hot wheels collectors redline club – Red Line Club Hot Wheels Collector
It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Many auto manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of the cars, permitting using initial design blueprints and detailing. Though Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, they’ve become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition versions are currently made available.
Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be updated during the years, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), with a single (or two) “super hitter” (artificial service channels by which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the past 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, generally held every year at the autumn. The convention happened in various locations around the country before 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which is used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his collection in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
