I was out in rural Utah earlier this week. I had a minute so I decided to wander into a Family Dollar, one of the only markets in this very small town. I was happy to see the pegs full, and even happier, but a little baffled to find some Zamacs. I documented the find: … Continue reading The Hot Wheels Walmart Zamacs seem to be showing up all over the place.
Lamley Reader Sam (@samichs on IG) shared this find with me today, and I thought I would pass it on in case you haven't seen it: Hot Wheels does a "HW Exotics" 5-pack every year, and here is the 2019 offering. Pagani to Lambo x2 to Lotus to Aston Martin. Ain't bad, right? Thanks Sam … Continue reading Check out the new Hot Wheels Exotics 5-pack
I've already showcased the three Supers I found in one bin, which was surely the find highlight of the week. But I think I was more excited about finding the the Fast & Furious Premium models. Nonetheless, I documented a lot of it, and that is what the Lamley Extras Channel is for. Some super … Continue reading Last week’s finds: Old Zamacs, a grocery shipper, Fast & Furious, and some Supers.
I think it is pretty obvious I don't have the luck I used to have. Maybe more collectors in these here parts, definitely a large decrease in store visits, and who knows whatever else. I will always enjoy the random Hot Wheels Super TH find. A few years ago I did the Super TH Challenge, … Continue reading A week of finds: Started weak, ended $uper strong.
Yeah, that title is accurate. A friend called to tell me he was ready to go through a fresh shipper at a nearby Smith's (Utah's Kroger store), so I came by. We did pretty well, but this darn snowman wanted all the attention, and he couldn't stop talking about one scatalogical topic. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0l9jJj2rW8
Hey it's my blog, so I can celebrate here if I want to. I just found my first 2018 Super Treasure Hunt in the wild. Hooray for me. I have always argued that the best thing about Supers is finding them, randomly. Many love the brickseek-watching, overnight-raiding, early door warming no-holds-barred pursuit of Supers, and … Continue reading My Super Treasure Hunt Drought is over.
The holiday season really is a nice time to go hunting. One store, and some great finds. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDaUUPPg2qo
You hit the pegs. Are they full? Cards crisp? Yes? Then look to see what treasure might be there. Cards soft? All kinds of mixes represented? Spidey cars mixed in? Move on. Check the premium pegs. Check the Matchbox pegs. Auto World if they are there. Hidden dump bin? Shipper? Clear? Ok, finish with the … Continue reading Searching for gems in the Hot Wheels 9-packs
I know. Whhaaaaaaaaaaa. I have nothing to complain about. But how, when, and where someone finds a Super is always interesting, and that includes what kind of luck I might have. I don't hunt like I used to, and things have changed in my area quite a bit. The hunt is quite the racket. But … Continue reading I don’t know what December will bring, but so far this is my only Hot Wheels Super TH find in 2018
Organization Day! The holidays are approaching, and the time has come for my final diecast donation to my local children's hospital. The cases have accumulated and they need to go to their new home. That means digging into the storage unit and getting them delivered. It also means making space. My storage unit gets out … Continue reading Digging for Hot Wheels Treasure in a mess of a storage unit.
