All About Greenlight Diecast

A more recent name in the diecast model industry, Greenlight Collectibles has proven themselves as a high-quality contender in the manufacturing business. Founded in 2002 by Kevin Davey, the company started off with an Indy Racing League collection and quickly added muscle cars. After quick success, GreenLight now offers a wide selection of vehicles including muscle cars, sports and racing cars, police cars, and themed lines like the Muscle Car Garage.

The GreenLight team prides themselves on their quality, authenticity, and attention to detail. New models are hand-sculpted in clay, which is then used to create a resin and eventually a steel mold after approval. Once the arduous process of creating the mold is complete and all the samples have been approved, the team can move on to production. The care and love GreenLight Collectibles puts into their work can be seen in each carefully crafted model. Check out the range of impressive Greenlight models offered at Collectable Diecast and start expanding your collection today.

GREENLIGHT 1/64 HOLLYWOOD - BREAKING BAD 2011 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8 REDThe 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 made an early appearance in the hit TV show Breaking Bad's episode “Cornered.” While its time on the show was short, only the duration of that episode, it sure made an impact on viewers. Fans of the show got to enjoy an intense and reckless drifting scene filled with doughnuts and other antics before watching Walt wreck the car and light it on fire. While the characters boast the car's specs at 470 hp with all the SRT8 features such as a top speed of 170 mph, the model actually used for filming was the older SE. The biggest tell is the single exhaust, though the small discrepancy doesn't make the scene any less incredible or enjoyable to watch.

While Walt and his son didn't get to enjoy the car for long, you can admire it permanently as part of your collection thanks to the work of GreenLight. On a 1/64 scale, this gorgeous red replica shows off all the Hollywood details of the Breaking Bad 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8.

GREENLIGHT 1/43 2011 JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED MOJAVE EDITION - BRIGHT WHITEThe Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was largely notable for being a unique 4-door convertible. The model gained a significantly larger wheelbase in 2006 and got new features with every update. 2011 saw the addition of larger rear windows, Bluetooth capabilities, and an option for automatic temperature controls. A complete interior redesign also made for greater comfort in the 202 hp ride.

Following their tradition of producing special editions, Jeep released the Mojave Edition in 2011, a combination of desert-themed colors with lizard decals. With the option of tan, white, or black hardtop and fender flares, GreenLight has chosen to replicate this vehicle in bright white. Every detail has been carefully recreated on a 1/43 for Jeep lovers and collectors alike.

GREENLIGHT 1/18 1969 ARTISAN COLLECTION - FAST & FURIOUS 6 (2013) DODGE CHARGER DAYTONA CUSTOMFast & Furious 6 saw a change for the franchise, with Dom Toretto turning in his iconic 1970 Dodge Charger for a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This sexy and sophisticated machine was a much better fit for the developed character, though a few tweaks had to be made from the original for filming. Because the classic car is so difficult to acquire and not ideal for consistency in filming, the crew had to replicate the vehicle. A shorter nose, lower rear wing, and fixed headlights were just some of the changes made. Interior changes such as a 430 hp LS3 V8 engine and Turbo 400 3-speed transmission turned this car into the supped up movie star it is.

The Fast & Furious franchise has quite a fan base, and if you are among the lovers of the incredible cars and mods featured in the films, you are sure to love the 1969 Artisan Collection edition of the Fast & Furious 6 (2013) Dodge Charger Daytona Custom from Greenlight. Enjoy all the sleek design features on a 1/18 scale in a gorgeous maroon color.
