I finally got the Hot Wheels H Case Super Showcase up on the YouTube Channel. There was a delay this time, and for good reason. Mattel sends the Supers over for me to preview for you, but the card art on the ZL1 Camaro they sent from the H Case looked different.
Obviously the original plan was for the Camaro to sport red-lipped Real Riders, as we saw at the Sneaks Presentation at last year’s convention:
Those plans obviously changed, but not before the card art was created. That card art was obviously changed, but obviously a few made it to market. I didn’t know if the sample Mattel sent was just from an in-house example, or if it would be found in stores. Well:

Seeing the red wheel card vari show up in stores means maybe I can just open mine for the feature. Who else has found it? #thelamleygroup #lamleyfinds #hotwheels – #Repost @rotornutfd3s with @get_repost ・・・ Good Friday!! Only one Super in this H case bin but it's on the early card art card! (@thelamleygroup) And some Miatas and Skyline Wagons as well! #hotwheels #hotwheelscollectors #supertreasurehunt #hotwheelscarculture #hotwheelscargocarriers
So there will be some who are lucky on top of lucky if they find this red-wheel card. I’m a DLMer, yes, but I know when to keep something carded. I traded for a standard Super with a friend, and used that for the Super Showcase above. Card art aside, it’s a cool model.
