327/365 – Snoopy is getting his weight checked before hitting the road. I love these Convoy Custom’s, great trucks.
325/365 – When I saw this Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt at my local Kroger affiliate the other night, I immediately knew what kind of picture I wanted to do. So last night my lovely daughter and I set up the track, the camera, and the tripod, then started experimenting. We shot a LOT of pictures, trying to get things dialed in. This was one of the better ones, and really close to what I was envisioning for the Off Track. Hope you like it.
321/365 – Most cars from the San Diego Comic-Con are expensive in the secondary market. Like absurdly expensive. Take the 2014 Hot Wheels Darth Vader car. It retailed for $40 at the show, but on eBay it is fetching over $150. 2014 cars themed for James Bond or The Simpsons are also commanding big money. Part of that is because those brands have a following all their own, kind of like Coca-Cola. Some people just have to own every Star Wars thing out there. Fortunately for me, the same was not true with this Custom El Camino. I think this car is just as pretty as my RLC Kombi, though Real Riders would have been a nice touch. But I was able to get this car for about $10 on eBay. Yep, $10 for a Comic-Con car. Heck, even the USS Enterprise, Comic-Con edition, can be had for $20 at hotwheelscollectors.com. So don’t get discouraged by the prices on the high profile items. If you have a casting you like (and I love this El Camino, I have all 3 versions now), keep an eye out, you might be able to get a premium version on the cheap.
