  • Is it me or currently the line-up for 1/64 Auto World just isn't exciting?

    Between all the GM diecast and just numerous Dodge Challengers, I just don't feel too enthusiastic about the selection. I would buy more but they are boring me with the low-riders to no end. Furthermore, I like the Impala but the current grill is rough and unfinished everything else is pretty sweet. I would buy more Johnny Lighting but aren't most of the old castings? It seems to me that Greenlight is offering more variety. The Chevrolet C-10 is nice but do I really need so many? Kind of like the M2 Machines 1956 Ford F-100.

    So I rattled off a little bit so what are your feelings? The question is are you satisfied?

    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

      I put "somewhat satisfied" because Auto World isn't as bad as M2 with this with their countless Coke cars. While I like the 1975 Eldorado, 1966 Suburban, 1977 Lincoln Mark V, and 1963 Chevy Nova, the lineup is still pretty pitiful when you stack it up against what Greenlight is doing.

      I want to see station wagons, especially Fords like the early 70s Galaxie wagon and the Pinto.
      And if you want to do lots of GM diecast, do NOT crank out so many Camaros and Corvettes. Make an Oldsmobile Delta 88, a Buick Special, or something like that.

      2012 Ford Explorer, I don't know if the folks at Auto World will do lots of, or any police cars. Greenlight has that cornered and they do a good job so it wouldn't really justify them doing one that is only a little better than the GL. Most are 4 door sedans and SUVs. Not one sedan has been released by them.

        Yeah but sometimes you want a different cop car! I know they made a CHP mustang. Im looking for one preferably with the lightbar

          This just proves one thing: Greenlight is superior!

          In all seriousness, new castings are always welcome and there are several they have I don't care for, but I like their lineup.

            Can't like what I can't find...
            The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

            Thank you for your understanding.

              Agreed on GLs. Ever since my first one. (nah more like first 5 because they were all bought at the same exact time two hitch and hauls and 3 normal models) i have been hooked on em. And you said after all when i first joined if i bought higher end models and now i do. Now i got i believe 20 and im loving each one.

                That is SO TRUE! If you do not find it you cannot like it because you don't see it

                  I've only grabbed a few AW releases. The Caprice and Impala low riders catch my attention but I'm hoping they put big rims on them for some future release because donks > low riders.
                  Personally I'd like to see more compacts and subcompacts since they make such a good comparison with the land yachts and because no one's done a really good Vega in true 1:64 yet.

                    I hope they do the one that Motormax did, but better.

                      I'm not sure if I like the aero nose or the flat nose more, better do 'em both.

                        It's be unrealistic to expect that I like every car. But if they do something I would be interested in buying, it's typically good enough that I'll buy it. So that says something. The Stealth and Supra are two great new castings.

                          I went with the first option. Outright majority of their castings look great to me. I typically buy ones I see on the pegs which I don't have cause for whatever reason they don't seem to show up at flea markets or toy shows much in my area on the 2nd hand market. I'm looking forward to the Mark V slated for release soon. Still only have quarterly releases for the AW line as a still relatively new company limits what they have.

                            Extremely satisfied, except for square body/hobby exclusive availability where I am.

                            I do wish they had folded the few truly viable JL/RC castings (Cord Phaeton, Hornet X, Aspen, 90s Japanese cars, G- and F-bodies, vans, VWs, '41 Lincoln, '51 Hudson, '50 Olds sedanette, 1935/1940/1948/1959/1962/1980 Ford full size trucks, roundie Chevy pickup, etc.) into the AW line along with the AW Deluxes and kept the new true 1/64 output all AW, and just put the JL and RC names to bed the way Zylmex, Playart, Fresh Cherries, Malibu, etc. have been.

                              Almost every diecast maker made their best models when they started out. As time goes on, they try to attract new buyers by going out in different directions. The excitement that we had when the initial releases came out seldom returns.
