    Picked up the basic 2019 HW Aventador J, had a nice conversation with the cashier about how weird of a casting it is.

    It's a nice casting, too bad the $TH and the Zamac would be expensive to get a hold of, otherwise I would try to get a full collection of them.

    Thoughts on the new Walmart basic Tomica?


    From my perspective, I don't think they will sell well because of the models they picked out, most of which don't appeal to Americans, such as the Toyota Prius and Suzuki Swift. I feel like the Nissan GTR is probably going to be the most popular out of the batch. Tomica's premium line would do better in the US, as it contains vehicles like sports cars and classic cars, which I assume Tomy likes to save for their upscale premium line, and also has better detailing as well. They also cost like 5 bucks, which could also buy you a premium Hot Wheels, so I don't think they will compete that well.

    New arrivals: two 1:24 Citroën 2CVs (you can never have too many 2CVs!) by Welly, a 1:64 (?) Dodge Challenger Hellkitten by Majorette and a pretty 1:43 Alfa Romeo 164 by Minichamps.

    A few years back the basic Tomica cars had a brief stint over here in the UK with the ‘Hypercity Rescue’ series (which also had its own anime btw), they didn’t sell too well and they never tried here ever again - can’t say it’ll be the same over in the US. Looks like Tomica are trying to cater to the American market a little more than what they did over here, especially with that ‘American Giga Potato’ truck.

    Bought my first 1/18 model today. Its a original Audi collection car wich normaly sells for 100 euros got it today for 30 because they stopped making it and now are clearing theyr inventory. A friend of mine got a 1/43 Audi RS3 also Discounted from 40 euros to 13 euros. So if youre ever in germany in autum go to the audi museum and get a good deal on model cars.

    Collecting continues to be difficult due to the lack of stock in brick and mortar stores. Empty shelves all around. No sign of premiums in as long as I can remember here, which sucks because that off road car culture set is one of my favorite premium lines in recent years. Probably end up getting that online sooner or later.

    However, on the barren pegs of Brooklyn I noticed these two. I heard this release had a wheel variation, though the mismatched wheels suggest this is an error rather than a variation. I rarley go out of my way to get variations/errors, but when one is on the pegs infront of me I may as well...

    First stuff worth mentioning in a while
    image.jpg

    Mandatory quality report:
    The Blue F-100's front axle is actually too long and has a lot of play. The bed doesn't line up great with the cab.
    The Tan GMC 4x4's bed is angled downwards a little.
    The others seem fine actually. They don't all roll great, but that isn't the point of these.

    That Dodge Custom dwarfs the JDM cars. It's really weird to see it next to an M2 Machines Datsun Bluebird. The thing is as long as the F-100

    New TLV Evolution VI. The last of the Evolutions from the TLV line.
    Whether or not they'll re-release them in more colours further down the line is anybody’s guess. I was half hoping for a TME Evo but it doesn't look like there will be one. yet.

    Walked into one of the Targets by my University. Collector there with a fresh L-case. He got the Tesla Super. That hurt to watch; the only supers I have are the Datsun that everyone got at the last Kday and the ugly gold Viper from 2017 Then and Now (yes I know supers occasionally come up second hand for cheap, but I prefer buying basics from before I started collecting when I have the budget to get second hand stuff).

    He gave me a Chiron as a consolation at least, which is nice. I didn't think I'd ever get one with how obsessive scalpers are with it.

    N case goodies I got (the column of 4 is what I got from the guy in my above comment, other 2 were from today. Lot's of new stock on the pegs for once, but I know that guy was looking at cases before they hit the pegs so I didn't bother looking beyond what was in front)

    Went to another store by University and found 4/5 of Street Tuners. As much as I love JDM, I'm not really feeling this one, except for that BRZ.

    Off topic: funny article I found while wondering how many of these were actual JDM and how many were just Japanese:

    I got a Corvette Grand Sport the other day, I was taking a closer look at it while logging it on my spread sheet and noticed the area around the grille is having some pitting issues. Reminds me of a HW Ford GT I have where the grille is half melted.

    I was so excited to find that Alpine that I couldn't even wait to leave the store to take this pic. Hopefully someday I'll find a second to have a loose one. Why did Mattel put all the cool stuff in the last couple of cases of the 2019 model year?

    Edit: got a better photo

    Got some goodies today

    Misc:

    Some older stuff. Not a batmobile fan but I if see older stuff hanging on the pegs that I don't have then I'm picking it up.
    480AF0E8-2BEA-42A6-AC4E-A5D00A92D325.jpeg
    And the ones that shocked me. The two I really wanted from F&F off road are the Camaro and Defender. Stop # 1 had a single Hummer, Defender, and Subaru. Stop # 2 had no Subarus or Hummers but plenty of the other 3.
