Matchbox vs. Hot Wheels

When it comes to collectible cars the two most common standouts are Matchbox and Hotwheels.  Though the cars may look similar, each brand is distinctive in its own right.

Matchbox

Matchbox is the oldest of the two brands, starting being sold in Great Britain back in  1953 by Lesney Products in Matchbox containers.   The brand has come to include a wide range of  toy cars, die-cast collectibles, and plastic model kits.

Matchbox has since been purchased by Mattel, but they have strove to keep the theme of the brand along the way.

Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels were introduced by Mattel in 1968 and was introduced to compete with Matchbox in the die-cast toy car market.  The competition continued till Mattel bought Matchbox in 1997.   Hot Wheels has gone after collectors market with limited edition models as well as their standard runs.

Differences.

The greatest difference between the two brands is that Matchbox is primarily a producer of real street production cars, and Hot Wheels offers a wide range of Fantasy and Concept cars.  Such as the Hot Wheels Halloween Series

 

If you are looking for some great die-cast cars , we have them at Robbies Hobbies.

Why get a drone for Christmas?

Drones are all the rage this holiday season. And we can see why, because drones make the perfect Christmas gift .

Here are four great reasons to consider getting a drone!

  1. They are a great Stocking Stuffer – normally the stocking is the last pick with it’s filling of socks, trinkets, and candy. Imagine the surprise and excitement with a mini quadcopter inside!
  2. They won’t break the bank – With prices staring at just $40 you can find drone well within your budget needs.
  3. It is a Unique gift – Most people probably don’t own drone. And if you take a look on like you will see from the army of Youtube and GoPro Videos out there, the fun is not limited to just one age bracket.
  4. It’s a gift that won’t collect dust – Unlike the sweater from their great aunt, your kids and friends will want to get out and enjoy the new drone, and of course don’t forget the camera!

Two Great option to check out at Robbies-Hobbies are
s-l1600-2The Hubsan X4 Pro Low Edition – the X4 Pro Low Edition is Hubsan’s mid-level answer to the DJI Phantom line up of camera drones. Built with two swappable versions of a 1-Axis gimbal, the Hubsan X4 Pro Low Edition is designed to give users the choice between mounting a GoPro Hero, the included HBS1080P camera, or their own smartphone.

Like most other mid-level quadcopters on the market, the Pro Low features GPS based flight controls to allow precise positioning and enhanced flight stability compared to relying on gyro-data alone. The controller contains a built-in LED screen to allow live FPV video streaming via the dual-band 2.4 and 5.8 GHz transmitter. Range is set to around 3300 feet!
