Showcase: Hot Wheels Car Culture Circuit Legends

The second-to-last Car Culture release of 2018, and it's great one.  Hard to pick a favorite, especially with an Advan Porsche, a 787B, and a Le Mans winning Ford GT.  Plus a classic Corvette.  So I will just like them all.  But that has essentially been the case with all Car Culture. Here is a …

The brand new Hot Wheels Car Culture RWB Porsche has been unveiled. And oh man…

Christian Coujin from RAUH-Welt Begriff dropped this little doozy on IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlvdszTF8Y6/?taken-by=christiancoujin We have seen a lot of leaked images, but here is the completed product.  The RWB Porsche is coming, and will debut in the 2019 Car Culture line, the first of three scheduled premium releases.  I might question the number produced mentioned in …

Car Culture Euro Speed is at Target with the new 50th Anniversary shippers

Exhausted all your Walgreens looking for 50th Anniversary shippers?  Well drop what you are doing and head to Target.  Wait, hit a couple of Walgreens first.  My friend did and found these: Alright, now that you have exhausted your Walgreens, head to Target.  Another friend is traveling in Missouri and came across this: Yep, a …

Team Transport headlines the sneak peek models that Hot Wheels brought to Nationals. Here is a look.

You might have noticed that Instagram caught fire last night.  Blame Team Transport.  The Hot Wheels unveiled "The Board" last night at the RLC Party at Nationals, and while there was a lot to talk about, Team Transport grabbed the attention. https://www.instagram.com/p/BhQKw9oF2_U/?taken-by=thelamleygroup The Hot Wheels Team will always bring some goodies with them to the …

Hot Wheels Car Culture Cargo Carriers is hitting Walmart. Here is your Brickseek link.

Keep you eyes open, and your brickseek link up, because Walmarts are getting Car Culture Cargo Carriers. https://www.instagram.com/p/BgPKa6slL1l/?taken-by=thelamleygroup Here is the link to the inventory checker: Car Culture at Walmart These are going fast, especially - and not surprisingly - the C10 Skyline, so be ready.  Or make it really easy on yourself and order …

The Gulf Camaro fits in well with this RLC Bundle full of iconic decos.

BRE, Gulf, and Mooneyes.  If you had to rank the most recognizable and popular ongoing decos in today's Hot Wheels, these might be the three chosen (with Advan being the fourth). And all three are in the RLC Car Culture Bundle.  Sure, the BRE 510 was most likely the main the reason the Bundle sold …

So did all the HW Cars & Donuts end up at this Target? Here is what it tells me.

Instagram user @piper_1172 posted this interesting pic taken at Target today: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgG76xEA-xu/?taken-by=piper_1172 Quite a sight, right?  Here is what it tells me: There are a few collectors who will have their pick of what Cars & Donuts they want. This will cause an unnecessary flurry of activity among collectors. Most importantly, there are a TON …

Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set

I've decided to move from only hyping JDM to only hyping Gassers.  At least for this minute.  Don't expect anything but Gassers here on Lamley from here on out.  Until the next post, but still.  Lamley only hypes Gassers.  They knock my socks off. And since I do, you can imagine how excited I was …

Don’t call it hype. The Hot Wheels RLC Bundle BRE 510 is a gem.

It is most certainly a phenomenon.  Not entirely explainable, but then again most phenomena aren't. But the BRE 510 is a thing.  It might create eye rolls from some, but there is no denying the two Hot Wheels 510's released with Brock Racing Enterprises racing livery are legendary Hot Wheels models. I have told their …

Rollin’ in my SVO. Mustang enters the Hot Wheels Car Culture world in style, yo.

The upcoming RLC Car Culture set is going to be a hit.  I don't think anyone disputes that. Adding a sixth car to each 2017 Car Culture assortment is a brilliant idea, and it is equally well-executed.  Each car fits its mix. My guess is the BRE 510 will be the most sought-after model of …

The Ford Transit Supervan returns to its roots in Car Culture Cargo Carriers

It was my favorite Hot Wheels release of 2015.  Not only because of the execution, but because of the choice.  Hot Wheels decided to do the Ford Transit Supervan, a wild meshing of a Ford Transit and GT40 that produced one of the most unique, and coolest, vehicles ever done.  It also is the subject …

The Hot Wheels Honda Odyssey goes more stock for Car Culture Cargo Carriers. Or does it?

It was such an odd - yet compelling - choice for Hot Wheels to do a Honda Odyssey.  The reaction was predictably mixed when the word got out that Hot Wheels was going to do an Odyssey.  The company of raked Camaros and slammed hot rods was going to put the ultimate grocery getter on …
