DD Customs - Transformers Bumblebee

The year 2009 saw the sequel release of the Transformers with "Return of the FALLEN". The year 2009 also saw the release of BoxMan's Custom featuring Bumblebee in the DAIRY DELIVERY casting. Not only the Dairy was a customs, the overall packaging also was customized with TRANSFORMERS logo and bumblebee names on it. Also, a very well design Dairy Delivery bumblebee in robot mode on the packaging. Simply awesome piece of artwork that u can expect from the BoxMan's Customs.


The Bumblebee Dairy delivery spots a bumblebee yellow body color. The yellow used is not from the live-action movie yellow but the classic animated TV series yellow and with black stripe from engine hood to roof which is from the movie. Clear window and chrome base. Also feature real riders tires.


Autobots logo on both sides of door and "Transformers" word at side. The customs feature a very nice and realistic design that looks like the body has peeling effect and show what underneath the outer layer. Sort of like a "Battle Damage" of Bumblebee. Lastly, the back reads "MORE THEN MEETS THE EYE... " Truly an awesome piece of work there.

This is a limited piece release and is not available mass market. Be prepared to fork out a hefty sum for this Bumblebee.

FIRESTONE is the License Deco for 2010 Diary Delivery Slick Rides Series. Featuring Real riders wheels with "Firestone" trademark on them. Awesome.

Malaysia 20-Car Gift Set

Back in 2003, Mattel challenged their three manufacturing factories to design a special 20-car theme pack using castings that they had available. Jumping at the chance to showcase their strengths and talents, the factories eagerly accepted the task with care and dedication. The Malaysia 20-Car Gift Set was the result from Mattel Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MMSB), which is located in the state of Penang, Malaysia (also known as the "Pearl of the Orient"). The factory began operation in 1981, and it has produced over two billion cars since then!

Along with 18 cars from the 2003 stable, the Dairy Delivery® and the Fandango® feature exclusive decorations available only in this collection! The 20-Car Gift Set of Hot Wheels® cars also features handsome, foldout packaging.

2009 - Modified Rides (all colors)

Ebay's package arrived over the weekend and with it bring me the last and final color for 2009 Modified Rides' Dairy Delivery, the Silver anodized DD which is the K-mark edition. Behold all 3 color variations as shown below.



A little something difference with the new K-mark silver DD card graphics is that the DD is shrink to a smaller scale as compared to its predecessor. I think this is because there are some collectors that want to collect the card graphic and since both the green and yellow DD graphic is large and below the plastic blister, its kinda hard to have the card undamaged while opening the blister. Mattel did a good job here by making the graphic smaller and above the plastic blisters to allow undamaged graphic cards for card collectors.



Close up pics on all 3 color variations. From my view, my favorite would be the Silver follow by green and lastly the yellow. Overall great tempo and tagline, the "REDLINE RACING". This wrap up the 2009 Modified Rides series, hope there be more DD for 2010 in the mainline.

2009 - 1:87 / HO (Since 68's Dairy Delivery)



("The 1:87/ HO line has it all in a smaller scale, including Hot Wheels® collector favorites, tuners, exotics – even the 1966 Batmobile™! These cars pack a lot of detail into their itty bitty bodies.") Quote from HWC.com

Each casting come in with an acrylic box casing with a black base for display or easy storing. Although its in the 1:87 scale, it is highly detail.

Discussion : Why do you collect DD?


Why do you collect the DAIRY DELIVERY?


I started collecting Hot wheels (HW) in 2006 and my 1st Dairy Delivery is the 2006 Treasure Hunt (TH). I was totally taken back on the design and tampo on the TH series and from there onwards i slowly focus my collections on the DD casting. What i like most about DD is that, there are so many of them with awesome tampo, that is because the DD have a great large area for great tampo to apply on. My favorites DD so far is the 2005 Japan Custom Show DD. I like to have loose DD for my collections as you can see all the sides of the DD and admire them and touch them.

Currently i've about 40 loose DD of various series and about 30 plus DD on packaging. Hope to collect as many DD as possible and hope other DD collectors would share their view on DD collectings.
