At least I got it posted before Hot Wheels Nationals. Last October, I held another Lamley DLM Party at the Hot Wheels Convention in Los Angeles. The premise is simple. Bring something significant to open (RLC, Convention Model, Super), open it, get a ticket, and possibly win a prize. Quite a few folks came, and … Continue reading It took awhile, but here is the footage from the Lamley DLM Party at the 2018 Hot Wheels Convention.
Collecting, when you think about it, is an odd thing. Who knows what wires crossed in our heads that made us want to gather things, but I think it is safe to say that most folks visiting this site enjoy collecting little cars as much as I do. We think of collecting in a myriad … Continue reading The excruciating process of saying goodbye to this special 1 of 100 SEMA-Exclusive Matchbox Skyjacker F-350

There also comes a time when you stand in front of your collection, noticing that you can't enjoy certain pieces like you'd like to, like displaying them.

I was surprised to see this 6-model set in a nearby Walmart today. I had no idea it was hitting. I bought the whole set to feature, but would have left a few if that wasn't the case. The no-brainer? The BRAT of course. I turned on my camera when I found the set. Enjoy: … Continue reading A new Walmart-exclusive set from Hot Wheels dropped.
