Your Nationals ticket includes a lot of fun: buy, sell, and swap Hot Wheels — both rare and common from all eras — with plenty of other collectors. And don't miss the following activities:

  • Room-to-room selling and trading
  • Autograph sessions (Mattel Hot Wheels staff, both former and current)
  • Custom Car Contest
  • Seminars (Customizing, Redlines Collecting, Variations)
  • Downhill & Sizzlers Racing
  • Children’s Activities (Scavenger Hunt, Custom Car Design, Coloring Contest, and more)
  • Saturday Finale (Guest speaker and Q&A with Mattel, plus Finale car)
  • Sunday Hot Wheels Toy Show (Open to the public – over 75 vendor tables, autographs, raffles, and more)

 

Here are the optional special events you don’t want to miss (tickets for these events are sold separately in advance):

  • “Evening with Manson Cheung” Dinner – Thursday, April 4: Is he back from the future? Manson Cheung designed the DeLorean casting for Hot Wheels, among other popular pieces. Dinner guests will receive a souvenir dinner car (produced by Mattel, limited to no more than 4,000 pieces), T-shirt, patch, and more.
  • HWC Vending Machine: Pulling for some great Hot Wheels merchandise? It's exciting to see what comes out of this magical machine!

 

Help others when you help yourself to more Hot Wheels activities. Advance tickets are required; visit the Nationals website for availability as these may not be sold out. And there's always a winner; your generous participation benefits the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals:

  • Button Bingo
  • No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament
  • Hot Wheels Convention Mania Game

 

And every show attendee is welcome to bid on special Hot Wheels items at the Charity Auction during the show (no advance tickets required for this).

It might be cold or windy, but don't worry — Hot Wheels will warm you up!

 

Items and dates subject to change. Production cars may vary from the photos shown. Mattel reserves the right to modify the color, decorations and wheel type.

there should be those two at the Sunday show. Attendees get in an hour early and buy extras for themselves and others since the limit is 3 per person the week of the Nationals.
