    You can never go wrong with the 66 Batmobile. Probably one of the coolest customs ever built..even today. I just started picking up the 1/50 scale Batmobiles in all the different incarnations. I'll take some pictures once I gather them all together.

    As someone who enjoys the show more than the fandom ot has collected, I try not to buy a lot of Rick and Morty stuff. But finding it WalMart the other day took me by surprise and I went ahead and picked one up to sit along with my Homer and Snoopy.

    Nice! Found a single bag of the series 3 mystery cars and got the one I wanted. This Datsun wagon is AMAZING! It's got a distressed look that I love. The rim colors are amazing also!

    I'm not huge on the Datsun wagon, but the colors and wheels on this is super nice.

    That Ecto-1 impressed me. I have a few of the premiums they've released, but this one has a retooled roof rack and lights!

    Only had to drive 9 hrs to find these in Mississippi.
    My local stores never have them.
    They also had the Skyline GT-R, Gullwing Mercedes, Moon deco VW Bug, and Ford GT carriers. None of which I've seen before in person.

    Nice finds. I actually went to a Target last week that had a end cap display specifically for Team Transport. They had the two you picked up as well as the gullwing Benz, Porsche, Superbird and Moon VW in it. First time I've seen that and it did have great sets in it.

    Maybe that's a new thing with Target.
    There was an endcap for Transports, but the Mustang was near the regular Hot Wheels, on a shelf. The Galaxie was on another endcap for regular Hot Wheels all the way on the other side of the toy aisles.

    It's definitely the first time I've seen it. Th we y had quite a few good sets in there but I'd already ordered the last wave off Amazon. The Gullwing Benz I had to pay a couple bucks premium on so it figures that that one was in the end cap of course.

    Some recent hauls. The F&F Spy Racers cars are great! Gimmicks are simple but pleasant. The white one is great. The Astana Motors Hotto is my fave here. Best looking car of the bunch. The rally lights win me over completely!

    HW Boulevard Bel Air Gasser! Love this casting and this deco is particularly nice!

    Found a mainline Mustang Boss 302 RTR-X which was a surprise to me. I got the Mega Need For Speed buildable one years ago so getting the HW as a companion is cool as hell!

    A few Target and Dollar Tree finds this weekend. I mostly just buy the things I think look cool, but I have a thing for Batman and Jeeps.
