Multipack Repacks

Came across about 10 clearly repackaged HW 9 packs at a Walmart this weekend. These weren’t quite the normal repacked returns, however. Typically when these are spotted the one or two good things are removed, and some random crap thrown in…maybe HWs, maybe beat up Maistos, maybe some other garbage, sometimes the…

Goodwill Hawl!

I’ve read numerous stories about folks here finding good stuff at thrift stores…but it never really happened to me until recently. I’ve been hitting up goodwills and such a lot lately, searching for vinyl records (my current obsession) and I am starting to find diecasts…maybe just because I’m frequenting them more.…

Holy Grail Hawl!

I’ve been a big fan of the MBX National Parks & Forest Service series vehicles for the last couple of years, and have managed (with some degree of difficulty) to obtain all the various models and variations of both series, and also some related vehicles that don’t quite fit in with the series but are accepted by…

Maisto Find

Found this Maisto International Durastar Flatbed with VW Beetle Cabriolet recently, and couldn’t resist. Somebody else here posted one of these sets the other day, and made the argument that the International wasn’t a good representation. I would mostly agree, but I think in this example its cartoonisheness is not…

M2 VW Double Cabs

I was lucky enough to find all the regular VW Double Cabs (No Chases, sadly). I was able to find doubles of most of them, but only opened a few of the doubles. I noticed that some of them were very similar to other M2 VW releases that I own, so here are a couple that stood out to me. And if anyone has a chase tow…

K-Day Mail In 55 Corvette

I’ve yet to attend a K-Day, and likely never will, but thankfully the two or three remaining K-Marts near me have a habit of putting everything out in the days before or following the K-Day events. The most recent two I was able to find the exclusives without any issues, and the last one yielded a number of goodies…

New Hot Wheels Honda S2000 

Found this in a 9 pack yesterday. I knew it was coming out, and as far as I know, it is a multi-pack exclusive. I haven’t seen anything about it being a mainline release yet, so keep your eye on those 9 packs. The pack also came with a new multipack Maverick in a nice flat white with some graphics, I’m looking forward…

Attic Finds! 

I’ve been a collector all my life, and have managed to hold onto the vast majority of the cars I had as a kid. Over the last few years, I’ve managed to find most of them and integrate them into my collection, but I knew there was some that I never found. After I moved into my house 15 years ago, my parents somewhat…

Lunchtime Errors Hawl

Went up to a nearby but out of the way supermarket on my lunch break today. I try to get to this particular place every month or so, because it has paid off with Treasure Hunts and Errors on more than a couple occasions. I had a feeling today was a good day to head up there, and while I didn’t find any hunts (trying…

T-Hunt Racing

A few weeks ago, in an out of the way, old style 5&10 store near my office, I found a recently pegged older HW case hanging. Amid the cards was a lovely 70 Plymouth Superbird STH! I long ago gave up on finding one of these in the wild. It was liberated the minute I got it back to my office, and what struck me funny…
