Quoting Darrin Dudding:
Where is the 2011 Ram, Charger, Volt and Scion at Walgreens?


Sometimes it takes longer for new product to get to the retail stores than might be expected. While the new items are in production, they don't get to the stores if the retailer hasn't placed a recent order.

I love fresh metals! Actually, is one of my favorite lines of the whole diecast world.
Also, I must point out that last 5 years castings are much better than the older ones, even better than castings from more expensive brands.
I also like their axes, more solid ones in the market.
If I could ask a wish, I would like to see more classic cars...
Fresh metals for ever!

Hi,

You have the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor twice there, did you mean the Ford Super Duty Tonka Concept?

This is a very pleasing gesture from you to collectors, Maisto team. Something you don't often see from other diecast makers.


Thanks for catching the two listings for the Raptor. It was on there twice because we made a more highly detailed one as a Ford premium in addition to the regular Fresh Metal version. I've just taken one of them off of the blog post. The Ford Mighty F-350 Super Duty is already on the list -- it was formerly the Tonka concept truck.

Quoting Dmoore:
Thanks for the listing. I've been collecting Maisto's 3-inchers since 1995, and this list will help me in finding the ones I missed.

One question: I have a 1/43-scale Think City I purchased new in 2002. Did you ever make one in 3-inch?

Thanks again.


Thanks for the kind words. Sorry, but we didn't make the Think in 3".

I agree with Sjo, these are very cheap looking. I'd rather buy Hotwheels or Matchbox
