It's that time of year!
The Hot Wheels year is officially into 2017, and that is the time that we look back on the year that was, and pick a few highlights. It is time for the Lamley Awards!
If you are not familiar with the Lamley Awards, this is something we do at the end of every year. We do a series of polls, and readers will cast their vote in several categories, including Best & Worst Super TH, Best & Most Disappointing Licensed New Model, and Hot Wheels Model of the Year. We also do a poll for best Matchbox New Model. After all the polls are done, we will present the Reader's Choice Selection, along with the Lamley Selections. And as previous Lamley Awards have proven, there are ALWAYS surprises.
So as we here in the US have heard a lot lately, GET OUT AND VOTE!
We always start with the Best Super Treasure Hunt of year. Nothing gets discussed more than Super TH's. Nothing creates more excitement or vitriol among collectors. There are never mild opinions about them. Collectors either love them or love to hate them. But Supers are an integral part of Hot Wheels Collectors these days.
And 2016 is no exception. We want to know what you think the Best Super was in 2016. And how you define "Best" is up to you. I know how I define it, but everyone is different. After the vote we will see what 2016 Super TH will join the 2015 Ferrari 599XX, 2014 Datsun 510 Wagon, 2013 Toyota 2000GT, and 2012 Ferrari 599XX as Best Supers of the Year.
So check out the photos below, in order of release, and then vote on your favorite. The poll will close next week.
