Luxury Van

I been eyeing this luxury van for a while. Until lately I found it is selling at RM 30 in one of the mall at KL. (usual price is about RM 50 to 60 each)

This 1/64 Silver Nissan Elgrand made by Hot Works.
I like : the detail on their exterior of the van and the steerable front wheel, extra wheel set and a nice display box with red carpet.
The dislike : the wheels are not rubber tyre, none of the door can be open.

This 1/64 White Toyota Estima made by Hot Works.

I was very surprise when I open the cover of the display case and found the Toyota logo and all the words are not printed word but is super mini sticker. The Estima words are not fully stick properly. I try to fix it, but still not fully straight yet. (I still like it because is very detail)

Hot Wheel "BAT Stuff" is coming again


Mattel just recently released the "prototype blueprints" for the soon-to-be-released 1966 BAT-BOAT WITH TRAILER. Now of course they will also be releasing about 12 new 1:50 Scale Batman Batmobile Cars too, including the boat. One of them will be a re-release of the 1966 Batmobile but it will have a special trailer hitch on the back to haul the Batboat. Personally, I can't wait because these are just really great collectibles! ( Click the above image for a larger photo ).

Weird Findings.

I was shopping two days ago and I happen to found this weird five pack kit from Speed Metal. The packing is short of one car in this packing. The car that catch my eye, of cause is the 1962 Lime green VW Beetle, made by Match Box. The packing is short of one car in this packing. I really don't mind to pay for it for RM 11.90, even for that one Beetle.

For just looking at this lime green Beetle is really refreshing. It does not have any detail on the front & rear lights, come with yellow interior, bumper and base. I will post up all my 1/64 scale VW Beetle soon,

Hot Wheels Mitsubishi Double Shotz.

This Mitsubishi Double Shotz is my favourite among the others DC cars from HW. I got the black car here and the white car over at Singapore last year. I like the twin engine design. If I were choose between the two cars, I will prefer the black Mitsubishi. Black and metallic red make the car look soon cool and it also have the Mit's logo at the side of the car.

My Two Firebird

The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002.
In 1976, Pontiac celebrated their 50th Anniversary, and a special edition of the Trans Am was released. Painted in black with gold accents, this was the first anniversary Trans Am package and the first production Black and Gold special edition. In 1977, Pontiac offered the T/A 6.6 Litre 400 (RPO W72) rated at 200 hp (150 kW), as opposed to the regular 6.6 Litre 400 (RPO L78) rated at 180 hp (130 kW).
This 1/64 scale, 1977, Pontiac Firebird is made by Johnny Lightning. It is silver in colour with Firebird logo printed on the hood, Rubber tire with printed words, open hood and a mini poster of the real car itself.

The fourth generation F-body continued the aerodynamic formula initiated by the previous generation but it fell victim to declining sales. As before, the Camaro kept the exposed headlights and the Firebird its pop-up units, with some minor changes. The overall styling of the Firebird more strongly reflected the "Banshee IV" concept car than the 1991 "face lift" received by the Third Generation model.

1999 marked the 30th Anniversary of the Trans Am since it's release in 1969, and Pontiac commemorated this event by creating another white Anniversary Edition Trans Am. This commemorative package came with twin blue stripes which more closely patterned the original paint scheme of the 1969 Trans Am. Along with the stripes, blue streamline graphics were added on the sides and blue anodized wheels were included with this package.
The final model year of the Firebird, 2002, offered a distinctive "
Collector's Edition" Trans Am, painted yellow. Like the Chevrolet Camaro, the Fourth Generation Firebird and Trans Am were built in Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, and the plant closed down after producing the last F-body cars. This marked the 35th anniversary of the F-Body cars since their initial release.

This is my second 1/64 scale, 2002, Pontiac Firebird is made by Johnny Lightning. It is Yellow in colour still with a Firebird logo printed in front of the car(smaller), very nice wheels, open hood and a mini poster of the real car itself. It is a very detail as specially the rear lights.

A Great Gift

Special Tomica Disney collection
This Tomica was given by a good friends (Kew & Joe). When they was having their honeymoon to Japan 2007. It was just given to me last night, when me and my wife was visiting Kew's. I was so happy & excited when Kew take it out from one of his drawer and give it to me. I then quickly show it to my wife with Joe on the other room and she was also excited about this cute little Pooh truck.
This Tomica Disney collection is only sell at Tokyo Disney Resort and the entry fee's to is about RM 180. Not sure Disney HK got any special Tomica Disney collection? The price of this Pooh truck is 750 yen, which is about RM 30.
This truck has a bee on the top of the truck, just like the 2008 car. White wall tire, nose hood, side mirror ears, big barrel of honey mixer behind with HUNNY words on it and some sticker for the truck. The box print out is also different from the normal Disney collection.

Tomica Collection

This is some of my earlier Tomica collection. It is call the Bow series and it has a set of three. Brought it back in 2004, at the warehouse sale. Got it for RM5 each at that time, it may looks old from the box outside. But at the inside it is in very good condition.

This Bow series come with a normal Tomica but with a special paint job, a big display case, aluminium Tomy logo and some write up about the car(in Japanense), a mini poster.

May be someone can help to translate the Japanese word for me.
