Case Report: 2018 Hot Wheels Q Case, the last case of the year.

And here we are.  2018 essentially in the books.  At least when it comes to what we know is coming.  These still need to hit the stores of course, and there are still quite a few premium mixes to come.  But Hot Wheels 50th is coming to a close, and we do what we always do:

Speculate about the next year.

I heard that they are going to do 87 Supers, they will be mail-in only, and will be only JDM.  And I heard that the Design Team took a secret oath to eliminate all muscle cars, sealed in blood and pinky promises.  At least that is what I heard.  Let’s see.

First though, let’s get through the Q Case.  Tell me what you think.  What I think is Hot Wheels appropriate front loaded the basic range, and the Q case is proof.

As always, these shots were taken by Wheel Collectors, who grabbed a case off their pallet at random, and opened it 3-by-3.  You can find the models in their ebay store.

  1. Looks identicle to the P Case. As far as 2019 goes. I would like to see castings of the McLaren Senna and Lamborghini Centenario. We also need a Car Culture Exotics.

    1. I definitely agree with you on that! What would you have in the set, excluding cars we’ve recently seen as premiums and Ferraris? I’d proably go with something like this:

      McLaren F1 GTR
      Lamborghini Diablo SV
      Bugatti Chiron or Veyron
      Mercedes SLR McLaren
      Lotus Evora GT4

      If we could get Ferrari back, I’d put the F50 in there.

  2. Wow those new Q Case mainline hotwheels coming out are all awesome.👍 I will be on the hunt for all of those.👍 And I can’t wait to add all of those to my hotwheels collection.👍

  3. I love the Cruella De Vil. It may be the closest we’ll see to a classic Rolls Royce Phantom from Hot Wheels. I’m glad the Super received those fat whitewalls. It really sets the car apart from its basic counterpart.

  4. Not sure if anyone else caught it, but this case had a regular treasure hunt. It will be the Crate Racer, with the treasure hunt Flame Logo on the door towards the tail of the green flames.

  5. Again! Weak case just like P. The only worth getting are the Porsche, Lamborghini, impala, firebird, and maybe Beetle, because white color looks much better. The rest of them are all pegwarmers.

    1. I agree (though the Cruella is an intriguing prospect), but then, this is the end of the year. A new one will soon begin with a whole bunch of hot new castings. Patience, grasshopper.
