Thanks “John H.” for the great photos as we wrap up 2016 & 2016½. Alexis Wheelson. Elaborate. It’s too bad the pieces don’t move nor are they removable – which makes sense – you know those crazy diecast collectors, always snapping off pieces and putting it in their mouths … there’s always 5,217 in every […]

Finally cracked open my Precision Series Dirt Track Fabulous Hudson Hornet.   There is a magnet under the display window – nice classy touch – so if you want to show off the display open, the “lid” will stay in place. (Nicer if you remove the bubble). The stand will let you display the three PC […]

Unlike the last movie transition, this time we are getting “new” diecasts right up to the release of CARS 3 … so while it’s 2017 in calendar time, it’s really 2016 ½ for the CARS collector as the “themes banner motif” is continuing until CARS 3 diecasts arrive @May 1, 2017. Today, the 2016 ½ 2-pack […]
