I keep finding treasures as I go through my office closet. First I came across the red Kyosho Ferraris that I featured earlier today, and a little later I dug out two Majorette sets that I had featured on the Youtube Channel late last year.
My work with those wasn't done. I have wanted to photograph the stunning Limited Edition models, in their "don't-call-them-spectraflame" - like colors. The mirror finish on the paint is exceptional, and the models, at least for me, are well worth having.
Don't call these chase models. They are limited, but not chase. Chase models are randomly inserted in assortments, the Majorette Limited Edition models are included in specific multipacks and other sets. Of course one of the Limited Edition Jags I have came in a blister pack, so maybe that is more chase. Still trying to figure all that out.
As I was going through those models, a funny thing happened. My doorbell rang and DHL delivered a package full of....Majorettes. Inside were new 2017 products, including the much-anticipated Gran Turismo Vision Concept Cars. The unboxing video is below:
From what I pulled from the box, and from what Majorette has previewed in its Catalogue and elsewhere, it looks like 2017 will be focused and very fun for collectors. US collectors still need friends overseas to get these, but based on what Majorette has been saying, that will hopefully change.
So, enjoy the video, and here are the most excellent Limited Editions from 2016. Video and photo showcases of Gran Turismo, Dubai Police, and Mercedes AMG GT are coming soon...
