Hot Wheels 2016 Batch A has been unveiled...

Yep, we are here.  2016.

Sure, in standard time there are still a few turkeys to eat, Santa needs to make his run, not to mention a run on pumpkins and Frozen costumes, but in Hot Wheels time 2016 is here.  Actually, in Hot Wheels time it is actually 2017, but that is a story for another time.

But it is time to move from the known to the unknown.  I actually prefer not knowing the next year's lineup, because it means more surprises.  And now with our favorite Texas seller unveiling Batch A, we have our first idea of what is coming.

It starts with the first Treasure Hunts.  The Tesla Roadster will be the first Super, and the Rig Storm will be the Regular.

Not a bad Super, and it is nice to Hot Wheels continuing to branch out with the carmakers they are using for the Supers.  After no Chevys last year, the first one pops up about 3-4 batches in, after a Tesla, Hudson, and Acura.  Cool cool cool.

The other notables are the fantastic Isuzu-based Chevy LUV, which Hot Wheels has given the standard treatment, and another Batmobile for you bat-fans:

The rest you can see be following the link (and be sure to check the completed listings):

Some other notables:


  1. Why did HW Ferrari have to die? Why? So others may live? Oh, that's a pile of sharkshit.

    1. I'm sure it had something to do with Ferrari wanting to bend Mattel over and pay the price to keep them. Matty in turn told Ferrari to go take a flying %$@!

    2. Besides the Chevy Trucks are way better than Ferrari any day!

    3. Like Cookie Monster say.."Me miss Ferrari"!

  2. So '69 Charger 500 and '77 Firebird, first two revealed to have won the Heat Fleet vote.

  3. John, the text for the 2016 batch A is miswritten "2015".

    And, damn, this is an awesome batch.

  4. I think the texts behind the Regular THs are different too. New texts, perhaps. Anybody know what the texts say? Thanks!

  5. 77 FIREBIRD in Mainline!!!! Sweet! Best car in the batch. Hope it come out in black later. Also nice new Batmobile.

  6. For some reason, I like almost every Basic TH, I don't care if it looks silly or not, I want that Rig Storm!
    (And of course that Firebird and Porsche)

  7. How the hell are Batch A 2016's arriving 4 months ahead of schedule?. Ive never understood this!. Why do they even bother?, if they must than why dont they just carry it all the way to batch Z or until the new year starts or witch ever comes first?. It seems like the new batches are arriving earlier every year.

  8. Really? Stealing the pictures from an eBay seller?
