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.

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.

Do you guys get the special releases like the Nightmare before Christmas, DC comics, Disney, etc. in SA? Or is it just the regular series of Hot Wheels?

Found these tonight, very pricey thou.

We get some of the special releases, but few . There is an anniversary series at the moment (black and white packaging) and a cartoon series, else just the normal stuff. Never seen a T hunt package here

T hunts are a joke, I saw two grown men fist fight inside Walmart over a T hunt car. I have found T hunts on the pegs and gave it away. Matchbox is now doing the Sapphire range, their version of the T hunts. Not seen them yet. Not much in the VW collectables this week on the pegs.
