Corgi Vanguards

Corgi cock up again…….

Set your watch, mark it on the calendar, do whatever you need to do.The Jul – Dec 2017 range launch is coming soon! pic.twitter.com/m9HpspwrNv — Corgi (@corgi) June 16, 2017 If this was on the John Lambert blog, that clown would be getting all giddy over the forthcoming releases this week. Thankfully, he doesn’t really…

Another poor show for the Vanguards range.

Oh dear, oh dear……… OK, I am a little late to the party on this one, but it is time to cast my musings on the latest Vanguards releases for 2017. I have mentioned before that I used to look forward with much anticipation with the releases for the year, but as of late, this…

My projects for 2016

This year I have about 4-5 projects going on at the moment that I wanted to share with you. Nothing big, but should keep me occupied for the next 12 months: 1) Matchbox1-75.co.uk I am no longer interested in Matchbox and have been totally out of the loop in 2015. Hence my first website is…

It is not going to be a good year for Corgi Vanguards.

FFS. I have written about this before, but the same shit seems to be happening now for the last 2-3 years. Hornby have recently released the first half of the Vanguards range for 2016 – and once again, what a total disappointment it is. Within the 2016 releases I see nothing but a bunch of…

Updating Corgi Vanguards

2015 Vanguards are released

So we now have confirmation of the Vanguards releases for 2015. At one stage this was a firm favourite of mine looking at the website and seeing what goodies were going to be available for me over the first 6 months of the year. How different a situation it is for 2015…….. VA10107 Triumph Stag…

Corgi Vanguards – VA13200 – Vauxhall Astra MK2 GTE 16V (Steel Grey)

Corgi – by many a collector – have been hitting bad times. There have been a spate of cancellations and some rubbish castings – no one wanted the E30 BMW, yet this was deemed as part of British Motoring Heritage?? Matchbox had the right idea under Tyco ownership and produced the 2nd Gen Astra GT/E…

Corgi Vanguards – Blue and Red 309 GTi’s

So I blogged recently about the Miami Blue 309GTi by the Corgi Vanguards range which I got recently, I thought it would be a good opportunity to get both the 309’s I have side by side. Many people moan about these inclusion to the Vanguards range, but I think that they are worthy. And a…
