Hot Wheels, M2 Machines and Majorette die-cast photography.
Page 2 of 5
I updated the Hakosuka Skyline I customized last year. I changed the wheels from a original set of MonoBlock wheels to the new ones they launched with tire letters. For this particular swap, I decided to go with the gold chrome wheels with “Toyo Tires” written on them.
Well, it has been a while. I got somewhat lazy and with my job being so busy I really didn’t had much chance to post anything here.
A couple of days ago I was in Colorado for my vacations (the pictures I took over there are going up another day) and on my way back to the hotel I stopped by a Wal-Mart and found a complete set of the M2 Machines Auto Japan series. Unfortunately no chases were found here (I doubt I’ll ever find a M2 chase in the wild).
The series consists of 6 cars total and all of them are Nissan’s, and are the following:
1969 Nissan Bluebird 1600 SSS
1969 Nissan Bluebird 1600 SSS Race
1970 Nissan Fairlady Z Z432
1970 Nissan Fairlady Z Z432 Race
1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R
1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R Race
I will be separating this into 3 post’s, with the first one dedicated to the Bluebird.
Woke up to a beautiful Monday morning, I then hopped on my motorcycle and headed towards Walmart. When I arrived there I decided to go to the HotWheels section, now this particular Walmart sucks when it comes to restocking HotWheels (always old stock).
But today was different, there was a whole dump box full of the 50th Anniversary Camaro sets. Now, I’m wasn’t that interested in the set to be actively hunting for them, but I still decided to check how the casting looked in person.
I personally think that all of them are kinda meh, yet I still grabbed a couple of them, 2 ’67 Camaro (the hardest one’s to find as per Reddit), 1 Iroc-Z and a ’95 Camaro.
Out of the today’s haul, I’m going to be highlighting the ’67 Camaro.
One thing to notice about this particular casting is that it’s a metal on metal cast (metal body and metal base) and that the hood opens. The rest of the series uses a plastic base.
