The 2012 Lamley Awards: What are your Top 3 Hot Wheels variations for 2012?

After taking a week off while our friends on the East Coast dealt with Sandy, we are back to the voting.  Only a few more categories to go, including the big one – 2012 Hot Wheels Model of the Year. 

But before we get to that, how about one of the most subjective categories there is – your Top 3 Hot Wheels variations for 2012.

Obviously you know what I mean by subjective.  First of all, not everyone collects variations, or even cares.  Second, asking for someone’s Top 3 variations can mean a lot of things, so I am leaving that up to you.  Maybe your three are those you percieved to be the most rare, maybe those you percieve to be the most sought-after or valuable.  Or maybe it is a vari that makes the model look better.  Could it be the 3 best variations you found?  It could be all of those things. 

So I am deliberately leaving it open to your interpretation. 

Give me your Top 3, and if you feel so inclined, maybe a sentence or two on why you chose those three.  Remember, you can vote one of three ways:

  1. Leave a response right here on the blog.
  2. Leave your choices over on our Facebook Page.
  3. Or email your Top 3 to lamleygroup@gmail.com.

I am looking foward to your response.
