First thing you'll notice are the cars are slightly
smaller than your average Hot Wheels or Matchbox so I'm going to say
they're not actually true 1/64. They fit in the realm of about
1/70th or so scale. You'll notice at first when examining these cars
that the bottom says Playmind LTD on most of the vehicles. They also
have named most of them on the bottom except for one out of each pack. You'll find
metal and plastic construction here. They aren't as heavy as a 1/64
Hot Wheels or Matchbox but they still are fairly well detailed.
You'll find lights detailed from headlights to parking lights, logos
albeit not that intricate along with racing stripes and other tidbits here
and there. There is at least one car from each pack that is
cost-reduced and has that cheap feel to it. Overall they make for something different for collecting.
I wouldn't really trust them for kids to be rough racing them around but
they're still good to collect.

Thumbs up! If you're looking for something
different in the 1/64 diecast area but don't want to spend a lot of money,
take a chance at a set of these. You get some nicely done replicas
as long as you can put up with some quirkiness and the slightly smaller
Street Price: $5.00 Not For Ages Under
Each pack contains one cost-reduced car as
there are no tampos printed on them and the base is different compared to
the ones. The first one is the red convertible with a hardtop that
looks like a BMW Z8, the middle pack shown has a custom yellow Mazda RX-7
style tuner and the last one has a car similar to a Dodge Magnum wagon.
These all have different bases with indentations compared to the others
that have Playmind LTD and the car make / model on most of them such as
the Porsches, Fords, Shelby Cobra 427SC Roadster, Nissan 370Z, GT-R,
etc. The only one to disappoint is the 1965-ish Mustang Convertible
which falls short. There are some good diecast cars in this bunch
while a few of the others throw you off a bit. The price is about
the same as other diecast 5 packs but you get some nice unique
representations here. I've not sure if these are sold loosely or
separately outside of the US.
The Trio of Cheaper Cars - One from
Update: These are now called Licensed
Diecast featuring slightly different paint schemes on some models
but are basically the same vehicles as reviewed here. Some of the
color and paint schemes have changed and now the packaging identifies
specific cars unless it is a generic model.
I hope you enjoyed my review and look forward to cover more in the future. You can
me your comments on this review.
Each 5 pack is No. 15111 on the front
but found these three different assortments by them.
