I think it is pretty obvious I don’t have the luck I used to have. Maybe more collectors in these here parts, definitely a large decrease in store visits, and who knows whatever else.
I will always enjoy the random Hot Wheels Super TH find. A few years ago I did the Super TH Challenge, where I tried to find all 15 Supers released in 2013 in the wild in the middle of the day. I think I went 12 for 15, which is pretty awesome.
But that has changed. In 2018 I found a 2017 Super (the Fairlady Z) in February, followed by my first 2018 Super (the Audi RS6) in December. I found the 52 Chevy as well, but that was with a friend and he kept it. That is quite the contrast from my consistent luck a few years ago.
It is even more rare to find multiple Supers in one store, especially in the middle of the day.
Have I said enough? I think you are getting an idea of that my week was like. It started with cutting open a 144-count shipper at a Smith’s, and ended with a very fruitful visit to a rural Walmart during the lunch hour. I documented both. Enjoy:
