We received some images from our factory the other day regarding our 2011 1:64 Elite Transports. That’s right, twenty-eleven Elite Transports. So, until we get the official word from the licensees that they are approved and good to go – here are some sneak peeks. We’ll post full images soon.
Well thanks for looking and check back soon for the full image update.

The 2011 release are already being produced so stay tuned for that, of course we’ll be posting those pics when those arrive!
New GT1 Vette came in to CAPD today, had to roll outside to capped some pics. Here is some background to these commemorative edition cars.
Chevrolet used the 12 Hours of Sebring race to show off the new Corvette GT1Championship Edition. This makes sense considering this limited edition is commemorating the Corvette C6.R’s victories in the GT1 class of Le Mans series racing.
The point of the GT1 package is to make the street Vetts look like the race-only cars. Some details of the package include C6.R-inspired graphics featuring Corvette Racing “Jake” mascot and driver flags, ZR1-style body,full width spoiler, chrome wheels, and special engine cover with carbon pattern and yellow Corvette lettering. The colors available are yellow with black trim or black with yellow trim.
So sometimes it happens, we get busy, workin the day away, and then BOOM, it hits us….we haven’t posted yet today! What do we post? We have so much new product coming out, but can’t show it all just yet! We are kickin butt here, preparing for Fall Toy Preview in Dallas right now, so things are kind of crazy. We’re working on our catalog and banging out the rest of 2010/2011 product. So when we’re crunched for time, we rely on our good ol’ standby, “Freeway Fotos”.
But wait, what about all this new product? Like I said, there is stuff going on, that I just can’t talk about yet…so here’s a tease. I know… brutal.
I was searching last night, you know, googlin and what not. Low and behold I find images of our long lost Stunt Runtz. These things were pretty bad ass for their time. Sure they could have used a little “cool” kick, but they were pretty dope as is. They were characterized stunt riders, busting some wild tricks on their crotch rockets. For the time, I’d say they were pretty amazing.
When I came to Maisto a few years ago and saw all the cool stuff they had under their belt, I knew this was the place for me. Myself being the figure/character aficionado that I am, saw these and loved them. The names on these however, well, that’s another story. I’m just glad I’m here now, so names like that never, EVER, get used again. EVER!
