The Lamley Awards: What are your Top 3 Hot Wheels Premium Models?

The vote continues...

We have closed the voting for the Best/Worst New Models and Treasure Hunts for 2012.  We are tallying the votes now and will announce the winners along with all the other Lamleys when all voting is done.  Many thanks to the many that participated.

So now on the next group of selections.

What are your Top 3 Hot Wheels Premium Models of 2012?

Now what do we mean by Premium?  We decided to define Premium as those models with metal bases and real riders.  Other lines like the Hot Ones will be in another vote.

So in 2012, there were three lines:

  • Nostalgia
  • Hot Wheels Racing
  • Boulevard
We realize that there are several new tools in these lines, but we are not going to differentiate.  Just look at the list of all the models, and select your Top 3, new tools or not.

(We also realize that convention and RLC models are premium as well, but because they were not available in stores, we decided to omit them.)

Need a reminder?  Here are links to all the lists from our friends at South Texas:

2012 Boulevard:

2012 Racing:

Note: There are two final batches that have yet to be listed on South Texas:

Final Boulevard Batch:

Final Nostalgia Batch (Atari):

As always, there are three ways to leave your Top 3:
And don't worry, no matter where you leave your Top 3, it will get counted.

Thanks everyone...
