Found Carded Yatmings in a Box

Going through a stored box the other day I discovered I had these, At least I think they all are Yats? The first pic is definitely since either the package or model is marked as such, the others, well, I always thought they were???

These Diamond Wheels packages below came from Woolworth, when they were still around.

The Speed Wheels below were all stuff I picked up at Walgreens drugs through the years.

The two loose police I question, they don't seem like Yatmings style, blacked out windows and maybe some other things, and I believe I might have got them in a Fast Lane two pack years ago, and they may have just ended up with my Yatmings, because I didn't know what they were.

If anything is not Yatming, please let us know, thanks!

The last two are indeed Yat Mings. The only two that aren't (that I can see) are Welly - the pink(?) VW Bug and the tow truck next to it. The ones I'm unsure of are the construction pieces in the same picture as the aforementioned Bug and tow truck. The front end loader is, I'm less confident of the bulldozer and the two excavators.

Thanks guys and thanks for the info about them.

Sean I will try to post some better pictures in coming days of the ones you are questioning, I can say from just looking at them side by side the yellow bulldozer is the same as the green one above it, except for the blades on them, but it's hard to see them in these pics. As a side note, The bulldozers and excavators all have rubber tracks, except for me stealing them from the red excavator to use on an old Matchbox they happened to fit. :D

Support your local demo derby.

Road Tough was a brand name Yatmings were sold as at various retailers up through the late 90s and early 00s. Speed Wheels was an in house brand for Walgreens and featured Yatming, Welly, Zylmex and I think Maisto as well. Motormax models may have been used as well at Walgreens.

The 800 series YatMing models are typically constructed as your two: body mounted to a plastic chassis that has front seats molded in, open front windows to see said molded seats, and blacked out windows the rest of the way around. Your two cars, in case you didn't already know, are the 1993 Chevrolet Caprice and 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

All kinds of great info thanks guys. Dean I did figure out the makes, but had no idea of the model years of those two.

Here are those bulldozers, but forgot to shoot the bases on the loose one....
