In the Team Hot Wheels "High Speed Wheels" line, we apparently get a New Model! In this video, I compare this new Custom '12 Ford Mustang model to the Custom '11 Camaro as well as to the Honda S2000. I also compare the Baja Truck to the Toyota Off-Road Truck.
To round out the video, I show all four variations in the Team Hot Wheels "Driver Picks" line.
'68 El Camino is a re-packaged 2011 HW Main Street Release but that version had a chrome engine. This version doesn't have chrome on the engine
Volkswagon Type 181 was a 2011 faster Than Ever release with FTE2 copper colored wheels. This release has FTE2 wheels with silver wheels.
Camaro Convertible Concept was another 2011 faster Than Ever Series car but last year's version was copper FTE2 while this one has silver FTE1 wheels.
Finally, the Fish'd & Chip'd was a 2011 Heat Fleat with MC5 wheels. It is released exactly the same in these Team Hot Wheels "Driver Picks" packs EXCEPT that we are also finding original Open Hole 5 Spokes (FTE) wheels variations! I have been looking for weeks for this variation and I finally found ONE. It does seem to be a pretty short release.

May 2012, New Team Hot Wheels releases (High Speed Wheels)
Diecasttvchannel in New Zealand got the new releases of the Team Hot Wheels
"High Speed Wheels" about a week ago and now they land in the U.S. I found
them at Target. But first. I show another Mystery Model purchase. These are
found at Walmarts in the U.S. and they cost about the same as the
single-carded Hot Wheels.
I also show one of the known variations in the $1.29 Team Hot Wheels
single-packs. You know, the ones with the regular basic cars packaged on
special Team Hot Wheels "Driver Picks" cards. Almost all of those cars are
common releases but there have been at least four variations found. In this
video, I show you the no-chrome engine variation of the '68 El Camino.
As for the Team Hot Wheels "High Speed Wheels" that I picked up, some of
these I have shown in previous videos but since they were on sale at
Target, I bought an extra. Models shown in this video are the Nissan 370Z,
Torque Twister, Lotus Concept, Bad To The Blade, 4Ward Speed, Ballistik,
'12 Ford Fiesta (Ken Block), Baja Truck, Custom '12 Ford Mustang and a Sneak Peak of an
upcoming "Street Noz" motorcycle.
New Matcbox 9-Pack with Superlift Ford 350 Super Duty
Sure, the exclusive police car is nice but the Superlift Ford 350 Super
Duty is awesome! The Superlift will be available in the single packs but
this is the first time that I have seen it in person. As for the other
9-packs that I did not purchase, the model in the upper right-hand corner
is exclusive to the set. The other models in the sets are found in the
singles or other releases such as 5-packs
