Featured Collection: Welly Diecast 1:60

Perhaps, it is not too late to write about Welly Diecast.

Welly Die Casting Private Limited, a Hong Kong based toys based company produces varies type or toy cars including scale 1:24, 1:18 and R/C.

Lately, Jusco brought in this range of 1:60 scaled diecast models selling at RM3.90 each. It slightly bigger than Hot Wheels and quality comparable to Tomica but only one third of Tomica price.

For me, I feel Welly is adorable with its built quality over price, except the wheels need some improvement. If Welly has done that, they should stand a better position to their market competitors.

With the same price and finishing, would you buy Welly if their wheels look similar Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt? Would you tempted?

Cheers,

Remarks: Below are the few models I found good to have, more models are available for selction. Please see yourself.

Hi Yeo!

I got a few Welly brands and all their wheels are the 5 spoke wheel like the one in your Mercedes Benz, casting is great, hope to see more of them in the future. :)

Unfortunately their wheels are the only slight downside to an otherwise good casting. I dont know how the cars feel like to be handled overall, does it feel like its been built solidly?

Wheels aside, the paint job and details are quite good. However, I feel their colour choices and model selections will restrict them to only a certain group of collectors.

Actually, Welly has just appeared in Vietnam in 1:18 scale. Their quality is same with 1:18 Maisto: acceptable.
Anyway, maybe I have 01 more choice in 1:64 collection. :)
