r h b is a freelance director/dictator from a small farm outside of escazu, costa rica.

he writes infrequently, and when he does contribute his posts are poorly written and only in lower case letters.

he also writes every sentence on a separate line.

aside from infrequent posts, he believes he knows something about design and occasionally imparts this (lack of) knowledge on actual designers.

he also screams a lot.

we are thrilled that the MM can now be found in the market after an agonizingly long wait prior to finding a new home with maisto.

to be able to have product at retail 6 months after our deal was finalized is remarkable given some of the obstacles we had.

but the product is there, not without a couple of hiccups along the way.

Genn

after several years of sitting out the radio control expo rcx (http://www.rcx.com/), we have committed to attending the show and will be taking a small booth in the die-cast collector's expo, and although the booth will be small, we expect plenty of excitement.
We will have 1st looks at series 12.1 in all 3 scales, plus r/c. we will of course have the 1:6 willys on display, and it will be looking stellar..
we'll have some hand-outs, post-cards, etc. and, maybe even a drawing or 2 for some brand new MM t-shirts.
but the question on your mind, i know, is why oh why do you tease us with a picture of a gorgeous female in this post?

some of you might be wondering - how did Muscle Machines get here?
how did Maisto wind-up the owner/manufacturer/seller, of one of my favorite brands of die-cast?
here is the story, short (?) version:
for the last couple of years, Maisto has sent some designers to attend the diecastspace.com show in las vegas.
we put together some giveaways, create a poster, sign some autographs, and take in all of what vegas has to offer.

rcx

rcx (http://www.rcx.com/) is billed as the ultimate radio control expo, and is happening april 28-29 at the long beach convention center.
buried on the RCX website is a little blurb - "we have learned that Maisto/Muscle Machines is sending out a crew…"
to be honest, 3 weeks ago, it actually read  "we have learned that jada is sending out a crew…"
so either jada is no longer sending out a crew, or they don't have anymore room to add that we are not just sending out a crew, manning a booth, showcasing series 12.1, and unveiling Miss Muscle Machines 2012, or they are too overworked to re-write their die-cast section of the show.
either way, we will be there.

thanks for your patience and your amazing passion with this unique collectible.
we will share with you as much insight as possible as it relates to the creation and production of MM.
the site should be pretty simple to navigate, but for first-timers, this is what to expect:
