Remember back when I said that I only collected 1/43 scale things, plus the odd foray into 1/64s?
Well, apparently that did used to be a thing but seemingly not any more, as I descend more into old toy hoarder man, rather than 1/43 connoisseur*.
Trawling Trademe one evening, this popped up:
It's a Greenlight 1:18 scale rendition of an Impala that features in a hitherto unbeknown (to me) hit TV show, called Supernatural. I thought the dark moody shot suited the subject quite well, due to the, erm, supernatural element of the series. Plus it also helped reduce a load of reflection from living room furniture, which was pinging off that shiny black paint job. You don't seem to get such issues with smaller stuff!
I must admit, I was rather looking forward to picking this up and marvelling at the sheer weight and scale of it, as I haven't bought a 1:18 since I owned a few Maisto models bought from Tesco back in the mid-90's. Sadly, this one has no opening features at all! So really, it's more of a highly detailed Tonka than the stuff I was buying for £12.99 or thereabouts 25 years back.
That said, this one came in a faded and slightly careworn box and has an A pillar search light that needs gluing back on but I think it's OK value for the £10 I paid. I'll no doubt try and hawk it off to my favourite toy shop for store credit, if they're at all interested.
