HWC 2020 Red Line Club Memberships: Don’t Be Left Out!

By Gary Barnum

 

We know how much you want to be in the Red Line Club, and we want you to know we appreciate it. Our recent offer sold out faster than a Hot Wheels car reaches the end of the orange track, so we’re going to open more memberships for you! Be ready to join the 2020 Red Line Club on March 10, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. PT.

 

We’re going to offer members from 2019 a 36-hour Priority Window for renewal. After that, we’ll open any remaining memberships to everyone. You should note: there is a purchase limit of five memberships per household, and we take this very seriously. We will be auditing purchases to ensure that the first orders placed are renewals, and we’ll be watching for anyone who breaks the purchase limits. Our Agreement states that your membership may be revoked at our sole discretion if you are suspected of such behavior without refund. Don’t risk it.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Memberships are limited, and you are not guaranteed one will be available for you to purchase.

The Membership Kit:

The annual membership car is always special. For 2020, we present the Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34). The GT-R just celebrated its 50th anniversary, while the R34 just celebrated its 20th. So when you join the RLC in 2020, you’re joining at least two celebrations!

 

Specs:

  • Features: Opening hood
  • Body Color: Spectraflame purple
  • Deco: Authentic manufacturer logos
  • Body Type: ZAMAC
  • Wheels: Real Riders 6-spoke wheels
  • Base: Full-metal, matte-black-painted chassis and engine w/ painted details
  • Window Color: Light smoke-tinted
  • Interior Color: Black w/ painted details

 

Also included with your membership kit is a shiny 2020 RLC metal button featuring an image of the car in vintage Hot Wheels style, plus you’ll receive the 2020 RLC membership patch designed by our own Steve “HWC Van” Vandervate.

 

The Membership:

All the benefits below become part of your collecting experience when you join the 2020 RLC. You’ll get plenty of mileage from these!

 

HWC Cars Priority Window: RLC members get an exclusive Priority Window on most of our online sales. Only RLC members can place orders during this Priority Window. The length of the Priority Window will be announced for each sale, but it will not be less than 24 hours. Our cars frequently don't last past the Priority Window, so this is your best chance to pick up your favorites.

 

RLC Exclusive Cars: Many of the vehicles we release will only be offered to Red Line Club members, so make sure you join if want the exclusive opportunity to purchase certain items.

 

RLC sELECTIONs: We’ll add another edition to the thrilling and innovative series this year. Our sELECTIONs editions are chosen with direct input from RLC members! It's your chance to help us with the creation process — vehicle, color, and wheels. Only club members get to vote for these, and we only offer them to club members when they become available.

 

RLC Rewards Program: As a Red Line Club member, you will earn one Rewards Point per dollar spent on specified items in the Shop*. Watch for more details on this year’s Rewards program soon, but make sure you join now and start ordering merchandise to earn those Rewards Points.

 

Free Shipping: As an RLC member, you will receive free Standard Shipping on any order totaling $49 or more**! The more you purchase, the more you save.

 

 

Also, certain HWC site content is only for RLC eyes — you don't want to miss that kind of information.

 

So are you ready to step up your collecting game? Pick up your Red Line Club membership, and start getting serious about having fun with Hot Wheels!

im excited, but i hope the quality of the cars will be more consistent with less smudges and less dinks on the car. looking at the pictures above, you'd notice a dink on the front left fender and smudge on the right door. oh and also properly stuck tampos. my current r34's rear break lights isnt aligned well.. sigh

Last year the membership cost me between $65 and $70 Canadian with shipping. RLC cars run me about $55 with shipping for the rest of the year.

Would be nice if the “bitters” just didn’t join. Nobody is forcing them to join.

I have experienced exactly zero of the above named problems to any great extent whatsoever and was able to get every release I tried for. And with the Rewards program, I picked up pretty much whatever else I wanted as well.

 

I'm in for another great year.

So that's 2 for 2 so far of 2020 RLC items being 29.99 + Shipping. Seems to be the new trend.

 

In my opinion, the quality has gone up in terms of cool features that the cars have, so it makes sense, but still. Almost $40 per car. Ouch.
