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.
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
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
The New Model would have been enough. It is superb. Bonus that it debuts as a beautiful Super TH as well. Photos coming. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wdlWMn5SuE
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
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
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.
I have a honey hole. Two great finds at the same rural store, off the beaten path, 16 months apart. And really nice Supers at that. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVnl2FivP8M
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
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.
