2015 Lamley Awards: What was the WORST Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt of 2015?


If we are going to ask for the best, we might as well as for the worst as well.

The vote for Best Super of 2015 is still open, and closes at the end of the week.  The voting for the top spot is incredibly close right now, so every vote will count.  Don't miss out.

Along with that, here is your chance to voice your opinion on the Worst Super of 2015.  Picking a worst can be hard, but it is up to you to decide on your criteria.  Was it the most disappointing?  The weakest casting choice?  The ugliest?  Whatever makes it the worst, vote for it on the poll below.  We will unveil the winner, along with our choice, when we announce the Lamley Awards a little later.

This should be really fun...

  1. Worst super TH has to go to Rrroadster. The regular version in my experience is the only regular version of the super that collectors left behind in droves. I mean this Rroadster was at every store I went to and in abundant quantities and there seems to be such little variation between super and regular models, I had to go through every single Rrroadster only to be disappointed in the end. Supers should all be licensed vehicles

  2. I had a hard time deciding between the corolla, supra, lancer evo, and Toyota Baja truck. I picked the supra since that is the worst of the 4 japanese cars.

  3. All the hate for the Rrroadster kind of sucks. It is a neat casting, sort of a throwback to '60's Jaguars. I actually like it.

    The worst to me had to go between the Lancer and the Mastretta. The wheels on the Lancer killed it, and the Mastretta is just one I don't care for. Ended up going with the Mastretta.

    1. Much agreement on the Rrroadster Doomus. Of course the fantasy car will always get the downvote here because of the audience the poll is projected at. Not that it's lamleys fault, but it's the way that it is and it's a shame because the Rrrroadster is definitely NOT the worst super hunt this year. I hate how that works..... "oh it's a "fantasy" car and it's butt ugly and is definitely worse than all the other real cars" Yo guys, news flash!! The Rrroadster is actually a cool HW original design, and if it was a real car, it would not be getting the downvotes that it is.

      For me, I went with the delorean. As cool and happy I was to see it get the release that it did, the yellow stripes on the red just didn't do it for me. I didn't even pick up the regular version.

  5. The Kool Kombi and Rroadster are not particularly appealing to me but I wouldn't say I dislike them I'm just not enthusiastic about them.

  6. Has to be the Supra. The casting itself isn't bad, but the colour and graphics are. First of all, dark brown is not a very good choice, especially when the car is modded. And then there's the tacky graphics.

    I mean, come on? It looks like out of NFS Undergound (which was a shit game) and the decal placement is really bad. Random tyre marks here and there with brand names slapped on randomly as well. Even the tampos haven't been applied properly. Very poor job.

  7. For me it was the wheels and the graphics on the Evo that pushed me to vote in that direction. I kinda like the Rroadster and its Jag roots. The Kombi was my favorite...it just oozes West coast cool. I liked the Mastretta as well, it's the chin that kills it there. Great color and wheels, though.

  8. The Rrroadster was definitely the weakest casting but I had to pick the Evo for sheer lack of execution. What should have been a great addition to any JDM collection ended up with unappealing tampos and awful wheels.

  9. I feel as if I can really get behind the Rrroadster here and was actually thrilled to see it as a super. To me it just ooze's classic Hot Wheels design. A car capable of reaching unimaginable speed while still holding a futuristic classic style. I don't collect only licensed models, I collect what I like personally. Whether it be licensed or unlicensed. I, sadly, didn't have the pleasure of coming across the Rrroadster in the wild. Now is it the best super of this year? Absolutely not. My vote went to the 8 Crate, another classic Hot Wheels unlicensed design. I felt as if I needed to stick up for the poor car which is already off to a bad start. Don't worry Super Rrroadster, I'm here for you.

  10. My worst would be the maserati. I just really hate the model out of all the other cars. Sometime its so ugly i forget its a real car and assume that its a hot wheels design car. It really does look like alot of hot wheels other design cars. But its not hot wheels fault, its the way the actual car look. That plus its too bland and there is nothig that really jumps out to me. I can understand the hate for rrroadster, but atleast it had some Hot Wheels Racing design too it. Bad excuse but just sayin. Other than that, this year wasnt bad. Was really hard to kinda choose a worst. But if i had to choose one, it be that "oh my god, i cant belive its a real car!" Maserati.

    1. So spell check wasnt on. Please dont correct me, i get it.it s a mastretta. But on another note, i noticed the toyota truck is in the lead for the least worst car....maybe the best of the year?

    2. If there is anything that I consider fascinating with regards to the Mastretta is that it's a Mexican car and I did purchase one for my self (but it's a blue one),another blue and even an orange Mastretta for my nephews.Just saying.

  11. For me it was the DMC. I just could not look past its dated deco.

  12. I wouldn't necessarily say the worst, but I would say the most disappointing hunt was the Lancer. Right casting, right deco, but wrong wheel color.

    Even though the kool kombi has the best decorating, it's actually my least favorite. I know that in this context, it don't matter, but I never was a fan of that casting. So it was hard for me to vote for it being the best the other day.

  13. O pior para mim foi o Rrroadster, só não votei no Lancer ou no Mustang Fastback porque são os 2 $uper que eu achei este ano até agora!
    Embora o Pass Gasser ficou horrivel!

    1. eu acho que rrroadster ficou bom em relação ao supra,cor da roda muito pro street,se é que vc entende,mustang fastback cor da roda, uma merda para a cor base não combina pass 'n gasses tá muito feio como o mustang,que seira melhor os 2 com roda preta ou prata,o toyota tá uma merda,sem a cor branca e a traseira preto fosco,sem falar que tirar a propaganda e botar na lateral a linha preta e sprinter trueno seria muito mais agradével e original ao modelo

  14. the rrroadster think it was not the worst so why not as exaggerated model, the color all above with the wheels with green and yellow colors, but the base color, a wine, did not match, pass n 'gases and blue msutang also did not please me, the wheel should be silver, a chrome because it is crap blue car with wheels mark text, although with a good design, but did not like the corolla even less, and in red wine color can be attractive rum but without the back cover and the rear wing is not as matte black hood as it should be, and the white color would be better this propaganda on the side leaves much less exclusive

  16. Rrroadster. I wanted to be fair, but if it comes down to which one I didn't want from the lot, it's the Rrroadster. Such a cruel poll! lol

  17. While I'm not surprised that people don't like the Rrroadster due to it being a fantasy casting, worth the least on ebay etc, it was actually nicely executed. Nice colour scheme, nice wheels, casting that screams Hot Wheels.

    My least favourite was the Pass N Gasser. Just a horrible execution of a casting that could have done so well as a super. Horrible wheels, horrible paint. It looks straight out of a clear plastic McDonalds bag.

  18. I voted for Mastretta MXR. But I think in general the rubber tyres aren't fit for any car like Ferrari or something similar. The Supra and the Corolla is still tolerable though
