Which celebs stopped by their exhibit to check out the stylish toy cars and get a sneak peak of the new 007™ line of toys? MANY of them! Here are just a few:

“The Client List” star Jennifer Love Hewitt, “drove” away in style with a DUB Garage Blazerz.

DUB GARAGE BLAZERZ is all about lights, lights and more lights – hit the music and watch Blazerz glow! Signature DUB Edition styles with motorized driving action, custom music, and lights and sounds fun make Blazerz stand out from the crowd. Available in two models: DUB Edition DH5™ (Sports car) and DUB Edition DI7™ (Muscle car). Here is quick peek at DUB Edition DZ8 to be released this fall!


Californication and Sex and the City star, Evan Handler, revealed his secret agent style with Toy State’s 007™ Q-Branch Aston Martin Vanquish, from the “James Bond” movie “Die Another Day”.

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the “James Bond” movie franchise and the subsequent release of its latest film, EON Productions has partnered with Toy State to roll out an exciting new line of toy cars under the 007™ brand.

Q-Branch is featuring lights and sounds fun in the classic Aston Martin designs that have had James Bond driving in style for 50 years! Back-lit rear window bullet holes kick-start an exciting chase sequence, as Bond pulls away with motorized driving action before unleashing a dramatic spin out feature and returning fire with his light-up hidden weapons! His mission complete, the iconic James Bond Theme plays as 007 drives off to tackle his next mission.

Models available: Aston Martin Vanquish (Die Another Day), Aston Martin DB5 (Goldfinger) and the featured car from the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall.


Named one of the 11 Faces to Watch in 2011 by Australian industry magazine Encore, Callan McAuliffe, star of the upcoming film, The Great Gatsby, mixed beats with DUB Garage DJZ from Toy State at the GBK MTV Movie Awards Gift Suite.

DUB GARAGE DJZ – Freewheeling DUB Edition custom styles feature dual mixing decks and mixing sounds that let you be the DJ! Hip-hop music, fun vocal phrases, and exciting light effects give each DJZ ride its own unique personality!

Available in two models: DUB Edition DZ28™ (SUV) and DUB Edition DD6™ (Supercar). Coming this fall: DUB Edition DL4 (Luxury Car).


Any and all car toys from Toy State make the perfect gift for kids of any age and passionate collectors!
