It has the card art, and it has the looks. Will the Selections ’66 Super Nova Gasser follow the path of the Candy Striper?

No. I'm just answering the question in the title right off the bat.  The purple RLC Selections '66 Nova, which arrived at collector's homes this last week, will not garner the same secondary market prices that accompany the Candy Striper '55 Gasser these days. But who cares!?!?! This thing is BEEE-YOOOOUUU-TEEEEE-FULLLLLL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbUTvx0g4E Gasser hype nada. … Continue reading It has the card art, and it has the looks.

I can’t tell you anything about the Hot Wheels Datsun 240Z HWC Exclusive. But these photos can.

The HWC Exclusive Datsun 240Z finally goes on sale today.  After a long wait - this model was previewed last year at the Convention - and a very strange detour, it is finally ready to make its way to collectors. I am fortunate to be able to preview a good number of Hot Wheels HWC/RLC … Continue reading I can’t tell you anything about the Hot Wheels Datsun 240Z HWC Exclusive. But these photos can.

Preview: Hot Wheels RLC Original 16 Custom Cougar

The Hot Wheels Redline Club has been the talk of the collecting world.  First, new memberships finally opened, which meant MANY new members were welcomed in.  And second, the first big sale of 2018 was the RLC Car Culture Bundle.  Things have gone fine for most, but some cracked blisters and assortment mix-ups have caused … Continue reading Preview: Hot Wheels RLC Original 16 Custom Cougar

Let’s see what cars are in my RLC Car Culture Bundle

It's been the talk among the Hot Wheels folks.  Some of you received RLC Car Culture bundles with some odd assortments.  Datsuns missing, replaced with extra Mustangs or Gassers.  There is no doubt that's a bummer, and hopefully you have called customer service. Because of that, I thought it prudent to open the three sets … Continue reading Let’s see what cars are in my RLC Car Culture Bundle

Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set

I've decided to move from only hyping JDM to only hyping Gassers.  At least for this minute.  Don't expect anything but Gassers here on Lamley from here on out.  Until the next post, but still.  Lamley only hypes Gassers.  They knock my socks off. And since I do, you can imagine how excited I was … Continue reading Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set

Don’t call it hype. The Hot Wheels RLC Bundle BRE 510 is a gem.

It is most certainly a phenomenon.  Not entirely explainable, but then again most phenomena aren't. But the BRE 510 is a thing.  It might create eye rolls from some, but there is no denying the two Hot Wheels 510's released with Brock Racing Enterprises racing livery are legendary Hot Wheels models. I have told their … Continue reading Don’t call it hype. The Hot Wheels RLC Bundle BRE 510 is a gem.

Rollin’ in my SVO. Mustang enters the Hot Wheels Car Culture world in style, yo.

The upcoming RLC Car Culture set is going to be a hit.  I don't think anyone disputes that. Adding a sixth car to each 2017 Car Culture assortment is a brilliant idea, and it is equally well-executed.  Each car fits its mix. My guess is the BRE 510 will be the most sought-after model of … Continue reading Rollin’ in my SVO. Mustang enters the Hot Wheels Car Culture world in style, yo.
