Tonka Truck Art Photo

I've posted a lot of toy cars here but this photo is an artistic rendering.  This is the first one in a series of toy photos. I saw this Tonka in a yard being used as a landscaping feature and I had to shoot it.  It's still being useful even if children aren't playing with it any more.

I've decided to sell this image in my Etsy store click here for details if your interested in owning one for yourself. Enjoy!

New Additions: Toys R Us Fast Lane Cars

This weekend I visited a Toys R Us in the nearby city and noticed that they were selling all new castings in their Fast Lane line of diecast cars.  Usually these are Motormax or Realtoy castings that are sold under this in house label but these seem to be new with no other manufacturer markings.  I found 2 10 packs with no repeats in models.  1 is pictured here.

For generics they are nicely done. They have interiors, decent paint schemes and good realistic details cast into the models like steering wheels, gas caps, windshield wipers and like. So next time you find yourself at a Toys R Us, check them out if you are into make believe models.  You might be pleasantly surprised.

Unless someone can tell me what manufacturer these are from I will feature them in a Fast Lane section in the museum when I start taking the single shots.  Seeya there!
