A lot has been going on in the last couple of weeks. N cases have been added along with the latest round of Pop Culture and Cool Classics. There is also 2 new 5-packs and it seems the gold wheels that replaces the yellow wheels on 5-packs are a short run and have gone back to yellow. Found another Workshop Custom Design Kit 3 graphic design play set containing a green Shoe Box.
Just received my San Diego Comic Con releases and had to share pictures of the cars loose.
Just found at Target!
Purple Passion fans might want to be on the look out for this Workshop kit. There are two kits available, Kit 2 includes a pearl white Purple Passion with red 5 spokes, purple interior and purple windows. The other car in Kit 2 is a pearl white Muscle Tone with yellow 10 spokes red interior and clear windows. Kit 1 includes a Pearl white Cool one and a pearl white Surfin’ School Bus. The cars in these sets are void of any graphics so you can decorate the cars with the special decal sheets. Color Reveal decals sheets are included to apply the cars and with a special pen you can reveal the design. Check out the playset page for more.
The latest Sneak Peek for the 28th Annual Hot Wheels® Collectors Convention blew us away. The Mystery Machine in ZAMAC with orange chrome Real Riders. One of 2400 made. Come to the Convention to get yours.
It’s been a while since we have seen any variations with 5-packs. This year that all changed. The first car that came to our attention was the X-Games 2008 Lancer Evolution which went from blue chrome to chrome 10 spokes. Now it seems that all cars that have blue chrome on the wheels either on the whole wheel or just the rim are now switching to chrome. With this in mind we started to look at other cars in 5-packs and we found all the yellow “painted” wheels are switching to gold chrome. Currently we are working on a complete list of 5-pack car that have changed so far. Check the variations on the 5-pack page.
Now for some sad news for Mustang fan. A long time favorite model the ’65 Mustang Convertible has yielded to the cost saving butcher. The ’65 no longer has an opening hood feature or a metal base. Hopefully this change will only happen on 5-pack and mainline and will retain it’s original tooling for premium lines.

When Mattel puts their mind to it, it can produce the best all diecast model around. The latest Retro Entertainment series is the case in point. The quality of the three new models in this series proves my point. Just by looking at them you know they are Hot Wheels® cars, the quality of the design, the weight, and the attention to details are far more impressive than other diecast out there. Check out all the Retro Entertainment release so far this year.
