The End of an Era: More Kmart closures The End of an Era: More Kmart closures

It’s another sad day for Hot Wheels collectors today, as another wave of Kmart and Sears locations have been announced to be closing as part of announcing they will be filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

JDM lovers, get your wallets ready. JDM haters...beware.

There is SO much more on the horizon. FK8 Type-R, NA Miata, Z32 300ZX, Gulf Laurel, R30 Super Silhouette, S14 240SX, and some more scrumptious City Turbo II.

So, T-Hunted has more pics of some 2019 A Case models, this time on short cards. I’ve noticed some interesting things:

That’s right, we’ve got a double whammy of HW news today.

The '19s are coming... The '19s are coming...

...and T-Hunted really has the edge on things. Today, they posted pics of six upcoming 2019 models that will appear in the A and B cases.

Matchbox is doing a phenomenal job with the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World licensing.

This was shared by The Lamley Group earlier today. This (aside from the Unimog, which was already out and is part of Series 2) is most of Series 3.

BRE fans, get ready. BRE fans, get ready.

Get your 510s and Zs ready. Because Greenlight is getting ready to introduce the perfect companion for them...

This is mainly for those who missed last night’s presentation and those who simply want to get a better look at what’s coming.

Greenlight is introducing their first ever 1:64 scale wheel and tire packs. They’ve done wheel and tire sets for 1:18 scale cars before, but this is their first attempt at the 1:64 scale.

Introducing more versatility for your Greenlight flatbed trailers... Introducing more versatility for your Greenlight flatbed trailers...

Seems Greenlight is further expanding their lineup...which already includes large International trucks, licensed towable camper trailers, heavy duty pickups, TV and movie cars/trucks, and licensed police vehicles...to include farm equipment!

On a much more positive note...

Matchbox’s Custom Contest is back, and the prize for the top 15 entries this year is a raw, disassembled Nissan Xterra!

Seems like today's Target Collector's Experience was more often a disaster than a success...

Judging by the responses to this post on The Lamley Group’s Instagram, most collectors went to Target today and had an experience that was far from what they expected.

It's all in the details...

Seems the specific details of this Saturday’s Collector Experience at Target are out, and the apparent confusion of whether it starts at 10am or 11am is now solved.

Official: Hot Wheels Collector's Event moves to Target!

No longer will collectors need to worry if their local store will be in business long enough to hold a Collector’s Day event.

Everyone knows that there’s a new version of the popular F1 GTR casting in this year’s Gran Turismo series, but there’s another one coming...

Hunting Tip: HW J Case and Avengers series now at Walmart

Went out shopping today and decided to look at what my local Walmart had for Hot Wheels. Main area and the bin were the same ol’ stuff that I saw the last few times I was there.

HW Hunting Tip: Three more stores that could be great places to look. HW Hunting Tip: Three more stores that could be great places to look.

Went out today, because I had to get a new headset for my XB1 (the speakers in my TB Ear Force XO One started to go on me, the volume (literally) pops from low, to none, to loud at random...had the headset for nearly three years...so I’m now the proud owner of a new Ear Force Recon 50X).

Matchbox C Case Power Grabs showing up at Walmart.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but new Power Grabs are hitting Walmart. This time, it’s the 2018 C case models, which include three new castings: the ‘33 Plymouth PC Sedan, the Jeep Wagoneer, and the slightly lackluster ‘17 Honda Civic, along with the retooled VW Beetle, Speedy Xpress Ford Cargo Van, new…

GT4 European Series is on YT right now. GT4 European Series is on YT right now.

Season opener from Belgium, first race. Pretty awesome being able to watch live races on YouTube.

Tip: Matchbox 2018 B Case and Hot Wheels 2018 G Case hitting Walmart locations now.

I’ve been to three Walmart locations in the last two days, and I’ve come across some great stuff at two of them. The first, obviously being Cargo Carriers. Those have been hitting both Walmart and Target.
