Description

Back in the 90's Mattel bought the former British diecast manufacturer Mettoy, Ltd. After that, Mattel produced some former Corgi castings and reissued them on "Corgi Auto City" (1991-1995) and later on regular Hot Wheels blue cards (1995-2003).

Some Ex-Corgi castings were exclusively made for US-Sets like FAO Schwarz and some were made for the European Market - the Auto City Series.
