I just came back from my first trip to a Target store, and scored something I hadn't seen before. Muscle Machines toy company and Petersen's 4WHEEL&OFF-ROAD magazine apparantly have teamed up and brought out a manufacturer's series of trucks. I found 2 sets: one in 1:64 scale which are similar to the Matchbox and Tonka models, and one in 1:43 scale, which are close to Lionel Trains size. The 1:43 set includes an extended cab Silverado ( 2002 - no Av copy nose), a Chevy SSR, and a metallic Green Av with nice details including a pair of roof mounted driving lights. The set was $9.99 in Target. See the attachment ?for a pic, and I'll start anothe reply with the other set.

The 1:64 scale set swaps out the SSR for an orange Suburban, but the Av is tucked into the right side of the package. Sort of resembles Arrival Blue!
See the Pic.

This I stumbled on while I was looking at the Muscle Machines. Tonka redid their Av in a green and cream style with "Fran's Outdoor Adventures" plastered on the side. It still has the Maisto stamp on the bottom and comes with dual exhausts.
Another Pic.

One more pic of the 1:43 Av. Besides being lifted up to nosebleed height, it appears to have a billet gas door, Stripeman tailgate applique, and Escallade door handles.
I like this truck (see pic)

More toys to buy!!
Thanks, I'm gonna go check out target later today. My model collection is getting pretty big. So far I've got the 1/18 Welly
The DUBS model
The little green matchbox one
The motorized Bully 4X4
I was thinking about getting the huge RC one for $130 from Toy R US. That's just a lot of $ that could go toward real v mods... :cautious:
Well, we just got back from Big Lots, found a single pack Muscle Machines Av in Dark Green. I bought 2 of them, one for me and one for the kid ;D

Looks like I might be on my way to Target next >:D
Zimms, do you have a BJ's wholesale club in the area? They have the 1/6 scale New Bright one for $98.99 :D

You should check them out if you are looking for a big one.

I think endeavorc is trying to show you this model, also made by New Bright, the same company that put out "The Bully"
KB toys

I agree! Why get a toy when you can MOD your real, gigantic toy. >:D
BJ's is like a Sam's club.

The 1:6 scale New Bright Av is an R/C. I have seen them at Walmart for the same price also ;D

Look for the thread on R/C Avalanches you will find some pics there.

>:DI think the makers of these toys have been hanging around our site. The green AV toy has the billet fuel door and stripeman letters from what i could tell by looking at the pictures,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
zeeya >:D
