While there will be a Kyle Larson NASCAR diecast for his win at Michigan, it will NOT come with the CARS 3 logo (speculation is Mattel has the license for the logo on diecasts?) … Guess it shouldn’t be too difficult to add your own tampo decal as they’ll probably just leave the back quarter […]

There is a Jackson Storm Hauler coming – Jackson Storm Transforming Hauler … Thanks for the heads up, “Larry M.” From Mattel, so it’s in scale. Detachable. Presumably as a playset, it’s all plastic (versus Haulers which are part of the diecast lineup). In scale but not very canon interior. Though display-wise it’s canon. The […]

While this video from Matchbox is from the 1960’s – the process hasn’t changed much though of course, the day to day actual procedures have changed – prototypes are not carved from wood anymore … and factory workers tend not to walk around carrying molten zinc in ladles with their bare hands or without eye […]

Thanks for the nice photos, “Jared YYT.” Of course, they’re $25 USD (ouch!!) Fillmore from the box set had a 60’s deco – the single has an opening trunk (with engine compartment) and it looks like headlights! Sally with the playset has working headlights – here it looks like just an engine compartmet opening. Thanks […]

The first of the Crazy 8 Racers at Thunder Hollow are arriving. Thanks for the pics, “Samuel K.” Cigalert (for those that do not live in California – “Sig Alert” is jargon for traffic reporting). Taco We are going to get a lot of diecasts from the hilarious Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 racers scene. Of […]

The Precision Series Sally’s Cozy Cone was rumored to be canceled but DO NOT PANIC. NOT TRUE. It has been moved to SPRING 2018 which makes sense with all the CARS 3 product around. So, save up your money. Still listed on Amazon so you can still look at the pics. Looks pretty huge and elaborate. […]
