New Blog Topic! Maisto “In The Wild!”

We love to see the final product of our hard work, blood (yes, sometimes blood), sweat, and tears (for the softer guys.) So when we go do a store check (See Rick’s post on last week’s fiasco), we like to see what other products are out there, get inspired, and yes, catch a glimpse of our product out “in the wild” as we like to call it. Here are some shots I took on my iPhone of some recent product that we’ve found.

Here are a couple more new Elite Transport’s to look out for, following last week’s post from SkidKid. You can add these to your list of “Gotta Have It’s”!
