VW Samba Van

One of many popular castings to collectors is this samba van,
or its other name; T2 Bus, produced in 1951! surprisingly i could still see it on the road sometimes,
and in a very good condition too.
in fact, my friend even told me any VW car is a collector's item..
so if u wanna start in a new brand of diecast start with its VW first, he added..heheh
Not my 1st Maisto by the way but the 1st one to be loosed and taken pics of.
Maisto has improve a lot lately in its new releases of cars.
for the retail price of rm18-20, it is a good rival to Hot Wheels Speed Machine series and maybe even Tomica Limited, especially since new models of Tomica Limited have been a little bit boring lately to me..heh

The chrome engine is really cool..heh
The top part has a separate piece that could be open if u want to see the interior
but it will need a little bit of work though.
Anyway there are many variants for this casting by now..just grab if u like it! :)

One of it is the second color Evo X! lovely!

Speed Machines: McLaren F1 GTR

HotWheels Speed Machines is getting more and more interesting with each wave.
this time featuring yet another new casting which is the Mclaren F1 GTR.
Used to be the fastest and the most expensive road car before the Bugatti Veyron comes into production. The one thing unique about this car is of course the driving position which is in the middle, imitating the F1 concept.

While the tampo of this version isn't really to my liking, it still looks pretty enough and the casting itself is really good. Anyway one good news for sure is, now not only Mr. Bean can own it, we can too!! LOL XD
