Well we are back with more bagger wave, whether it be Tesco, Giant, Toy R Us, Parkson, Metro Jaya, Carrfour, all have reported having the bagger wave at this time. Why? bad distribution, unpopular models being sifted for the Malaysia market or just simply beyond anyones' control. This wave fluctuation is getting some collectors frustrated and to a certain degree I am too, I mean who isn't especially collectors. But we can only hope that new wave will pop out soon and 7-11 will have another promo but please no more bagger for the next promo. But is it beyond anyones' control? Well September is coming and we have seen only 5 wave so far. Are we gonna be collecting 2009 cars right up into 2010 and 2010 cars won't be availbale until next March or April. So collecting in Malaysia is not meant to be a completed affair. I believe we must change our mindset.
Collecting in Malaysia must be to collect cars you like and don't try to complete any set such as all 12 thunts or super thunts but just get as many rubbers as you can, or just get the cars that you like cause until the situation takes a turn towards the collectors favor, we just have to find a way to collecting in a certain way that will avoid dissapointment due to just wishing and hoping the wave will arrive. At this point, I turn to the amount of rubber I have...hehehe.
The more ruber I collect the happier I am. There this is my focus so this I dare say is what I will find. Maybe as you wish for something you may be lucky enough to get it. Don't ask me how, I think its just the power of believe and focus on the possibilities instead of the impossibilities. And if one day I don't get any rubbers anymore, then I will just shift my focus somewhere else.

It may not weigh much because of the plastic base, but once you open it, you will pleasantly find out that it looks better than when it was still trapped in the blister. On top of that, the casting is detailed and superb, plus it has a back panel that lifts up revealing the engine. Great looking car and I love it. Let the pictures do the talking.

Possibly the most retro of the 09 thunt lineup is this car the 49 Merc Coupe. Its a nice striking metallic brown color with gold and silver tampos. The seats have brown stripes which is rare since not many coupe seats have stripes......Great car.... Let the pictures do the talking.

The nissan GTR, the king of Japanese super cars. Hotwheels made its premiere edition this year 09 for the nissan gtr. The verdict, Its a nice casting, light weight and nice finishing, not perfect but nice. Put side by side with the Tomica's nissan gtr Limited Edition, well of course its not a fair fight but it did not lose by a whole lot. A must get for any Jap car lover. Now I am just waiting for the red one to come on our shores....

The armored truck 2009, HW City Works series, comes this year in Gold Chrome with great looking tampos. However the truck itself is metal only at the base and the rest is plastic. Can this be considered as a diecast car? Well one thing nice about it is that its back door actually opens. That redeems its plasticky body somewhat. Let the pictures do the talking.

Managed to find a regular neet streeter this time on my hunts. This was found while I was going somewhere to conduct a seminar, on the way saw a 7-11, cannot even remember the name of the town which was very close to tampin. Anyway I have completed the super/regular neet streeter....On another note managed to find a kharman ghia convertible. Never seeen one before since the beginning of the 7-11 promo. Well let the pictures do the talking
