Variation Alert! Hot Wheels 2013 Custom Cadillac Fleetwood
There are many facets to collecting and variation hunting keeps it interesting. As to whether any of them become valuable depends on the make and model as well as the variation. Rarity is a major factor. But when a model first appears, it will take time before we really know how rare a variation truly was. It may be super hard to find in the major toy stores like Toys R Us, Target, Walmart and Kmart but then a few months later, the secondary stores such as Big Lots, Meijers and 99 Cents Only stores might wind up with tons of them.
New Models Fantasy 2012 Year In Review
Some people can't stand Hot Wheels creations but fantasy models have been
around since the beginning of Hot Wheels. Sure, the Silhouette, Deora,
Python, Beatnik Bandit and Hot Heap might have been full-size CUSTOM cars
or based on real cars but they were not production cars available for
consumers to purchase. In this video, I look at the 2012 New Models that
were fantasy creations. Some loosely based on real vehicles, some, not even
Collectors even seen some Hot Wheels designed by notable sports
Shane Warne - Spin King
Felipe Massa - Eagle Massa
Jorge Lorenzo - Imparable

on the Scion xB. Other cars shown are Jeep Cherokee, Ford Mustang Cobra Convertible, Pontiac
Solstice and Baja Bandit.
Off The Pegs: New Matchbox And F Case Hot Wheels
F case Hot Wheels are appearing at Toys R Us too! I was more interested in
seeing new Matchbox since it's been so long since I seen something new.
Some of you may have already seen it but it's the first time for me! Plus,
I picked up a 60th Anniversary Lamborghini!
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

2013-14 Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt Information and New Segmenting
2014 Treasure Hunts follow this same system. This video is primarily USA
Treasure Hunt Information. For non-USA packages, you won't have the text
behind the model as shown in this video. All countries and regions get the
same cars so basic and Superized Treasure Hunts are in ALL assortments for
On USA long cards, this text is usually inside the blister, on the card,
behind the car.
"This symbol lets you know that this vehicle is hard to find and highly
collectable." However, the world-wide and the UK short cards do not have
the text on the card. The model is exactly the same including the Treasure
Hunt circle-flame logo.
