3 Down...

3 Down...

Finally found some Japan Historics at Target. And a sweet Redline Chevy Nova wagon at Walgreens. Feels like I’m the last person to even see the JHs in stores. Now just 2 more to go...

New Matchbox Suggestion

New Matchbox Suggestion

Does Matchbox take suggestions?

If so, hey Matchbox, you need to make this! It’s a 1975 Volvo C303 from an article on Truck Yeah/Jalopnik .

With a name like Blipshift, it sounds more like a Hot Wheels fantasy cast. But this would make an awesome MBX!

You Never Forget Your First

You Never Forget Your First

Since it’s been a week of firsts for me here on LaLD, I wanted to share my first and only (so far) Super Treasure Hunt.

About a couple months ago, I took a quick lunch break to Shop-Rite, which I had just recently found out stocked a decent amount of HW. They were older models, but I didn’t mind since it would let me catch up on ones that I’ve missed before. Rummaging through the pegs, my...

My First Post

My First Post

Hi all! Thanks for the authorship, Philip!

I’m new to the site and to the blog-verse. Hopefully, I do the site proud. I stumbled upon LaLD one night a couple of months ago and I’ve been lurking around ever since. I’ve been a Hot Wheels and Matchbox fan ever since I was a little boy, just like everyone on here. But not until the past year have I renewed my passion for collecting and playing with...

New HW Entertainment Series

New HW Entertainment Series

From Hotwheelscollectors.com, here’s a peak at the upcoming Entertainment Series.

Great, I just finished the Euro series, the Japan Historics and am 1 shy of completing the Garage series. I’m still waiting for the Trucks series to show up in stores and also the MBX Land Rover series. At some point, I’d like to get the Gran Turismo series. And now this one. It’s going to be a busy 2nd half of...

Resto Project

Resto Project

Came across this little beauty while organizing some of my older cars. It’s a Matchbox Datsun 280ZX, (c) 1979 Lesney Prod. Might do some paint touch ups and cleaning. Wish I was more handy so I could swap out the wheels, too.

Hour Rule: Matchbox Suggestion #2

Hour Rule: Matchbox Suggestion #2

After watching some reruns of Car Matchmaker, I have my next suggestion for a Matchbox, or any manufacturer for that matter. I just want one!

This is a 1965 Dodge D200 Reformer as customized by ICON 4x4. This is a beauty. Clean, simple awesomeness...

Hour Rule - My Best Hawl

Hour Rule - My Best Hawl

I’ve had a good day here and there in finding some decent cars. But there was this one span of a few days in June that I think I had the best week of hunting.

This first batch was from Walmart and the first time that I’ve seen the Jeep series in stores. I got the white Cherokee Trailhawk and red Wrangler Superlift soon afterwards. Never got the silver Willys or black Hurricane as I didn’t like...

Storage/Display Question

Storage/Display Question

When storing/displaying your collection, what order do you put them in?

Do you do it by make/model? Brand? Manufacturer? Series/set? Vehicle type? Color? Random?

As you’ll see in the pic below, one of my cases is currently broken out by Nissan/Datsun, Honda, Toyota then Mazda. But should I keep the Japan Historics together? Same with Trucks/Gran Turismo/Garage series?

I know it’s personal...

Happy Hunting!

PSA: Gran Turismo Retro series

For anyone tired of not finding the Retro Entertainment GT series, this seller on eBay is selling it for a pretty decent price. Almost same price if you bought it in the store. And free shipping...

Sick Day = Playtime

Sick Day = Playtime

Took a sick day to take care of my son today and we spent some time playing with these Maisto Build-n-Play sets. Got them at Five Below. We also have the hospital but haven’t put that together yet. Saving that for a good behavior treat at some point later.

They’re just cardboard but they go together easily, have a small footprint and they come with one vehicle. Simple, but fun.

The Force Friday

The Force Friday

2 of my favorite things: Star Wars and Hot Wheels.

Sorry, I know these aren’t the typical things that are posted on here. But in honor of the new Rogue One trailer that debuted last night, just thought I’d post a few of these. Too bad Disney Infinity was canceled because they did a great job with these figures. And of course, the Hot Wheels cars are beautifully done. Enjoy!

Matchbox Lamborghini LM002

Finally found this one!

Been searching for this one for a while. Love the matte red paint job. Wish they would utilize this type of paint on more models. Simple tampos, black wheels, well done...

Shot in the dark...

OK, I realize the chances are slim, but does anyone out there in LaLD land have one of these Hot Wheels ‘66 Dodge A100 Dubble Bubble vans and are willing to trade?

I can never seem to find one on eBay so I’m assuming there are limited quantities out there and highly collectible. So I’m also assuming the price might be a little high to acquire one, but I thought I’d take a shot to see if anyone...

Garage Series... Finally!

Garage Series... Finally!

My Walmart finally got these in. Oddly, these were the only 9 on the pegs. Cards were horribly bent but I’m just DLMing them anyway.

GTO, where are you?
