  • Haha yes I remember Micro Machines, although I think that they are still producing products even today; aren't they?

    However, partially because of their small scale and their design style, the cars have overly caricatured/cartoony proportions, while I always liked more realistic models of things. In that low-price range, I'd say Matchbox is the best at realistic models --- whenever they get around to actually making new ones, which happens rarely xD --- although Hot Wheels sometimes makes good models too, like the James Bond Aston Martin, haha:

  • i remember those, but they lost sales due to matchbox taking over which where better toy cars anyways, for the higher detail in construction.
