~ Majorette Peugeot 407

Hoho this my latest Majorette die-cast bought 2 days ago, Peugeot 407. For almost more than 10 years didn't buy any Majorette car since my childhood age. Majorette was my favourite die-cast brand last time. Majorette mostly focus on France's brand car as the manufacture company itself was based in France last time but now is based at Thailand. Quality wise, France indeed produce better quality. Nowadays, new Majorette die-cast has become lighter as the new base is made from plastic. However, those reissue old Majorette die-cast car is still made from metal for both the body and base of the car. Selection of paintjob is a big issue during the purchase of a Majorette car as they has bad quality control for most of the cars but not all. I would put the quality control of die-cast brand within the same price range as below:

Tomica>> Matchbox >> Hotwheels / Maisto>> Majorette

The scale of this car is 1/61 and it actually has pearl gold colour instead of brown shown by my photo.

Peugeot 407 has very class looks and is sporty. The logo and headlamp of this car are painted. The black portion at the bumper is made from black plastic.

Majorette has produced their die-cast with door mirrors. Those rims are very well-match with this baby.

The rear lamp and the emboss "Lion" logo are painted. Its really amazing that Majorette is able to produce such tiny logo. This car has "carrier link" or "connecter link" at the back of the bumper as you can see on the photo below. Majorette does come out some "twin-pack" edition with "cargo"set to let the car carry but the price is more than price of 2 cars!!!

It has black detail plastic base and was made in Thailand.

I still have a few more Majorette cars. Stay tune for the reviews especially Majorette lovers!!! =)
