2015 HOT WHEELS FIRST SUPER TREASURE HUNT$ IN U.S. CARDED SPOTTED ON 18.AUGUST.2014

Today, we have our first look at the very first 2015 Super TH$ Volkswagen Kool Kombi in U.S. carded form. As early as in mid August 2014, we can expect to see more upcoming super treasure hunt$ soon. At the mean time, check it out.
                               2015 #73 KOOL KOMBI (US LONG CARD EDITION)
                                                    SUPER TREASURE HUNT$

If you compare to the regular version of the same edition which i wrote in my previous post here, you can see that the front cover of the Kool Kombi's rear view has been chopped off. So, it is not a full view of the vehicle. Sometimes, these cards has some changes and the Mattel stuffs might make some little mistake. Just like what happen in 2013 mainline edition for the first Super Treasure Hunt$ #242 '72 Ford Gran Torino Sport which has a fire symbol with round circle surrounded it which this symbol soon-to-be for regular treasure hunt series models.

And also if you look at the printed "KOOL KOMBI" at the bottom of the front cover, it also miss out the main brand name - VOLKSWAGEN which previous model in 2013 and 2014 mainline series has it.

So, for now we will have to wait to see more of any variations that might occurs in this very first Super TH$. Remember folks, the first ones always has some kind of variations and sometimes on its casting and the body tampos as well. Keep your eyes open wide, ok.

Thanks for viewing my blog. More updates will be coming up soon. Take care guyz! See you around soon. :D

2014 HOT WHEELS FULL ROLL CAGE VARIATION SPOTTED SINCE 23.NOVEMBER.2013 - PUBLISHED ON 12.AUGUST.2014

It seems that this year, Hot Wheels has all kinds of variations on its casting and one of the popular one that caught alot of attentions was the variations on its interior - whether there is a roll cage or without them built in it. This is very interesting because you will need to look very closely and pay a little bit more attention to its interior. Whether the car that you like or have been collected for some times now, you might still miss out some of the variations that you never know you have them under your collection. So, the very first one that spotted with Roll Cage was the 2014 #195 '92 BMW M3 (RED) which was back in late November 2013 (2014 Mainline B Cases).
WITH ROLL CAGE VARIATION
WITHOUT ROLL CAGE VARIATION
As you know, not just that it exist in either International or U.S. Long card edition, it also appears in International Short Card edition.There's a weird error too With Roll Cage variation which was spotted on 26.March.2014. The front wheels seems to be pushed down by an extra piece of metal.

The 2nd one with the same variations is the 2014 #21 Mazda RX-7 (METAFLAKE RED) which was found in 2014 Mainline D Cases (SPOTTED ON: 28.NOVEMBER.2013)
WITH ROLL CAGE VARIATION
WITHOUT ROLL CAGE VARIATION
Another discovery on 23.July.2014 has the internal Roll Cage with extra bonus - Rear Chrome Open Hole 5 Spokes (OH5SP) Wheels which spotted in 2014 10 pack series.
The recently spotted on the 2nd body color (YELLOW) in 2014 Mainline Q Cases has no internal Roll Cage just yet. So we will see when it gets more released worldwide.
 
The 3rd one will be the 2014 #225 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-X (GLOSS BLACK) in 2014 Mainline K Cases (SPOTTED ON: 21.MARCH.2014).
WITH ROLL CAGE VARIATION
WITHOUT ROLL CAGE VARIATION

Now, the 4th ones will be the 2014 #250 Custom '64 Galaxie 500 (METAFLAKE LIME GREEN) ~ 2nd body color - which can be found in 2014 Mainline L Cases (SPOTTED ON: 28.MARCH.2014).
WITH ROLL CAGE VARIATON
WITHOUT ROLL CAGE VARIATION

This variation was also spotted in International Short Card edition.

So a full set for these should have been 4 cars and there has not been any variant on this model's blister just yet. The 1st body color which is the Dark Maroon has no sight at this time with this variation (with Roll Cage).

With the recently released Walmart Zamac edition (SPOTTED ON: 9.AUGUST.2014), the same model "5th" also have the same features but not many were able to obtain it cause it is very limited in quantity. This was found in 2014 Mainline N Cases in U.S. Walmart stores only. Not all cases have the Zamac Edition for this model, so you have to look for it wisely. :)
WITH ROLL CAGE VARIATION
WITHOUT ROLL CAGE VARIATION

So, at the mean time, we should be looking back for all those cars that might have these same variation which we overlook at this time.
Alright. Thanks for viewing my blog.
Til next time, see you all soon. Take care! :D

2015 HOT WHEELS 1ST SUPER TREASURE HUNT$ SPOTTED ON THE MID OF MAY 2014 + EARLY SNEAK PEAK - WRITTEN ON: 10.AUGUST.2014

When we just so wanna get our hands on the last Super Treasure Hunt$ of 2014 - Datsun Bluebird 510 Wagon (Spectraflame Red), admiring the beauty of it and most of us still unable to obtain one for collection, 2015 1st Super Treasure Hunt$ - Volkswagen Kool Kombi (Spectraflame Dark Green) has already been spotted! No carded form has been sighted at this time. T-Hunted site already has an early sneak peak of this model in the beginning of August 2014. Check it out..
The very first picture was spotted in mid of May 2014. This is the one.

During that time, i was manage to custom one almost like it just to have a feel of what it really really looks like.. At that time, the angles that were sighted was a part of the front view and a little part of the side of the vehicle is viewable. After it takes a few days time to completed it, let's have a closer look at most of the angles that i took to share it with you, ok.
The side tampos was almost alike just the wordings 'SURF SHOP' was not bold enough.. the interior brown color supposed to be lighter but that is just my opinion. If you look at the original version, the rear interior - the surf bords, rear seat and the engine was not painted with colors. So i just follow the 2014 Red Line Club M&M Exclusive Volkswagen Kool Kombi (Gold Chrome body color) which painted the rear interior with colors. And it is way better than no color... hehe.. :D  Luckily, the original model uses Chrome plastic base just to highlight more to bring it more attractive. Oh.. i forgot, the rear tail lights was not painted too as well as the roof top. The Real Rider Rubber tires that the original uses was the perfect match for it! I really like this wheel so much.. but i haven't venture for a Gold Chrome Steelie Wheels just yet. Might have been even better.. Well, the imagination really runs wild for this model. :) The only tampo that i have missed out is the Hot Wheels logo on both side of the body tampos. Oh.. the side tampos... really really nice.. seems like a wood style pattern outlined by light skin brown color. Very nice... indeed! :D

Whereas for the front vehicle, the brown stripes tampos doesn't really bring much contrast to it. Maybe highlight the entire stripes with lighter Silver or Chrome would do it. If you noticed the front Volkswagen logo, the original uses Silver color but i think for me, too much silver won't suited for it. So i color it White. Much better, don't you think? :)  But overall, no matter what people say about this casting, it really makes ones really....really hungry for it cause its VOLKSWAGEN indeed! :D

Like all of you out there, good luck in hunting this one down cause it might be one of the best casting yet to be enlisted in next year's Super Treasure Hunt$ list eh.. :)
Thank you for viewing my blog and all your time.
I will be seeing you all soon. Take care! :D
