Showcasing the Supers here on Lamley will never be an unveiling. The Super game remains strong, and that means hunger for info will continue to inspire leaks from the Hot Wheels factory.
It’s a bummer that news of new Supers usually comes from unfinished models shown in grainy photos. The only thing I can do is to at least showcase the Supers in the best way possible – through good photography of Mattel-approved models. So that is what I will do.
Starting with the Datsun 620, I will showcase the Supers throughout 2018 as they start hitting stores. Undoubtedly the Super-obsessed among us will know what to look for, but this is my chance to help us appreciate these beauties before we move on to the next one.
And beauties they are. Especially the first of 2018, the Datsun 620. Already a popular casting, this particular 620, whether in its basic or Super forms, is a step above.
Exclude the Super for a second, and my thought is this mint green 620 with camo trim would be a hit, ESPECIALLY sitting on the new steelie basic wheels. For me this is the best wheel this casting has ever had, including premium. They work perfectly.
But even the awesome wheels can’t overtake the Super. The whole package is what a Super is all about. Extra deco, great paint, and fantastic Real Riders. Maybe it is just the dark wheels, but this Super is just beautiful.
And it is out now. 2018 cases are hitting TRU, Walmart, and Target. That means this 620 along with a slew of other good ones.
So go find one. Tag us at #lamleyfinds on IG if you do.
