That seems like a much better plan. The old supers had the $ which just screamed out to scalpers.

This is going to be interesting.... But if these new "Hidden" supers are going to be on Regular mainline cards , then i would think they would not be really considerd "Treasure Hunts"...but just a Fancy Mainline car. Also , i'm a bit cornfused on one part , Regular "Treasure Hunts" will be on THunt cards , but will the "Supers" that will be placed in the mainline be Super versions of the Regular TH's or are these going to be all Different?

Isn't this actually 2 different models; 15 THs and 15 "Superized"...?

From what I undserstand is that their is 30 different cars for the TH Series... 15 Regular on green cards that say pick me pick me and 15 hidden Supers in the mainline collector series that will take a scalper some time out of their day to look through all the cars pegged or boxed

In other words, there are still 30 hunts and this is a smokescreen by mattel to sell more cars.

That's gonna make for a fun time at the bin-o-death.

(well, assuming the store dumps the cases in without cherrypicking first)

I wonder how we will know which mainline cars will have a "Super" version. Maybe just as they show up?

Thanks for the vid Mark. This is going to be interesting, but I do think the scalpers will catchup to them. Shiny spectra flame paint job, and rubber wheels, will stand out on the pegs. It still has a color coded tab, so you can still find them in the pegs (based on what series it is in). I'm going to keep my eyes open for them.

I'm wondering what this "collector series" packaging is all about. If anything, that sounds like it would make a Super Hunt much more obvious.

What is commonly referred to as a "collector series" is for example "first editions", "Mopar Muscle", "Hw Race Team", etc. and is nothing more than a common segment within the mainline releases. All of the "supers" will not fall into the same series. TH#1 is the Super Bee from Mopar Mania and the 2nd super is from Muscle Mania 12. As a matter of coincidence they both happen to have a blue stripe. I would not be suprised to see "supers" from other series' that maybe have an orange or red stripe as well. Only time will tell. As stated the packaging will be no different than the common super bee being displaced by the super hunt in the same packaging.

That's how I took it.Regular packaging with a super version of the the same regular car. Will they list somewhere which series and car will be the TH?
I guess what I am asking is how did you know about the Super Bee or is that just an example?

Not to split hairs but, the packaging IS different... No pics, but do a quick search of the 'bay and compair the regular Super Bee and the "Super" Super Bee. Look at the hoods... There IS a difference. Thanks for the report Mark!!!
