Showcase: Hot Wheels Japan Historics 3 is NOT for you.

AAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!! More JDM!?!?! Can Hot Wheels give it up already? Enough!! There is so much else out there, and yet here we are …

Hot Wheels Car Culture enters its FIFTH year with Door Slammers. After so many hits and misses, is CC Hot Wheels’ most successful premium line ever?

Obviously I don't know the sales and revenue numbers, but let's ask that question in the title from a collector perspective. Entertainment and Pop Culture have lasted longer, and thankfully done well, but Car Culture seems to be on a different level entirely. For those that have collected for at least the last 15 years …

Silhouettes is to me easily one of the best Car Culture mixes in its three-year history. Two new models, two others that have never been in Car Culture, and all sporting real racing liveries or "tributes". It …

Hot Wheels Marketing Manager Jimmy Liu gave us a sneak while he was meandering about in London over the holidays: https://www.instagram.com/p/Br_ZyoAAMgy/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link It'll be …

Oh this no tampo Gasser is rad.

Just thought I'd share.  Wheel Collectors pulled this from their latest shipment.  I tried to get it.  I lost. They did put it on eBay. What is it about no tampo models that is so cool?
