  20. Hot Wheels that intentionally "vary" from the final produced piece are known as variations, and many collectors specialize in them. One of our earliest and most notorious variations, a white Custom Camaro® EP, slipped out to market back in 1968. To recognize the variation craze and pay homage to the original, we offer this HWC Special Edition on 11/13/18. Part of the production process for Hot Wheels is the stage known as the Engineering Pilot, or EP, where a metal version of a new casting is painted a single color to reveal any potential flaws. These are not intended for sale, but rare quantities of the infamous white Custom Camaro wound up in stores! This new edition features an opening hood and Neo-Classics Redline wheels. The packaging has been created to look like a rough sketch rather than a finished version, meant to match the feel of this piece which has never been produced with the intention of selling -- until now. It may still be hard to get one, so grab it when you can! Production cars may vary from the photos shown. Mattel reserves the right to modify the color, decorations and wheel type. Specs: Features: Opening hood Body Color: Ransburg white over hand-polished chrome Body Type: ZAMAC Wheels: Neo-Classics Redline wheels Base: Full-metal, chrome-plated chassis and engine Window Color: Light blue-tinted Interior Color: Pearl white w/black steering wheel Packaging and Quantities: Packaged on a sketched replica 1968 blister card with an individually numbered sticker and metal collector button Each vehicle features an individually numbered sticker (xxxx/12,000) Availability: RLC Members (36-hour Priority Window): 11/13/18 at 9 a.m. PT until 11/14/18 at 9 p.m. PT HWC Account Holders (if not sold out): 11/15/18 at 9 a.m. PT Pricing and Purchase Limits: Priced at $19.99 plus shipping and processing; customers shipping to Canada may be required to pay an additional shipping charge (we do offer international shipping to some countries; for the list of available countries and more shipping options and information, click here) Limit of TWO (2) per RLC Membership On 11/15/18, unless sold out, there is a limit of TWO (2) per HWC Account, and RLC Members may purchase their limit of TWO (2) if they did not do so during the Priority Window (purchase limits subject to change after RLC Priority Window) Rewards Points for RLC Members (per purchase): 0 Refunds only, no exchanges
  21. By Gary Barnum and Tara Zucker Hot Wheels® Star Trek™: '64 Buick Riviera & Spock 1:64 Figure - $20 When the Star Trek™ series first blasted off into the stratosphere, the soon-to-be-famous actor who made Mr. Spock one of TV’s best known sci-fi characters rewarded himself by becoming the proud owner of a stellar ’64 Buick Riviera. So proud, in fact, that he posed for an iconic photo while dressed in full Starfleet uniform with his car on the back lot of the TV studio. Hot Wheels® proudly pays tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek with this 3D diorama featuring a beautiful Hot Wheels® edition of the Riviera in a full die-cast body and chassis, with Real Riders® wheels and a Mr. Spock figurine. It's a highly logical way to honor the milestone and the actor. This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 16, 2016 for subscribers only (Early Access), and from June 17 through June 26 for everyone else (All Access). Orders must be picked up in person at San Diego Comic-Con. This product won’t be for sale at the show, but you may have another opportunity to purchase this in July. Details on this and more to come.

    HWC Original 16 Cheetah Available on 7/31/18

    By Gary Barnum Based on a show car, the Cheetah was released by Hot Wheels as the "Python" in 1968. It was originally intended to be called the Cheetah—and now it is. Catch our HWC Original 16 edition if you can on 7/31/18. Not released since the first year of Hot Wheels, this is a major comeback after 50 years!
