As usual, Bub had lots of wonderful models on show on their stand, but the night before the Toy Fair, we were very privileged to be invited to the Bub party at their HQ where they showed us over the display cabinets filled with the company's recent products AND some delightful models from the original Bub company. Unfortunately, I'd packed my camera with a dead battery as I hadn't expected to need it til the following day, but I took these shots on my phone's camera and they came out pretty nicely!





I have more to show from La Mini Miniera, but I thought this deserved it's own posting. The company has a dizzying array of variations on the Fiat 600 Multipla theme (kudos to them for getting so much mileage out of the model! I had no idea there WERE so many!) but this one tops the rest hands down.

Apparently, it's a model of a real-life promotional vehicle built  on a Multipla chassis...



Majorette wanted to announce they were back in a big way...



Under Maisto's parentage, Bburago continues to come out with all sorts of new stuff. And some old stuff. As you'll see...


They're making sure they get the most out of the Lamborghini licensing deal, that's for sure. Take a look at these:

Last post for today - Motorama! Some great models of Fiats, Lancias and more!

 

Revell's 1/18 Diecast range is as great as the rest of the company's lines. Last year, they added a stunning Opel Commodore Coupe model which is actually made of composite, but looks no different from the metal models in the range.  The Commodore won the German Auto-Modell Report's Model of the Year Award for 2009. This year, it's joined in the range by a Kadett.
