Recently I was asked by the Mattel Creations team at Mattel to write an article that reflected back on the 20+ years of the Red Line Club and HotWheelsCollectors.com for the RLC 20th Anniversary. I was also asked to give my TOP 3 HWC/RLC releases of all-time. While my favorites often change on a week-to-week basis, I pick 3 of the most impactful releases of the last 20 years.
You can view the article on HotWheelsCollectors.com (Mattel Creations) now: 20 Years of RLC by Brad Bannach.
In the HWC article I cover how I initially found HotWheelsCollector.com and how it impacted my collecting as a chance to connect with other collectors around the world 24/7. I also cover how HWC (and the RLC) have evolved over the last 20 years from the “we still make them like we used to” early days to sELECTIONs, Pink “party cars”, the “mirrorized era”, and the last couple of years where opening parts and innovation have been at the forefront of an ultra-premium product.
Please take the time to read the full article and let me know in the comments there what you think!
