Blog Partner:

Hi guys, I would like to introduce you to our new blog partner The Collectionary! It's one the best place to go on the internet, a website which brings together collectors and offers a great place to buy and sell Hot Wheels and also other collectibles.

The front page of

What inspired The Collectionary into existence?

The Collectionary was created because we wanted to create a Dictionary of everything in the world that people collect.   There are hundreds of e-commerce sites, but there is no dedicated place where you can learn about different items.  Whether it's the history, facts, or unique attributes regarding a particular collectible or item, we want to give people a place to learn about the collectibles they love.   

What made you coin it The Collectionary? 

Collectionary comes from combining the words Collection and Dictionary.  A fun play on words that explains what we are working on with our site and brand. 

Why is your site devoted solely to Hot Wheels?

No, the Hot Wheels Collectionary is one out of hundreds of different Collectionaries to join.  We have expert collectors we call moderators that help us with each Collectionary to add new and cool items to the site.  In fact, we would love to have more Hot Wheels moderators willing to help out :). 

TheCollectionary's Hot Wheels section
What's the takeaway for potential customers? What can they hope to gain from perusing your site?

We hope anyone checking out our site will enjoy looking at all the amazing collectibles ever created.  Looking at the older, nostalgic items we want them to bring back many fond memories as a child or another time in your life.  We also want people to learn about Collectibles as we point to where those items are for sale anywhere on the internet. 

Anything unusual worth noting about your site? Hot Wheels? 

Our site would love to have more moderators helping us out.  I'm sure you will find many unusual and never before seen Hot Wheels items here.

It's no secret that I'm a Devil-Z fan, since my first post about the 2011 Devil-Z Treasure Hunt I'm still on the look for my holy grail, the $uper Treasure Hunt.

I almost giving up searching due to the market price keep raising, but luckily a few days ago I found one on the net, its in loose condition but still in mint-like condition. The price was good, it was something that I could not pass by.

The story about Wolf-Man or Werewolf appears since the early folklore. Hollywood then bring this iconic monster figure to the movie screen in 1941 Universal horror classic “The Wolf Man”.

Madworks Kustoms' John Morton BRE Datsun 240z (Dirty version / Chase Car)

Ever since the HW Vintage Racing John Morton's Datsun 510 BRE being released in 2011 it become an instant collector's favorite. I my self have to wait for 2 years to get one.

John Morton was a legendary SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) racer, which he won SCCA C Production with the 240Z (National Championships in 1970-71) and the 2.5 Trans-Am with the 510 (Championships in 1971-72).

In 2011 Hot Wheels released their Vintage Racing lineup, which one of the is Morton's Datsun 510 in honor of his achievement.

Hot Wheels never made the 240z (also known as the Devil-Z) version but I was lucky enough to find one. This is a custom art work by Mr. Hadi Rochmansyah of Madwork Kustom Diecast. I was a very well detailed custom, the car it self use the 2013 HW Showroom - Asphalt Assault regular mainline.

To be honest this is one of the best custom diecast I ever had.. Well built, highly detailed paint job and also well presented. This is a 1 of 1 car from a 4 variants 240z. (2 John Morton's and 2 John McComb's).

Todays Haul: Datsun Bluebird 510 (Black)

Finally got this black beauty in the blister, got it for a real bargain price.. the seller was kind enough to offer me 2 of these and made me an offer I cannot refuse

This is a black version of the 2009 Datsun Bluebird 510 by Jun Imai, the others were the blue and the brown one. This black version only available in the US market, not available here in the Indonesia / International market. Thats why it has a high market value here in Asia.
