Street Beasts (2017 New Model): MOTOSAURUS

In what may be the funkiest Hot Wheels vehicle of the year, the #2017 New Models #Motosaurus blends two facets of kids’ culture — dinosaurs and Hot Wheels. Don’t think I haven’t noticed some of you collectors picking this up with your #2017 Hot Wheels “L” case assortment […]

The odd duck of the 2017 #Walmart Exclusive, #Hot Wheels Racing Circuit series is certainly the #Deora II.

Street Beasts (2017 New Model): HOTWEILER

Woof! …has been the reaction by a lot collectors towards most of the fantasy cars Hot Wheels has produced as of late. While you can’t fault the collectors who love real looking vehicles with minimal graphics, you have to realize the Hot Wheels mainline is as diverse of […]

Super Chromes: GAZELLA GT

Can you ever have too much chrome? Simply put, yes you can. But I don’t believe that to be the case with this year’s 10-car #Super Chromes (2017) series. The #Dmitriy Shakhmatov Designed #Gazella GT is a great example of what this series is all about. Debuting in […]
