Hot Wheels
« on: July 26, 2018, 10:04:16 AM »

Surprisingly I couldn't find an existing hot wheels thread. I haven't really been collecting these since I have titanium and focus primarily on OT stuff there hasn't been much of interest to me.

But I saw these concept vehicles from hot whhels a little while ago and they showed up at SDCC. Anyone know if these have come out in, or are coming to, Canada? They look really cool and I love concept stuff so these are a must for me.

I've been collecting Hot Wheels SW character cars, starships and playsets.  I've stayed away from the all terrain kids series and the battle rollers.

Agreed the hot wheels stuff needs its own thread, and I'll let you know if and when I see the concept vehicles.  So far I think they've only been spotted in the USA.

I haven't seen new Hot Wheels ships for quite a while actually. Walmart hasn't stocked any for months in my area and TRU seems equally empty. I'm hoping to see some new stuff at Dollarama eventually.

 Whoa I didn't realize there was that many of us chasing sw hot wheels. For sure I'll post when I see something. I hadn't seen the 40th ones at my dollaramas, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.
Has anyone picked up the larger hw elite ships? There's an x wing,  falcon and TIE fighter. I see them on Amazon.ca running for $60 to 80, from the pics they don't look any better than the old titanium ultras from the early 2000's but it's tough to say for sure unless you've seen them in person.

I saw the Falcon at a Fan Expo earlier this year. I think it was Edmonton but I'm not 100%. They wanted way too much for it but it was nice. However, if I remember, I liked my Titanium Big Falcon better. It seemed to have more details. Like the difference between Black Series Titanium and Hot Wheels.

Did anyone see the 40th Anniversary release of Hot Wheels ships? The only place I ever saw them was online for WAY too much and at Dollarama on dented cards.

I saw the 40th Anniversary Hot Wheels Carships but not the regular starships at dollarama. No change in paint apps and honestly the cards looked pretty unspectacular in person.

Toys R Us appears to be the place to go for the latest Hot Wheels Starships.  Finally picked up the Solo Imperial Patrol Speeder today to complete that wave (got the 1st Order AT-ST, B-Wing, AT-TE previously).

Still have not seen the concept vehicles in store but there are now pages up for three of them on amazon.ca

https://www.amazon.ca/Hot-Wheels-Starship-Prototype-Millenium/dp/B0777RVK18/ref=aw_st_pd_dx_s_5/132-1421012-4338007?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0777RVK18&pd_rd_r=d4616d15-86a1-4fdc-b4f7-25e82c68639f&pd_rd_w=hHec3&pd_rd_wg=zNV4S&psc=1&refRID=0KYFN45NF82ZHJ4WHTQN

Can search for Hot Wheels Starship Prototype and they should come up.

I see amazon.ca has listings not only for the Hot Wheels Prototype Falcon X-Wing and  TIE, but now also the Star Destroyer and Landspeeder.  All of them are listed as out of stock but they are orderable at $6.99 apiece.

That's interesting. Now Amazon.ca has jacked the falcon, XWing and TIE protos to just over $20 while the land speeder and star destroyer are still at $6.99. Once again we're at the mercy of their algorithms.

Those are likely third party prices. You might be able to still find them at the 6.99 under "other sellers". Otherwise it appears amazon may be presold out at the moment. If more stock becomes available it should go back to 6.99. But yes they seem to have weird algorithms.
