I knew this was going to be a photogenic casting, but WOW. I did minimal color edits to these; that’s how incredible to colors are here. The Spectraflame blue is perfect. Especially matched with the orange track colored base. Add in the shadow-chrome skull / engine / interior? And RedLine striped the Real Riders? Game…
January seemed to be the time when LaLD’s finest seemed to be on a spring cleaning spree. And I capitalized, gleefully!
Another swap facilitated by the Cheras Hot Wheels Collectors, the Majorette McLaren 675LT, now with the Hot Wheels Euro Style mesh Real Riders.
My favorite version of my favorite Hot Wheels casting. Trans Am livery, road racing stance, Real Riders, Metal/Metal. Metal!
I made a promise about 4 years ago that I wouldn’t buy any more Hot Wheels or diecasts, unless they were chases or treasure hunts, if I got an actual car I would enjoy. That car ended up being my mostly-trusty Miata. It’s been a solid year since I last bought a Hot Wheels, not counting the Yellow Submarine I bought…
No, they’re not diecast, but everyone here loves LEGOs right? Picked these up at TRU last night. Apparently the McLaren wasn’t even supposed to be on the shelves for another week or two. The manager was kind enough to override the computer though since they had already stocked them on the display.
I finally added some detailing to this beauty. I like her much more now.
The VW wagon is not definitely up for trade. I’m still debating on that one. But the right offer might temp me to part with it since it doesn’t necessarily fit with my collection.
Got this trio from a guy on Reddit. The Matchbox Road Mauler was an extra he threw in for free! The Unimog and Peterbilt 353 dump truck are from a ‘90s Hot Wheels Real Riders series.
Game over folks. I’m calling it now. Your 2017 Hot Wheels cast of the year.
Found this Stuttgart beauty at a departmental store in town. Surprised to see it there among the other Track Day cars (mostly Chevelles and Porsche 935s). I am yet to see the Datsuns for myself but scalpers are on the rise here in Singapore too, so if I do see one in the wild, I’ll buy it. If I don’t, I won’t be…
A couple of weeks ago, a very good friend that was spending a weekend hiking in the Hocking Hills of SE Ohio tagged me on this Instagram post from an antique store.
Yes, I know it’s Friday, but I found these yesterday!!!!!!
My dry spell is finally over, and fellas, I’m drowning. After a crappy start to the morning at the office, I struck gold at Target. The Hunt for the precious has come to a victorious end!!!!
Two of my latest finds have been Hot Wheels metal/metal with real riders.
Hello fellow LaLDers! This here is my latest custom. I really like the way it came out. I polished the body and powder painted it translucent grape. I swapped some Real Riders from a Ford Van onto it. It’s called the Purple People Eater because 1. It’s purple and 2. All of those annoying mustang memes about guys doing…
I have to say this is my best flea-market find so far! The Hot Wheels booth I always go check out has some pretty great stuff. I’ve found all kinds of first editions there that I didn’t have. But this takes the cake! Ever since I found out last year that HW made this car I’ve been hoping to find one. If you look on…
Been wanting this car for a long time and now I got it for a good price. Probably because of a small scratch on the hood and out of package.
I decided to free my error Super-duper-bird. Turns out it’s better out of the box!
Considering information from StingrayJake, AlienProbe, jedimario, Camshaft Chris: Skyline Fanboy - Now with more Panther! and with some help from Auto World... I present the GT40 that was actually featured on Car and Driver - June 1965.
