  1. This case is a bit of a dud in my opinion. I’ve only seen bits and pieces of it so far, and am still looking for the Colorado and Corvette. I passed on the F-series Superlift though…it’s not as nice-looking as I thought it might be, so I can do without it. I was happy to pick up the F-550 pumper though, that’s turned into quite a prolific casting. I don’t know exactly how many they’ve released, but I have 10 now.

  2. The military Jeep is the only one doing it for me. The ‘Cuda color is not correct, nor is it very appealing. The others just aren’t interesting enough for me to pursue, well, any of them. Golden age? Not for me.

  3. I think that ‘Cuda is pretty funny looking. The color is ok on the border of drab, but the proportions are funky.. would be great for the kiddies who getting into collecting or Muscle cars.
    I didn’t see anything earth shattering here. so I was surprised wen I found the Globe Travelers nearby so I grabbed the GT40. It’s cool so I’m still on the fence about the wheel choice though! It has flat finish paint, which is different than the favored gloss coating, but I still want to see the Auto World version which seems to be the one to get (based on Lamley photos that is).

  4. Oh man have some people forgotten how to play with their toys. I found this case at lunch and bought 12 out if 24. The f350 is nice and the cap comes off. The Colorado is cool can’t wait to detail it lots of detail to it. Corvette is very well done love the green tint of the rims. The gems of the case are the two artic rescue vehicles. The tracked vehicle has great detail and will be around I’d say for a with all different decos that will come. Last but not least, the artic thunder, fantastic. All the details from the front bumper to the side mirrors, lights, ladder. And the oversize wheels fit perfectly. Take it out and roll it around great play value. I would like to found some more my self.

  5. I picked up the Morris Mini Van and passed on the Cuda and Willys Jeep. They were nice, just not what I collect. I did not find the Colorado or Corvette Police car at my first sighting of this wave, but did finally come across them last night. Originally I wanted these, but ended up passing due to the volume of Hot Wheels I expect to collect this year. I don’t have room for it all!
