and Target.
With the possibly impending complete closure of Toys R Us retail operations in the US, and the slow downward spiral of Kmart, I feel now may be a good time to look at and discuss the diecast market here in the US.
...because, apparently, Majorette Series 3 is hitting stores (that aren’t currently in the middle of going out of business sales), including the US debut of the Vision Gran Turismo series.
I know I am! I know not everyone has a Kmart near them, and for those of you who don’t, but were able to order a case (or 2...or more) online, this post could help you, too.
Ghost Games announced today that online free roam will be coming with the next update, which will be rolled out tomorrow.
...First To Markets, that is.
...don’t get me wrong, their Nissans and Datsuns are great, but they’re only the tip of the iceberg with vintage Japanese metal, both domestic and export models.
It was announced today that over 100 more Sears and Kmart locations will be closing this spring.
It’s 2018, which means a new group of cars will be legal for import into the US this year.
...still no D case models at my local Walmart, but they DID stock up on the new Star Wars cars (thankfully the majority of the bin was still mainlines, though they’re C ones), and on top of that, the new 9 car Gift Packs are in.
If you haven’t hit up your local Target lately, I’d suggest getting over there ASAP, because they’re getting D cases in.
As we all know, 2017 has been a pretty good year for diecast, and 2018 is already looking to be one of the best we’ve had in recent memory.
I picked up the game on day one (Deluxe Edition, that is), and have played through the story already. So, lately I’ve just been working on some project cars for fun.
The Lamley Group posted up a K-Day case unboxing, and it’s an interesting one...
I’m sure you all know of the many different kinds of cars in Japan that can be found on Goo-Net Exchange, but how about some of the oddities and hidden gems that can be found on the site when you look at listings marked ‘Other’.
...and that means today is my birthday! Here’s to the big two-five!
...you know what that means, right?
When people talk about importing Japanese cars to the US or Canada, they usually talk about either sports cars like the Nissan Skyline and Silvia, or little kei trucks and vans like the Daihatsu Hijet, Suzuki Carry, or Subaru Sambar.
Sadly, no pictures, partially because I didn’t have my camera on me, but also because it was on the road.
