Mattel knows a thing or two about manufacturing might; the toy giant has long been a model for concept-to-consumer planning in the hobby and games segment, with licensing, delivery, and market awareness playing into its every move.

ABC 1:43 “Hayworth” Cadillac: The Royal Treatment

Aug 27, 2011 No Comments

Hollywood royalty just ain’t what it used to be, especially when it comes to cars. Off-the-shelf blinged Escalades, store bought Ferraris, Bentleys, and Lambos (or their “green” nemeses – eco-friendly, celebrity-driven Priuses and Volts), simply lack star-level visual impact when heaving up to the curb. Back in the good old days, things were different – and [...]

Sunstar 1:24 AEC Regent Bus: Double Decker Fun

Aug 21, 2011 No Comments

Bus models are a big part of the Sunstar lineup, and we’d seen some of these 1:24 double deckers before – but this 1946 AEC Regent really grabbed us, with its tall, skinny architecture, petite stairways and railings, and the artful little details that abound everywhere.
