News Flash!!

Hold yer horses. I don't know if it's news to others, but I just discovered the GL '68 Chevy work truck that's out. It's green. I get e-mails from www.wheelcollector.com and I saw it yesterday.

So, I thought about starting a thread, saw the other one about the Suburban, and thought we need a common thread to look for to see whats new or what we can share. Do we already have one? If not, here it is

Blue Collar Series, they call it. Here's one on Ebay for an example:

Tim - the cool thing about getting old is you can experience excitement over the same news over and over again.

Re: News Flash!!

I get excited telling it over and over again!

Nothing new to report, but this here's the place when you have something. Come to think of it, I should have that thing by now. Hmmm...lemme check on that.

Re: News Flash!!

I need this one. I like the Greenlights that are done (almost) original. Could do better, but these are great 1/64ths for the "replica" value.

Still haven't gotten a Hot Wheels zamac '67 C/10, either

Re: News Flash!!

Me too! There was the camper version, but an empty bed is cool. I even like the package art. The camper had wheel wheels/dog dish I think. Yesterday morning I had an e-mail from www.wheelcollectors.com about that series, so I went ahead and ordered a few to get combined shipping. That's two new GLs just recently.

Hey Jeramy, that's cool you found one. I never saw one in all my toy hunting and I like finding the more obscure ones.

Re: News Flash!!

special-k my daughter found 11 of the zamac 67's Saturday night on a quick trip to walmart. I got several to do customs and gave a few away to my buddy. We had a great hunting weekend and were not even trying. Luck of the draw I guess.

I just got three from wheelcollectors on Ebay . They send me e-mails and their price was reasonable, so I got three to make shipping reasonable as well. One stays in the package, one spoken for, and the third to open and display. I like that they made a new wheel for these. It's actually the wheel cover. Other than mags, they had been using the same 15" dog dish wheel for all, even the C/20s

Re: News Flash!!

I don't really collect this stuff. Most of the things I had stashed for whatever reason I give to my grandson. He doesn't beat them up, especially since he isn't here that often. But when he is he likes to take a bunch out at a time and we roll them up and down the hallway.

That being said I like the 50th truck. Its kind of neat. If I had one I would probably pin it to the wall in my shop. Would be safe until my grandson spotted it LOL.

Re: News Flash!!



This is the 2017 Super Treasure Hunt truck. Apparently, the cards no longer identify the casting as a Super Treasure Hunt and there isn't corresponding Treasure Hunt. The "TH" along with the Spectraflame paint and Real Rider wheels denotes it's a Super Treasure Hunt.

Keep your eyes out in a few weeks. There are a few showing up on EBay shipped from Malaysia (probably smuggled out of the factory).

Re: News Flash!!

I am ready to find one of these in the wild. A buddy of mine just got one off of Ebay. It's a nice color and tampo combination. Definitely different than most trucks you see.

These are cool...I just got the green '68 & the Anniversary Gold '68....I've had the Hitch & Tow with the orange '69 & the white '72 with the feathers for awhile now. I want the Dazed & Confused black '71 or '72, but had heart failure over the $20+ price...

That a hard one to swallow, even harder to swallow that I killed 7 of them doing customs, also killed a couple of the baby blue 68's from the "Dallas" TV show,

Nothing new for so long, I hardly check this forum. Never did get this purple version. Haven't been checking Ebay, either, till the other day and I did see one of these claiming to be TH. You see that a lot, so I'm glad to see they are in fact THs. I knew Hot Wheels was subduing the TH identity. The one on Ebay wasn't crazy high.

Yeah, you gotta watch those eBay listings. I see so many auctions playing the "treasure hunt" card when the item is anything but.
