Convention Calendar

Nuremberg, Ja!

On January 31st, the world-famous Spielwarenmesse Toy Fair, held in Nuremberg, Germany, opens to the trade and public, which is typically a harbinger of things to come for the balance of the year. Several modelmakers will be in attendance (although we won’t), eager to share their diecast delights with their adoring fans. Thanks to the beauty of the Internet, email, and periodic show highlights, we will post all of the new information as soon as we get it, as well as update some of the listings we had been expecting but were unfortunately delayed.

Convention Calendar: Star Wars Celebration 2017

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017

Some see it as a tourist mecca, others as a viable retirement option. I like to consider Orlando as the perfect place to host Star Wars Celebration 2017, a one-stop destination for all things Star Wars. Later this morning, Star Wars geeks get a first-hand look at the multi-day venue and perhaps, just perhaps, get a glimpse at some of the new films scheduled to open within the forseeable future. May the force be with you.

Convention Calendar: Its Show Time


We are just a scant day away from the opening of the Nuremberg Toy Fair, typically the venue most diecast makers use to unveil the bulk of their wares for the coming year. Of course, some smaller companies don’t have the resources to attend the Show, and oftentimes announce new offerings on their web site, social media or in email newsletter blasts to their dealers and audience. In any event, we will start listing the new product we learn about as soon as information comes in, which can some times take several days to accomplish. Items of particular note we will list first and begin accepting pre-orders as soon as we know their landed costs. Obviously, we ask for your patience during this process and refrain from asking us product-related questions until everything has been posted to our site. Thank you and enjoy some of the latest and greatest items coming to market.
