Hot Wheels RLC Chameleon 240Z: You need to order it. You need to open it.

Today, 9am Pacific, another RLC frenzy ignites. The Hot Wheels Redline Club really has been nothing but fire this year, and now it changes color. If you are an RLC member, you don't need me to tell you to be on your computer, phone, tablet, abacus, etch-a-sketch, or whatever you use to order models this …

Bugatti makes its triumphant return to Hot Wheels with the brilliant Chiron.

It doesn't disappoint. The new Hot Wheels Bugatti Chiron is in hand and truly spectacular. The Chiron was undoubtedly going to cause a frenzy when it was first unveiled by Ryu Asada and the Hot Wheels Design Team. A Bugatti is a big deal in all aspects, large or small. The king of hypercars has …

Another overlooked Tomica Limited Vintage: Toyota Townace Wagon 1800 Custom EX

Here is another TLV from the collection that hopefully makes you smile. As a refresher, I am essentially grabbing TLV's from my collection at random and showing them here, just to give those new to the brand an idea of what TLV is all about. Mainly TLV is about realism, quality, and true scale. No …

The surprisingly spectacular Hot Wheels Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

Before we dive in, let me clarify that title. This is obviously a feature on the new Hot Wheels Panamera, and we are lucky to have a few thoughts from the Hot Wheels Designer who spearheaded this one, but why is it surprising? Lots of reasons. First, the actual car is surprisingly cool. I’ll say …

How about another non-Ferrari Tomica Limited Vintage: Mitsubishi Galant GTO 2000 GSR

I'm having too much fun just staring at my Tomica Limited Vintage wall display trying to figure out what models to shoot for this blog. The purpose is to jump a little deeper into TLV, flying right past the Ferraris, RX-7s, and 787b's that have demanded so much attention. But I haven't gotten that deep. …

Another Tomica Limited Vintage model not called Ferrari: Toyota Celica 1800GT-T

Moving to the next model in my random perusal through my Tomica Limited Vintage collection. Consider this another dart to throw at the dartboard to see what sticks. It all sticks for me. Tomica Limited Vintage can’t do a model I won’t collect, because the fun is in the various directions it goes, from the …

Your non-Ferrari, non-Skyline, non-Honda Tomica Limited Vintage Model of the Day: Seibu Keisatsu Nissan Gloria Police

So here is my fear with a post title like the one above. Many of you won't read this and throw our your "all these fanboys who only want to scalp the Ferraris and Civics! That is what is wrong with the hobby" comments. That is NOT what this post is about. Remember I try …

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 …

Some Supers just stand out more than others. That is the case with the ’69 Corvette Racer.

Remember when collectors were complaining that most of the Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunts were red? It was true. A lot of them were. Things have changed a bit. Hot Wheels introduced a new spectraflame paint for Supers this year, and not only does it look good, but it has allowed for more colors. Browns …
