I love guest posts. For starters, it is because I don't have to do one. But even better, I can bring in an expert to share their knowledge with all of us. That is why was thrilled when collector Reece Brennan, a well-known variation collector out of Australia, agreed to do a complete rundown of … Continue reading A Hot Wheels Ford Falcon Race Car Walk-Through with Australian Variation Collector Reece Brennan
J Cases have just started hitting at Walmart. I only say this because it serves as a nice prep case for K, which just hit hobby dealers. Yes, using the word "loaded" to describe a basic 72-count Hot Wheels case might be stretching a little, but I will at least say there are a lot … Continue reading Lamley Unboxing: 2019 Hot Wheels K Case

But keep in mind they grabbed a different case for the short unboxing video they shot as well. And the contents … Continue reading Case Report: Hot Wheels 2019 K Case
Funny how things work out. I didn't plan on taking a couple of weeks off from the the blog and channel, but after a day or two, it was clear to me that it was the right thing to do. And it felt great. Surely a few things arrived in the mail, but nothing too … Continue reading Rapid Unboxing: Hot Wheels 2019 K Case
