Welcome to Milezone.Com. Not sure when it was the official “closed”, but would guess it’s been at least 7 years?
What has happened since then, well I had moved to Springfield, MO, started a management company and have done quite well. Got into real estate, and some rental properties. All this time having a huge storage of diecast cars and knives from back in the days.
So now I think it’s time to dig out the stock and get to selling. Not sure after all these years how many remember Milezone.Com so I should give you a little background.
Milezone.Com started in 1998 only specializing in 1/64 scale diecast toy cars, back in Phoenix, AZ. Opened with less then $5,000 of inventory. In a few short years we became the #1 Johnny Lightning Hobby distributor in the USA. Also being the first to produced “Professional Custom Diecast” vehicles using the pad printing process.
Milezone.Com was the first to introduce “Subscription Program”, where you would sign up and automatically receive a new set of rides as they came in. At one point we offered the largest selection of single 1/64 scale Diecast in the world. Selling Hot Wheels, Johnny Lightning, Matchbox, Greenlight, M2 Machines, and many more.
We had many exclusives produced by Johnny Lightning, Greenlight and M2 Machines. Flames - The Series was the most popular exclusive, not to mention the Primer Series, The MZ Bus Project, and MPR (Milezone Performance Racing). We had well over 20,000 exclusives produced over the years.
when the “Diecast Toy Market” craze dropped was when I decided to venture to other means of income, although I surely missed this hobby.
So now what? Well to be honest, I’m not sure yet. I do know the stock of goodies that will make it to the website will be some many haven’t seen in quite a long time. So product listings will be quite interesting. Im not even sure there is a market anymore, but I have the time now to have fun with this, and see where it goes. I will offer many knive products as well, and maybe if the site gains any amount of traction, start to offer new products.
Thank you for visiting and I hope there is something here that you will find to make your collection interesting.
