Unboxing: Hot Wheels 2018 International M Case (with a $uper surprise)

I have been doing Hot Wheels Unboxing Videos for awhile now.  When I can, I like to open both International and US cases, just to see if there are any differences.  Many times there are.  One thing I have never done is pulled a Super Treasure Hunt from an International case.

The HW Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R Super TH highlights a tremendous start to 2018.

Five Supers in.  Not a miss. 620 to Nova to Porsche to Mustang to Kenmeri.
