After 5 years, the Hot Wheels Mclaren F1 GTR makes its triumphant return.

After a fair amount of clamoring by collectors, the McLaren F1 GTR returns.  You may all rejoice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzF_rjXE6RU And I'll join you in rejoicing.  Because not only is it back, but it looks tremendous.  Looking at it along with the other releases from Speed Machines and Decades, it is like the time gap never happened.

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. …

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 …
