5/29/05 - Holy U-Scan, Batman!
Found the Batman Begins Batmobiles at Kroger of all places.  Despite being a new, full display, I could only find the black and camo Batmobiles.  They didn't have the cycle or copter.  I picked them up for $1.99 apiece.


James Dean 50th Anniversay 5 Car Pack Muscle Machines 1/64 71187-A05 diecast set

5/21/05 - For the James Dean Fan
Fifty years after the death of James Dean, Muscle Machines releases this interesting set of cars featuring artwork depicting the legendary actor.  Thanks to Movie Car Mania for the info. 

By the way, check out my buddy Dennis' new website www.jamesdeansociety.com  It's currently under construction, but when completed, it will be the most thorough James Dean site out there.  He also produced an awesome James Dean documentary.  The DVD is available through the site.
