Two eye catching Hot Wheels models for 2018

I do not collect HW at all, but more pick up the castings that I like. If I saw a Redline or Treasure Hunt model, I would just open them – I seriously have no clue as to values, etc. Two models for 2018 immediately have caught my attention. I know that the news has…

Hot Wheels – The Simpsons Family Car

I haven’t watched The Simpsons for years. But it is still a very funny programme, with the ever stupid Homer Simpson being the anti-hero, Bart, Lisa and Maggie having never aged in 27-odd seasons. The transport of the Simpson family has now been re-created as a Hot Wheels model. The images below show what the…

Hot Wheels – 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL Race Car

If Hot Wheels make this sort of thing as standard as opposed to the generic crap they normally like to produce, I would be a happy collector. Such is the difficulty in getting hold of this model, it actually hails from Melbourne, Australia – so a 12000km journey back to CH!. Why this model tugs…

Slightly embarrassing , isn’t it Mattel

I am slightly amazed that Majorette has managed to secure all these licensing deals, when Mattel has just about got its act together and got Daimler AG to sign……. Majorette seem to be releasing these castings with relative ease – Mattel……well, you know the score with getting a casting out. More to the point, Majorette…

This offer from Boost at Westfield Bondi Junction, Australia proves the point: We keep hearing from the…

Hot Wheels 2016 Ford Focus RS

I am just going to park this one here. Why the bloody hell are Matchbox arsing about with some daft 1950’s Americana when they could have had this in the stable. That corporate bellend Jason Horowitz seems to have ensured that HW get all the best castings over Matchbox – after all, he is greasing…

Hot Wheels 2015 Dodge Charger SRT

I have a soft spot for Dodge cars, as they really do their best to somewhat remember the classic vehicles of the past. No idea why I bought this one though…… This is a customisers dream – there is so much blank space to ensure that the detailing could be taken to the next level…
