well, I'll try and help out a bit..as far as the ZAMAC thing, these are Toys R Us exclusives that are unpainted versions of new First Editions..maybe somebody can help here and post a link to one of the number of other posts where this same question ws asked?

..and yes they have a plane in the 'hot 100' or First Editions for 2004...when we first heard about it, some were kinda sceptical... cuz in the past we had things like the helicopter and the blimp...yuk... why put out a Hot Wheels with no wheels?!? :jest:

but this Madd Proppz kinda grows on me, anyway, at least it has wheels.. they still seem to be hard to find...people (or scalpers) snagging them up as soon as they hang on the pegs... I did find one..opened it up and it is suspended from my ceiling, flying over all the little cars down below!

Hi Mecal,

Zamac stands for "zinc aluminum metal alloy casting". Basically all it is, is a car that is unpainted but still has the normal tampos (decals) on it. They are a Toys R Us exclusive and are shipped to that store in a blue striped case rather than a purple striped case that all other stores get. In the US there are stores like Albertson's grocery and Jewel/Osco that Zamacs have also been found at but that is because they contract to TRU to get their toys. In any given blue stripe case there may be 3 to 7 zamacs plus, but not always, a TH (again not always), and the regular assortment of cars. There will be 36 zamacs for this year from the Hot 100. the most desirable so far seem to be the four cars pictured on that ebay link above. If you want a list of all 36 cars that are zamacs this year just let me know and I will find one for you.

well for lists im not sure but the new power sander go kart thing the plane and the new motorcycles crooze and the other new one will all be hard to get

also zamacs are hard to get cazz there only at one store

and that store here gives all the good stuff to a local scalper there like friends i guess but she even said he gets all wl;s th;s and zamacs and ive seen employees taking cars befor they open so after him and the employes im lucky to get the painted variant of anything good let alon the zamac not sure how long the zamacs have been out but i havent seen a one anywhere and i know i wont

lots of scalpers make them impossible to get

in 6 yrs ive got 2 wl's and 2 th's and that all of anything really hard to find exept today i got a whips car in spetraflame blue i here there are really rare but not sure

and as far as the planes motorcycles and go karts ive only found 4 in 6 yrs 2 crooze with ozz 1 blast lane 1 fight bike so id say those are some htf ones the other new motorcycle is called tomahawk i think but im not sure if its out yet

you should be able to get a list and pics of the cars for 2004 at www.hotwheelscollectors.com

good luck on hunting for zamacs though

heh yeah. I didnt think anyone was around the same age as me. :tongue:

i usually collect the First Editions, Final Run (i started collecting those recently (because they started recently?)), and just random setst hat i think are cool.

as far as F.E's go, i collect the ones that i dont see often, or ones that just look awsome. (as of now because there are far too many in a set, what happend to the good ol' days of 12 cars in the First Editions? :( )

the new sets arent that good, lately. but the Sega set, i have all of those, beacuse i love video games :thumbsup:

I have no Treasure Hunt, due to the fact that i havent found one yet.
cept once, but thats a long story.
