It is a post for another time, but we should all take a moment to acknowledge the end of Kdays. Kmart Collector Days rode quietly into the sunset this year, and it is a bummer. But it means a gap was created that needed filling, and two new entities have settled in. Brad at Orange … Continue reading If you are up for a Sunday HW hunt, October 20th is the official day Kroger stores are dropping exclusive color Q Case Shippers.
I am not even going to try to explain why I like Donks. It really isn't my place. I do, and I like them a lot, like I like a lot of car subcultures. While a Donk is technically a 70’s era Caprice or Impala, the term has come to loosely refer to plethora of … Continue reading Saturday Showcase: The forgotten Donks of 2006 Hot Wheels Hi-Rakers
That was fast. Looks like my 2020 B Case coverage is beginning, starting with this Rapid Unboxing video. Wheel Collectors got it yesterday, and the models are available. https://youtu.be/oG0zJ_uKWEg I'll have photos posted later.
I am not a diecast reviewer. Never have been. Reviewing diecast would be freaking boring. I'm a collector, who is in this hobby because I enjoy it. And it probably doesn't need to be said that I gravitate to what I enjoy. I say this because many times I will hear comments about how I … Continue reading Preview: There is more to the Hot Wheels R34 Skyline & ‘62 Chevy Pickup Convention Exclusives than you might think.

The Fast & Furious Off-Road might be the raddest.

I've been surprised to hear a few of you complaining that the Fast & Furious Premium set is a little played out. What is more surprising is that I am going to be the one countering, especially considering my opinion on Fast & Furious. I don't hate the Fast & Furious movies. I actually have … Continue reading Showcase: Hot Wheels Premium Fast & Furious Off-Road
It always seems early, but it is not. The Hot Wheels 2020 Basic year is beginning. My friend Ben Wright sent over these pics of his finds in Sydney, Australia, this past week, and now I am clamoring to see the 2020 A Case myself. The Subaru is the star, and the R32 a beauty, … Continue reading The first Hot Wheels 2020 models are showing up in Australia
Let's face it, the "much ado about nothing" factor in the Hot Wheels collecting world is a thing. We sometimes get caught up in looking for something that isn't really there. Something looks a little different, theories abound, a variation is created, a frenzy ensues.
