The Duke

I've got a riddle for you: who is the man featured on four trucks by New-Ray and is also the key to the best Western movies ever?

The second question gave away the answer to the first, right? He's a movie star unlike any other, the embodiment of Western movies, a man that garnered the respect to earn both the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of the handful of individuals to receive both honors. John Wayne is the quintessential tough-guy actor, a man who seemed he could hold his own if the scene were ever to become real.

His image fits well on the trailer of a long haul truck, giving credence to the idea that truck drivers are America's last cowboys. New-Ray has done a wonderful job of capturing his likeness on these 1/32 scale trailers and gives you four to choose from. already has two in stock, the third scheduled to arrive next month, and the fourth to follow.

Take a look and pick your favorite, or grab the first three with plans to collect all four. Whichever your decision, buying one of these trucks is sure to increase your toughness at least tenfold.

Pick a Color!

What is your favorite color? I know my mom likes yellow, my wife likes pink, and I like blue. Clearly, blue is the best out of the bunch. And when I can't find a blue whatever-it-is-I-am-looking-for, well, that's frustrating.

In the diecast market, you often don't get much of a choice when it comes to colors--you get what the company makes. What makes Highway 61's line of 1969 Baldwin-Motion Camaros so different? They have several different colors, they're all beautiful models, and every model is loaded with features that really shine in 1/18 scale:

*Operating Doors, Hood and Trunk
*Detailed Interior
*Detailed Engine and Drive Train
*Functional Steering
*Original Factory Paint Scheme
*Rubber-like tires
*Functional Suspension

It's a combination you just can't beat. And loves unbeatable combinations.

So pick your favorite color or pick them all, either way, you're sure to enjoy these wonderful models.

Hello There, Gorgeous

"It's just so pretty - I gotta have it."  I want to buy it, put it on a shelf with an overhead light, and let it sit there, gleaming in all its Green Chrome glory.

I am sure the first time you saw the chase scene from the movie Bullitt (1968) starring Steve McQueen and Jacqueline Bisset, you probably thought the exact same thing - minus the sitting on a shelf part.  More likely you envisioned driving a car that mean and awesome.

My friend, I am talking about the special edition Bullitt/Steve McQueen 1968 Mustang GT  in, once again, Green Chrome with black interior in the 1/18 scale.  The original Bullitt, as I am sure you will recall, is in a darker color called Highland Green.  Made by Greenlight, this new color is a limited edition run of less than 999 pieces, so it is sure to be a collector's delight.

No doubt about it, this car is gorgeous.  And for pure entertainment value, if you're wanting to revisit that infamous car chase scene, check out the video below.

In the meantime, stop by and say hello!  With over 10,000 items in stock, you're sure to find the next perfect item to add to your collection.

A Collector's Collectable

Tonkin PEM Series Trucks have set the standard in 1/64 scale as one of the longest running lines of diecast collectibles. Sharp graphics, top fleet names and durability are all hallmarks of the brand and continue to make it one of the world's most collected replicas. What makes a PEM Truck different from other 1/64 scale lines? There is typically more than twice as much raw material used on a PEM model - making it significantly heavier than its competitors.

Tonkin Replicas is now adding a very fitting model to the PEM Series: The UPS Freight Volvo Day Cab with 28' Double Pups!

TONKIN - 10-S047 - 1/64 Price = $84.95
Aug - September Arrival

Currently, there is a 1/64 scale version of this truck in the market. This original run was produced for Overnite Freight to celebrate their merger with UPS Freight. Tonkin produced a few of these very quickly and overnighted them to UPS for the event. is thrilled to offer the latest release to the UPS Fleet Series from Tonkin. This new version includes several small changes to base decoration, including some minor printing adjustments. A knowledgeable collector will be able to distinguish which unit is the original run and which one is part of this new run. To help distinguish between the two runs, this model will be sold in a leather collector box.

Don't miss out on this highly collectable model; pre-order yours here today!

New 1/64 Scale Sets by Greenlight

Listen up, all you diehard 1/64 scale collectors! has received two brand new 1/64 scale sets this week from Greenlight.  Each set includes three individually packaged cars.  As a bonus, each car comes with its own collectible trading card and shop tool!  Each car is smooth, streamlined, and has excellent detail for a car of its size.
The first item, 13025-SET, includes 3 of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro in: Synergy Green (with a black stripe), Summit White (with a silver stripe), and Victory Red (with a black stripe.)  You could walk around with these cars in your pocket all day shouting, "Viva l'Italia!"  (No, these aren't Italian made - I'm just giving homage to green, white, and red.)  Better yet, you could put these little diecast cuties on a shelf in your office for display.  Scroll down for images and another product announcement.
13025-SET     -   Price $14.95

The second item, 13026-SET, includes 3 of the 2010 Chevy Corvette Z06 in: Supersonic Blue, Torch Red, and Black.  These cars don't come with the optional cashmere interior, nor will they go 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, but if you happen to automatically know all those little goodies about the real life 2010 Chevy Corvette Z06, then this sounds like the collector's item for you!  Or for your son, because I bet daddy isn't letting him borrow the car any time soon.

13026-SET   -   Price  $14.95
