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. The … Continue reading Super Showcase: Hot Wheels 2018 P Case Ford Escort RS1600 Super TH

In what “Era” is the Hot Wheels World? Definitely the Cool Wagon Era.

We speak in "eras".  The consensus among most collectors is that we are in the JDM Era.  That is probably accurate.  Japanese cars are crazy popular among collectors, and we are seeing several new castings each year.  "Era" implies an eventual end, and I don't think Hot Wheels Japanese cars are going anywhere.  It might … Continue reading In what “Era” is the Hot Wheels World?

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.

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.
