The "Chase" Routemaster Bus is sharp. It would have been nice to have seen some Real Riders on it, nonetheless, I will be looking for it.

If I find one, it is getting let out of its prison and being reunited with its British relatives. :D

SOMETHING!?!?!

That Buick is terrible the first release was awesome this one is not. Reasons? HMMMMMM lets see

1 BLUE WINDOWS way to be realistic for the adult collector
2 That lame tampo on the side belongs on the side of a 2000 expedition you would never see that in the 50's and 60's. A simple Star there would have done it but no.
3 Its 1/72 scale with 1/64 wheels.
4 Its white and chrome white makes the car look too monochromatic. why not blue or do a green forest service Tennesee Valley Authority type scheme maybe even a fire chief?
5 Its a four door Galaxy should have four port hole on the fender. that might seam to be splitting hairs but i like to collect these cars because they accurately show what a car looks like that i cant have in my garage i educate my son on vintage cars using these and mbx/lensey used to be all about that. this car is just silly and MBX is better than that.

I did buy the 2012 and will buy future castings but i cant stand silly tampos and this is one casting i cant see displaying ever so unless my kid grabs it i doubt highly that it will make it home.

I do like the crown vic but why go generic? why not make it a NYC Taxi that would've awesome is there licencing issues with that? I think i suggested a crown vic last year this time and here it is. I hope MBX does more Taxis maybe a Chicago green and white checker cab? IDK
