1:64 Majorette Mitsubishi Lancer Evo WRC05

I was waiting for this Majorette Evo to be released here in the Philippines, but its like 2 years already. The main reason its taking a long time for them to release this batch is because the first batch of Majorette cars (the old WRC versions) took a long time in the shelves to be sold. So I'm not expecting this to be here soon.

Good thing, my friend who works in China gave me one as a gift!! A big thanks to my friend Alden for this!

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Ralliart Version

Finally I decided to get this Evo X version by Ralliart which is made by Vitesse. It seemed that Vitesse made good on this new release of their version of the Evo X with superb details and a great paint job! Will be looking forward to their next Evo releases which are the rally versions of the Evo X in different rally series.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Ralliart Version limited edition to 2008pcs.

together with my Lancer Evo VI Tommi Makinen Ralliart version and the Evo IX Ralliart version.

I am still missing out on the white Evo VII Ralliart version made by Mtech to complete this series.
