pinoy hot wheels collectors – Kmart Hot Wheels Collectors Event this Saturday at 9 a.m
Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the main 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 their cars, permitting the use of first design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, such as limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Although it would be upgraded throughout the years, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service stations by which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a rise in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze began with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the fall. The conference happened in various locations around the nation before 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
