  1. By Gary Barnum Your Hot Wheels may not need motor oil to reach the end of the track, but the cars and trucks that inspire them certainly do. At least anything with an internal combustion engine. Fortunately, several motor oil brands have kept the automotive world greased for as long as more than a century. We pay homage to Vintage Oil with our fourth and final Pop Culture mix of 2020. Agip – In the mid 1920s, Sinclair Oil and the Italian government split the profits of Sicilian oil. A critic of this private venture was killed and, in 1926, the public Azienda Generale Italiana Petrol

  8. By Gary Barnum Launching nationwide on April Fool’s Day in 1979, Nickelodeon became the first cable channel aimed at kids. Since then, the channel has not only spawned spinoff channels, but it has consistently raised generations of kids on fun and exciting animated programs – some original, and some based on properties which came with their own fan bases. Hot Wheels honors some of Nickelodeon’s greatest stars with our first mix of Animation Character cars for 2021. You like to watch them – now you can collect them!

    Star Wars 2020 Starships Mix 4!

    By Allen Voivod Sand, as one desert planet native might tell you, is coarse and rough, and it gets everywhere.

  12. By Gary Barnum Unbelievable! That would be your reaction to a row of cars like these if you saw them on the street. With the fourth mix of our Hot Wheels Boulevard series, it’s like a fantasy garage parade.

Earlier this year, the third mix of Studio Character Cars featured iconic heroes, villains, and scoundrels from Star Wars™. For the sixth mix in this series, we return to a galaxy far, far away. Speaking of sequels, many of the castings in this mix honor Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™, the 1980 sequel to the very first movie in the franchise, Star Wars: A New Hope™.
