2004 First Editions: ’69 DODGE CHARGER

If you’re a fan of #First Edition Hot Wheels castings, the #2004 First Editions were great because the series featured 100 brand-new castings — well, 101 if you count the mail-in Volkswagen Drag Truck. Even if you weren’t a fan of the ‘Tooned, Blings, Hardnoze, Fatbax and Crooze castings, […]

2004 First Editions: C6 CORVETTE

2004 was known as the year of the “Hot 100” as Hot Wheels released 100 First Editions into the Hot Wheels mainline — well, 101 if you count the mail-in bonus Volkswagen Drag Truck. Among the Hot 100 were ‘Tooned vehicles which were castings with exaggerated features. While these […]

Night Breed 5-Pack: TOYOTA CELICA

We’ve reach the summit of #Night Breed Week here at Diecast Motorsports. This series has been great and has spawned several other future ideas. We conclude #Night Breed Week with the car I feel is the pinnacle of the Night Breed 5-Pack, the Toyota Celica. I eluded to […]

Night Breed 5-Pack: FORD FOCUS

Ahhhh, the Ford Focus–the lone-wolf of the Night Breed 5-Pack. While its seemingly unclear of the Hot Wheels Marketing Department’s intentions behind including this pro-stock car in a 5-Pack with 4 other tuner-style cars, it does look great in that Spectrafrost Red. It looks so good that we […]

Night Breed 5-Pack: 24/SEVEN

The second car in our #Night Breed Week-long series is the 24/Seven. An unlicensed Hot Wheels casting designed by Dave Weise that takes some strong design cues from a 1990s Mazda RX-7. It is believed the “Seven” in the second-half of the name is a nod to the […]
