Two days before the GameStop event, I thought all was in order. GameStop told me the 36-count case I bought online a few days prior was on its way. Then UPS, via their app, told me the same thing. Thursday would be the day, two days before the event. The app mentioned it was in … Continue reading UPS lost my GameStop case.

I say this because many times I will hear comments about how I … Continue reading Preview: There is more to the Hot Wheels R34 Skyline & ‘62 Chevy Pickup Convention Exclusives than you might think.
Seriously, I can't tell you why. I can't. It goes against all that I have proclaimed with my collection. But I love the Hot Wheels Fast & Furious '67 Off-Road Camaro.

The Fast & Furious Off-Road might be the raddest.
