There was a lot that came from the Hot Wheels Convention earlier this month. I’ve shown the gorgeous Convention models, as well as Mattel’s 2019 Sneak Peak Presentation. I have even shown several images and videos of the board Mattel brought with prototypes of upcoming models. And there has been photos galore of those prototypes all over Instagram and Facebook.
But I don’t know if what is happening at the RLC has been properly conveyed to those that weren’t at the Convention. It is actually quite phenomenal. The models, like always, will be ultra-premium, but Mattel is taking another step forward into more detail and moving parts. And even beyond that.
Hot Wheels Designer Brendon Vetuskey, who is creating all the new tools for the RLC in 2019, was nice enough to walk us through what he is doing, including a truly innovative stance-shifting classic Chevy C10. Let’s just say it has to be seen to be believed.
Here is the video I shot with Brendon late Saturday night after the Finale. You will enjoy this:
