Walmart Find: Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Punisher Van

Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Punisher Van

I don't really buy any hot wheels, or minicars anymore, but I still check the pegs when I'm in stores & today, I thought this was pretty cool:

Hot Wheels ghost rider charger

Online, I thought this was really crappy "mud" finish?  It only clicked when I held it in my hand(not into comic books): Ghost Rider rides has flaming tires!

At first glance, I thought these were nicely detailed Coke cars by M2..... then saw the price tag.  OMG, man.  Not saying $9 isn't a fair price for M2 cars, but personally, I hate that kind of price hike(these are normally $6, $7 tops).  :(

New & Sold Out from Tarmac Works: GreenLight Pennzoil Nissan Skyline GT-R(BNR34)

GreenLight Pennzoil Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR34

I got mine from Tarmac Works, but I believe you can still get them on eBay for cheaper, at least if you are in the U.S.  I'm on my way out of the hobby, selling off my collection, so I don't know what the heck I'm doing with this thing, but here it is.  An impulse buy I suppose.  :p

I paid $20.40, but $11.50 of that was shipping.  One of the headlamp's bit crooked in the macro shot, but I think it's really nicely done.  If shipping wasn't involved. lol

Tarmac Works 1/64 Toyota Supra Racing Version White - Hong Kong Minicar Festival Exclusive Model

Tarmac Works 1/64 Toyota Supra Racing Version White - Hong Kong Minicar Festival Exclusive Model

Limited to 480 pieces.  "Hong Kong Exclusive", but they had few available to us on their website.  RLC Hot Wheels with 3,000 pieces are sometimes hard to get.  Ignition Model with 999 pieces were kinda crazy.........  This Supra is 480 pieces.  It's a limited, limited edition!

I'm not gonna lie, while I do have a soft spot for Tarmac Works, this isn't impressive for $20+(scarcity of #'s released do more than make up for it IMO).  It's very cleanly detailed though.  While it's no TLV, it's not Asian GreenLight either.  Personally, I find it comparable to early Kyoshos.
