  9. What's better than our annual Hot Wheels poster? How about five of 'em! Our 2013 Hot Wheels Poster comes in four parts, plus one. We bet you're wondering why… Here’s the deal. We know a lot of you love to collect the variations, and we issue several color variations of our cars each year -- but they never show up on the poster. This year, we thought it would be nice to get as many of the color variations in as possible. But that's a lot of cars for one poster! We found that four posters would be just right to hold all the slick shots of our 2013 line. For now, we're offering Parts 1 and 2. We'll be back later with Parts 3 and 4 (some of our cars are still being finalized…). And for those of you who prefer to have 'em all on one sheet, we'll even be offering one of those later. The first two posters are ready now, so get your hobby in high gear! Simply follow this link for poster ordering instructions: Order My Posters! Offer expires December 31, 2013 or when supplies run out, so order yours now! Price is $3.50; tax may apply in some states. Please allow 8-10 weeks for delivery. Void where prohibited by law. Valid only in the U.S.

  23. Every year, we create entertainment-themed vehicles to commemorate the granddaddy convention of them all, San Diego Comic-Con. This year, of course, is no different and we’ve got your first look at the two cars for 2014! Hot Wheels® The Homer ($30) Hot Wheels® proudly presents The Homer from everyone’s favorite animated comedy, “The Simpsons.” This vehicle is a faithful reproduction in awesome collectible packaging of the Homer Simpson-designed car “that’s everything the average man ever dreamed of!” Hot Wheels® Aston Martin DB5 ($20) It’s the movie car that became almost as famous as 007 himself! This detailed Hot Wheels® version of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 comes with a special spy-catching deco and a Comic-Con package that you won’t want to miss. So how can you get these rad little rides for your very own? They’ll be available for pre-order from our friends at MattyCollector.com on June 24 for pickup at San Diego Comic-Con and available for purchase at the show. Not going to SDCC? That’s okay, we’ve got you covered! We’ll have a limited quantity available right here at HotWheelsCollector.com later this summer so be sure to check back for details.
