  1. From the beginning of the brand, there’s not much that says “Hot Wheels” like a muscle era Camaro®! Just like Hot Wheels, the ’69 Chevrolet® Camaro® SS™ has become something today even more exciting than when it started – and we’ve got a brand-new casting for you that elevates the best of both worlds! We all love our ’69 Camaro®, but what about performance for today? Upgrade that for Pro-touring intensity with things like a modern stance, the latest and greatest drive train, or... how about an LT4 engine? According to designer Brendon Vetuskey, “It’s new, compact, lightweight, powerful, efficient, and reliable.” We also made sure to include an opening hood for you – a flat hood with vents, which we’ve never used on a ’69 Camaro® before – and you can get a good look at that engine! Besides the opening hood, this slammin’ 1:64 scale release features a Spectraflame antifreeze finish with black stripe on sides and authentic logos. With full-metal construction, you’ll find a matte black-painted chassis and that and LT4 engine with painted details under the hood. It sits well on a set of Real Riders 5-spoke modern wheels with bronze-painted hubs and silver lips. Light smoke-tinted windows and a black-painted interior with bronze steering wheel round out the details, and it’s packaged on an illustrated RLC blister card, snug in a Kar Keepers clamshell case. Specs: Features: Opening hood Body Color: Spectraflame antifreeze Deco: Black stripe on sides with authentic logos Body Type: ZAMAC Wheels: Real Riders 5-spoke modern wheels with bronze-painted hubs and silver lip Base: Full-metal, matte black-painted chassis and LT4 engine with painted details Window Color: Light smoke-tinted Interior Color: Painted black with bronze steering wheel Packaging: Packaged on an illustrated RLC blister card, packed in a Kar Keepers clamshell case Availability: RLC members only: 9/28/21 at 9:00 a.m. PT until sold out Pricing and Purchase Limits: Priced at $25.00 plus shipping and processing each; extra charges may apply for express shipping or special handling (customers shipping to Canada may be required to pay additional shipping charges or taxes) We do offer international shipping to other countries – please see shipping costs and details here (international shipping availability subject to change) Limit of ONE (1) per club membership; limit five (5) per household (purchase limits subject to change at our sole discretion) Refunds only, no exchanges Items and dates subject to change.

  2. By Ani Morgan With their stark edges and luminous hues, crystal geodes could be considered nature’s version of abstract art. Designed by Bill Greening, the new Barbie Crystal Fantasy Collection is a love letter to the beauty of these natural wonders. A Barbie Signature Member Exclusive, the enchanting amethyst-inspired doll is the first in this series – and as chic and commanding as they come. Wrapped in a purple chiffon gown with glittering accents, this jewel-toned beauty is a study in polished elegance and powerful luminosity. A true maximalist, she wears a striking geode crown with matching wrist cuffs, while her platinum hair reveals a statement-making streak. The pièce de résistance is the genuine amethyst gemstone that adorns her neck and completes the look. “This new line is inspired by the interest in crystals and the properties and energies they’re believed to possess,” says Bill. Indeed, the origins of crystal healing go back thousands of years, and the practice is widely embraced today, with people collecting and charging these magnificent minerals directly in the sun for increased potency. “Amethyst is often associated with healing, calming, balance, and peacefulness,” he continues. And it’s easy to see why. One look at its iridescent palette evokes an immediate sense of calm – everyone could use more of that! Amethyst is a complex stone, with striking jagged edges and variegated hues ranging from pale lavender to deep lilac, violet, and plum. This richness is captured in the doll as well. She radiates with an ethereal, almost pure and translucent presence similar to crystals themselves. “We wanted to keep true to the colors of the amethyst crystal and carry tones of lavender and purple though her fashion, accessories, makeup and hair,” says Bill. “The Grecian style of her dress complements the fantasy theme of the stone and crystal well.” When asked about his favorite detail, Bill shared “I love that her crown, bracelets, and lace-up heels carry the crystal theme from head to toe. They look like shards, giving the doll a magical and mystical feel,” he shares. “Of course the most important detail is that her necklace is made from an actual amethyst. I love that we were able to give this doll such precious and special detail.” A doll this stunning deserves an equally jaw-dropping backdrop – and thankfully, that vision came to life through both photography and packaging. The photoshoot set can only be described as a crystal dreamscape. (See behind-the-scenes photos of the set below!) Reminiscent of a glowing ice sculpture, it has a modern, almost otherworldly point of view which carries over to the unique package as well. “When we started to ideate this new Crystal Fantasy series, we brought our package team in very early in the process,” says Bill. “I shared my vision and my mood boards and they came up with this unique light-up concept that really drives home the magical, mystical vibe of the doll.” A first for Barbie Signature packaging, this truly elevates the element of fantasy in every way. The first Barbie Crystal Fantasy Collection doll is a Mattel Creations exclusive that’s only available to Barbie Signature members. It's a Gold Label release that retails for $100, with a 3-doll limit per member. Start your collection today with this amazing amethyst doll!

  4. By Gary Barnum It takes a lot to move a lot of soldiers in war, and in World War II, the 1944 Willys MB was created en masse as part of that movement. In homage to that kind of innovation, and a whole lot of movement, our designers created this HWC Special Edition, our first release of this casting! Prepare for your chance at one right here on September 14, 2021. A modern 4x4 off-road take on the original, this beast features articulated suspension, Real Riders wheels with off-road tires, and a roll bar -- great for rock crawling in places like Moab, Utah which you’ll notice on the backdrop of our oversized acrylic case with terrain formed base. Includes a fold-forward windshield and finished off in Spectraflame olive with painted details on the interior and the exterior. Move this forward into your collection – that’s an order! The windshield tips forward, and the full-metal construction includes a matte black-painted chassis with painted details, Spectraflame olive finish with painted details on shovels on sides and "I'm gonna CRAWL" on the rear. It sports Real Riders 5-spoke wheels with off-road tires, and it also includes a clear windshield and a matte black interior and roll bar with painted details in front and rear. It’s packaged in an oversized acrylic case which features a terrain-formed base and a backdrop of Moab, Utah.

  5. By Allen Voivod In 2019, Barbie Signature released the first Día De Muertos Barbie Doll, and it sold out almost immediately. You can just imagine how thrilling that is for us, to create something so compelling for Barbie fans. And imagine our excitement when the 2020 doll sold out just as quickly! It's a joy to design dolls like these, and your enthusiasm inspired us to do more for 2021. This year, we welcome a new Día De Muertos Barbie Doll to the annual collection, and this time, she's brought a friend along to help her celebrate – the first Día De Muertos Ken Doll. To bring this pairing to you in time for the holiday, we tapped the creator of last year’s celebrated designs, Javier Meabe, to lead the project. We asked Javier about feeling excitement or pressure for the new dolls, knowing how well received the previous ones were. His answer? "Of course! All of the above! Excitement because I love creating new dolls for this series and seeing them come to life. There's a huge sense of pride when designing the Día De Muertos dolls. "There's also a huge sense of pressure because I want to make sure I'm representing my community and traditions correctly. It helps that I'm surrounded with a great team of creatives that help bring the vision to life. It wouldn’t be possible without them, their passion for the holiday, the brand, and most important the community, helping bring the sketch into a reality." In case you're not familiar with it, Día De Muertos is a two-day holiday in early November when families gather to celebrate the lives of their departed loved ones. It's about both death and life, vibrantly colorful, with some public festivals but mostly family-focused ceremonies. You'll often find the occasion commemorated with music, food, sweets, offerings, and flowers. Colorful attire is also a staple of the custom, as is the calavera, a representation of the human skull. Sometimes the calavera appears as an elaborately decorated mask worn by people during the holiday; alternatively, the calavera is painted directly on people's faces, also with unique designs and accents. Calavera face paint is what we did with the first two Día De Muertos Barbie dolls, and for the third, Javier took it even further – he extended the painting to depict the skeleton of Barbie down her neck and to the top of her chest. Speaking about that, Javier says, "I always try to incorporate some new elements with each doll. That way each doll has something unique and special that they can own. I also wanted the artwork on her body to symbolize that her traditions are in her bones and will always be a part of her. The bone detail artwork on her neck has similar details and elements that can be seen on the artwork on the gown as well." Knowing that there will be face paint also affects other design designs for the dolls. Javier explains: "When designing face paint, hair styles, and choosing face sculpts for the Día de Muertos series, there are a lot of things that I think about during the process. Keeping the make-up and hair style fresh and exciting is always a priority but making sure we keep the traditional Día De Muertos elements are important. Selecting face sculpts is also very important because we need to make sure that the sculpt and face paint work together. We want to make sure each sculpt is different for each doll. This helps us bring something new and exciting to the series." As for the fashion: This year, the Barbie doll wears a traditional dress embroidered with sugar skull and flower details. A crown of marigolds with hidden skull details adorns her hair, complemented by a twisted headband detail. Her hair is pulled back to accentuate the intriguing calavera face painting that continues to her neck and forms the delicate skeleton. Sugar skull earrings, vibrant bracelets, and a cuff with sculpted skull details complete her look. The Ken doll wears a charro-inspired look featuring black pants and a matching shirt with an embroidered floral design and silvery buttons, and a bow tie. His striking serape is decorated with sugar skulls, bones, and vibrant flowers. A silvery sculpted sugar skull design decorates his sombrero and belt buckle, and his face is painted in an impressive calavera design. Brown boots and a matching belt complete his look. "There are so many great details and elements incorporated in both dolls," Javier says. "I love all the accessories Barbie and Ken are wearing. They're full of so much beautiful detail. Both dolls are full of a lot of bright and colorful artwork that helps capture the heart and soul of the Día De Muertos celebration." Dolls this beautiful also demand a beautiful package that's suitable for display, and our amazing packaging team rose to the occasion. Packaging designer Sal Velazquez partnered with Javier to create cakebox-style doll boxes for each of the dolls, featuring original full-face illustrations of the dolls on the covers. Should you remove your dolls from their packages, you'll of course find a doll stand included with each, along with a Certificate of Authenticity. The 2021 Día De Muertos Barbie and Ken Dolls are part of our Black Label series of dolls, available for $75 each in our online shop. When they debut, there will be a limit of two (2) Día De Muertos Barbie and limit one (1) for Día De Muertos Ken Doll per person, so more Barbie fans and fashion doll collectors can bring them to their homes. (This limit is subject to change.) Because the previous Día De Muertos dolls sold out so quickly, you'll have to act fast if you want to add this perfect pair to your collection. And if you celebrate this holiday, we send you the warmest wishes as you gather with loved ones and remember the lives of those you hold dear. (Still want more?

  6. By Allen Voivod Last year, tens of thousands of Barbie fans around the world voted on the fashions, styling, and accessories for the second doll in the @Barbiestyle Fashion Doll Series – a "summer" themed doll. Now, your choices have been developed and designed to create the latest doll inspired by @Barbiestyle on Instagram! "A lot of the choices we make for the @Barbiestyle series is a hybrid: what we have done that we know the fans love, and new groupings and additions to complement the core parts. Each doll is meant to tell a story: when you look at her you can imagine where she would walk, what she would carry, and what types of conversations she may have," reveals Barbie Design Manager Linda Kyaw-Merschon. "This line in particular was mainly designed in 2019. We had about 90% of all the [voting option] details pre-determined based on feedback from fans, and [finished with] what we felt was a perfect balance between all the four dolls in the collection. The importance of having the concepts fully realized in their entirety upfront is mainly to ensure that it tells a complete story. No doll is more important than the other and all are created with intention to live beautifully on their own and together in harmony." In case you're not familiar with it, @Barbiestyle has more than two million followers on Instagram, and gives fans a unique glimpse into the daily life of their favorite fashion icon. This @Barbiestyle Fashion Doll Series was created to bring some of Barbie doll's most memorable looks from the channel to life, while using premium, true-to-life fashions and accessories, with details such as real zippers and high-end fabrics. More than 56,000 people took advantage of their opportunity to "influence the influencer" when Barbie Signature opened the voting on options ranging from hairstyle to shoes and everything in between. After the voting ended, the winning choices were announced, and a team led by Linda took those items into further design to prepare them for the doll you can own today. And in this case, very little had to be edited. "There were no changes made from the photos!" Linda reveals. "We made sure that anything we photographed can be manufactured. There may be some slight edits that happen later on due to things like testing and fit, but we maintain the integrity of what we promise in photos to the best of our ability." To give an example of this, Linda says, "We photographed a previous doll with Velcro on one of her fashion pieces, and after receiving feedback on it, we decided to change it on the next upcoming doll. Velcro is known to have a seamless look, can pass certain testing we do, and since it lays flat it allows for more layering vs. snaps. Those factors are always considered when choosing something as simple as closures. We're always listening to feedback, and there's a purpose and rationale for all the choices we make to give Barbie fans the best version possible from the options we have!" Our latest @Barbiestyle doll, featuring a gorgeous braided hairstyle, arrives with five on-trend pieces that fans can mix and match to style Barbie for any occasion: a white, woven boxy mesh top and stretchy black bike shorts; a classic camel coat with real buttons, a yellow pleated blouse with bow details, and a matching chiffon ruffle tiered skirt. Complete any look you style with a pair of white sneakers or strappy black heels, shiny VUM sunglasses, crisp white vinyl handbag or a chic clutch, golden watch or silvery cuff, and a smartphone accessory. The fashions and accessories can also be mixed and matched with the ones that came with the first doll in the series (and the same goes for the other two dolls to come). And to help you design your own photo-worthy moments, the doll uses the Made to Move doll body for endless posing possibilities and comes with a doll stand to assist with your photo shoot setups. The whole set is packaged in a stunningly designed premium box, with a marbled finish and magnetic closure. This second doll in the @Barbiestyle Fashion Doll Series is on sale now for $100 in the online shop. She's a Gold Label doll, and at the start of her availability, there will be a limit of three (3) dolls per person, so as many Barbie and @Barbiestyle fans as possible can add her to their collections. (This limit is subject to change at a later date.) It's time to get on-trend, so order the latest @Barbiestyle Fashion Doll today, and start planning out your photo locations and set designs while you wait for her to arrive!
  7. By Ani Morgan Elvis. Barbie. Two figures so iconic, they’re addressed by single names only and need no introduction at all. Put these legends together and a new kind of superstar is born – one you truly “can’t help falling in love” with! The Barbie Signature Elvis Presley Barbie Doll celebrates Elvis’ larger-than-life legacy in a thoroughly refreshing way – with Barbie® herself personifying the spirit of Elvis. Elvis dolls are not new to Mattel. From Barbie Loves Elvis to a set featuring Elvis and Priscilla Presley on their wedding day, the King of Rock 'n' Roll has long graced collector shelves in Ken doll form. Now, twenty years after Mattel’s original rendition of Elvis Presley in the Eagle Jumpsuit, Barbie takes the spotlight in her own version of the same legendary look. “One reason why we did Barbie doll as Elvis was the ‘coolness’ factor of a female in more masculine clothing,” designer Linda Kyaw-Merschon explains. “It’s very empowering and quite reflective of the times.” Like the original stage ensemble, Barbie doll’s bell-bottomed jumpsuit is embellished with sparkling eagles in red, gold, and blue and includes an attached cape and scarf. Inspired by Elvis’ signature accessories, she also wears white pointy-toed boots and a “turquoise” ring. Completing the iconic look is a sleek pompadour ponytail – a nod to Elvis’ trademark hairstyle, but with a very Barbie twist. Merging two iconic figures into one poses challenges, to be sure. “When working on such a high profile, well-known and beloved person, the challenge is making sure you are doing it the justice that it deserves,” says Linda. “Every stitch, every color, every possibility has been thoughtfully worked through by the entire talented team.” Those challenges are well worth the gorgeous end results. “There is nothing like taking two things you love and merging them for the ultimate historical moment,” Linda continues. “Both are icons in their own right, so it's always exciting to see how the combination will play out. As you can see, this one is quite memorable!” When it came to selecting which show-stopping look Barbie would bring to life, the choice was clear. “We looked for some of the most heroic pieces in Elvis' wardrobe,” Linda says. “He had great, impeccable, and unique style. We had already done the gold lamé outfit on Barbie doll years ago, and the remarkable 'American Eagle' jumpsuit was the next obvious choice. My favorite element is the eagle icon in the back, of course!” Elvis Presley Barbie Doll makes her timely debut during Elvis Week and retails for $50. This Gold Label stunner will have a two per person purchase limit, while supplies last. (This limit is subject to change at a later date.) Elvis and Barbie fans alike will delight in this magnificent fusion of two genuine icons, so if you want to add her to your collection, don’t wait. As Elvis himself once beautifully crooned, “It’s now or never!” ELVIS™ and ELVIS PRESLEY™ are trademarks of ABG EPE IP LLC Rights of Publicity and Persona Rights: Elvis Presley Enterprises, LLC © 2021 ABG EPE IP LLC elvis.com
  8. By Gary Barnum First released by Matchbox in 1963, the ’62 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupe has a very dignified claim to fame. It was the first vehicle by the brand to feature opening doors! Open up a place in your collection when our latest edition becomes available on August 19, 2021. It’ll be the second release in our brand-new Matchbox Collectors series – featuring the most detailed diecast Matchbox cars you’ve ever seen, with superior collector packaging! Considered among the highest level of luxury and performance models produced by Mercedes-Benz, the ’62 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupe was particularly visually notable for its delicate tailfins – aimed at the American market. Aesthetics aside, Mercedes-Benz produced a vehicle that not only continued their mark of elegance but delivered good performance and acceleration as well. The Matchbox piece saw duty from 1963 – 1967, then wasn’t seen again until a special 67 (last) then special edition in 2019. Now it makes its first appearance since 2019 in this optimal presentation. A shiny silver finish with a matte black roof shout out the subtle class of this amazing vehicle. It of course features the opening doors, plus True Grip GT wheels. It’s housed to show in an acrylic case with an authentic environment backdrop – the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany! You’ll want to display it at your location as well. Specs: Features: Opening doors Body Color: Silver Deco: Matte black roof Body Type: Metal Wheels: True Grip GT wheels Base: Silver VUM Window Color: Light blue-tinted Interior Color: Red Scale: 1:64 Packaging: Packaged in an acrylic case with environment-themed panorama background in a sturdy box Availability: Anyone (until sold out): Thursday, 8/19/21 at 9:00 a.m. PT Pricing and Purchase Limits: Priced at $25.00 plus shipping and processing each; extra charges may apply for express shipping or special handling (customers shipping to Canada may be required to pay additional shipping charges or taxes) We do offer international shipping to other countries – please see shipping costs and details here (international shipping availability subject to change) Refunds only, no exchange Items and dates subject to change.

  15. By Gary Barnum We want to thank you for being our most passionate and enthusiastic fans, and we’d like to show our gratitude. We’re excited to go full throttle on Mattel collectible products with the highway ahead! Beginning July 19, 2021, HotWheelsCollectors.com joins MattelCreations.com to provide you with a greater experience and wider access to more than ever before. Think of it as a website expansion! First off, the intention is to make it easier for you to grab electrifying products from other Mattel brands, such as the ultra-cool editions you might have seen on Mattel Creations, the slick releases from Matchbox that you don’t want to miss, rare and highly sought-after Masters of the Universe figures, and much more. Shopping will be enhanced with better visuals. And with access to all of our communities, if you want even more info details or help, you can ask questions in places where other expert collectors hang out. You can do all of this without creating extra accounts, or signing out and signing back in. Easier, right? Let’s give you a kind of roadmap so you know what to expect from this change. We know you have questions, and we’ve got answers. What URL will I need to find HotWheelsCollectors.com now? Is it changing? You can still access HWC through the original URL HotWheelsCollectors.com – it will automatically redirect you. You can also use the Mattel Creations URL – https://creations.mattel.com/– and then access any collectible landing page from there you want, HWC or otherwise. What about my Bookmarks to Forums, sections of HWC? Will those links still work, too? Yes, these should all migrate as well. Do I have to create a new account for Mattel Creations in order to continue my HWC access? No. Your account(s) will migrate with the associated history. You will have to re-enter your credit card info next time you make a purchase, however. Of course, if you create a new account after the migration, there won’t be any history because it’s a new account! But you are welcome to do so. What happens to my current membership? Your Red Line Club membership will continue on Mattel Creations as normal. Per the Membership Agreement, “Your membership is good for one (1) year from the date you purchased your membership in which you sign-up or renew, unless terminated earlier pursuant to this RLC Membership Agreement.” If you have a free HWC account, it will continue on Mattel Creations as well, though it does not expire (though again, we may terminate at our sole discretion). If I see a product that is not HWC, such as a Matchbox offer for example, can I purchase it using my HWC account*? Yes! That’s actually one of the best advantages of Mattel Creations. You’ll have expanded purchase power without any additional hassle. Note, however, that for brand exclusive products such as RLC Exclusives, you would need to have that brand membership in order to purchase the item. Therefore, as usual, only RLC members can purchase RLC Exclusives. How does this affect my pending orders, especially long-term preorders such as sELECTIONs and the new Preorder sale items? Will I have to update my card, and will I have to re-confirm my order? Since the shopping platform will remain the same (Shopify), your pending orders should remain in place and unchanged. As usual, you will have to make any updates to your credit card changes, billing info, etc. whenever they occur Will our Forums be merged with the Forums of other brands, or will we still be able to quickly and easily find the Hot Wheels subjects we’re most interested in? The HWC Forums will remain in place, separate from our other brands. You will have access to other Forums if you choose, a benefit which can help you with other products you’re interested in or want to discover. If you have any other questions about this website migration, please post them in this Forum: https://forums.hotwheelscollectors.com/forum/53-website-questionssuggestionsdiscussion/ We can’t promise to answer every question, or immediate answers, but we’ll be watching and do our best to address your questions and concerns as quickly as possible. Your passion, patience, and understanding make it all worth it!
