If you go out at night, raiding the pallets for new cases of Hot Wheels, I would say luck is not as big a factor. More power to you, honestly. If that is how you want to spend your nights, go for it. For the rest of us, finding a Super is about luck, or … Continue reading 2018 was a dry year for finding Supers. 2019 has been the opposite.
I was surprised to see this 6-model set in a nearby Walmart today. I had no idea it was hitting. I bought the whole set to feature, but would have left a few if that wasn't the case. The no-brainer? The BRAT of course. I turned on my camera when I found the set. Enjoy: … Continue reading A new Walmart-exclusive set from Hot Wheels dropped.
This grocery store has been fruitful. I don't find Supers like I used to, mainly because I don't travel as much as I used to. It just means I don't have nearly the number of opportunities to find treasure. But it just makes the times I do that much more fun. And I found another. … Continue reading Finding another Super in a rural honey hole.
Note I didn't capitalize "treasure". Such a good phrase, but too much Treasure Hunt connotation. I wasn't looking for Treasure Hunts, I was looking for whatever interesting gem I could find. This hardware store in a rural town I pass through every couple of weeks has a large stash of older Hot Wheels that is … Continue reading This hardware store keeps unveiling old Hot Wheels. Time to dig for treasure.
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.
