10/1/2018 — For the last several years, the Hot Wheels has teamed up with the HW Mexico Collectors Convention organizers to produce a limited edition Hot Wheels car. Last year it was the ’71 Datsun Bluebird 510 Wagon in acrylic case (also available for convention in Brazil), the year before that it was the ’66 Batmobile. The fact of the matter is, the casting selection has just about always been great with other years choices to the likes of the Texas Drive ‘Em, Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and ’55 Chevy Panel.
This year, the convention takes place December 8-9, 2018 in Mexico City. The exclusive vehicle will be the Volkswagen Beetle in white, with red fenders and green/red graphics. While I don’t have a picture of it to share, you can go to the convention’s web page and view/pre-order it now. It is priced at $25.00 (+$5.99 shipping) for buyers in the United States. It comes in an acrylic case (w/ cover) and has a total of 6,000 units. Get yours today >>> hwmexicocollector.com
UPDATE 10/11/2018 — Richard (from the Mexico convention) had a sample of the Volkswagen Beetle in his room at the LA convention.
Well, the website seemed sketchy but I ordered mine. Hopefully I’ll see it eventually
Man, I hope I get mine, I ordered three.
I know what you mean. I was timid the first time I ordered a couple years back, but Richard Zauceda (guy that ships these out) always comes through.
Thanks Brad! Do you know an estimated date when they will be getting shipped?
Traditionally, they get shipped a week or two after the Mexico convention… so mid-December?
Done and done. Don’t even have to think twice about this- thanks for the heads up Brad!
You’re welcome, Steve!
Glad to help, Brian.
Always ordered from them,never a problem. A++
As someone new to HW collecting, would it be worth it to purchase one and re-sell later? Not sure if they are a sought after item?
You’ll always hear me say, “buy what YOU like, don’t worry about future resale value” … thats the way I collect. Not telling you that I am right… just saying, its helped me enjoy this hobby for over 20 years.
Thanks Brad! Was contemplating purchasing this VW and reselling to make a little cash to support my purchasing of cars I am currently interested in (ie. Tesla and Range Rover). I will stick to what I like 🙂
That is how everyone should think about this hobby.
Thanks for sharing!
Hello, I just have a question Brad. when you pre-order these does it take the money at the time of purchase or does it not deduct it from your bank account until it’s been shipped? Just something I was curious about. (Love the website btw it’s been very informative since I stumbled upon it a few months back 😉 )
Hey Kaelan. It deducts the money from your PayPal immediately. Thanks for the kind words!
Ok thank you and your very welcome 🙂
My order is in-thanks for the info….
Hello can you tell me when will she ship? Thank you
Mid December, after the Mexico Convention
Hello there! Tell me, please, do they deliver orders all over the world? And what if they ship only to the USA, but I already paid for the order?
I am unsure what the process is outside the U.S., Sorry.
where does it say only 6,000 units will be produced?
There was a sign that said it. Only 500 sold online to US buyers…. confirmed with the event organizer in LA.
Thanks for sharing this info 👍👍👍

Sold out via the site. Going to have to buy on secondary sales sites now.
When will they start shipping?
I got a notification that mine has shipped already.
