Been a while since I’ve found any new M2's outside of the Target exclusives. Funny enough, I found these at Target, as they’re starting to carry other M2 product lines outside of their exclusives. I know you guys love hawl posts, so I’ll go back to doing them. Being a hardcore DLM’er, I very rarely show cardboard in my posts nowadays, but I think you guys might like it more and some might even find it more helpful and informative.

The two shown above are the ‘57 Ford Fairlane and ‘68 Pontiac Firebird from Auto Drivers Release 33. I personally like the Auto Drivers series for a couple of reasons. One, they’re only $4 each versus the other lines which run for $6. Two, they have no opening parts. Sounds like a con, but it’s a blessing in disguise. The more opening parts, the more quality issues arise, and you know quality isn’t M2's best trait.

Then I went to Walmart and found some more new M2's, this time, Release 34. I took home only the ‘Cuda, and also snatched a HW Redline Corvette C6R, which I didn’t find in my first go-around, at the same time. The Long Gones were, umm....long gone.

So let’s get crackin’, shall we?

No more cardboard beyond this point.

The Firebird in maroon. This one won me over while I was at the pegs even though I already have another M2 Firebird.

Next, the best of Release 33 in my eyes, the ‘57 Fairlane. Easy want from Day 1.

Then we have the diarrhea-yellow 383 ‘Cuda. I don’t like the color, but I love ‘Cudas. This will go nicely with my fleet, which some of you may have seen on Instagram.

Lastly, the lone Hot Wheels. The C6R is a casting that I should’ve collected more of, back when it was in the mainline. Here’s a shot at redemption.
