GreenLight Collectibles is rolling out a new assortment of die-cast vehicles created in partnership with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM).

Under a new multiyear licensing agreement, GreenLight will design and market die-cast versions of vehicles featured in numerous MGM film and TV projects. Beginning later this year, GreenLight will offer MGM-licensed vehicles in 1:12, 1:18, 1:24, 1:43, and 1:64 scales across a variety of its brands, including GreenLight Hollywood, Artisan Collection, Hollywood Hitch & Tow, and more.

“The depth of the vault at MGM lays the groundwork for some very exciting offerings, many of which have never been pursued as die-cast vehicles in the past,” says Russell Hughes, president of GreenLight Collectibles. “From the Rocky and Creed franchises to Thelma & Louise, RoboCop, and Rain Man, we’ll have our work cut out for us over the next several years.”
