Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

With all the variations there will be no shortage of square bodies to collect. They remind me of the Tomicas that I collect. Very high quality and detail...such as opening doors and hood. Tomica makes the JLs I believe.

That's a tough one to find. I still haven't seen any in stores around here. I bought a case of the set online months ago, though, so at least I have that one.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

Back in September they posted this pic of 3D printed prototypes covering the various grille styles, body configurations and suspension heights, so those 4 coming out this summer look to be just the beginning for Auto World.

I remember that. I just don't keep up with them like I used to. Looking forward to seeing what all AutoWorld brings out.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

They are in stores. You can buy them all day long on Ebay for e$tra. I only have a few. I don't really care for many of the versions. I'd like to do some customs but not after paying so much. I wish they'd do some normal paint jobs, like all one color

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

The only current Hot Wheels release is the yellow truck in the Wal-Mart exclusive American Pickup series. These trucks always get scooped up quickly, but this one is an even faster mover since it has a metal base. Customizers are going crazy over it and for only $2.14 at retail.

You might get lucky and find the display case with its '83 Silverado in a store somewhere, though I've never seen it in stores. I bought mine off of Amazon where you can still find them for less than retail.

Matchbox has a really nice new release of its Blazer casting currently in stores. I've been working on collecting these lately and the newest one is one of the best looking of the bunch.

The Maisto Tow & Go set is still popping up in stores too. I just found one last week at Wal-Mart.

Hot Wheels will have another mainline '83 Silverado out later this year in the HW Art Cars series.

Then you have the first Auto World squares coming out this summer and I've seen a rumor of them having a K5 release by the end of the year. Greenlight is supposedly going to release a Fall Guy truck as well.

They're out there. And they're coming. If you really want to find them, though, you have to be diligent in your searching for them because they're all hot properties right now.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I picked up a second one of these along with the rest of the ten truck set. I also got a second '62 from the set.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I have stumbled onto the '67 and the '62 at the store, but no '83 so far. I got that MB Blazer, too. I always like theirs and HW. I remember when they came out and I wasn't necessarily collection back then. That was when I was out buying for my son and back looking at toys again as an adult. I started buying 'extras'
