The Hot Wheels Time Shifter joins the Time Attaxi.

My job here was to show both.  Your job is, if you can, to help me and the rest of the readers to understand the myriad of influences that have gone into these two. Have at it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqV1dbgryS4

This is the era of Nissan GT-R 1/64 overload. And the new Hot Wheels version tells me I am not sick of it one bit.

I don't blame any 1/64 collector who is a bit tired of the Nissan GT-R.  For the last few years it has been everywhere.  The first US batch of Majorette has two, Kyosho has dedicated entire releases to it (including one this fall), and Tomica Limited Vintage will have released over 15 (more I think, …

#lamleydaily - July 4, 2017 Model: Hot Wheels '76 Greenwood Corvette Line: 2012 HW Racing ROADRCR Where to get it: Hot Wheels ROADRCR Greenwood Corvette on ebay Why it's in the collection:  This specific model, the ROADRCR Greenwood Vette, in my opinion, is one of the best models Hot Wheels has EVER done.  Seriously.  It …

What Drag Bus? The go-to Hot Wheels VW Buses are now the Kool Kombi and T2 Pickup. (And that T1 Panel eventually.)

The Kool Kombi gets hoarded.  It is the first model to get snagged.  It isn't that familiar with the pegs because it never hangs out that long on them. The VW T2 Pickup gets hoarded.  It is the first model to get snagged.  It isn't that familiar with the pegs because it never hangs out …

As is the Custom: An evening in Las Vegas with master customizer Pisut Masanong. by Jay Kho

A few weeks ago, I learned that Pisut Masanong was going to be in Las Vegas for a few days.  If you read this blog, or are part of the diecast community on Instagram, or follow the Hot Wheels Design Team, you know who he is.  Let me refresh your memory: https://www.instagram.com/p/BUrCEsRgw7H/?taken-by=masanong https://www.instagram.com/p/BU-IjCQlBXr/?taken-by=hotwheelsdreamteam https://www.instagram.com/p/BUhOVtGlmNn/?taken-by=hotwheelsdreamteam I …

Hot Wheels Entertainment Batch C aka “that assortment with the R34 Skyline GT-R” is now out.

A heads up that Hot Wheels Entertainment Batch C is out, and Wheel Collectors has it: Hot Wheels Entertainment Batch C at Wheel Collectors I have heard rumors that this is a 5-model set, but all I remember is the Nissan R34 Skyline.  It's blue and it is from a movie about cars that go …

The Hot Wheels Target Red Editions aren’t the Zamacs, but they can be.

I love the Walmart Zamacs.  That is no secret.  I have dedicated quite a few blog features to them.  Going unpainted on several basic models a year is really a brilliant idea, and the cross section of models used makes for a great little collection.  I am happy I started collecting them from the beginning. …

Mad Mike Whiddet’s pickup is a great debut for the Hot Wheels Mazda REPU.

It was back in September of last year that Hot Wheels let the secret out the Mazda REPU was in development.  Call it JDM hype or whatever, but a Mazda Rotary Pickup was most welcome.  Like any pickup really.  Like the Datsun 620, or Toyota 4x4, or the '83 Silverado.  You know why?  Because pickups …

Lamley Preview: 2017 Hot Wheels HWC Series 14 Real Riders Drag Dairy

Hey weren't we doing this two weeks ago? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqzfG6cEvaE It's Monday evening and another RLC model goes on sale tomorrow.  Like it did two weeks ago.  And two weeks before that.  Not bad.  I think I remember times like that as an RLC member. Mix in the shipment of membership Gassers, and RLC is on …

Speedhunters wanders into Hot Wheels Design, sees some stuff.

Petrolicious a few weeks ago, Larry Chen and Speedhunters now.  Another cool behind the scenes article for collectors to scour: Speedhunters: Behind Closed Doors at Hot Wheels You can just see Jun saying "Larry, shoot this, post it, and watch the collectors go batshit crazy.  It's fun."  Some of these photos are most surely sent …

The Completists: Antonio De Abreu’s massive Hot Wheels Custom 62 Chevy Pickup collection and customs.

I have mentioned a few times that I like to do features like this.  I focus mainly on the "diecast" of diecast collecting, but it is also really interesting to focus on the "collecting" as well. We all collect differently, and there really is no wrong way to do it.  Opened, carded, one casting, one …
