Mig Rig

Modern twist on a classic rig. The chromed body looks incredible and is matched perfectly with yellow wheels. Another model with great close up details including tools in truck bed. Simple and subtle graphics and decals add a bit of class to the overall look.

Piledriver

We love this 'fantasy' Hot Wheel. The cool single seat layout is awesome and the colours and decals look great. The car has fantastic details on the interior, we especially like the 'Batman' style steering wheel. The five spoke wheels work well and the over size rear gives the car a strong stance. A lot of effort has gone into this model and it is a must for any collection.

'70 Chevelle SS Wagon

'70 Chevelle SS Wagon finished in red with cool retro 'stunt team' decals. Nice authentic model with good details and features. The eye catching use of dual colour wheels works well for the look of the car and the model sits slightly raised at the rear giving it a muscular stance. The model is quite heavy but runs well and is surprisingly fast.

Force Awakens Stormtrooper

OK, so the Hot Wheels 'movie cars' are not every collectors favourites, however, this model we think is pretty cool!
It has the look of a European Honda Civic R Type and the simple black and white is a classic combination. The iconic Stormtrooper armour is brilliantly detailed on this car and is instantly recognisable. Unlike many of the 'movie cars' this Hot Wheel looks very realistic and would like great in 'real life'.

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

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

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

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.

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.
