I didn't do a great job on the Lamley Awards last year. You did. Each category got a ton of votes. Winners emerged, but I didn't spend any time announcing them. Lame! But, there is a little silver lining. I am going over them now, and it is interesting to see how we voted a … Continue reading Revisiting the Lamley Award Best & Worst Winners of 2017.

The first Matchbox 5-pack for 2019 is out, and boy is it nice. Called Blue Highways, and found by collector @Diecast58, who posted it on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqTNbTVA40U/ Dang that's nice. I am particularly fond of the SLR McLaren with black 5-spokes, as well as that yellow Camaro. Heck they are all great.
Pretty crazy prices for that black '55 Gasser Kroger exclusive right? The odyssey that has been the black 50th Favorites Gasser has been an interesting one. The alternate color to the standard pink release was originally set to be a Toys R Us exclusive. That was until there was no Toys R Us to carry … Continue reading You might want to hold off on spending $100 on that Hot Wheels ’55 Gasser Kroger Exclusive
You can insert the word, emoji, gif, whatever. But make it good, because this thing is stellar. The HW Design posted this yesterday: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqQXG7uHndO/ It can't be any better.

Looks like collector @sydneyhot_wheels had a pretty good hunting day: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqLUsB9gVAv/ That there is some Hot Wheels C Case models.

You can see the Super Treasure Hunt on the left, with a few other highlights on the right, including … Continue reading Hot Wheels 2019 Mix C just hit in Australia. Looks pretty nice.
I've said it is going to be an exciting year for Matchbox in 2019. Not that 2018 lacked excitement, but all the moving parts lines have been moved to 2019. And that is exciting. We have seen the Basic Moving Parts Preview already, so now we go premium. The Matchbox Team sent over the first … Continue reading Preview: Matchbox 2019 Superfast 50th Anniversary Premium with Moving Parts Mix A
I have heard the rumors, and seen the images. (I have even heard of some shady shenanigans in Southern California by some trying to get to them.) Special shippers are hitting Kroger stores all over the country, and they have variety to say the least. I found a fresh one today in my travels. Four-sided, … Continue reading I found one of those “A bit of everything” shippers at a Kroger store. And yeah, Kmart exclusives (!?!)
Do I collect Greenlight? I get that question a lot. I guess my honest answer would be "Do you really care if I collect Greenlight or not?" But I get it.
