Yep, this is my second Grand National, so once I can find a good wheel set for it it's definitely getting swapped. I think I only have one each of the yellow and orange Porsches, but they would be good swap candidates if I get dupes.Are you planning a wheel swap for the Grand National? I cant remember if you already did the yellow Porsch but looking to forward to it and the orange one if you do!
I'm definitely interested if you can find any more info. If you're interested in having a set I could go back for another to add one to your trade box. They had a ton of them.Interesting find on the Hunson Speed Wheels. We have one of those .99$ stores down aways from one of our Dollar Trees. I have never found diecast there before either but will have to check them out again. Has been awhile since I stopped in. The engineering on them is interesting as well. Both the one piece wheel axle design and the Hunson name sound familiar. I will add both of them to my to do list in the brand listings to see what I can find again.
I don't think they're former Summer castings. They're definitely of the pancake variety. One of them is a match for the Mercedes 300SL in the Way to Celebrate packs though... 👀The GWNT and antelope head almost sound like previous Summer castings! Looking forward to what you find out about them, too.
Thanks! Do you know much about the M2 chases? Do they tend to appreciate after a while? I see that this one is going for about $60 (3x what I paid for it!) on eBay right now, but I might sit on it for a bit if it's likely to go up in value.Congrates on the M2 Chase! I know you will already but be sure to show us what you trade for it - if you do!
I can start a 2021 Mystery thread. I don't know that I'll pick up very many more of this series though, but I'll definitely buy the Lancia if I find it. We'll probably need to rely on others to fill in the gaps, haha.I found that 5 pack with the Bone Shaker in it; yesterday, at the toy show. Are you planning to also do a find thread on the 2021 Mystery cars. Those are the first ones I have seen for this year. Our mix of the Adventure Force 9 packs (well all their castings) still dont match up to what you are finding!
Did you notice the "Clover Leaf" lodo on the Hot Tube? I havent seen that in the Holiday Series in quite awhile either. I didnt find the Aston in the MB mix you did but the Ranchero in blue is a great looking casting. Did you see the Ford Capri - it is a greyish silver body color? Not that great looking but a nice addition to their casting line!
I hadn't looked that closely at the Hot Tub, but yeah, there's a little clover on the side next to the 0317 (March 17/St. Patrick's day). I think it's a clever casting to use for a St. Patrick's Day car. Kind of a "pot of gold." The copyright on the base is 2020, so they must have retooled it. I don't have an older one right at hand to compare it to but I'll try to dig it out later.
I think the Aston Martin is a superb casting. Silver isn't my favorite color for cars, but I think this one looks pretty good in it. Haven't found the Capri yet, but I'm going to pick one up when I do. It's definitely not the best looking car, but I think it's kinda cool. I was pretty happy to find the Ranchero, and I love the color they chose. My dad has an reddish-orange '63 Ranchero that was his daily driver for a few years in the mid '90s until the floor basically rusted out. He's still got it, but it's a couple cars down on the restoration list, lol. Someday it'll get back on the road. But anyway, even though the MBX casting is a '61 it's very similar to the '63, so I try to get all the variations. I still need to find the pinkish one from a couple years ago.
