My Super Treasure Hunt Drought is over.

Hey it's my blog, so I can celebrate here if I want to.  I just found my first 2018 Super Treasure Hunt in the wild.  Hooray for me. I have always argued that the best thing about Supers is finding them, randomly.  Many love the brickseek-watching, overnight-raiding, early door warming no-holds-barred pursuit of Supers, and … Continue reading My Super Treasure Hunt Drought is over.

I don’t know what December will bring, but so far this is my only Hot Wheels Super TH find in 2018

I know.  Whhaaaaaaaaaaa. I have nothing to complain about.  But how, when, and where someone finds a Super is always interesting, and that includes what kind of luck I might have.  I don't hunt like I used to, and things have changed in my area quite a bit.  The hunt is quite the racket. But … Continue reading I don’t know what December will bring, but so far this is my only Hot Wheels Super TH find in 2018

It also means making space.  My storage unit gets out … Continue reading Digging for Hot Wheels Treasure in a mess of a storage unit.

A Super with no paint and no wheels is still a Super if Hot Wheels says it is.

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 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
