Mattel/Ferrari deal to end this year.......

After much speculation and rumors, we have confirmed that
Mattel will not renew it's license with Ferrari when the current
deal expires on December 31, 2014. Mattel has had a stranglehold
on the Ferrari model market since 1999 when they inked a multi-
million dollar deal. Although many thought this agreement would be
short lived, here we are 15 years later. What does this mean for
pending models that have been announced? Any 2014 releases will
be produced and released within the next six months. This includes
the 1:18 LaFerrari and the 312 T2 Nicki Lauda. But any models that
had already been designated as 2015 releases have all been cancelled.
This includes:
BLY36 Elite 1:18 Ferrari California T – Red
BLY37 Elite 1:18 Ferrari California T – Colour #2
BLY38 Elite 1:18 Ferrari California T – Colour #3
BLY41 Elite 1:18 Ferrari F1 2014 as Driven by F. Alonso
BLY48 Elite 1:43 Ferrari California T – Red
BLY49 Elite 1:43 Ferrari California T – Colour #2
BLY50 Elite 1:43 Ferrari California T – Colour #3
BLY55 Heritage 1:18 Ferrari 458 Speciale – Red
BLY56 Heritage 1:18 Ferrari 458 Speciale - White

Going forward what does this mean? Well, at this time none of us
really know? Will Minichamps or Spark step up and pay the hefty
price to produce Ferrari models? Only time will tell. Stay tuned, as
we get more info we will definitely be passing it on.

Over 50 new arrivals this week

First things first, big thank you to all that placed orders
during our July 4th sale weekend. We appreciate your
continued patronage! All sale orders are shipped and on
the way to you. Now onto the good stuff.
All New 1:18 Arrivals here.
All New 1:43 Arrivals here.
All New MISC. here.
So many great new arrivals this week including two new
versions of the Bugatti 57SC Corsica by CMC. The
hill climb race version above and the "unpainted" version
as well.

Our big TSM/Spark shipment landed and included are
some great new releases that we have been patiently
waiting for. Above is the 1978 Lotus 78 as driven to
his final F1 victory at S. Africa. Features three removable
pieces to show the well detailed engine and suspension.

Another 1:18 from TSM, the 1980 Interscope Racing
Porsche 935 K4 as driven by Danny Ongias and Ted Field.
This is one sweet Porsche.

The Spirit of LeMans Corvette, finally in 1:18 scale.
I had the chance to look at one this morning and TSM
nailed it. Beautiful graphics and superb detail. Hats off to
Glen and his crew!

Are you one of those 1:43 collectors that have been
hunting down an '89 Alain Prost World Champion car?
Look no further, TSM has you covered. This is the
French GP winner. Also received the Senna Monaco 
winner. Yes both include the "M" decals to convert to
full race livery.

Sports cars more your theme? Then make sure you check
out the three versions of the Alfa Typo 33/3. These are
impressive to say the least and I love the base/packaging.
Click here to see all the new 1:43. 

Last but not least, we received quite a few accessories
and misc. items including the Nicki Lauda 1:8 scale
replica helmet. About the size of a golf ball, these look
great displayed alone or with your favorite model. We
also received 1978 Ronnie Peterson helmet.

Every 1:18 sports car collector
needs one of these. It's an exact
replica of the 24 Hours of LeMans 
trophy. How cool is that?

OK I'm out! TGIF.
I hope everyone has a good weekend.
Till next week,
