I have spent the last week juggling two family reunions. You can come up with your own conclusion on how that is going, but you may have noticed the lack of videos the last few days. I'm a bit tired. But I have a reprieve coming. I get to nerd out at the Matchbox Gathering … Continue reading The Matchbox Gathering of Friends Convention is this weekend. Prepare for a 2020 Matchbox onslaught.
The Mitsubishi Lancer GSR Evolution has been high on a lot of want lists since Tomica Limited Vintage announced it, and it is finally here. So is another Mazda 787b. And a pair of Datsun Bluebirds. And for good measure, some Toyopet Crowns. And they are all at Japan Booster: Tomica Limited Vintage at Japan … Continue reading Check out the new Tomica Limited Vintage now available at Japan Booster
I like Audis. Of course there is Audi heritage, something I see the rally fans lose their shit over. Show them a classic Quattro, think Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Of course I can appreciate that era, and I totally do, but if I am going completely from a personal perspective, my love for Audis started … Continue reading Two years, two red Hot Wheels Audis.
Honestly, I don’t know if they are doing anything, but Mattel did slate the arrival of Hot Wheels id to correspond with Amazon Prime Day.

It is still one of the visceral pleasures of collecting - ripping a blister off the card and freeing a $1 model. No offense to some of the premium brands, but it is far better than unscrewing a tiny screw or using scissors to cut open a fully sealed package. So that meant the N … Continue reading Opening a Hot Wheels Bugatti Chiron, two Supers, and bunch of other stuff.
Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's Father. Bruce Willis is actually dead. Tyler Durden and Brad Pitt are the same person. I am Keyser Soze. The Hot Wheels Chiron is better than the Hot Wheels Veyron. Sorry to give the ending away before I even start, but I didn't want to totally pull the rug out … Continue reading Why am I even doing this? Hot Wheels Bugatti Chiron vs Veyron
We all go through evolutions as collectors. I hesitate to call them “phases”, but that might be an accurate term as well. But I’d like to think I get a bit more refined as time goes on. When I first got into collecting, realizing how fun the cars I obsessed over as a kid could … Continue reading The ‘41 Willys Gasser is the first of many RLC must-haves in 2019.
Gassers are naturally bonkers. Nothing is aesthetically right about them. But that is what makes them so wonderful. A car this nuts needs a matching deco, and Hot Wheels gives them to us.
