Time to choose your Best & Worst HW Super TH of 2021.
Lamley Awards Poll: What was the BEST & WORST Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt in 2020?
The 2020 Lamley Awards are here. Time for you to vote!
This Hot Wheels Factory Sealed Set has a story to tell. Maybe the damaged cards, including that Super TH, can unravel the mystery.
Oh, the stories this case could tell.
2020 so far has been a bummer. Unless you are talking about Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunts
Has this run of 2020 Super Treasure Hunts been the best ever? I think you can make the argument that it has. Of course we like what we like, so there is no way to prove it, but dang the first 8 Supers of 2020, marking 25 years of Treasure Hunts, have been stellar. I …

Showcase: Hot Wheels 2020 Batch G Highlights & a Super Treasure Hunt first
I went live on the Lamley YouTube Channel to open what I consider the highlights of the Hot Wheels 2020 G Case. The Porsches are cool, and I am always excited when another Greenwood hits, but the sure highlight is the pair of Nissan GT-R models. I will give the pair the proper treatment, but …

Lamley Daily: 2020 Hot Wheels Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) Super Treasure Hunt
Model: Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) Release: 2020 Super Treasure Hunt (Mix A) Where to get it: I just found one this week at Dollar General, so they are still out there. But ebay is an option. Why it is in the collection: Because it is the new R32 casting, and I don’t see a time …

Some Supers just stand out more than others. That is the case with the ’69 Corvette Racer.
Remember when collectors were complaining that most of the Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunts were red? It was true. A lot of them were. Things have changed a bit. Hot Wheels introduced a new spectraflame paint for Supers this year, and not only does it look good, but it has allowed for more colors. Browns …

2018 was a dry year for finding Supers. 2019 has been the opposite.
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 …

Finding another Super in a rural honey hole.
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. …

A week of finds: Started weak, ended $uper strong.
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, …

Preview: The Hot Wheels 2018 RLC Exclusive Super Treasure Hunt Set hits January 15th. here is a look.
The Hot Wheels 50th celebration has bled into 2019, but I don't think anyone will complain. On January 15h, the RLC Exclusive Super TH set will be made available for purchase to RLC Members. It will be priced at $199 and like every year produced in low numbers. Mattel has done this set with special …

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels Nissan Skyline R34 Super TH
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. We are always wondering about what is next, but the truth is mixes of all sorts are hitting during the holidays. So maybe there is an R34 waiting for you …

I don’t know what December will bring, but so far this is my only Hot Wheels Super TH find in 2018
I know. Whhaaaaaaaaaaa. I have nothing to complain about. But how, when, and where someone finds a Super is always interesting, and that includes what kind of luck I might have. I don't hunt like I used to, and things have changed in my area quite a bit. The hunt is quite the racket. But …

A Super with no paint and no wheels is still a Super if Hot Wheels says it is.
Hot Wheels Designer Manson Cheung dropped this on Instagram today: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqFTyRaFI36/ You have to look closely, but in front of the rear hover wheels is the infamous "TH" signifying this is a Super Treasure Hunt. It will be out later in 2019, and it has stirred quite the reaction. First off, to some of you, …

Guess what? Super Treasure Hunts are hard to find. And that is how it should be.
Yesterday I walked into a rural grocery store and walked by the seasonal section. I like the seasonal section in this store. There are always Hot Wheels. And yesterday was no exception. A fresh 4-sided shipper and a small dump bin. And a little bit further down, this: An unopened basic shipper! These moments don't …

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels Honda Civic Super Treasure Hunt & other 2019 A Case highlights
Hot Wheels A Cases can be a little mixed. Typically a couple of exciting new models will debut, swimming in a sea of models from the previous year. That is definitely what is happening with the 2019 A Case. Two big debuts - R32 Skyline & Unimog - with a ton of Q Case models. …

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels 2018 P Case Ford Escort RS1600 Super TH
14 of the 15 Supers (plus the bonus Ultimate Chase) have now been officially released. Go through them, and I think it would be hard to say it HASN'T been a great year for Supers. The time to review them all, and pick a best, will be here soon. But collectively, they are great. The …

Super Showcase: Hot Wheels Audi RS 6 Avant Super TH
The New Model would have been enough. It is superb. Bonus that it debuts as a beautiful Super TH as well. Photos coming. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wdlWMn5SuE
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. Until today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yH27FBnJKw
Super Showcase: 2018 Hot Wheels ’52 Chevy Super Treasure Hunt
The combination of being a little diecasted out after Dallas and a two-day work added up to a two-day break. But with all the cool stuff coming, it is time to ramp it up. Starting with a tremendous Super Treasure Hunt coming in the Hot Wheels J Case. Mattel sent one over for a preview, …

You need to be lucky to find a HW Super, and even more lucky to find this card variation.
I finally got the Hot Wheels H Case Super Showcase up on the YouTube Channel. There was a delay this time, and for good reason. Mattel sends the Supers over for me to preview for you, but the card art on the ZL1 Camaro they sent from the H Case looked different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG4cMVVumRg Obviously the …

I love rural grocery store finds.
I have a honey hole. Two great finds at the same rural store, off the beaten path, 16 months apart. And really nice Supers at that. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVnl2FivP8M
Hot Wheels’ 2018 Super streak continues with the Indy 500 Oval Super TH
It's been a good year for Supers Treasure Hunts. The ever-popular Datsun 620 started it off, and since then we've been on a hot streak. But I think I have said that with every Super Showcase I have done this year. If someone showed me a list of the first five Supers of 2018, I …

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. Supers don't have to be great castings, nor do they have to look good. The most important distinction a Super needs is that it is a Super. So while I enjoy doing the Best and Worst polls at the end …
