A few years ago, the title of this post would have been “Hot Wheels Kmart Collector Days is this Saturday! Get ready!”
With Kmarts all over the US dropping like flies, this event has become more of an online deal than an in-store event. It is a bummer, because Kdays was always a good time to meet other collectors, see some truly indescribable behavior, and grab a few cool models.
Now, the event is essentially learning what the exclusives and possible Super TH will be, as well as what the mail-in is, and determining whether it is worth spending $40 to have a case shipped to you.
It seems that many collectors have determined that this next case, for the September 16th event, is in fact worth it. The cases went on sale early Sunday, and also sold out early Sunday. That was quick. Too quick. West coasters woke up to find them gone.
But you had to assume there would be more. And there are. As of right now, there are cases available:
With two exclusive RX-7 castings, and 2017 Q case models, this is a desirable case. Some might even pull the last Super TH of the year, the Fairlady Z.
I just ordered mine. Unboxings coming.
