Auto World keeps the sneak peeks coming.

I have said a lot about the sneak peeks coming from Hot Wheels and Matchbox lately, but some of my other favorite brands have been at it too.

Tomica Limited Vintage usually sneaks new stuff about 3-4 months in advance, which keeps me in a constant state of anticipation, Majorette has their catalog and other platforms (our friends at @majoretteaustralia are particularly active), and Auto World has Sneaky Friday.

Every Friday Auto World will drop images of upcoming models on both their Facebook and Instagram pages, meaning both are totally worth following.  And this weeks sneak was particularly tasty:

The posted the Ultra Red Chase on Facebook:

Those are some gorgeous Mustangs, particularly that aqua blue.  The casting isn't new, but it hasn't looked better.  It is coming in May.

So is the Cadillac Eldorado that was sneaked the week before:

I love the big boats, so I am particularly happy about the return of this one.

One thing to keep in mind is that Auto World is a brand of Round 2, who also owns Racing Champions and Johnny Lightning.  Follow them as well, because the sneaks drop there as well.  The two police Broncos - one in all black and one in chase gold - are particularly nice.

Lots to look forward to!

    1. Thank you. That leaves more for me. But I will say these are not toy cars but small scale replicas. For me the AutoArt, Minichamps, Autoworld, Kyoshos, TLV and the like are great. I would rather have one really well done model than 10 cheap HW cars. I will still get the "toys" but I will gravitate to the higher detail models always. Been that way since I got my first Majorette Deluxe in the late 80s and even the MB World Class shortly there after.

    2. yeah, these aren't toys. They may be in the toy aisle, but I guarantee you there aren't any 6-year-old kids convincing mom or dad to buy them one, and they're not aimed at them either. And I agree, Jeff, that leaves more for me (and you)

  2. I love the Eldorados- awesome casting! Hope they release some with the vinyl top someday, as most of the real cars had them.

  3. Those Broncos look fantastic...I'm partial to the all-black one.
