The new year started with a bang. There are more new multi-pack only cars have been found, a new Muscle Mania 5-pack and the “D” case assortments. New Models include: #45 Z-ROD, #127 Muscle Speeder, #130 ’15 Dodge Charger SRT, #245 HW FORMULA SOLAR. The regular Treasure Hunt is the 4Ward Speed and the Super Treasure Hunt is the #189 ’14 Corvette Stingray. Also received the first 2016 Entertainment series from A&J Toys. A somewhat disappointing set with most rehashed Entertainment cars.
The first of the 2016 Pop Culture series were found at Toy’s ‘R’ Us this week. Popular models include the Convoy Custom and Custom Chevy Greenbrier Sports Wagon. If you can’t find them in the store check out A&J Toys for case sales.
A few updates this week added ‘D’ case at mainlines by the mix and are expected to be out by the end of the month. The mainline list has been updated the with ‘C’ case photos. More multi-pack cars have being and I’m sure more are on the way. As for the ‘C’ case. There are four new models which are: #044 Monteracer, #120 Porsche 356A Outlaw, #184 Nissan Fairlady Z, and #149 Dawgzilla. The Treasure Hunts are the Rip Rod for the regular and the super Treasure Hunt is the ’90 Acura NSX.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for collecting. Recently found the Holiday Hot Rods mixed in “B” case mainline mix dump bins at Walmart. We just received the hobby only Entertainment “K” case purchased off eBay but it has been reported that they have been found in Walmart stores in Canada. The last case assortment of HW Road Trippin’ have been appearing on eBay. The good people at A&J Toys sent over the Heritage – Real Riders case. Just found are the first two 2016 gift pack exclusives including new 2016 multi-pack only releases. Mattel even surprised us with the return of the Target exclusive Snowflake cars for 2016. Also a friend from Europe send over twelve new Mystery Models for 2016. This set has a mf gold Loop Coupe chase piece.
