2011 Maisto 1-64 #15175 Rescue Captain America (Phender)

Sunday Comics Sunday. Growing up, Sunday's were about kicikin' back, enjoying comic books or the Sunday Comics which came as a supplement to the newspaper, or watching the plethora of 'B' movies churned out in droves by the American cinematic machine: Westerns, detective stories, space, sci-fi, monsters, Bob Hope & Bing Crosby, the Bowery Boys. It all seems to revolve around a core of cheep, cheesy - but fun - adventure.  I had wanted the blog to be able to honor some of these moments by featuring anything related to that generalized, hazy Sunday genre but it has kind of turned into a Batman forum. I like Batman and there are soooo many cool things to collect but I need to break things up a little.
Today I have a nifty die-cast car to feature, a fairly recent release - last year - from Maisto. Maisto puts out a lot of nice diecast vehicles and today's offering is from a series of cars lettered for Captain America, Bucky, Hydra,etc. I'm not too crazy about the other vehicles in the series but this particular car has a nice retro look to it. The red-white-&-blue color scheme is muted, the red looking more like reddish brown/rust hue and the whites are either silver or grayed. Anywho, it's a nice little car with retro styling and cool graphics. Enjoy!
