I love dogs. My earliest childhood memories involved dogs, mostly mixed breed large dogs. So I'm hoping that eventually, now that I have my own place, I can finally get a dog, because life is tough enough. I greatly prefer large breeds, but with one glaring exception - a west highland terrier in snow white. Those… » 10/27/14 10:01pm Monday 10:01pm

Interesting, I had no idea these were in demand, because I went to a Walmart yesterday, and there were 3 of these on the pegs, along with the R2D2 car, Luke's car, Chewy's and Yoda's. » 10/25/14 9:30pm Saturday 9:30pm

Hmm this reminds me, I need to get a haircut. It's getting unmanageable (by this, I mean I have to spend more than 5 minutes in front of the mirror fixing my hair), and it's taking too much effort now to deal with it. » 10/25/14 6:21pm Saturday 6:21pm

Congrats on the STH! I also have some luck in finding TH in my local Walgreens, although I have to admit, I don't really look hard into those stores. Maybe I should start, I might get lucky also - I've yet to see a STH in the wild. » 10/22/14 10:11pm 10/22/14 10:11pm

The 1963 Aston Martin DB5 in racing green will always have a special place in my heart, because that was the very first diecast I bought, and the one that convinced me to pursue this hobby. » 10/18/14 5:24pm 10/18/14 5:24pm

Hmm, I don't really have anything that I need encouragement for. I finished reading Murakami's latest novel a few nights ago, after halting my reading for a few weeks for some reason or another I can't remember. Then a few nights ago, I happened to look at it, and I thought that I should just get back and finish it,… » 10/15/14 9:44pm 10/15/14 9:44pm

Believe it or not, I actually understand what you went through. Sometimes, I find myself just going to a store and buying a diecast vehicle just make my day better, even for a bit. Especially during those days when things seem to be off, whether at home or at work. This explains why I have to buy another Cool Classics… » 10/11/14 1:27am 10/11/14 1:27am

I bought this, a 1951 Studebaker 2R truck from M2 Machines. Why? Because it has a snow plow on it. Also, I wanted to buy an M2 Machine diecast just to check out it's quality, and whether the price is justified (it does actually, these look pretty well-built, with fine details, and they come with an acrylic display… » 10/08/14 6:48pm 10/08/14 6:48pm

Hey Frosted, have you heard of M2 Machines diecast cars? They make trucks called Auto-Haulers. I took a close look at one in a Walmart, they actually looked pretty good. A bit on the pricey side, but you do get 2 die cast vehicles in one purchase (the truck, plus the car that they're hauling), and it comes with a… » 10/07/14 11:09pm 10/07/14 11:09pm
