VW toys.

Post by Obelix » Sun Aug 05, 2018 4:42 am

Ok it seems like this posting is dead!! Lets liven it up a bit.
New releases of air and water VW's from Hot Wheels and Matchbox.
I have found some but not all, time is very limited for hunting, but I still does not pass the toy aria without looking if I am in a shop. And one of the big toy stores closed, Toy's R Us. And nobody stepped up. Also the Hot Wheel days that we had at a local store is done as that chain closed up too. Makes hunting difficult, got to deal with f*#king Wal*mart now. But I still hunt.

The holly grail at the moment here, seen them sell for BIG money.

Found a few of these.

Hi Henry, nice to see you back here :hangloose:

The water cooled Matchbox double cab pickups and the air cooled grey Matchbox camper - what scale are they ?

Cheers

Sambas in South Africa are good for only 2 things: showing off and sunburn.

Jolas, those are all standard Matchbox size of 1: 64/66 scale. The color changer D/cab s freely available, but the regular ones are tough to find.
