Now for the current recent grabs of the Hot Wheel offerings in my area.
I had a great time attending the Diecastspace.com Las Vegas Super Convention. With all due respect to Carsthetoys.com and AL-V Custudio’s invite to be a part of the Disney Pixar CARS display team. I was able to bring out my personal Japanese Tomica Disney CARS collection for display.
All the Carsthetoys.com members that were part of the display team brought GREAT pieces from their personal collection as well ass KICK ASS customs displays and CARS. It was an event not to be forgotten!
There were plenty of prototypes sitting around!
Allen Gladfelter from BOOM COMICS even showed up and knocked out a bunch of customs print requests for CARS fans!
There were several other Diecast Companies in attendance. M2 Machines by Castline being one of them. They had some cool pieces out on display:
MuscleMachines seem to maybe making a comeback. This willys was all that was there…..
A good Friend Luis “Big Lou” Tanahara was there showing off his kickass Sledster creation. Dope artwork and also a little info that something new is in the works! Can’t Wait to see!
there were also a few custom cars and creations in attendance.
Alrighty ladies and gents, my blog posting will halt from today until next week. I am flying out to Las Vegas, NEVADA to be a part of the Disney CARS exhibit with the Japanese Domestic market Tomica,Ebrro, and Choro Q’s . I will be back in full force with pictures and feedback from the show. Thanks to diecastspace.com, carsthetoys.com, and AL-V for making this trip possible!

I had another video game geek moment and picked up the LONG AWAITING GRAN TURISMO 5 Collectors edition. This game has been LONG ANTICIPATION by not only myself but millions of other racing fans. This collectors edition contained a game guide, keychain, 1:43 Kyosho Diecast model with Playstation and polyphoinic logo’s along with GT5 logos.
While I was in Nebraska assisting my mom with her move and renovation of her new house. We hit a home improvement store that had a toy section for the holidays. And of course I had to hit it and check out the offerings. Well needless to say I came away with some goodies!

Thanks to my Buddie JAY I also came home with some kick ass Muscle Machines stuff he designed/worked on while playing with the toy game. I also was able to score some VERY HARD to come by HotWorks D1 stuff as well as a cool freebie AE86 Initial D ride. Thanks a BUNCH Mr. Jay. These items will be in VERY good company with their other long lost JDM friends as well as displayed proudly!
And the HARD TO COME BY STUFF…. Mr. Jay put alot of hard work, blood,sweat and years into these lines. And I would have to say his hard work was definitely my PEAK in collectiing diecast. ***AND I BLAME YOU FOR EVERYTHING MR JAY!!!*** heh Thousands of dollars hanging out in cases, boxes and shelves. I can add these 2 FINE pieces to the collection!

Thanks again Mr. JaY! Who needs SDCC when cool ass guys like you hook a unfortunate idiot like me up! SPEECHLESS STILL!
For the last 4 years I have had my eyes on this certain car which has been hanging out in a friends office. Every time I came in contact with the car I tried my best to unhook this car from my friends office shelf and no go. Well, recently I traveled to his house while I was in California and FINALLY I was able to miraculously PRY this off his shelf. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mr. Jay aka JDMEGO for being super kind in letting me get a hold of this car! What a guy!
