Hot Wheels Racing Circuit: DEORA II

The odd duck of the 2017 #Walmart Exclusive, #Hot Wheels Racing Circuit series is certainly the #Deora II.

Now, I know there were certainly […]

X-Raycers 5-Pack: SCION xB

Back in July, I was walking through a small toy store in La Jolla, California and noticed a couple new 5-Packs that I had not seen before. Of course, the one car that stood out to me was the bright orange #Scion xB. Being a collector of this […]
