Yes, Hot Wheels is making a Volvo 850 Estate. Here is a little background from Designer Ryu Asada.

I have to think it gives Hot Wheels Designers a little sense of satisfaction when they see a reaction like the one given to this sneak peek: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByDxLpBjlRf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link I am sure you saw it, but how rad was the reaction to Hot Wheels doing a 90's Volvo Wagon? Man how things have changed, and man … Continue reading Yes, Hot Wheels is making a Volvo 850 Estate. Here is a little background from Designer Ryu Asada.

Hot Wheels L Case Highlights, including a trio of fantastic new models

The last couple of cases seemed to tell us Hot Wheels was closing up shop for 2019, giving us recolors and a random new model. And then BAM! A Class, Lamborghini, and one hell of a Panamera. So a video of the highlights first, and photos coming (you'll see on the video I've already taken … Continue reading Hot Wheels L Case Highlights, including a trio of fantastic new models

I sense a pattern. Plain white New Models are taking over Hot Wheels in 2019.

Honestly 2019 has been a magical year for Hot Wheels New Models. I can't remember a year where such a wide variety of models has been introduced. And on top of that, the amount of clean, stock looks with only front and rear decos. When the Lamley Award voting starts - sooner than you think … Continue reading I sense a pattern.

Case Report: Hot Wheels 2019 L Case

After this, four cases left. Lots of Case Reports (International & US), but only four assortments. This one is really nice. Mid-year it seemed there were lots of New Model recolors, but this one is full of all kinds of new stuff. As always, our friends at Wheel Collectors grabbed a case at random, and … Continue reading Case Report: Hot Wheels 2019 L Case

Hot Wheels K Case is hitting Walmarts along with the next group of Zamacs

My friend and local Utah collectors Mike shared this on IG today: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxslolSJsZ0/?igshid=19sbz5k66ygtj It is nice to see the Zamacs being released more widely this year. Last year was sparse to say the least. Mike mentioned the next guy. I am kind of that guy, because he picked up a set for me. As soon … Continue reading Hot Wheels K Case is hitting Walmarts along with the next group of Zamacs

Opening – and thoroughly digging – the Hot Wheels x Supreme Team Transport

Why the hate? The response from collectors when the Hot Wheels x Supreme Team Transport collaboration was a bit surprising. Sure, there were many who asked what Supreme was. That's normal. But I am not talking about that. Most of you know what I am talking about. I am sure after this post has been … Continue reading Opening – and thoroughly digging – the Hot Wheels x Supreme Team Transport

What is the future of Hot Wheels collecting when there is a good chance the blisters won’t last?

I think everyone is pretty aware that the bulk of my Hot Wheels/Matchbox collection is loose. I've always preferred the models out of package, obviously to photograph, but also to display. As nice as some of the card art is, displaying all the cards together can look like a big jumbled mess. Aesthetically, loose is … Continue reading What is the future of Hot Wheels collecting when there is a good chance the blisters won’t last?

The ‘89 Porsche 944 Turbo joins the 22b in the 2020 Hot Wheels Mainline

Crazy to think we are in the home stretch for the Hot Wheels 2019 Mainline. 2020 is just around the corner and the Design Team is started to drop the sneaks. Last week it was the Subaru WRX STi 22b, this week it is this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxbvA6-D_BM/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=qsmx44awnqzy Obviously this is an early unpainted prototype, but based … Continue reading The ‘89 Porsche 944 Turbo joins the 22b in the 2020 Hot Wheels Mainline
