Hot Wheels die cast Cars - Mad Propz Air Plane, Cool-One, Fish'd & Chip'd Cars Toy Review
Hi Hot Wheels fans and YouTubers today I will be showing the Hot Wheels
Racing Mad Propz airplane, the Hot Wheels Code car COOL ONE and Fish'd &
Chip'd car from the Hot Wheels Fleet series (by Mattel Toys)!
Make-a-face Mater Cars 2 toy review!
MAD PROPZ AIR PLANE:
Mad Propz (or Madd Propz) is a Hot Wheels casting designed by Steve Moran
based on an airplane. It was first to be named the Air Hammer as seen in
the above picture on the wing, but was changed before the production
process. Mad Propz debuted in the 2004 Hot Wheels line as part of the First
The newer design of the Cool-One model vehicle featured in this video was
first implemented in 2004 (Debut Series: 2004 First Editions). Mark Jones
is responsible for the incredibly awesome design of this beast of a
vehicle! Check out those Exhaust!!!
FISH'D & CHIP'D:
The story of Fish'd & Chip'd (Debut Series: 2003 First Editions) started
when designer Fraser Campbell wanted to do a Jaguar model for the Hot
Wheels lineup. However, there was no license to do a replica of the
existing Jaguar of choice. Graphics designer Wayne Scott mentioned
customizing the Jag by chopping the roof line and lowering it (Fish & Chip
as the English term). The gears started turning, pen hit the paper and the
sleek Fish'd & Chip'd was born.
On the passenger seat, there is an order of fish and chips molded into the
This model is loosely based on the 1963 Jaguar Mark X, which was never
actually produced in a two-door version.
Hot Wheels are die-cast model vehicles manufactured by Mattel and were
introduced in 1967. Originally the cars and trucks were manufactured to
approximately 1:64 scale and designed to be used on associated Hot Wheels
track sets. By 1972, however, a series of 1:43 scale "Gran Toros" made by
Mebetoys in Milan, Italy, were introduced. More recently, a range of highly
detailed adult collector vehicles, including replicas of NASCAR and Formula
One cars, have found success. Despite the forays into larger scales, the
brand remains most famous for the small scale free-rolling models of custom
hot rods and muscle cars it has produced since the range first appeared.
Roughly 10,000 or more different models of Hot Wheel Cars have been
produced over the years.
Hot Wheel Vehicles are authorized by the car makers General Motors, Ford
Motor Company, and Chrysler Motors. Other car makers like Ferrari, Mazda,
and Toyota have licensed Hot Wheels to make a scale model of their cars.
To make a Hot Wheels version of a current-model car, Mattel looks at design
blueprints of the full-sized car. An example of this is the Chrysler 300
Hot Wheel car. First, the Hot Wheel Team and Mattel went to Chrysler to
look at the design of the 300 and an actual car. Chrysler licensed the
blueprints to Mattel and the Hot Wheel Team for the purpose of producing
the model car. Chrysler then required Mattel to return the blueprints after
the Hot Wheel team was finished studying them.
At Mattel's Hot Wheel design center, the blueprint's design measurements
and dimensions were scaled down to conform to a model car that is 1/64 the
size of a real car. Then a mock-up of the car was produced in plastic and
evaluated. After this process, the mock-up became a die cast metal mock up,
which was evaluated again. After these processes were complete, the final
version of the car was then manufactured.
For older scale models, the 1968 Chevy Nova for example, the model maker
uses blueprints from General Motors and also studies car brochures of that
Larry Wood, the head of the Hot Wheels division (now retired), had been
with the Mattel/Hot Wheels team since 1969. He originally worked for
General Motors as a designer.
The Hot Wheels product line has also included various tracks, accessories,
and other kinds of vehicles such as "Sizzlers" rechargeable electric cars,
"Hot Line" trains, "R-R-Rumblers" motorcycles, "Hot Birds" airplanes and
the comical half-human/half-machine "Farbs".

Grave Digger 30th Anniversary Monster Truck Hot Wheels Monster Jam Stunts Jumps Toy Review
Check out some stunt jumps and take a close look at the super awesome Grave
Digger 30th Anniversary Hot Wheels Monster Jam release! Grave Digger (often
referred to as simply Digger) is the name of a team currently racing in the
Feld Entertainment Monster Jam series. There are nine Grave Diggers being
driven by different drivers to allow them to make appearances at more
events, but their flagship driver is creator Dennis Anderson. Grave Digger
is considered to be one of the most influential and iconic monster trucks
of all time.
Monster Truck Backflip Jump Epic Fail:
Grave Digger was originally conceived in 1981 by Dennis Anderson as a mud
bogger. This first truck was a red 1952 Ford pickup truck. Later on a
silver and blue 1951 Ford Panel Truck was his new mud truck that would
become the first Grave Digger monster truck . The truck received its name
when Anderson, amicably trash talking with his fellow racers, said the now
famous line, "I'll take this old junk and dig you a grave with it", a
reference to the age of his old pickup in comparison to their relatively
modern trucks. Anderson gained a reputation for an all-or-nothing driving
style and quickly became popular at local events. At one show, a scheduled
monster truck failed to show up and Anderson, who already had large tractor
tires on the truck, offered to crush cars in the absence of the full-size
monster. The promoter accepted and Grave Digger was an instant success as a
car crusher and led Anderson to leave mud bogging and pursue monster trucks
In 1986 Grave Digger underwent a transformation to complete monster truck
and first received its famous black graveyard paint scheme. In 1987 and
1988 Anderson drove the truck primarily at TNT Motorsports races and became
a crowd favorite for driving hard despite lacking major funding that more
well known teams, like Bigfoot, had. In 1987, Anderson beat Bigfoot in St.
Paul, MN on a show taped for ESPN. It was the first major victory for Grave
Anderson moved to Grave Digger 2 in 1989, with a new 1950 Chevy panel van
body. It was during this time that the reputation for wild passes was
developed, and the popularity of the truck increased. TNT recognised his
rising popularity and began promoting Grave Digger heavily, especially for
races on the Tuff Trax syndicated television series. This was helped by
Bigfoot not racing for points in the 1989 championship, leaving Grave
Digger as the most popular truck on the tour.
When TNT became a part of the USHRA in 1991, Anderson began running on the
USHRA tour and debuted his first four-link truck, Grave Digger 3.
Throughout the 1990s, the popularity of the truck grew and forced Anderson
to hire other drivers to run other Grave Digger trucks. Grave Diggers 4, 5
and 8 were built to suit this purpose, and were never driven in any major
capacity by Anderson. Anderson drove Grave Digger 7, a direct successor to
3, for most of the decade. It was replaced by Grave Digger 12, well known
as the "long wheelbase Digger", which was also the first Grave Digger with
purple in the paintjob.
In late 1998, Anderson sold the Grave Digger team to Clear Channel Motor
Sports (now Feld Entertainment Motor Sports). Anderson continues to drive
and still is the most visible member of the team. However, the Grave Digger
shop in Poplar Branch, NC now also houses the other trucks which Feld
GRAVE DIGGER ACHIEVEMENTS:
1999 Monster Jam Points Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2000 Monster Jam World Freestyle Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2002 Monster Jam Points Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2003 Monster Jam Points Champion (Gary Porter)
2004 Monster Jam Points Champion (Randy Brown)
2004 Monster Jam World Racing Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2006 Monster Jam World Racing Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2010 Monster Jam World Racing Champion (Dennis Anderson)
2012 U.S Freestyle Racing Champion (Randy Brown)
Gary Porter also won the WMTRL Championship in 2004 driving Grave Digger
#12. Many Grave Digger team drivers have won world championships in other
trucks. Regular Grave Digger driver Pablo Huffaker won the 2007 Monster Jam
Freestyle Championship driving Captain's Curse, and son of Dennis Anderson,
Adam Anderson won the freestyle championship in 2008 driving Taz, and Grave
Digger driver Charlie Pauken won the 2010 Monster Jam World Finals
Freestyle Championship driving Monster Mutt.
The reputation Grave Digger gained shot the truck to super stardom in the
1980s and continues to draw fans today. The immense popularity of Grave
Digger has made it the poster child for Monster Jam, and in some cases
monster trucks in general. There is much debate over whether Grave Digger
has taken over the title of "Most Popular Monster Truck" from Bigfoot. As a
result, the Grave Digger vs. Bigfoot rivalry is one of the strongest in the
sport, despite the fact the trucks only race each other a few times each
Flame Drop from the Wall Tracks system from Hot Wheels
Flame Drop and Boardwalk Blast appeared in stores at the same time. Flame
Drop is fun but it has it's own configuration and you won't be able to swap
it's pieces with the pieces from other sets. You can have parts leading
into and out of Flame Drop though without any problems. Between the two, I
like Boardwalk Blast much better! All of the parts are interchangeable with
your current Wall Tracks setup!
Hot Wheels Dragon Destroyer Product Demonstration
This playset appeared late 2012 and is about $20 USD. Kids will love the
toy dragon and it can be played with separately. For the young ones who
like to sit in one spot and play, this is a set to consider. It is rated
for ages four and up but I think that snapping the dragon into position may
be difficult for a 4-year old. You don't want to lose the section of the
track, the one that is attached to the dragon's mouth. The whole track
action goes over that piece. The elevator uses a typical system that other
playsets use and it often gets stuck or doesn't go up smoothly. The video

look at the Color Shifters cars which change color and pattern when dipped
