    Yea I've found plenty of both red and silver.

    BTW, any HW collectors in Long Island hit me up to trade or swap whatever. I've got an extra kool kombi and datsun 510 i'd trade for something im needing.

    yeah I'm a HW noob, but .. I wanna learn! Is it even possible to find Hunts and Super Hunts in stores? I have a Walmark, Kmart, Shopko, Kroger and Walgreens. Which is best for hunting?

    I tried looking for hunts today at Kmart, they have LOADS of HWs, .. but based on the web page I was using as a guide, I couldn't see any hunts there. :/

    My girlfriend finds treasure hunts on a regular basis. It's definitely possible.

    The only one out of 2014 she didn't find in the wild was the Poison Arrow (yet), she found everything else and already found the 2015 Case A hunt. We have a fair number of stores who are a few cases behind so she might still find it.

    Super Treasure Hunts, though, she has never found one in the wild. You need to either be in an area where there are no collectors or be at stores the minute the box goes on the pegs.

    In this area, even if you're there the minute the doors open the employees (at least at Wal-Mart, they've admitted it) scalp all the supers before they put them on the shelf.

    Been messing with some photo manipulation. Not the result I wanted, but I'll keep practicing.

    Also, for those of you who actively pursue the HW Star Wars line:

    Here's some advice
    Remove the Darth Vader car from its packaging
    Find the symbol of the Galactic Empire underneath it

    Embrace the Dark Side!

    Apparently, the feature from the SDCC version carries over with just simply shining a flashlight to the base of the car :)  Found this idea on HWC

    Man you guys are lucky. I havent found any TH's or STH's anywhere around here on Long Island since I started HW collecting for the past couple of months. Have a nice little collection at this point but nothing rare or hard to find. Got the KMART special delivered today and I love it. Anyone trade HW's on the forum?

    Found the new Star Wars Hot Wheels at TRU today in the Star Wars section. $3.99. I was going to wait for the SDCC version, but I am perfectly fine with the retail one at this price:

    Found a Howlin Heat with a wheel error, the back wheel was painted red instead of it's regular blue.

    Decided to buy it to see if it is worth something.

    So how does everyone learn what are the THs for 2015? Are they announced or are they just eventually discovered by collectors?

    There are specific websites that show which ones are coming out before they hit retail. This is possibles because some always find there way out of the factory and sold usually by sellers in malaysia. The supers known for 2015 are as follows:
    A case: kool kombi
    B case: rrroadster
    C case: toyota AE-86
    D case: ferrari 599XX(my personal favorite)
    E case: 69 ford mustang boss 302
    F case: 77 custom dodge van with Mooneyes deco

    The site I use is nchwa.com. Here is a link:
    NCHWA.com 2015 Treasure Hunt Price Guide

    Hope this helps.

    Different cars get the mooneyes deco. Though the super with it wont be out until next. You may have seen the vw beetle with the mooneyes deco.

    It wasn't easy finding a 240Z with clean paint apps. A lot of them were a complete mess - thanks for nothing Mattel...
