I've been surprised to hear a few of you complaining that the Fast & Furious Premium set is a little played out. What is more surprising is that I am going to be the one countering, especially considering my opinion on Fast & Furious. I don't hate the Fast & Furious movies. I actually have … Continue reading Showcase: Hot Wheels Premium Fast & Furious Off-Road
You kind of know what they are when they hit. Might be a fun feature too. Those models that one day will the models that future collectors are sad they missed.

We all like what we like, but Car Culture is in no way tired. In fact, … Continue reading Preview: Hot Wheels Car Culture Open Track
Two texts. The first a startled big eye emoji. The second, a photo of Hot Wheels latest Team Transport set, a Sukura Sprinter and C10 Skyline bearing the logo of JDM Legends.
