Just realised I didn't share the haul of cars I acquired while on a recent European work trip - it was rather a thrash to Paris and Berlin and back with very little sleep, but I checked out a few motorway services on the way, and had an afternoon in Berlin to go hunting. Germany really is so much better than the UK for toy cars, I love it. I hadn't been to Berlin before, most of these came from Smyth's that I didn't know you could find in Germany, normally my go-to is a chain called Muller. Didn't come across one of those but did find one in a small town on our way back

Entertainer took delivery of four 2023 A cases just as I got there today - RS2000 and red Cosworth acquired. I really want to do a custom version of that RS X pack so that's a pleasing find. I'll take some pics of the others I found when I get home

This is the one I've been itching to get my hands on though

So it was immediately released from its blister

And dismantled! I love finding Easter eggs in Mattel cars, this has the BDA engine under the bonnet, that you can't see without taking it apart!

I've had these wheels for ages awaiting the arrival of this car. Added various bits of detail to the mirrors, lights, handles, badges, rollcage, boot straps/bonnet pins, B pillar etc etc

I’ve got a bunch more since I last posted, until I figure out exactly what here are the most recent few.

Mgb and mr2 are super . Assume it’s the original 80s casting?
I doubt it, but it does look quite similar. I'll have to get them side-by-side

I almost didn't go in Entertainer today as they got several boxes of Hot Wheels on Saturday. Glad I did though as they had a B case in.

Surf Crate is the Treasure Hunt for the B case

It's a bit silly, but I like the Gotta Go. It works a bit like the old Rolamatics, the toilet seat bobs up and down as it rolls along

The Super Treasure Hunt for the B case is this Merc SL, this is the normal version and it's a hard casting to find, as the last time it came out it was only in one case, and one car per case too. Maybe it will be more common this time but again there was only one example in the box I found
