Sto&Go's and Pop 'N Play's were Mattel's play systems that started in the
80's. Long before Hot Wheels World. Let's check out this simple playset
that can be collapsed so that you could stow and go!

Hot Wheels Motorcycles. Now With Riders!
I picked them up in July, 2012 and they were under $3 USD each. Do you
collect motorcycles? Which ones will you be looking for? It is pretty cool
that Hot Wheels finally put riders on their 1:64 scale basic Hot Wheels
motorcycles! I don't particularly collect bikes but I like having something
from each release for my collection. I mentioned my son's Wall of Hot
Wheels. You can see that video here:
For this first batch, they used the Fright Bike, OCC Splitback, Dodge
Tomahawk, Ducati 1098R, and the HW450F (also known as Wastelander). That is
three licensed models and two fantasy creation.
Mattel has other motorcycles in their tool bank. I wonder if any of these
would be used in the future?
Fantasy models: Airy 8, Scorchin' Scooter, Blast Lane, Bad Bagger, Pit
Cruiser, W-oozie, Canyon Carver, Hammer Sled, and the Boss Hoss.
Realistic models: Harley Davidson Fat
In case you're wondering if there are any three-wheelers in the basics,
these come to mimnd: Tri & Stop Me and Outsider. Personally, I don't
consider the Outsider to be a bike but the Tri & Stop Me would be pretty
cool to have a rider =)

Old Stock And New Tred Shredder
With Mattel apparently dumping the rest of their 2012 model year case
assortments into dump bins/shippers at USA Walmart, Ralphs and Kroger
stores, what basic cars are you picking up?
What Should I Collect?
I often get this question from viewers. They ask ME what do I think that
THEY should collect. My response will always be, 'buy what you like". This
way, if you liked it when you bought it, they you will be happier with your

long card packages. Hopefully, there will be a Treasure Hunt, a Super

Is The 2013 SWAT Truck A Treasure Hunt?
Mattel no longer uses a green stripe on the card to designate its Hot
Wheels Treasure Hunt series. It doesn't even say Treasure Hunt on the
package. Now, Mattel uses a circle-flame logo to designate its basic
Treasure Hunts. That logo has been in existence since around 2007. In this
video, I give my answer to whether or not I believe that the SWAT is a
Treasure Hunt and I also show some instances since 2007 where the logo has
been used. For more information regarding the 2013 Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt
and Segmenting, check out my video:
