This is something new for our readers at Lamley, and we would surely appreciate your feedback.
Thanks to our friends at Grana Toys, we were able to acquire and open a sealed K case, and as we did, we took photographs of everything we pulled. Many of you have asked us to do case reports, but instead of filming videos, we thought we would do it the Lamley way and take photos.
Before we get to it, we want to let you know that Grana Toys is taking pre-orders for the US K Case, at both their ebay store and their website. Follow these links:
And, as a special offer to Lamley readers, if you order from the website and enter the coupon code “Lamley” at checkout, you get a special discount. They will also discount the more cases you buy. Don’t let it pass.
So, here is our unabridged photo essay of what we pulled, three by three by three.
Let’s start with the case:
And now for the first 36:
(New Model Alert – Rig Storm)
(Vega wheel variation)
(Treasure Hunt Alert)
One half down, one to go:
And now for the next 36:
(New Model Alert – Let’s Go)
(Most Lamley-esque trio of the case)
(New Model Alert – Project Speeder)
And there you have it. Lamley’s 72-count case. A few details:
– No Super. The ’83 Silverado is the Batch K Super, but it didn’t show here. Thankfully we just got ours from another Lamley friend, so prepare for a First Look soon (we will be setting her free).
– Of the models new to the K case that interested us the most – Porsche 993, Skyline 2000GT-X, Mercury Cougar, Gran Torino Sport, Chevy Silverado – only the Torino came more than one per case. Kind of a bummer to see the others so limited:
Alas, one is all we need for First Looks, so look for those soon. We assume these will all be in bigger numbers in the M case.
– Happy to see the teal Civic and red Datsun 620 in the K cases, but that is expected. Recolors tend to run at least two batches. Surprisingly, Snoopy also makes an appearance. We do wonder if we will see Snoopy in several batches, like we did the Angry Birds cars a couple of years ago. We don’t know if The Homer will make a return appearance as well.
– The regular Treasure Hunt is the Ford Fiesta. The first time from what we remember we have seen a model used as a Regular Treasure Hunt two years in a row. (It has happened with Supers at least three times.)
If you have any questions about this case, let us know in the comments section. We will be doing First Looks on many of these, but if you have a specific request, let us know.
In the meantime, get your K Case pre-ordered at Grana and let us know what you get, especially if you are lucky enough to pull that fantastic Super…
