Just one shot of the Ford Bronco (shod with Real Riders) I picked up over the weekend at a garage sale. Not for sale or trade but after I looked on eBay to see what these go for, I may change my mind!
No supers found at our location. There were four large boxes opened. For anyone who didn’t have a chance to make it out this morning I grabbed an extra KDay Bronco, Corvette, Subaru, Gasser, white Elmiraj, and both exclusive color Firebirds.
I stumbled upon a diecast/Hot Wheels show at a local flea market yesterday on my way home from an errand. First time I’ve ever been to a dedicated show like this and there were literally tens of thousands of cars in the room. A bit overwhelming but I pressed on. I passed over most of the local resellers with their…
I’m changing my display setup a bit and before I throw these on eBay wanted to see if there was any interest here. I’m going to be selling three or four of my Bertby’s. Espresso wood finish, all 10 glass shelves, and all mounting hardware included. They can be safely shipped. Probably would be asking about $150/each…
Don’t know if it is specific to my local TRU or chain wide but Matchbox Supreme Heroes are on clearance at $.98 at my local TRU. They had 1 or 2 of each in the series except the Crown Victoria.
Thanks, Meijer’s! I guess this box didn’t come wth any of the Datsun 510s but cool nonetheless Looking for a Z4 STH in trade if anyone is interested, also a Beatles series Kool Kombi and Yellow Submarine.
I’ve never been to a flea market before. I was passing through a more rural area over the weekend and sure enough, came across an open market with tons of - erm - junk. This was literally a bunch of stuff in a big barn in varying degrees of organization, including lots of toys and diecasts. Some of them were literally…
Successful lunch hour outing! Never found a ZAMAC in the wild before.
Ran to Target for some last minute Mother’s Day shopping...freshly stocked Retro pegs awaited. Grabbed the VW and the Toyota truck. Also snagged a black DB5, CRX, and a blue NSX that has thus far evaded capture in the wild.
Picked up an extra one of these sets at WM over the weekend. Anyone interested?
This time of year is always when it’s nice to take a step back and look at the year that was. With regard to diecasts, this was my first year delving into the Hot Wheels scene. I strayed from the 1/18 path, where I’ve comfortably been for most of the past decade, in a big way. I went to my first KDay, found my first…
Can’t find my instruction sheet. Can someone post up what I need to do to mail in for the special KDAY car?
I noticed that this excellent storage case has gone down significantly in price. I paid $15/each for these back in August and now the price appears to have gone to less than half that. Just wanted to pass along! I picked up a bunch more at this price.
Less than 24 hours after scoring my first TH in the wild, a chance Wal-Mart visit today resulted in what I’d probably say was my best hawl, ever.
Stopped by Target on a whim this evening (beat sitting in the office)...found a nicely restocked Real Rider collection and a bunch of other cars I’ve been after (especially the blue Brat and the Challenger). The Supra is an extra.
Well, that was fun. I didn’t even know MBX made a Renault Master ambulance!
Snagged my first treasure hunt! There was only one other Corvette treasure hunt and the guy next to me got a Hudson super treasure hunt in his case. Also finally landed a DeLorean Hover Mode!
What else does one do on vacation but frequent local TRU stores?
Anyways, while travelling abroad I’ve found an abundance of 2010 series “Speed Machines” casts. Interesting casts, but none really are for me. Do you want one? After currency exchange, we’re at about $7. Get your requests in now.
Local drugstore had overflowing pegs and a cardboard display box. What better way to kill time while waiting for a scrip to be filled? Much of the stuff was older (sometimes years older) but plenty of newer stuff too. Most of these are going in the trade pile but some may find a home in the collection. Lots of other…
I’m a sucker for old British iron. So when I had the chance to pick up two different race liveried Morris Mini casts, I was quite excited.
