Ha! I never said I didn't dislike them let alone respect them. Now that is another matter....business is another matter-a bird of a different feather if you will.
Greed is a powerful ally in this case.

I must admit that I've been rather intrigued by this concept DS.  I've gotten "caught" digging through the pegs by HW guys a few times now with no such luck.  Boy, did I feel embarrassed to be seen in their aisle.  I've seen some cards that have black plastic covering the bubble.  It said "Mystery" something on the packaging.  Are those TH too?

Those aren't TH per say but there are rumors floating around that they may contain THs. The mystery car series itself is 24 cars total, all different from the standard 2007 series. The only thing is you don't know what you're getting. I picked up 18 of them this morning and got mostly multiples, no THs (though I found 2 seperate TH's  ;D). One highlight though is that this series contains an exclusive Batmobile from The Animated Series. It's such a cool looking car...

I don't keep any TH's I find..sans motorcycles- I collect HW motorcycles if they look good.

One day I found 18 TH's!! I'm still getting stuff in trade back from that deal.

In case anyone is trying to find Treasure Hunts, the new banner along the side is different from the old one.  I find them easier to see now. 

Picture below the 2007 TH is on the left with the wide green bar/banner, on the left is the older identificatino with smaller green area and the treasure chest.
