MAISTO AMBULANCES

Here are some Maisto American Ambulance variations collected over the past few years. This casting is a copy of the Hot Wheels American Ambulance.

Cheers, J

Just on Tonka - has anyone bought the new diecast Tonka line? Are they also maisto? They are new castings, around 1/50 in size.
:happy:

Hot Wheels says that their casting is based on the Chevy Van front. Which is why I started collecting it
Kinda rough go on that one, doesn't look much like a Chevy Van front. But, I figured if they say so, who am I to argue.
And I find these fun to collect as there are tons of variations to look for.

Seeing as how it's been months since you asked, you probably already have your answer, but just in case (and since no one else chimed in), they're branded Funrise/Hasbro. Presuming, of course, you're talking about these:

and others in the series. (And, the answer to your first question is, yes.)

Yep those are the ones. I see no discussion on any of the diecast boards about them. Nice solid heavy diecast toy trucks.
