Car Culture is at the point that every release has incredibly high expectations. That is a blessing and curse to be sure, but thankfully it has been far more blessing than curse. Shop Trucks is the third mix released in 2018 (outside of Team Transport), and my guess is this will be a popular one. … Continue reading Opening Hot Wheels Car Culture Shop Trucks

A few weeks ago I previewed the new Matchbox Chevy Trucks 100 Years set, and a few days afterwards it appeared at Walmart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc5uUA1OJ94 Well, most of it did.

Now it feels like we are finally getting underway with Team Orange in 2018. After what was clearly a strong 2017 (Lamley Awards Poll coming), it seems that 2018 has been very slow to start.

And … Continue reading Lamley Preview: The fantastic Matchbox Chevrolet Trucks 100 Years Walmart Exclusive Assortment
Showcasing the Supers here on Lamley will never be an unveiling. The Super game remains strong, and that means hunger for info will continue to inspire leaks from the Hot Wheels factory.
