The first Super Chase of 2016 is BUD (RV). Thanks for the great pics, “John H.” Comparison with Larry Camper. \ Thanks “John H.” who adds these additional notes: “Least interesting Super Chase since Ciao Francesco. Sure it’s a new sculpt and a very heavy one with lots of metal, but really devoid of any […]

I’m not sure if these actually made it to retail? Luigi’s Portable House of Tires Carrying Case But in either case, Amazon has it as an ADD-ON item for $2.67 – hard to beat that deal. You can also pick up Ramone’s House of Art Carrying Case for $3.40. Vehicle not included. Tweet This Post

Thanks “John H.” for the nice pics and heads up. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten the classic Mia & Tia in a 2-pack and the good news – they’re pretty much the same as the last release. They return as a one-piece unibody (the lenticulars were segmented faces) AND they even still retain […]

“Jacob H.” spotted these on eBay … if you don’t want any spoilers for CARS 3, 2017 – look away but if you don’t mind a little preview. Is it legit? I would imagine so. There’s no real compelling reason counterfeiters would go to all the trouble to make up a complete fake especially Ramone’s […]

One of the hardest to find diecast “Mini” along with Van (and Purple Ramone) is listed as a TRU Radiator Springs Classic 3-pack … Purple Ramone will probably have a flat windshield so he will be a variant (presumably). I think all these other 3-packs are out? I’m not sure if I’ve seen the Cruisin’ […]

Seems like a weird way to camp but okay … I guess everyone can find you and know when you are changing clothes … Hopefully you remember to bring the air pump, otherwise, you might need replacement lungs afterwards. No surprise, Amazon has a full selection.   Tweet This Post

Thanks, “John H. for the great pics. A NEW Jeff Gorvette Pitty with tool chest plus a repeat release of the crew chief, John Lassetire. He looks essentially the same – there are some slight production differences in the color of the plastic bed but typical for production spaced years apart. The Pitty. Nice with […]
