Here is what the design crew picked as personal favorites.

Castro

There were so many good ones in 2012 so it was hard to choose. I had to pick a Muscle Machine, because for me that was a huge deal for us to acquire the Muscle Machines brand and bring it back from the ashes. I picked the 1:64 Muscle Machines 1955 Chevy Pickup, it was one that I held dear to my heart because my Grandfather had a 1957 Chevy Pickup, so it was my tribute to him and his old pickup.

Jose

Not really a Corvette fan but once i put some pretty cool racing deco's on the 1:24 Allstars 1970 Corvette, i was starting to like them a little more.

 

 

Brad

It was a pretty hard decision to pick my favorite item for this year. I think I am going to have to go with the Maisto Tech Rock Crawler with the Metallic Orange and Blue color scheme. These 2 colors look fantastic together on almost anything, especially on a Maisto Tech Rock Crawler! Plus I believe it embodies our 2012 season - “smashing the competition and always looking good doing it!”

Jody

ASM Vantasy - picked because not only is it cool looking but it was my first Esheet.

Kevin

Picked the 1:6 scale Ducati motorcycle. Yes it came out in 2011 but he's new to the team so we cut him some slack.

Jon

 

I picked the Muscle Machines 66/67 Chevy II - Nova as this a 1:24 version of my actual car. Mine has a much smaller supercharger but the other details are very close. It's a dream of mine to have a MM version of my car, especially since I started to collect them back in the early 2000s. So to fast forward 12 years later and have one is awesome.

 

A few of the team members are absent from the list. Rick is currently traveling the globe, and Charles is off the grid for a few days.

 

Here we come 2013!

Any chance of a 1:18 "yellow" C7 Corvette being produced. I have the real thing ordered and I already own lots of Maisto cars.It would be a great addition to my collection.

Quoting rod73x:
I love your range of motorcycles but have you considered a 1:12 version of the GSXR SRAD, which is the predecessor of the other GSXR models you cover? As the first track bike built for road-legal use, it holds a unique and important place in sportsbike history. It is still a popular model in the EU, even though they were last manufactured in 1999. Still, to-date no diecast model has ever been developed, which is sad really.


Thanks for suggesting the SRAD, we'll consider it.

Yes, we've been a little slow. We should have the entire 2013 catalog on line in a couple of weeks.
