Wow.  That's in amazing shape though, with the bullets still on the sprue and the outer box.  I had the Batmobile and my buddy across the street had the Batboat as well, but we both played with them and the boxes long went away.  I did keep my Batmobile in nice enough shape to sell it a couple of years back for about $200 though.

Whew, the TH luck appears to be back, at least for a while.  Had a very long stretch without finding one (8 months or so) but found one a couple of weeks back, then one on Monday and then eight more today including two supers.  Still gotta film my bonfire. >:D

Do the TH's still look like the ones from like two years ago with that green stripe or whatever?  I haven't really looked since I got those toon Camaros (which are still gathering dust somewhere)

Yup, green stripe down the side.  Just like in the picture above my picture with the white lightning. The Mustangs in the lower left of that picture are the first THs of 2010 (01/12) so the pattern remains the same for this year.

I picked up this beauty at the Kennedy Space Center, this is a reissued version of Code 3 model made by Toys & Models Corporation for the 40th Anniversary. Just stunning.  8)

Opened up the new Hot Wheels Ghostbusters ECTO-1 the other day and it's very cool.  Have it displayed with my Ertl Ecto-1 and 2009 Hallmark Ecto-1.

Huh, I still haven't found either the Ecto or the Batmobile so far.  I can stumble across Thunts every so often but those cars continue to elude me.  I did find five THs in the last couple of weeks including two super Thunts.

I only saw them one time and that's when I bought them.  

Just received the 1980 Hot Wheels Sto & Go City Playset I bought on ebay.  Sold mine off years ago and found a nice new one to put on display with my childhood Hot Wheels and Matchbox.  I kept all my childhood cars and carrying case but sold off everything else in the late 80s.  I also have the 1979 Service Station coming soon. 

Anyone else remember the Sto & Go Hot Wheel Sets from 1979, 1980,....?

I just remember the carwash set from the early 80's.  Very cool I guess back from the day.  Fun set.  Color change cars?  I don't recall, but a fun piece.
