I've already discussed the merits of collecting Kyosho Euro models, so now it is time to dig into JDM. The only thing is I barely scratch the surface. While it appears Kyosho is pulling way back on 1/64, there are still a kajillion JDM models to pursue. Here are mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqnuHhvMTms And in case you … Continue reading Why you should collect 1/64 Kyosho: JDM
Sometimes there are differences, sometimes there aren't. There were a few differences this time between the International and US releases of the Hot Wheels G Case, mainly that the Regular Treasure Hunt was in one. And this is a TH worth finding. Enjoy the Unboxings: International: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQMO3lYfDSI US: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyreQBM--4g
I totally missed this one when the Hot Wheels H Case was released. I can be excused though, considering the silhouette of this model looks like a generic Hot Wheels. Totally flat, no place for a driver, narrow in the middle. But this is a licensed car, and a very cool one at that. It … Continue reading It might look unlicensed, but the Hot Wheels Roborace Robocar certainly isn’t.
So I've lost count of what mix this is. It's N, but Matchbox didn't start at A in 2019, so this is maybe the 5th or 6th? Nonetheless it's a good case, so let's go through it. Wheel Collectors got their shipment yesterday, and gave us a quick vid and photos of the contents, so … Continue reading Case Report: Matchbox 2019 N Case
At least I got it posted before Hot Wheels Nationals. Last October, I held another Lamley DLM Party at the Hot Wheels Convention in Los Angeles. The premise is simple. Bring something significant to open (RLC, Convention Model, Super), open it, get a ticket, and possibly win a prize. Quite a few folks came, and … Continue reading It took awhile, but here is the footage from the Lamley DLM Party at the 2018 Hot Wheels Convention.
It just gets better with age. Hot Wheels Vintage Racing is over 8 years old now, and it has finally become to collectors what Mattel thought it would years ago. Back then were a few must-haves for some collectors, but the set gathered dust in stores for the most part. But as Hot Wheels Collectors' … Continue reading Still one of the best things Hot Wheels has ever done: A quick run through HW Vintage Racing.
There are many new members to the RLC this year. For good reason. It's going to be a stellar year. Moving past all the bumps and bruises the RLC and its site have been through - and dragging us reluctantly along - it is nice to see the Club still exists. There are still a … Continue reading Preview: The stunning Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Urban Outlaw Porsche 964
Let's just say if I wasn't a blogger and YouTuber, I probably wouldn't have picked up this entire set. The art is incredible, but as a DLMer art is not a huge factor in what I bring home. But I can say I would have brought home the Brat, no matter what. The Subaru Brat … Continue reading Showcase: Hot Wheels Baja Racing Trucks set, and a Subaru Brat walk-through.
They are hitting Targets now, and Walmarts soon. Here is a look at the International G Case, along with the best of the case, and that cool Mustang Super: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQMO3lYfDSI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuwRxVuxH74
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.
