This is something I just had to pass on…
Rare Hot Wheels variations have always been an interest of mine, and I know I share that with quite a few of you. I have had personal conversations with quite a few people about their favorites, those they were lucky to find, how much they paid for a specific vari, and what variations still elude them.
Well, if you are a variation collector, and still have quite a few variations on your want list, we HIGHLY suggest you check out the listings from this seller:
This is a goldmine of variations, from an era (2004-2012) when variation-collecting was serious business. Looking through these listings, my jaw would continue to drop. As soon as I would gather said chin back, the next listing would make it happen all over again. It is an event just to see ONE of these variations on eBay, let alone all of these together.
There are 210 hard-to-find variation listings, and among them you will find (click on the title of each to go directly to the listing):
The 5sp Datsun is becoming the grandaddy of JDM variations, and is easily one of the hardest variations to find for any vari collector.
Another group of variations that every variation collector was after, and all still garner a lot of attention today. The grey with 5-spokes is especially difficult to find.
The white with 10sp is probably the rarer of the two, but the FTE is probably the more desired. It was an official Mattel release that was for some reason released in very small numbers, and only on a short card.
This one was hard to find, but not as difficult as others. As the Evo has gained popularity over the years, this one has become highly desired.
Not as rare as the black CTS with lace wheels, but still very hard to find. And it looks really good too.
Standard was comold wheels without the chrome lip. I got lucky and found one at TRU back in the day. But as rare as that one was…
Whoa. I remember hearing about this one. I had NEVER seen one until today. Sigh…
Only of 3 others. This is on a lot of want lists.
No one know how it happened, but some COPO’s appeared with white interior. I have always wanted one, but never found it.
Transitional from the black version. The orange was supposed to have clear windows.
Another in very small numbers. I got lucky and found one at Kdays packaged with a license plate holder.
You might see me bid on this one. A model I once had, and have regretted selling it ever since. The very first models off the line had red wheels, but it was quickly changed to chrome. Very few made it to the pegs. I have not seen it on eBay for years.
There are some of the models that caught our interest, but there are quite a few more, including Snap-On Skylines, no tampo R32’s, and on and on. We highly suggest to check them out. These don’t pop up often…
