Maisto to Offer Muscle Machines!

We like to keep you in the know as to what's going on with your toys. 

So, seeing as we heard some fun news from Maisto this last week, here we are to pass it along to you.

"The May Cheong Group (MCG), manufacturers of Maisto and Bburago, have announced the acquisition of tooling and intellectual property of the Muscle Machines brand from Bodylines/Bruce Schultz, the famed 3D artist who worked on the original models. 

"The Muscle Machines brand, which features American muscle car replicas with exposed chrome-plated engines, beefy rear wheels, and on the larger scales, steel braided hoses, took vehicle aisles by storm in early 2000. 

"Australian artist Rohan Day created the original trading card artwork which accompanied the 1/64 models and much of the packaging. Day will be staying with the line to create new artwork. 

"MCG is excited for this brand to be added to the Maisto line, and they have plans to keep new and interesting releases coming out for years. Their plans are to release Muscle Machines at the Nuremberg and New York Toy Fairs next month and to ship this summer. 

"More information will soon be available at and"
