I'm obsessed with Hot Wheels Car Culture. Truly obsessed. I have claimed it is the best thing Hot Wheels has ever done, and as it evolves year-to-year, mix-to-mix, that opinion only gets stronger. From Japan Historics in 2016 through Cargo Carriers in 2018 (with much more to come), Hot Wheels has never been better. But … Continue reading The brilliant ’69 Nissan Skyline Van is like nothing Hot Wheels has ever done.
Five Supers in. Not a miss. 620 to Nova to Porsche to Mustang to Kenmeri. Supers don't have to be great castings, nor do they have to look good.

Two new Skylines in 2018, so far. C210 and Hakosuka Wagon still to come. For now, here is everyone I have, which coincides with everyone released, except for a few R32. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNHJY_88H9E
So how did this happen? How did Hot Wheels just release an R30 Skyline? In worldwide markets for that matter, including the US? How did a car that was never released in the US, and would probably be misidentified by many as a "sporty Sentra" before a Skyline, just get made by Hot Wheels? And … Continue reading The release of the Hot Wheels R30 Skyline is not surprising today, but still astonishing.
I think we all go into every diecast year wondering if this one will be the best yet. At least I hope we do. I think optimism is an integral part of collecting, especially these days when the way we collect is so internet and social-media based. We want to be excited about what … Continue reading If the 2018 A Case is any indication, Hot Wheels’ 50th year is going to be its most Japanese yet.
