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.

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.

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.

So what is it about the hunt? I know the answer, because I am a Hot Wheels collector, and I think I experience the same amount of joy that the rest of you do when I come across a Super. I definitely didn't get into collecting because of Treasure Hunts, but I have learned to … Continue reading It isn’t dump bin diving, but opening Hot Wheels factory sealed sets is fun too.
Ah, the Lamley Award category of all categories. Nothing gets folks riled up like Super Treasure Hunts. There are entire websites and social media accounts dedicated to them. They make grown men cry (and whine). They can turn a bad day into a good day. They turn kids into collectors. They create friends and enemies. … Continue reading Lamley Awards Poll: What was the BEST and WORST Hot Wheels Super TH in 2017?

The Super vs Super feature continues, with another obvious one. I will try and get more clever on my pairings, and Porsche vs Porsche isn't clever. Both are Porsches (duh), but they are also racing cars, and sport interesting Real Rider wheels. It is actually the wheels that made me feel like they were a … Continue reading Super vs Super: 2018 Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5 and 2016 Porsche 993 GT2
