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…

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.

The State of the US Diecast market

With the possibly impending complete closure of Toys R Us retail operations in the US, and the slow downward spiral of Kmart, I feel now may be a good time to look at and discuss the diecast market here in the US.

Check your local TRU, guys...

...because, apparently, Majorette Series 3 is hitting stores (that aren’t currently in the middle of going out of business sales), including the US debut of the Vision Gran Turismo series.

Who here is ready for K-Day?

I know I am! I know not everyone has a Kmart near them, and for those of you who don’t, but were able to order a case (or 2...or more) online, this post could help you, too.

Need For Speed Payback AllDrive is coming...

Ghost Games announced today that online free roam will be coming with the next update, which will be rolled out tomorrow.

And here are the K-Day FTMs...

...First To Markets, that is.

M2 should expand their Auto-Japan line... M2 should expand their Auto-Japan line...

...don’t get me wrong, their Nissans and Datsuns are great, but they’re only the tip of the iceberg with vintage Japanese metal, both domestic and export models.

Closure Alert: More Sears and Kmarts closing this spring.

It was announced today that over 100 more Sears and Kmart locations will be closing this spring.

The 'Legal To Import To The US' car calendar 2018

It’s 2018, which means a new group of cars will be legal for import into the US this year.

Walmart HW Alert

...still no D case models at my local Walmart, but they DID stock up on the new Star Wars cars (thankfully the majority of the bin was still mainlines, though they’re C ones), and on top of that, the new 9 car Gift Packs are in.

D Case Alert!

If you haven’t hit up your local Target lately, I’d suggest getting over there ASAP, because they’re getting D cases in.

Some recent looks at what's to come...

As we all know, 2017 has been a pretty good year for diecast, and 2018 is already looking to be one of the best we’ve had in recent memory.

Any other Oppos on here playing Need For Speed Payback?

I picked up the game on day one (Deluxe Edition, that is), and have played through the story already. So, lately I’ve just been working on some project cars for fun.

K-Day should be interesting this time around... (UPDATE with ABB case information) K-Day should be interesting this time around... (UPDATE with ABB case information)

The Lamley Group posted up a K-Day case unboxing, and it’s an interesting one...

Hidden Gems and Oddities on Goo-Net Exchange Hidden Gems and Oddities on Goo-Net Exchange

I’m sure you all know of the many different kinds of cars in Japan that can be found on Goo-Net Exchange, but how about some of the oddities and hidden gems that can be found on the site when you look at listings marked ‘Other’.
