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.

It isn’t dump bin diving, but opening Hot Wheels factory sealed sets is fun too.

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.

Lamley Awards Poll: What was the BEST and WORST Hot Wheels Super TH in 2017?

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.

Super vs Super: 2018 Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5 and 2016 Porsche 993 GT2

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

One cool Por-SHUH Super Treasure Hunt this is, this Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5.

Por-SHUH.  Por-SHUH.  Por-SHUH.  Maybe I'll remember it better if I link it to "Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!"  Some of you will get that. I get grief for a lot of things, and my pronouncement of "Porsche" is near the top of the list.  I was defiant at first, as everyone I knew said "Porsche" as a … Continue reading One cool Por-SHUH Super Treasure Hunt this is, this Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5.
