I am impressed you can't find Gran Turismo Hot Wheels in your place. Market is flooded here with Gran Turismo little cars.

Strange indeed, found this from special toy store and even there was just less than 10 cars available. Decided to pick just this one which is the most typical car in Gran Turismo games, Nissan Skyline.

Nice Tesla. I think it's time for a cheap BoS 1:43 of the Model S...

Without fail every time i look on a Hot Wheels shelf or bin in any store there are always a few of these hanging there. Must not be a big seller.

Thanks for the comment, maybe kids who play with these cars still prefer gasoline or diesel engined cars and avoid electric ones :D

Maybe they don't want to get shocked.
And all I ever see buying Hot Wheels are grown men :mrgreen:

Thanks for the comment :)
It may be true that kids today aren't anymore into physical toys but just playing virtual games or not into cars at all. Have seen even news that the amount of youngsters is raising who don't get even a driver's license as soon as they reach the legal age.

I was reading that I very high percentage of kids would rather have a phone than a drivers license but even more shockingly was the majority would rather have their phone in place of having sex.
Kids today are very confused. :roll:

Knight Rider and MacGyver are my two most favourite tv-shows from the 80's so as I already have Knight Rider models, had to have this MacGyver '87 Jeep Wrangler YJ as well :) It's made by Greenlight. Love the MacGyver artwork in the package and the model itself is pretty nice as well for 1/64.
Had to take one photo with the Swiss Army knife, MacGyver kept it with him at all times along with paperclip and duckt tape. Using them, his intelligence and whatever else was on the location, he could fix anything or catch the bad guys :D

Indeed well detailed for 1/64, only mirrors are missing. Would like to have 1/43 MacGyver Jeep as well if it becomes available :)

I had that transit as a child in a few different colours. Loved that casting, happy memories 8-)
I'm not addicted to models, an addict admits their problems & I don't have a problem.

It certainly was. I had the red ford colour scheme like you have, ambulance, british telecom, xp, wella & ryder colours.

I have one of those pickup Mk1's. I bought it when I started collecting.

Recent addition, Subaru WRX STi by Majorette, scale actually 1/58. Not too many Subaru's in my collection before, actually just one, the 1/43 Impreza.
