New Releases From Minichamps and Mattel

We received new replicas from both Minichamps and Mattel today.

Of the five subjects we received from Minichamps, by far and away the most significant was the 1:8 Marco Simoncelli 2011 helmet (PO110858). It is a limited edition of 2,600 pieces worldwide, with each one being individually numbered on the sleeve.

Other replicas on the delivery included the 1:43 1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint in red (P120906), and the 1:18 #53 Porsche 911 GT3 R that Jurgen Haring, Dimitrios Konstantinou, Gilles Vannelet and Arnaud Peyroles drove in the 2010 Spa 24 Hours (PG108953).

Mattel unexpectedly released its 1:18 special edition replica of Fernando Alonso’s 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix winning Ferrari F2012 (DC21205M). It comes complete with a 1:18 figure of Fernando Alonso celebrating his victory, and is limited to 3,500 pieces worldwide.
