Item Not For Resale

Item Not For Resale

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?

Indy 500 HAWL

Indy 500 HAWL

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.

In the first souvenir tent, I snagged the event car and Mario Andretti car. I also picked up the cars for my favorite overall driver (Fernando Alonso) and my favorite IndyCar...

Derby Day

Derby Day

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.

Auction HAWL

Auction HAWL

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.

There were some NASCAR items mixed in, but I don’t collect those. There were several Hot Wheels fantasy castings that don’t interest me either. If anyone is...

Cool Error

Cool Error

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.

AUTOart Deal

AUTOart Deal

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 prices. Here’s a sample of some of the cars available.

Bitchin' Camaros

Bitchin' Camaros

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!

Error - Worth Anything?

Error - Worth Anything?

Found this at Target today. Completely missing the front wheels, and the package is sealed. Are errors like this worth anything?

Walmart HAWL

Walmart HAWL

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 full set for myself. I’m happy to go back and get additional sets if anyone...

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.

I HAWLed

I HAWLed

I heard about these awesome new Hitch & Tows from wtffor on YouTube, and I found them at Target this morning. They only had one of each.

I also found a new Matchbox Exotic 5-pack at Walmart. This is the first time I’ve seen this package, and the car selection is pretty nice: Shelby Cobra, Ford GT, Lotus Evora, Porsche 911, and Corvette. The tampos on the Lotus are pretty cool - there’s a...
