Autech for June 2018 in TLV

I’m all for manufacturers recasting a model again, and to make a pretty good job of it, but sometimes it can be a bit repetitive. However the Skyline R33 four door Autech version is probably one of those most enigmatic of JDM’s with performance and power to match the an M5 or such. Such a…

After a long while….

After a long time, there were some fresh MB’s in Migros – 2017 releases I believe. I don’t buy them often, but if there are licensed car castings, then I will pick them up – I am staying away from the generic tut. My musings on the BMW i3 will follow shortly, but initial impression…

Disney Pixar Cars: M.A. Brake Drumm

Usual roundy character casting from Mattel is this, and nothing really to ride home about bar from the fact it is just another character for the collection. I wanted to add this one to the Pixar collection, but in all seriousness, this is for the hardcore – you will not miss anything if you do…

Hot Wheels – ’95 Mazda RX-7

The only other RX-7 I have is the Matchbox version. This one looks a little Fast And Furious which is the appeal somewhat. Good casting, I like the licensed tampos, however I have seen the blue version and thay looks a lot smarter stock as per this Instagram pic from Kiwidiecastcollector The first 2 mainline…

Hot Wheels – ’82 Nissan Skyline R30

What a choice of a casting!  I really don’t know if Mattel have the adult collector in mind when choosing these castings, but this is brilliant. JDM has made an entry into HW culture but often they are charactures with bad paint schemes aimed at the core market. What is delightful about this is that…
