Official - Tomica will hit stores in August!

Official - Tomica will hit stores in August!

A while ago, I posted some information from Reddit on Tomica cars returning to the US this year. Now, we have (semi) official conformation on when and where.

These models (along with others) will be sold exclusively at Walmart stores in the US and Canada in August. That’s right, we’re around a month away from Tomica’s official return to the North American market (US and Canada, at least).

There is SO much more on the horizon. FK8 Type-R, NA Miata, Z32 300ZX, Gulf Laurel, R30 Super Silhouette, S14 240SX, and some more scrumptious City Turbo II.

Goo-Net Showdown: Speedy Kei Cars Edition

Goo-Net Showdown: Speedy Kei Cars Edition

Time for another debate on three cars found on Goo-Net Exchange, which I will now be calling the Goo-Net Showdown (No, it’s not trademarked).

The focus on this edition will be some speedy kei cars. No, there’s no Beats, AZ-1s, or Cappuccinos here, bu a trio of speedy hatches.

First up is one of the most well known performance-oriented kei cars: the Suzuki Alto Works RS, this one in RS/R...

If you guys like home grown, mod friendly and community driven racing games...

...then boy, do I have a game for you.

It’s called Reckless Driver. A game that started as a small Unity engine game back in 2009, and has since grown into a community driven and fully modifyable game that takes inspiration from 90's and early 00's driving games like the Midtown Madness games.

I came across it when it’s creator posted it to IGCD, and soon members from the site began...

D Case Alert!

D Case Alert!

If you haven’t hit up your local Target lately, I’d suggest getting over there ASAP, because they’re getting D cases in.

Went there today, and the pegs were mostly older 2017 stuff, but there was surprisingly a small amount of D case models up at the front.

Not a lot of great stuff, but I did pick up a ‘17 Wrangler and Buns Of Steel, which is actually a pretty cool model, kinda like a HW take on...

Went to a mall today, there was a few venders selling some stuff.

One of those vendors had a large selection of older diecast cars.

I had some cash on hand, so I ended up buying some.

I'm currently focused on watching today's NASCAR Sprint Cup race, so I'm not gonna be taking pics of them at this time, but here's a list of what I got, plus the three cars I got at Walmart afterwards, as they had...

GTA Online (Xbox One) Knockout Racing

GTA Online (Xbox One) Knockout Racing

I’m in the mood for some racing on GTA Online. The catch is, it’ll all be knockout racing. Each driver will be eliminated after each lap.

I’ll start with an invite only session where I’ll start the races from.

Those in the crew Grand Theft Oppo or on my friends list already will be getting invites shortly.

So, who’s in for some high stakes racing?

It's Saturday, the 7th of February. That means we're just a week away from the first race (albeit, a non-points one) of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

This year's event looks to be a pretty exciting one, with new eligibility requirements and one of the largest fields in the history of the event.

Previously, the requirements to be eligible to run were either to...

Stupid NBCSN...

Stupid NBCSN...

I’m watching the Xfinity Series race, and they just come off of a commercial.

The last one, a DraftKings one...right before it goes back to the race, a certain something flashes on the screen...the last frame of an Elio Motors commercial.

Why couldn’t they show that one instead?

Robbed me of an OPPOrtunity to post about seeing one on TV, like others have lately.

Stupid NBCSN...

GTA Online Mashup (Xbox One)

GTA Online Mashup (Xbox One)

I’ve just thought of an interesting idea for something to do in GTA Online.

Imagine being in an Invite Only session with other people, and deciding to start replicating another video game in that session.

That’s exactly what I have planned for tonight.

The idea is to replicate one of my favorite things from Burnout Paradise: going into a freeroam session and starting an all-out battle, like a...

My First K-Day, plus SO much more!

Today, I went to my very first K-Day. The Kmart I went to is pretty much the last one within an hour of me, so it was really the only feasible option.

The procedure here was simple. Everyone gets a ticket, tickets are drawn, and you get a case.

There were 25 cases and about 28-29 people there. Mostly adults and teenagers, with one or two young kids.

I was the 5th one drawn, so I got one of the...
