Nasta Reactors - TransEuro
Anyone who reads the Preserve with a semblance of regularity has heard me carry on about the little known Reactors
line from 1989 by Nasta. Well, as you can see from the checklist
I still have not completed my quest of assembling and photographing all of the American released vehicles in this set, but there has been a significant development in the Preserve Reactors collection!
Shortly before the holidays of 2010 I was tipped off to a euro-ebay auction that sported a pile of Reactors in alternate euro-packaging, the likes of which I had never even imagined! Add to that the revelation that several of the items featured were not even in the Preserve in their US released personas. When the price proved to be a bargain (though they were a bargain at twice the price!) the answer was clear - get them on the slow boat to my distant land! And a slow boat it was - just as I started to believe that it had all been a dream, a box from France has arrived. A box that appears to feature stylized line-art of french fries ("macfries"), no less, to my great amusement! I haven't had time to photograph everything properly, but I wanted to sail into the weekend with that story, and with this, a teaser picture of things to come!
