If you've read Autoblog consistently for the past three years, you're no doubt aware of Automoblox, a collection of heirloom quality toy car of which we're particularly fond. Among other presents, every year at Christmas we give away an entire collection signed by the designer, Patrick Calello.

Patrick always contacts us first when there are new Automoblox being readied, and he's just revealed to us a new line of cars for the 2007 holiday season. Called Automoblox Mini's, they are a fraction the size of a normal Automoblox car and can fit in the palm of your hand. Despite that, they sacrifice nothing in terms of detail and quality. As always, kids (or kid-like adults) can interchange parts between the cars to create new vehicle designs, as well.

Whereas a standard Automoblox costs $35.00, an Automoblox Mini car costs only $7.99. Unfortunately, the Automoblox Mini line has proven to be more popular than the company expected despite having just arrived, so if you want some as stocking stuffers for Christmas, visit the Automoblox Store directly to preorder yours before the next batch sells out.

      Pretty wacky, I'm still just hoping to find a Matchbox Saab 9000. They exist, just not in production any longer.

      I have given the full size Automoblox cars to my nephews and they are consistently across the board a hit - they love them. They are very well made and worth the somewhat high price. The really cool part is the interchangeable parts, so if you have more than one, you can create new vehicles.

      Never seen these before. Seriously cool!

        Wow, thanks Johnnie. Nice guy.
        I actually just bought a Saab 900s off Ebay.
        I think I'm just gonna cool it for a while unless I come accross some incredible deal. Not that eight bucks or so is expensive. I've just gotta be a little responsible right now. Getting married.

        Thanks again.
