I know someone who recently did a some handyman work for a Mattel employee. As an extra token of appreciation for the work, the employee let the handyman pick a few Hot Wheels that were all labeled “Item Not For Resale” where the UPC should be. Does this add anything to the desirability or value?
I’ve lived in Indiana (almost) my whole life, and this year was my first Indy 500. We went to both Legends Day on Saturday and the race on Sunday. I managed to pick up a few diecast goodies on Saturday and meet a legend.
I found this Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe at a flea market in Louisville a few weeks ago. First time I had ever seen a Johnny Lightning Kentucky Derby car. Has a nice metallic red paint and rubber tires. The card says 1 of 1500, but the sticker on the bottom of the car indicates 69 of 1350. 🤔
Stopped by a couple of Walmarts this morning since I was off work today and found a few goodies.
I’ve seen swapped cars at Walmart, but I didn’t realize people actually create counterfeit errors. Geez!
I dropped into Target to check the pegs after work, and I found the whole Circuit Legends set. I had to buy one extra care, because I thought it was a cool error. Definitely not repackaged or anything.
A local auction company had several lots of Hot Wheels and other diecast recently. I bid on a several lots and came away with three of them. There was quite a mix of cars. Unfortunately, some of them have rough cards or discolored blisters.
When I was there last weekend, it was obvious they weren’t restocking any diecast. I may pop in today just to check again or pick up some LEGO Speed Champions sets if they’re on sale.
Will the scalper who took all the Fast & Furious Skylines please return them to the bin, please?
After seeing other folks post about the F&F cars showing up at their Walmart, I stopped in this morning to take a look. They had moved the dump bin to a weird location off the main isle, so that may be why it was still packed to the gills with F&F cars. There were plenty of each – including the Skyline. I picked up a…
I saw this announced on FB. Sales just started at noon EDT today. Limited to 750 pieces.
Stopped by TRU on the way home from work and found few goodies. I don’t watch Supernatural, but I like these castings. The toolbox in the back of the truck is a nice touch. There’s some Supernatural text on the trailer, but I think these castings are pretty generic otherwise.
My Datsun Bluebird 510 arrived today. This is the first KDays collector car I’ve gone after. Very impressive too. These are already going for $50+ on the bay, but I’m keeping mine :)
First, let me say my K-Day was a success. I was lucky enough to get a case to open. It had all 4 Kmart exclusives plus a So Plowed Treasure Hunt. Not my favorite casting by any means, but it’s still a TH. I pulled an extra set of the Kmart exclusives if anyone wants to HWEP. I also got several other cars I hoped for +…
I just discovered Massdrop recently. Here’s the concept: several people commit to purchase as a group, so the manufacturer drops the price of each item. Right now, they have an AUTOart deal with several cars available below retail price. You have to add the Pagani to your cart to see all the cars with associated…
Enginerrrrrrrrr was liquidating some of his collection on eBay, so I picked up a few things. Is it possible to over HAWL? I didn’t think so!
Popped into Walmart this morning and found a whole dump bin full of these 50th Anniversary Camaros. The card art and variety of castings/colors is nice. The tan ‘67 Camaro even has an opening hood. Not bad for $0.94!
