Lamley Case Report: Opening a 2015 Hot Wheels International E Ca$e...
As we mentioned in our previous post, it was a crazy day at Wheel Collectors yesterday. On the same day, a full pallet from Greenlight and a full pallet from Mattel. That meant a lot of sorting and a lot of listing. All I know is they were still there when I was going to bed.
Among the many arrivals was the Hot Wheels 2015 E Case, and in the middle of the mayhem Matt was nice enough to document the unboxing of one of them. We know you like these unboxing posts, so we ask him to take photos of at least one case of every batch. The other cases? It is pretty much a dump and sort.
Well, as you will see, Matt picked a good case. There are some cool models in here, none better than the '69 Mustang Boss 302, which makes its debut in the mainline.
One note. We mentioned in our D Case Report that there have been many complaints about bad packing jobs. Maybe Mattel fixed it, because all of the E cases Wheel Collectors received were well-packed. Let's hope it stays that way.
So here it is, the Hot Wheels 2015 International E Case, opened and pulled and 3-by-3. Enjoy...

Hot Wheels 2015 E Case:
Not bed, eh? The McLaren should be a hit, that Mustang is fantastic (and the Super even more so. First Look coming later this week), and even that wild Beetle is a pretty cool Regular TH. There are some strange fillers, like the Speedhunters Viper that has been out for awhile, but all in all a nice case.
