DeskTop Toys

I got one i have been google searching for a bit, but figured i may have better luck here. I was curious if anyone has ever had their jeep immortalized in diecast? I would love to get a custom build that matches some of the changes I have made, or at least the stock looking one that matches my color. Goal is a diecast model for my desk at work. If anyone knows a company to start with, i would be greatly appreciative.

HotWheels maybe?
Pretty small and inexpensive, I'm not surprised they make them at all though.


Little more expensive...


I used to buy a few of the NASCAR Diecasts.
They can get into the $100 range easily for good ones with closeup detail.
Used to be Action Performance, looks like its now Lionel Racing.

Not a die cast but pretty cool.
I haven't put a model together in years.

Only 4dr jeeps I have are small die casts . If you have time and a steady hand, maybe you could hand paint one to match yours? I found this model to almost match my 03 rubicon. Fun project. Search 3000toys.com, good luck!

thanks GPNFRYK, that may be the ticket for me. I dont mind painting it myself. Help cure the Jeep mod itch when funds dont allow you to play with the big one from time to time.

Maybe one of those 3D printers can be used. It would mean your desktop scale Jeep will be plastic though.

Found this one online (Walmart). 2007 JK in stone white. I have the "full size" in last model year (2018 JK in bright white) so I thought I'd be cool to own the first production year as well and scale model. Even the details under the hood are accurate (3.8L)

the detail on that one @MartyJK18 is incredible. You found that at Walmart huh. I haven't been to Walmart in so long. I might need to swing by. Here we have a place called HEB for grocery, and they even have a plus model that is additional retail like Walmart.

I didn't find it in store however but online @ www.walmart.ca
It's kind of like with Best Buy where they have thousands of products not available in stores. I looked at several sites I had found that sells models like that and of all places, Walmart of was the only one that carried my Jeep

If you want it exact, here you go. https://yourcarindiecast.com/ Hope you don't need your second kidney, because these are not cheap. And you'll have to wait awhile to get one. Current back log is like 18 months.
