Four Brands Release Replicas Today

Today we received new replicas from Mattel, Minichamps, Sun Star and Quartzo.

We’ll start with Minichamps. They sent us the 1:8 Valentino Rossi ‘WTF’ 2011 Misano helmet (PO110876B), along with two more 1:18 ABS Ford Fiesta RS WRCs: Ott Tanak’s car from the 2012 Rally of France (PG120805), and the Fiesta that Mads Ostberg drove in the 2013 Monte Carlo Rally (PG130804).

Mattel released the 1:18 2013 Ferrari 458 Speciale in red (HWBLY31), the 1:18 1970 Dodge Charger from the Fast and Furious (HWBLY21), and the 1:43 Fernando Alonso 2014 Ferrari F14 T (DC214414).

Sun Star delivered a relatively small consignment of replicas, with the 1:18 Henri Toivonen Opel Ascona 400 from the 1982 RAC Rally (SS5367), and the Subaru Impreza 555 that Krzysztof Holowczyc drove in the 1997 RAC Rally (SS5507), being our favourites.

Last, but certainly not least, two of Quartzo’s excellent value 1:43 classic F1 cars arrived today in the form of Jo Siffert’s 1968 British Grand Prix winning Lotus 49 (Q27803), and Graham Hill’s 1969 Monaco Grand Prix winning Lotus 49B (Q27804).
