MARVEL'S BLACK WIDOW

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

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

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

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.

1973 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA RS by Welly Diecast

Found this nice 911 on last Hot Wheels hunt.  Decent details and authentic colour and decals. Interior is nice and the model has working doors. Pull back mechanism works well and it run good on it's rubber tyres. Not bad!

RENAULT SPORT RS

The Renault Sport RS, this model is very cool. The colour here is a nice blue with retro orange and white decals and graphics. Fitted with wide spoke wheels which suit the car perfectly. The bright orange base of the model gives it an even more sporty look and the car passes easily as an endurance racer. The finish is a little rough in places on this model which is a shame, nice car though.

MOTOSAURUS

An extreme 'themed' Hot Wheel. This model is basically a stegosaurus with wheels. The model has rear exhausts, but no 'cockpit' or engine bay to speak of. So this model is for the playroom only. Not particularly collectable or desirable. Its paint job is quite good though and has good 'skin' detailing and the 'fins' are good quality. Buy it, but don't love it!

OFF DUTY

'Off Duty' from the 'City Work' series.
Nice looking 4x4 off roader a just a little chrome to give it the 'Hot Wheels' look. Details are good and the decals are very simple and cool. One for the collection but not out standing.



DODGE VIPER SRT10 ACR

Dodge Viper SRT10 ARC. 
One of our favourite cars faithfully reproduced by Hot Wheels. An awesome baby blue finish with sponsor decals and graphics. The finish on this particular model is a little disappointing, especially on the rear wing. However, we still love the overall look of the car and the five spoke grey wheels look great.
