Malibu International was a Hong Kong based company that had been making the "Motorworks" series as the house brand for Walmart in the mid 2000s.

In 2004, there were 5 cars in the series.

In 2005, a new series of low rider cars were added. All the castings are a bit bigger in scale than the traditional 3" diecasts.

Another line of cars were made in 1:87 scale by High Speed called the "Model Collection". The Malibu International logo replaced the High Speed logo on the casting base plates. With the packaging showing a San Leandro, California address for Malibu International.

Another series by Malibu International is called Micron City and includes the Department of Corrections Bus casting.

An unspecified relationship to Trend Syndicate is also noted.
