1 The 1st-generation concept models - the Splittin Image and Twin Mill and Silhouette and so on - were actually pretty cool. I think Hot Wheels drifted into BTF territory when they discontinued the Spectraflame paint job and the Redline wheel design. (That was loooong ago.) And they monkeyed with the suspension design too - probably to cut costs - because at some point the cars stopped being "bouncy" when you dropped them wheels-down. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 8, 2011, 4:24 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I've grown up with Hot Wheels (the boy's toy from Mattel) and I enjoyed playing with them! I've had 2 car washes, a parking garage, and multiple carrying cases over the years. I have also always looked forward to the Hot Wheels Happy Meals at McDonalds when I was a kid, too! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:25 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Hot wheels jumped the shark when they stopped producing real cars. I simply do not care about these "HW-original" crappy cars they create How long should I wait to get a 1/64 Ford Thunderbird from Hot wheels? A BMW Z-7? A New Generation Ford Explorer? A Volvo S-40? The new Jaguar XK-8? Porshe Cayenne? Now the First Editions are only hw-original crap and "new" editions of the Hummer, Camaro and Mustang all over again and again. I still collect the few new real cars they release, but it is nothing compared to the golden years (1998-2000) when they produce whatever what hot in the market -- Submitted By: (erickjan) on July 15, 2009, 10:39 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
