GreenLight takes Collectors on the Scenic Route with County Roads
January 11, 2012

1:64 County Roads has more rural to reveal as new castings are incorporated into Series 7.

Indianapolis, IN (January 10, 2012)1:64 County Roads provides small town perspective. Focusing on home grown USA life outside the big city, these vehicles construct an overall image of blue collar, wholesome families, and American roots.

Series 7 delivers a duo of new tooling; the 1977 Chevrolet G20 Van, is a brand new addition to the GreenLight line up and the 2011 Ford Explorer, a new tool that was just introduced one month before. Both vehicles are decorated as service vehicles to fictional outdoor business. Just the type of businesses that create the scenic county roads we enjoy; law care and construction.

 

The models that make up the 1:64 County Roads Series 7 assortment are from only domestic automotive manufacturers, adding to the Small Town America appeal that collectors enjoy and appreciate.

Other expressions of superior detail in this collection can be seen all throughout, such as with the red fin and interior on the Daytona to the blue racing stripes on the Mustang. GreenLight has taken small town appeal, added a touch of fun familiarity and incorporated whimsical fantasy to create a complexly diverse series, representative of true County Roads through America.

These 1:64 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed by the respective auto manufacturers. The release is scheduled for January 2012 and will be available through official GreenLight official hobby shops and wholesale dealers, as well as at Toys ‘R’ Us and Meijer.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
