My short business trip haul - 2010/09/26

i was in taipei for a very short business trip last week. just manage sneak into the Sogo department store in the city and this is what i bought from there. was surprise to found the DD hanging on the rack. DD is not taipei hot wheels collector cup of tea? hehe.

hot wheels is selling about RM7.50 there. the star wars lego was about RM50 compare to RM109.90 in malaysia. :D
bought this custom beetle because it has openable rear hood which is kind of rare and hard to find variation in malaysia.

and these 2 is what i like the most among my haul - takara tomy pete custom garage DM-19 and DM-20. :)

i was really attracted to the detail of this cars. it has so much of details, plus the tampo are neetly and nicely printed on the car. this easily put on shame to some of the more expensive and sloopy tampo of hot wheels cars.

click on the individual pic to see the pic in bigger size to appreciate the detail that maisto has put into this casting. :)

see the comparison between the real cars. the real cars Photos Copyright ©2008 Dan Roth / Weblogs, Inc.

maisto has done a really good job on this casting which in my opinion is almost 95% accurate compare to the actual car it self. i must say i'm really impressed!

so next time while you are hunting for hot wheels cars, make sure you slow down your footstep and take a look at some of these maisto cars as well. some of the casting are beautiful and really worth every penny you spend on them. :)

Hot Wheels Speed Machines - Ford Shelby GR-1 (Blue), Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept (Grey)

recently there was another new hot wheels speed machines series wave that hitting our shore. well it might be new wave but all of the cars that came in this new wave are repeating of the previous wave that has been landed in our shore before, except the grey Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept.

except the colour and wheels, did you see any differences between the Ford Shelby GR-1 and Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept? i don't see any differences... =.=""

initially from the glance of it, i didn't find anything special on this car. but upon closer look, the cars seems like painted in spectraflame paint (similiar to those paint use for TH$ cars) which given some shining look when it reflected the light at certain angle. well i might be wrong though, but at least it did convince me to fork out RM15 for it. :p

some of the errors cars that i bought from this new wave. can you spot the error? hehe.

also bought is this hot wheels colour shifter Piranna Patrol Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. i wish it was difference colour intead of yellow in room tempreture. because earlier on there's already another version of this casting that's in yellow colour in room tempreture.
