Some of The Best Models of 2015

The time has arrived; it's time to put up that new calendar, write out your goals and resolutions, and reflect on the last year that has flown by. For me, a good deal of that reflection is over the amazing models we've seen this year. Will you come with me on this journey? 

#33524 - 1/64 Scale
J & R Distributing - Peterbilt 389 Tri-Axle with 63" Flattop Sleeper and
Walinga Tri-Axle Bulk Feed Trailer - Level 2 Detail 
DCP has an unrelenting drive for excellence in minutiae. This Peterbilt 389 bares that out well.

#64-312-GR - 1/64 Scale
Cattle Guard crossing with two panels - ABS plastic
Our friends at 3D To Scale made quite a splash with this cattle guard in 2015. Plus, they manufacture in the good ol' USA!

#DJJ39 - 1/18 Scale
Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile with Batman and Robin Figures 
The Hot Wheels Elite team at Mattel decided to show off with this brilliant tribute to Adam West's Batman in 1/18 Scale. The Batmobile never looked so good.

#25101 - 1/50 Scale
Bobcat - Peterbilt 379 with Sleeper and Flatbed Trailer Hauling a Bobcat Load  
It would be dereliction of duty to forget the homage Norscot paid to Bobcat with this Peterbilt 379.

#51013 - 1/64 Scale
Sgt. Rock - 1941 Military 1/2 Ton 4X4 Truck - Stacey David's Gearz (TV Show) 
GreenLight has been on point with licensing this year. From Breaking Bad, Fast and Furious, and Gone in 60 Seconds to what they have just announced - Once Upon A Time, Lost, and the Walking Dead - GreenLight never fails to impress. This 1941 4X4 truck is no exception to that rule.

#13856 - 1/64 Scale
New Holland T9.700 Quadtrac Tractor
There's nothing like watching a quadtrac tractor glide across a field. Thanks to ERTL, you can glide your own quadtrac across your carpet.

All these great models are in stock now. Pick one up at and consider it a souvenir of 2015. Happy New Year!

Christmas is Upon Us!!!

The weather outside isn't frightful yet (it's 60 degrees and sunny in Southwest Missouri), but it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas nonetheless: there are toys in every store. Hopefully you're wrapping up your Christmas shopping, 'cause Santa Claus is coming to town. However, if you still have some shopping to do, and you're not looking for turtle doves and golden rings, we can help! After all, who would rather have a sugar plum than a CAT D11 Bulldozer? For that matter, who even knows what a sugar plum is? 
#SRS306 - 1/64 Scale
Knight Rider - K.I.T.T. VS. K.A.R.R. Slot Car Race Set
#02439 - 1/16 Scale
Caterpillar Excavator
#14524 - 1/16 Scale
Farmall Model M Tractor
#55212 - 1/50 Scale
Caterpillar D11T Track-Type Tractor with Metal Tracks

#33021 - 1/64 Scale
1986 Fleetwood Bounder RV - Breaking Bad  (TV Series)
#964 - 1/18 Scale
Dukes of Hazzard General Lee - 1969 Dodge Charger
#97671 - 4"

#33543 - 1/64 Scale
Detroit Radiator "Dr Cool" Show Truck - Kenworth W900
with 72" Aerocab Sleeper and Kentucky Moving Trailer
It may be too late for Christmas delivery unless you want to upgrade to Overnight Air, but a late CAT D11 is better than on-time sugar plums in my book. And you don't need reindeer, just go to to place your order. Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

'Twas the Week Before Christmas: Star Wars Edition

 ‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all across the world
Throngs of people were excited, their Star Wars fandom unfurled.
Families lined up and waited in the cold
To see if the new movie was as good as the old.

The children were nestled into their seats with care
with popcorn and soda and theater fare.
The lights went down, the movie got started.
All cell phones, texting and chatter departed.

When out in space there rose such a clatter,
Yoda sent Jedi to see what was the matter.
And Darth Vader in his Tie Fighter and Boba in Slave 1
Showed that the Empire would not run.

And what to their wondering eyes did show up?
But Leia, Han, and starships that blow up!
With Kylo Ren in his ship and Poe in His X-Wing,
the Star Wars excitement was in full swing.

With a new director, so lively and smart,
I knew in an instance, it was a good start.
All the characters gathered, none were ashamed,
JJ Abrams directed and called them by name:

Now Phasma, now Finn, now Chewie, and Luke
On Solo, on Rey, Kanata, and Snoke!
To the top of the record book by the first nightfall,
to the top of the box office, to the top of them all!

The family left the movie, their brains did not
“We must find Star Wars toys!” they thought.
“To we shall go, to find Mattel models aplenty!
When I finally find them, I must buy twenty!”

#CGW52P-CASE - 1/64 Scale
Hot Wheels® Star Wars Starship 12-Piece Assortment

The family received their models, the children all cheered.
There was no sadness or gloom, not a frown or sneer.
The prequels are forgotten, the dark side defeated by the light
May the force be with you all, there’s not a Jar Jar in sight.

The Walking Dead Lurches Onto Shelves

Within the last 5-10 years, American culture has become saturated with post-apocalyptic zombie movies and TV shows. Chief among these has been AMC's The Walking Dead. It tells the story of a group of survivors continuously on the run from hordes of ravenous, flesh-eating "walkers", more popularly known as zombies. This story connects with us because the scary things aren't the walkers, but how people change and what they do when in awful situations. In short, the walkers are not really evil. 

"I eat because I'm sad, and I'm sad because I eat."

I contend that zombies are simply bored and eat all the time because they are bored. Obviously, they need a hobby. Calligraphy requires too much hand-eye coordination, they would be unlikely to find a partner for ballroom dancing, and groaning goes over poorly in barbershop quartets. Collecting models would probably suit them well. Perhaps ones like these GreenLight models from The Walking Dead.

#33060-A - 1/64 Scale
Dale's 1973 Winnebago Chieftain RV

#12957 - 1/18 Scale
Rick and Shane's Patrol Car - 2001 Ford Crown Victoria Police

#12958 - 1/18 Scale
1967 Ford Mustang Coupe "Sophia Message Car"

While these are not scheduled to be released until Spring 2016, it is not too early to get excited about adding these to your collection. Go to and pre-order yours today. While you are there, be sure to check out other pop-culture replicas from Mattel, American Muscle, and Jada Toys. If we're lucky, these models will help prevent the zombie apocalypse.

Motormax Arrives!

One of the things that sets long-lasting hobbies apart from hobbies that pop up and then flame out is choice. In fact, you can often tell if a hobby has staying power based upon little more than the amount of options available. Collecting models has been a hobby for decades now, and the power of choice is one of the things that has kept it going up until now and that will keep it going into the future. 

Are you someone who wants construction models? You have options like Norscot, NZG, and WSI. Are you someone who is primarily interested in military models? There is Dragon, Corgi, and Forces of Valor. Are you interested in cars, both vintage and modern? You have a plethora of options to choose from—which brings me to today.

Here at, we are excited to announce that we are now carrying Motormax! Motormax was founded in 1997 and since then it has specialized in manufacturing highly-detailed, officially-licensed collectible die-cast models. We specifically carry items from two of their lines: American Classics and Die-cast Collection. Here is a small sampling of what to expect:


#73801AC - 1/43 Scale
1932 Ford Coupe

#73101BK - 1/18 Scale
Porsche 911 in Black

#73303AC-BL - 1/24 Scale
1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429 in Blue

As these above models show, Motormax is a great option for your collection, and we are proud to carry it. Give the rest of our Motormax items a look, as I am sure you will find something that you, or someone in your life, will cherish. If you want to stay up to date with our Motormax releases, or any of your other model needs, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
