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.
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
Track Time! Bad To The Blade vs 4Ward Speed
First time ever! Bad To The Blade and 4Ward Speed were brand new cars and
their first appearance was in the Team Hot Wheels product line. Let's see
which one is the fastest in a downhill gravity race!

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.
Off The Pegs: 2012 Tomica 2-Packs (Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Toyota)

that these packs are $7.99 each. Here are the 2-pack combinations shown in
Mitsuoka Orochi and Subaru Legacy B4
Nissan Juke and Mitsubishi Triton
Mazda RX-8 (Police Car) and Hino Fire Truck
Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
Mitsubishi i-Miev and Toyota Prius
Suzuki Swift Sport and Mitsubishi Pajero
Nissan Diesel (Penguin Truck) with Isuzu Highway Bus

New Models, Modern Automobiles 2011 Hot Wheels Year In Review
This video comprises the 2011 New Models that were based on authentic cars
from after 1990. Check my other videos for the 2011 New Models that were
based on real cars older than 1990 as well as the 2011 Fantasy New Models.
The above link is for my 2011 Year In Review playlists. Every single basic
car that was released in 2011 including Super Treasure Hunts! They came
from the 2011 Master Set that Mattel released at the end of the year.
Trick Tracks See Saw Slam
I contacted somebody at Mattel and what probably happened is that one of
the sets were intended for an international market. I checked eBay and
there is somebody in the U.K. selling Rockin' Rampage and I see Sellers in
the U.S. with See Saw Slam. So maybe Mattel couldn't use the name "See Saw
Slam" in the U.K. because somebody else had a trademark on the name or
maybe See Saw Slam might mean something offensive in some markets.
Here are my videos for the other Trick Track stunts shown in this video:

New BOOSTED Wall Tracks Mid-Air Madness
Pardon me, but since this track set is unique in that it is the first time
that the Wall Tracks system as a Booster on it, I decided to give a nice long
review! Lots of track time!
Hot Wheels Case Code 2012 GGG Factory Sealed Case
In my ongoing unboxing of each Case Code for the 2012 model year, the
contents of this case are not surprising because many Walmart Stores got
Dump Bins with 'G' cases. So thankfully, I got some of the cars that were
not present when I ran into a Dump Bin earlier this March.

C Cases at Walmart! Look for EXTRA bins around the store.
