Huck Gee – Flynn Skitch and the Batsby Balderdash GT250 #27
You're gonna want to clear your shelves and make space for this custom release from Huck Gee! Check out the Flynn Skitch and the Batsby Balderdash GT250 #27! This project has been a year in the making, from design to the finished product and we cannot take our eyes off of it.
Driven by Flynn Skitch, sponsored by Kingshead Whiskey and BPB Manufacturing, #27 is a garage modified Batsby Balderdash GT250 nicknamed "The Flying Geordie". This fat boxed beast is an absolute head turner and to hear this monster roar past at full throttle is a thing of sublime audible beauty.
Flynn himself is notable not only because he's an outstanding pilot (medaling in 3 Acorn Runs including Port to Port, Factory Haul 250, & Spring Byways GT), but because he's also openly reps his association with the Dapper Scoundrels, one of Blackwater's more notable gangster families...
The "Flying Geordie" features removable hood, exposed engine and air suspensions, articulated wheels, and suicide shifter. Flynn comes with a very dapper attire, hat, and arm tats. This set will come packed in foam and shipped in a branded wooden crate. This release is limited to 10 pieces and measures 14.5" x 7" tall for $1850 + S&H.
To purchase, send an email to sales[at]huckgee[dot]com ASAP. Payment due at time of ordering with shipping in the next 6-8 weeks.

Marsham Toy Hour: Episode 44 - Old School Edition
Marsham Toy Hour graces our ears with a brand new episode, which features special guests Ryan Rutherford and Chris Ryniak. In this episode, they basically sound like old toy geezers talking about the olden days of designer toys. A lot of the toys they had brought up had me search through eBay to see what was available on the secondary market, because just like them, they were some of the forgotten heroes of the toy era. Them mentioning these toys brought up a lot of regret of not picking them up in the past, which has now lead me to add to my list of followed searches on the evil bay. You can find their latest episode HERE or on YouTube HERE.
