With all the gaga over the ’55 Gasser, don’t forget about the Amazon Hot Legend

Would it surprise you that the '55 Bel Air Gasser isn't in the Hot Wheels Mainline this year?  It isn't.  But it has sure been everywhere else. We know about the Car Meet 5-pack, where it's popularity has spurned a depressing amount of swappers buying the pack, taking the Gasser, replacing it with another model, … Continue reading With all the gaga over the ’55 Gasser, don’t forget about the Amazon Hot Legend

It has the card art, and it has the looks. Will the Selections ’66 Super Nova Gasser follow the path of the Candy Striper?

No. I'm just answering the question in the title right off the bat.  The purple RLC Selections '66 Nova, which arrived at collector's homes this last week, will not garner the same secondary market prices that accompany the Candy Striper '55 Gasser these days. But who cares!?!?! This thing is BEEE-YOOOOUUU-TEEEEE-FULLLLLL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbUTvx0g4E Gasser hype nada. … Continue reading It has the card art, and it has the looks.

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

Why you should collect all the Hot Wheels (licensed) Gassers (and A/FX).

Right out of the gate, I get the argument on the Pass'n Gasser.  It is based on a '37 Ford, and I should have probably given it some love here, but I have always considered it unlicensed.  I might be wrong.  But when you look at the '55 Bel Air, Supernova, and Mercury Cyclone Gassers, … Continue reading Why you should collect all the Hot Wheels (licensed) Gassers (and A/FX).
