hot wheels cars bundle – Hot Wheels 36 Pack Collectors Bundle February 2017
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the primary competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, allowing using initial layout blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were originally meant for kids and young adults, they have become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Though it would be updated throughout time, the initial track consisted of a series of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), with a single (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year at the autumn. The conference happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
