By
[22 Nov 2014|One Comment]

If you missed out on the mostly canon Combat Ship from CARS 2, it’s “back” in stock at JC Penney’s. I think the original pricing was around $4o but JC Penney seems to run 25% off coupons + other promotions pretty much every week so the ultimate price should shouldn’t be too far from the […]

Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: Cad Spinner is a Cadillac of Diecasts
By
[21 Nov 2014|5 Comments]

Thanks for the great pics, “John H.” Actually Cad Spinner seems to be a combo of a Cadillac Escalade and a Lincoln Navigator. The rims are a little weak but otherwise, all great. Nicely scaled to Mayday. Compared to the Sarge’s Hut SUV. He’s happy now that gas is $2.99 a gallon. American heavy metal […]

By
[20 Nov 2014|One Comment]

Thanks “Dunroamin” for the nice photos … the Sal Machiani that comes in the 2-pack with Shawn Krash is a variant! While at first glance, you might dismiss his more orange color as just a production difference and maybe not worthy of a major variant status BUT … on closer inspection, the new Sal has […]

Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: Vitaminamulch Box Set is Diecast
By
[20 Nov 2014|2 Comments]

Thanks “MacQueen” for the great early look and confirmation that the Vitaminmulch Chug in the box set is diecast. It was clear that the platform and the stanchions would be plastic but it was hard to tell if Vitaminamulch Chug itself would be plastic or diecast since the description did not specially say diecast as […]
