The holidays means the product keeps on coming. It seems the last three Hot Wheels Mixes have dropped right on top of each other. I have some unboxings coming up, but since Wheel Collectors got the D Case, and several of you have found D Case models in store, I thought I would show some … Continue reading Showcase: Hot Wheels 2019 D Case Highlights
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
D Cases are showing, but I still wanted to share my pics of the R34 Skyline Super Treasure Hunt. And come on let's be honest.

Kmart Collector Day is this Saturday. I think it was supposed to be last month, as that was typically the month of the last KDay of the year. I also assume that because this is a B Case, and the first-to-market C Case cars have already been seen. Still, opening a Kmart case is always … Continue reading Unboxing: Hot Wheels Kmart 36-count ADB Case

Matchbox has needed to take on a classic 911. I have said for years that the original 911/912 is a Matchbox no-brainer, but when talking to the design team I always got a little pushback. The reason? Porsche overkill. It's true. We have seen a lot of Porsches in 1/64 lately. But unlike a few … Continue reading Unboxing: Matchbox 2019 B Case
The nerdiest of nerdy collecting: looking for cool stuff in Hot Wheels 9-packs. It has paid off several times. The exclusives, the occasional error, and wheel variations. Those are what I look for, and I've had some pretty legendary finds. Twice I've found wheel variations that were never reported found elsewhere. I'll have to share … Continue reading Finding MORE gems in Hot Wheels 9-packs
