Dodge Viper

The classic Dodge Viper, brilliantly recreated by Hot Wheels. Finished in snow white with double blue racing stripes. The small decals are subtle but look good. The model sits on large double five spoke wheels that give the car a strong 'muscle' stance. Great little model.

Sky Fi. This futuristic helicopter looks awesome. The open cockpit has great close up detail and the design is not too unbelievable. The pastel blue colour is OK, but with the 'police' decals, we think it needs to be a darker blue or red. Cool chromed engines and cockpit work well with the whit eunder carriage. Nice model.

H2GO. This outstanding Hot Wheel is a must for all collections. OK, it's a boat but it has a classic Hot Wheel graphic design and the colour combination screams Hot Wheels. Nicely made with great details, including the interior. Looks very authentic and the kids love it.

Terrain Storm from the 'Snow Stormers' series. With 'movable' suspension, this Hot Wheel is nicely made. The colour looks great and is very eye catching. The 'off road' details work well and they include and spare wheel mounted on the rear. The chunky grey wheels fit the truck perfectly and the graphics look great.

OK, so we don't usually go for these 'movie tie in' Hot Wheels, but this one is pretty cool. Looks similar to a European Lotus Elise. The close up details are very nice with good use of transparent red parts. The gold lights and side pod details work well and the low stance of the car give it a sporty look. Nice model.


Bone Speeder. Very cool design Hot Wheel with 'glow' wheels. The Bone Shaker series is a must for an collection and this version is one of the best. The open cockpit looks great and the interior detail is awesome. The over size five spoke wheels look great and give the car a more powerful stance. Love the colour, nice and simple but works really well.

Fast Fish. The only thing about this Hot Wheel that isn't cool, is the name! Apart from that this is one awesome model. The details are fantastic, from the slick and mean looking front grill to the transparent engine cover. The colour is a deep and metallic racing green with white and gold stripes and graphics. Red rims on the wheels look good also and finish the overall look very well. The rear is raised slightly to give the car a more 'muscle' appearance.

Mercedes AMG GT. Nice model with very good details all over it. Nice choice of wheel that really fits the look of the car. Unsure about the colour on this one. Would prefer a black or grey. The finish on this one is once again quite bad. Have noticed that a lot of new models seem to have been 'rushed' out the factory and the paint jobs are rough and poorly finished.

1996 Nissan 180SX Type X.
A classic Nissan authentically reproduced by Hot Wheels. The retro graphics fit the age the model perfectly and the twin 5 spoke wheels look great. Great details all over the car with a nice interior also.
