I have all but given up on finding interesting cars in person. My local supermarkets and Walmart’s are disappointing.
I recently received this new roadway - basically a giant mousepad. I found this on Taobao, an extremely addictive e-commerce site that is basically the Chinese version of eBay/Amazon.
So, I haven’t posted in a long time, but here is an F-Toys Skyline and a Tomica GT-R.
I took a trip to Seoul, Korea recently, and here are some of my diecast finds.
I haven’t posted in ages, but here’s a Corgi tram I got in England.
My local Fred Meyers, Targets and Walmarts usually have the basic Hot Wheels selection — no redlines, no real riders, no dump bins to paw through. Recently, I found a couple of Euro Styles: the BMW at Fred Meyer, and the Fiat at Walmart.
Just a quick Acura Integra custom - a gift for my former coworker who’s moving to Wisconsin. This coworker is the one who got me into diecast collecting a year or two ago. Now, he has well over a thousand Hot Wheels, all in their original packaging.
I’ve nearly bought a new real-life car. However, for reasons I won’t detail here, I’m waiting for the dealer to fully disclose any and all deviations from OEM on a very low-mileage late-model vehicle before I drive it home.
I don’t take my own advice. Despite knowing that the F-Toys Japanese Classic Car Selection Vol. 1 cars were mediocre at best, and despite the frustration of trying to attach their ridiculous side mirrors, I bought Vol. 2.
Apparently I’m feeling a little warped tonight.
One of these days, there will be natural light when I get home from work. Until then, there will be more poorly lit photos.
So, dark PNW evenings make photos tricky. My recent attempts at capturing the Tomicarama diorama have annoyed me - my light sources gave great evening light to the parking lot, but the Apollo building remained shrouded in darkness.
I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of big ol’ trucks on the road. When driving, the massive trucks are gargantuan behemoths, vehicles to be avoided.
After the “Which 1:18 should I buy?” post a while ago, I impulse-bought the OttoMobile Audi Coupe GT. Yeah, I own the real thing... so why not nab it in miniature?
A selection of storage boxes from Daiso (omfg, Seattle Daiso pales in comparison to the wonders of SoCal Daiso). Stackable wonders at $1.50 per. I shall attempt elaborate architectural wonders.
Got this wall-mounted storage for Christmas. Finally got around to hanging it today.
Had enough of the metallic red cars? Here’s all of my race-styled cars.
A cheap ($4.99) Kyosho and Harriet the cat.
Tomica Limited Vintage Toyoace— Seino Transportation, if I recall correctly. Plus the Kaido racer we all love!
My favorite brown Matchbox Toyota and a brown 240z. Plus some Greenlight garage props in the background!
