Case Report: Opening a 2015 Hot Wheels International N Case...


Two batches to go, and 2016 is upon us.

Maybe not the year, but the Hot Wheels line.  We already know of two 2016 Super TH's (the blue Acura NSX we previewed yesterday has been confirmed), and more tidbits are emerging.  We will pass along anything we learn.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.  There is still a lot to get to in 2015.  We have seen sneak peeks of all the models, but there are still some surprises coming, including what should be a dandy batch of Kmart exclusives.  Oh, and that Nissan 180SX a few of us are excited to get our hands on.

Oh, and this batch.  Batch N.  The one that just arrived at Wheel Collectors:

There are few models I am interested in, and quite a few I think many of you are interested in as well.  So shall we get to it?

As always, this is a random case taken off the pallet that was delivered to Wheel Collectors, and each model, pulled 3-by-3.  Let's see what we've got:


Hot Wheels 2015 N Case:







Reg TH Alert:






















Interesting case.  A reg TH, but no Super.  That is not a surprise, but not even a regular Supra showing up is.  Thankfully, the basic and Super appeared in other cases.


This may not be my favorite version of the Supra, but it is a great Super TH.  We will give it a full feature a little later.  And on top of that, this is a great case.  That Simpsons car, along with another chance to get the BTTF Hover Car should make a lot of you happy.

Your thoughts?

  2. BMW and Homer's car is a must have. Supra is my fav in real life, but not this HW version.This is an iconic japanese car, I would prefer it without unrealistic tampoes and "clown" wheels.

  7. Why oh why oh why is Mattel churning out the same undesireable castings year after year. As a steady collector of 20 years I have never seen so much garbage from Hot Wheels brand. Every box you guys open is a serious dissapointment. Maybe 2 decent castings in each case....maybe. I hardly spend any money at all anymore. Im almost done collecting all together now.

  10. Looks pretty good; two BTF Hover Mode cars hopefully mean we'll actually see one up here in Canada some day. Probably not, though.

    And ohhh-weeee, the scalpers are going to have a FIELD DAY with The Simpsons car.
