What a phenomenal set. Hot Wheels Car Culture ends 2018 on a super strong note with the Drag Strip Demons, muscle-tastic set of drag racers. The usual suspects are here, the '55 Bel Air Gasser and Mercury Cyclone, as well as the retail debut of the Chevy Super Nova. But it is the other two … Continue reading The Hot Wheels Drag Strip Demons are here. Don’t forget the originals.
The second-to-last Car Culture release of 2018, and it's great one. Hard to pick a favorite, especially with an Advan Porsche, a 787B, and a Le Mans winning Ford GT. Plus a classic Corvette. So I will just like them all. But that has essentially been the case with all Car Culture. Here is a … Continue reading Showcase: Hot Wheels Car Culture Circuit Legends
It was a bit of a surprise to hear from a friend yesterday afternoon that he found the new Team Transport at Walmart. We have seen our friends in Australia finding them, but I didn't expect to see them here so soon. Alas, I was near a Walmart, so I walked in and there they … Continue reading The next batch of Hot Wheels Team Transport is at Walmart. Here is a showcase.
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. I might question the number produced mentioned in … Continue reading The brand new Hot Wheels Car Culture RWB Porsche has been unveiled. And oh man…
This is how it works. A friend of mine heard from a friend of his that Targets were getting the 50th Favorites - aka that set with the blue 510 Wagon. So he went looking at a nearby Target. No 50th, but he came across these: Even better! Team Transport has hit retail! He bought … Continue reading Hot Wheels Team Transport and 50th Favorites are hitting US Targets
Too late to Target? Wheel Collectors has Shop Trucks. The pallets just arrived, and they are listed now. And as you can probably tell from my last video - and upcoming photo post - this set is a must-have. Find it at this link: Hot Wheels Shop Trucks at Wheel Collectors
Car Culture is at the point that every release has incredibly high expectations. That is a blessing and curse to be sure, but thankfully it has been far more blessing than curse. Shop Trucks is the third mix released in 2018 (outside of Team Transport), and my guess is this will be a popular one. … Continue reading Opening Hot Wheels Car Culture Shop Trucks
I have no idea what to share about Team Transport anymore. Two videos and now this photo post, and I think you know my opinion. I don't have any fun facts to share, either. And I think we know the details. Coming VERY soon, most likely around $13-$14 at retail, and delivered in cases of … Continue reading Hot Wheels Car Culture Team Transport in pictures
This is the calm before the storm. We know what is coming. Team Transport could be out as early as this week. Hobby dealers like A&J Toys and Wheel Collectors have gotten word it is on its way, and I have to assume the big stores will see it soon as well. Many of you … Continue reading Preview: Hot Wheels Car Culture Team Transport Mix A
