Twilight? wow...umm, uhhh, damn, you couldn't stick to Supernatural and all the cool cars they could offer?
Could be a typo and it should say 1963. Same body style. But you never know with these die cast companies. :wave:The press release says a 1953 Chevy Truck.....although, the one pictured is correct from the movie & is a '64-'66 body style....:wave:
It might be hard to make Mr. Pattinson a 'hunky' action figure. lolI hope that truck comes with a hunky Robert Pattinson action figure, complete with a tiny comb so you can play with his hair. Otherwise it's no sale for me!
Of course neither did the movies! So I wonder just whom the target audience is for Twilight themed diecast?
I would totally agree.I think Greenlight cares little for the relevance of a theme. Instead, they look at what they already have, and ask themselves, "what can we do with this?".
Yeah, Twilight, like Hunger Games, is for young folks. Not much for the diecast enthusiast. But after a little poking around, I've come to see the other side of this argument. There is a market for anything Twilight, Apollo 13, My Favorite Martian, Blues Bros., etc.....pretty much any motion picture. Why? Dunno, not my thing. But it is true. The Simpsons are a good example. I have a friend with a huge collection of their stuff. She has some very cool Simpsons JLs (16 or so) but no interest in diecast. Like her, Twilight fans will buy it because of the association, not because they dig cars. Ya know, collectors are kinda odd.....Yeah, this isn't making much sense to me at all. I know Twilight is hot but I really can't see this line selling well. I can't say the Apollo 13 cars make much sense to me either, but they sound like genius ideas in comparison.
I've never seen the movies and can't say I ever plan to but from the pic of that truck, I think it's pretty cool looking.
I was thinking the same thing, then I remembered the '60 - '63 trucks "A" pillars slanted backwards like a '50s car.Could be a typo and it should say 1963. Same body style.
Right, but the Greelight model is a '64-'66. The A pillar slants the "regular" way.
You beat me to the punch on this....but you're exactly right.....'64-'66 did not have the wrap around windshield like the '60-'63....I was thinking the same thing, then I remembered the '60 - '63 trucks "A" pillars slanted backwards like a '50s car.
