There was a lot that came from the Hot Wheels Convention earlier this month. I've shown the gorgeous Convention models, as well as Mattel's 2019 Sneak Peak Presentation.

And there has been photos galore of those prototypes … Continue reading A Hot Wheels C10 Pickup that changes stance? Lambo with scissor doors? A 2019 RLC Preview with Hot Wheels Designer Brendon Vetuskey.
Would you look at that. Two years ago we had no Hot Wheels Econolines. Now we have two. I just wish Hot Wheels would do something other than JDM. Oh wait. Hot Wheels developed the Econoline for Pop Culture and Car Culture, and it has shown up in both, with a bonus 50th Favorites appearance. … Continue reading A Tale of Two: Hot Wheels Hi-Po Hauler & Ford Econoline Pickup
It has been several years in the making. First, Gas Monkey needed to make it. Then, Hot Wheels needed to replicate it. Now, we need to buy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuScQdo9tvA
The HWC Exclusive Datsun 240Z finally goes on sale today.

And second, the first big sale of 2018 was the RLC Car Culture Bundle.

I've decided to move from only hyping JDM to only hyping Gassers. At least for this minute. Don't expect anything but Gassers here on Lamley from here on out. Until the next post, but still. Lamley only hypes Gassers. They knock my socks off. And since I do, you can imagine how excited I was … Continue reading Lamley only hypes Gassers, so here is the Mercury Comet Cyclone from the RLC set
It is most certainly a phenomenon. Not entirely explainable, but then again most phenomena aren't. But the BRE 510 is a thing. It might create eye rolls from some, but there is no denying the two Hot Wheels 510's released with Brock Racing Enterprises racing livery are legendary Hot Wheels models.

You should do the same when the model … Continue reading The Hot Wheels HWC Original 16 Custom T-Bird goes on sale today. Here is what it will look like if you open it.
