Guess what? Super Treasure Hunts are hard to find. And that is how it should be.

Yesterday I walked into a rural grocery store and walked by the seasonal section.  I like the seasonal section in this store.  There are always Hot Wheels.  And yesterday was no exception.  A fresh 4-sided shipper and a small dump bin.  And a little bit further down, this: An unopened basic shipper!  These moments don't … Continue reading Guess what? Super Treasure Hunts are hard to find. And that is how it should be.

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels Honda Civic Super Treasure Hunt & other 2019 A Case highlights

Hot Wheels A Cases can be a little mixed.  Typically a couple of exciting new models will debut, swimming in a sea of models from the previous year.  That is definitely what is happening with the 2019 A Case.  Two big debuts - R32 Skyline & Unimog - with a ton of Q Case models. … Continue reading Super Showcase: Hot Wheels Honda Civic Super Treasure Hunt & other 2019 A Case highlights

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels 2018 P Case Ford Escort RS1600 Super TH

14 of the 15 Supers (plus the bonus Ultimate Chase) have now been officially released.  Go through them, and I think it would be hard to say it HASN'T been a great year for Supers.  The time to review them all, and pick a best, will be here soon.  But collectively, they are great.

Unboxing: Hot Wheels 2018 International M Case (with a $uper surprise)

I have been doing Hot Wheels Unboxing Videos for awhile now.  When I can, I like to open both International and US cases, just to see if there are any differences.  Many times there are.  One thing I have never done is pulled a Super Treasure Hunt from an International case. Until today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yH27FBnJKw

Super Showcase: 2018 Hot Wheels ’52 Chevy Super Treasure Hunt

The combination of being a little diecasted out after Dallas and a two-day work added up to a two-day break.  But with all the cool stuff coming, it is time to ramp it up. Starting with a tremendous Super Treasure Hunt coming in the Hot Wheels J Case.  Mattel sent one over for a preview, … Continue reading Super Showcase: 2018 Hot Wheels ’52 Chevy Super Treasure Hunt

You need to be lucky to find a HW Super, and even more lucky to find this card variation.

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG4cMVVumRg Obviously the … Continue reading You need to be lucky to find a HW Super, and even more lucky to find this card variation.

Hot Wheels’ 2018 Super streak continues with the Indy 500 Oval Super TH

It's been a good year for Supers Treasure Hunts.  The ever-popular Datsun 620 started it off, and since then we've been on a hot streak.  But I think I have said that with every Super Showcase I have done this year. If someone showed me a list of the first five Supers of 2018, I … Continue reading Hot Wheels’ 2018 Super streak continues with the Indy 500 Oval Super TH

The HW Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R Super TH highlights a tremendous start to 2018.

Five Supers in.  Not a miss. 620 to Nova to Porsche to Mustang to Kenmeri. Supers don't have to be great castings, nor do they have to look good.  The most important distinction a Super needs is that it is a Super.  So while I enjoy doing the Best and Worst polls at the end … Continue reading The HW Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R Super TH highlights a tremendous start to 2018.
