A Tale of Two: Hot Wheels Hi-Po Hauler & Ford Econoline Pickup

Would you look at that. Two years ago we had no Hot Wheels Econolines.  Now we have two.  I just wish Hot Wheels would do something other than JDM.  Oh wait. Hot Wheels developed the Econoline for Pop Culture and Car Culture, and it has shown up in both, with a bonus 50th Favorites appearance. … Continue reading A Tale of Two: Hot Wheels Hi-Po Hauler & Ford Econoline Pickup

It has the card art, and it has the looks. Will the Selections ’66 Super Nova Gasser follow the path of the Candy Striper?

No. I'm just answering the question in the title right off the bat.  The purple RLC Selections '66 Nova, which arrived at collector's homes this last week, will not garner the same secondary market prices that accompany the Candy Striper '55 Gasser these days. But who cares!?!?! This thing is BEEE-YOOOOUUU-TEEEEE-FULLLLLL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbUTvx0g4E Gasser hype nada. … Continue reading It has the card art, and it has the looks.

Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set

I've decided to move from only hyping JDM to only hyping Gassers.  At least for this minute.  Don't expect anything but Gassers here on Lamley from here on out.  Until the next post, but still.  Lamley only hypes Gassers.  They knock my socks off. And since I do, you can imagine how excited I was … Continue reading Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set

Don’t call it hype. The Hot Wheels RLC Bundle BRE 510 is a gem.

It is most certainly a phenomenon.  Not entirely explainable, but then again most phenomena aren't.

I have told their … Continue reading Don’t call it hype. The Hot Wheels RLC Bundle BRE 510 is a gem.

It's a hard call.  Keep it in its vintage style packaging, packed nicely in a protective box, with the model beautifully nestled inside.  Or open it, allowing the spectraflame to shine? It isn't even a contest.  Open it.  Which I did, and the Custom T-Bird looks amazing.  You should do the same when the model … Continue reading The Hot Wheels HWC Original 16 Custom T-Bird goes on sale today.
