07/12/2017 — The name of one New Model is preventing us from closing out the List of 2017 New Models, but that doesn’t mean we can’t move to 2018. Its the 50th Anniversary of Hot Wheels so you can expect to see some pretty cool things in the mainline starting with the New Models. 2018 is looking like it will be the year of the #Skyline as several castings are set to debut. With that said, our “In Progress” list will continue throughout the year keeping you up-to-date on the latest news on #2018 New Models. Here is what we have so far for you:

  1. got to meet richard rawlings at a meet and greet at foxwoods casino…he says theres gunna be a recolor of the midas monkey in blue and the gas monkey rlc should be out around christmas

  2. Is it OK if we post wishlists on here? Or is that best suited for the hot wheels wikia?

  3. Does anybody know if the Gas Monkey Garage hi-po Hauler is still being released sometime in 2018? I heard there were contract issues but I also heard that they were going to release it late this year. If anybody is looking for the gas monkey garage corvettes in both colors I have been able to find multiple of each at Marino’s in Chicagoland Area of course after I paid 10 dollars a piece for them online. Happy to have more then one of each tho. Any Insider info?

    • Representatives from Mattel have stated the Hi-Po Hauler will not go on sale until late summer, early fall… which I personally equate to somewhere around September. No contract issues that I have heard of — as that most likely was squared away before production even began.
