Of course, for we collectors, "Toy Fair" can create confusion, making it sound like a toy show or convention. It is, … Continue reading The Matchbox 1985 Porsche 911 Rally Toy Fair model offers another glimpse into 2019.
Christian Coujin from RAUH-Welt Begriff dropped this little doozy on IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlvdszTF8Y6/?taken-by=christiancoujin We have seen a lot of leaked images, but here is the completed product. The RWB Porsche is coming, and will debut in the 2019 Car Culture line, the first of three scheduled premium releases.

Porsches have to be hard to replicate in 1/64 scale. The rounded edges and sloping lines, from what I hear from designers, can be very difficult to shrink into small scale. The canvas to work with is much smaller, and moving from one point on the car to another in such a small space can … Continue reading A tale of two Porsches: The new Hot Wheels 918 Spyder is a major upgrade over the Concept

I would say value doesn't hold a whole lot of weight in what I collect. I would have to think that is the case with most of you as well. Treating Hot Wheels purely as an investment is ludicrous. There are better, for more productive ways to get your kids through college. But value is … Continue reading Would you pay $1000 for a Hot Wheels Toy Fair Porsche 934?

There are signatures on the cards. Signed by the stars that are associated with both new models. The dudes signing them must be stars. And they are. And you know that, too. There is a good chance you are on Instagram if you are reading this blog, and while Magnus and Sung gained their fame … Continue reading The Celeb Cars: Magnus’ Porsche and Sung’s Maverick are the stars of Hot Wheels Mix E
The Super vs Super feature continues, with another obvious one. I will try and get more clever on my pairings, and Porsche vs Porsche isn't clever. Both are Porsches (duh), but they are also racing cars, and sport interesting Real Rider wheels. It is actually the wheels that made me feel like they were a … Continue reading Super vs Super: 2018 Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5 and 2016 Porsche 993 GT2
Por-SHUH. Por-SHUH. Por-SHUH. Maybe I'll remember it better if I link it to "Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!" Some of you will get that. I get grief for a lot of things, and my pronouncement of "Porsche" is near the top of the list. I was defiant at first, as everyone I knew said "Porsche" as a … Continue reading One cool Por-SHUH Super Treasure Hunt this is, this Hot Wheels Porsche 934.5.
