Chasing Down the Bad Guys with Auto World!

Auto World is giving us a throwback from the classic TV show CHIPs with this wonderfully detailed 1975 Dodge Monaco Police Car. The show followed two California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers, and it was known for its mix of humor and action. In fact, during the show's run (1977 to July of 1983) nearly every episode featured massive, caricatured pile-ups as a signature gag 

Now, let's check out this awesome Monaco!

This fierce machine is replicated with diecast metal in 1/18 scale, which allows for some incredible detail. As you can see, the hood, doors, and trunk all open to reveal the internal details of the model, and also allow for unique display options.

Under the hood, you can check out the incredibly detailed Dodge Magnum engine with realistically replicated wires and hydraulics. This engine adds a level of reality to this model that almost makes it look like this car could peel out onto the road right now!

You can see the textured floor panels, replicated controls, and even a shotgun by just opening up one of the doors. The mirrors and air vents have also been replicated to make this model feel as real as possible. 

We are very excited for this model to arrive this fall in September / October. To pre-order yours visit us at 3000toys.com today!

Mattel Meets Marvel

#CFP58 - 1/64 Scale
Groot - Surfin' School Bus - Hot Wheels® Pop Culture  

Everyone loves a superhero. I think the reason for this is that, while their stories are far-fetched, they are also relatable. Take for example the nerdy kid who got bitten by a spider and developed the ability to shoot webs from his wrists. He was a normal kid; now he’s Spider-Man. There’s an element of “what if it happened to me?” in stories like these, and they challenge us to act justly in our everyday lives. Marvel has been bringing us these fantastic stories since 1939, and Mattel has been working hard to bring us Marvel-inspired models. Take a look at a few of our favorites.
#CFP60 - 1/64 Scale
Spider-Man - '64 Chevy Nova Delivery - Hot Wheels® Pop Culture        
#CFP59 - 1/64 Scale
Captain America - '38 Dodge Airflow - Hot Wheels® Pop Culture

#CFP63 - 1/64 Scale                                      #CFP62 - 1/64 Scale
Wolverine - Double Demon Delivery              Ant-Man - Bread Box  - Hot Wheels®
 - Hot Wheels® Pop Culture                                     Pop Culture Series
