Let me betray my DLM (open everything) roots for just one second, and pass on a must-have if you are a Car Culture collector.
Car Culture is the first Hot Wheels line that has compelled me to keep a set carded. Julian Koiles artwork from the first assortment on has been as collectable as the models themselves. So for two years now I have bought an extra set to keep carded. And protected.
That changes a bit with the release of Japan Historics 2, and I need the new large Sterling Protectors to protect them. It is the first release of new enhanced Car Culture for 2018. Everything has been upgraded. Deco, paint, castings, tool variety, and card size. As I opened the preview set for display, all the across-the-board upgrades were obvious. This set has become art.
Julian loves the new card size, because it gives him a larger canvas to work with, and it shows. The JH2 art is incredible. And yeah, it hurt just a bit to open these. Thankfully I have another set on order from A&J Toys.
So if you keep a set carded, may I suggest the new large protectors from Sterling:
Sterling is a Lamley Partner, and I have touted their protectors for awhile now. And the new large protectors could not have come at a better time. They fit JH2 perfectly. The cases are sturdy and clear, they don’t damage corners, and the stand up straight. Lamley Partner or not, these are the best protectors around.
Honestly, these are must-haves, and if you use “LAMLEY05” at checkout, you get a special discount. Order today to have them ready for when your JH2 arrives at home or in the store.
