The end is here. 2015 is coming to a close, and what a year it has been.
I thought I could do a year-in-review type post, but there are a million directions I can go. I could talk about the Best and Worst of the year, but the Lamley Awards tackled most of that. Sadly I am still finding a way to incorporate Tomica Limited Vintage, Kyosho, Greenlight, and Auto World into the Lamley Awards, but those models are on a whole different level. Trying to pick a favorite TLV is near impossible. I still choose the Crown Wagon.
But I thought this was a good way to rehash the year. Lamley grew quite a bit this year, and almost all of the most popular posts of all time on the blog came in the last 12 months. So I thought I would link you to the most-read posts on the Lamley Group Blog from 2015. Some are predictable, others a little surprising.
Here are the 5 most-read, starting with the most popular of all. You can click on the link to read the story:
1. Ever encountered a Hot Wheels 72-count case full of Supers? Someone just did…
Zachary Bradshaw’s 72-Super find in Florida remains one of the craziest peg finds we have ever heard about, and one that garnered a lot of comments and opinions. How it happened remains a mystery. I still think it is totally fine that Zach bought them all. This post remains the most-read and most-shared story in the history of the Lamley Group.
2. Just Unveiled: Hot Wheels Porsche Series Exclusive 8-car set…
When we were still showing sneaks, this new 8-car Porsche Series garnered quite a bit of attention. Much better than other special sets like Tom & Jerry.
3. An Early Look at the upcoming 2016 Matchbox New Models…
I have been clamoring for awhile now that Matchbox is returning to form, and many of you agree. The best evidence so far is this special sneak peek of all the 2016 New Models that the team at Matchbox allowed us to see following the Gathering in July. Most of these still haven’t been seen in their final forms, but there is a lot to be excited about.
4. Just Unveiled: 2015 Hot Wheels ’96 Nissan 180SX Type X…
Easily the most talked-about model in 2015, these were the first images of the 180SX.
5. Just Unveiled: 2015 Hot Wheels 1990 Acura NSX…
Another of the most-discussed models of the 2015. There was a lot of excitement about this one, and most of you disagreed with me when I said I didn’t like it that much. My opinion has softened a bit, but it still isn’t at the top of my list.
So there is your Top 5 most-read. It is not a surprise that the sneak peeks dominated, but as I have moved away from the unauthorized sneaks, I am happy to report that you keep coming back to the blog, and I am thankful for that. I agree that it is always interesting to see what is coming, and there are a million places to find that info, but Lamley isn’t one of them anymore. Plus, hopefully you have noticed that Hot Wheels and Matchbox have been far more transparent with the info of late, and that is bound to get better and better. They even throw an authorized bone my way occasionally.
Outside of the most popular, there are others that I enjoyed writing and posting, so here are my favorite posts of 2015, starting with this one:
Breaking News: Kids still love Hot Wheels like no other toy…
Why is the 2016 Hot Wheels Ford Fiesta so special? You have to go back in time with Michael Heralda to 1998…
Lamley Readers, time for your feedback. Should Matchbox do Treasure Hunts? And if so, how should they do it?

Thank you! Another great year indeed. I always enjoy the variety of 1/64 diecasts I find on here.
I think you should not do any more tomica or kyosho posts
Yes, thank you! Lamley Group is my most enjoyed blog by far! Keep it up and Happy New Year!
I really like that idea for the #mymatchboxpegs. That really helped matchboxcars to come in to most stores. I recently found your blog and i like what you have to say about hot wheels \ matchbox cars 🙂 keep it up! Keep posting good info in cars. And marry Christmas / happy new year.
