|Retro Entertainment Batch J is at Wheel Collectors|
Not all Retro Entertainment Model strike my fancy. But I have said that many times before. If it is a replica of a real car, no matter what movie or tv show it comes from, I am interested.
But even then, some models just don't peak my interest. Maybe they are from an era that doesn't interest me, or I just don't like the casting.
That is what I figured would be the case with Retro Batch J. First off, it has a Batmobile, and I have no interest in Batmobiles. (I know many of you do, so of course I included pics.) Second, there is a motorcycle, and I have never collected motorcycles. Third, no other models really stood out.
Except they do! Now that I have them in hand, the '56 Chevy and Checker Cab are fantastic models. I have no idea if they are new castings or not, but I am happy to have both models. Same with the Corvette. It is a dated casting, and a little sloppy, but it has never looked better, especially with the clever way the mooneyes disk wheels were tampo printed to show the 80's Corvette wheels. Very nice touch.
Nonetheless, this is a worthy set. Yeah, the '56 Chevy is a Brady Bunch car, but it is the star of the set. I see many uses for that model in the future.
Enjoy the pics.
