The 2017 Hot Wheels Mainline list has been released. It's gonna be a fun year...


Here is an early Christmas present.  Just as Mattel is closing its doors for the holidays, someone hit SEND on the 2017 Hot Wheels Mainline list and posted it to HWC.

    Other than that, the new models aren't hugely exciting, but I look forward to excellent execution on these models. I love the direction of the design team.

  5. I just looked at the complete list and saw a new model called "Flash Drive". I have seen DYI flash drives made using Hot Wheels cars and wonder if this new model will have a built in flash drive.

    1. Almost certainly not...not for a $1 car.

    2. Perhaps not a real flash drive...but maybe a fake one you can plug in and use as sort of a dust cover?

    1. Could be one of the still-unknown Exotics slots.

  11. And there are still two slots in Exotics that are yet to be revealed--all of which have asterisks, denoting new models. What could they be?

    2. Wish those new models were Ferrari's.. wishful thinking I guess. Oh well...
      Thank you Ferrari! Don't know why you pulled out, but doesn't make sense after all those years.
      Looked forward to seeing new models coming out, especially premium line Ferrari castings. Mercedes are once again being distributed through MBX and I gladly purchased the new McLaren SLR. Awesome car... and Mercedes is one of the most recognizable car makers in existence.
      Maybe Ferrari will have a heart one day and return to Mattel to make young kids further their desire for their cars!

    3. It's not that difficult to understand why Ferrari "pulled out". May Cheong (Maisto/Bburago) outbid Mattel for the exclusive diecast rights. Although I'm still holding out hope that Mattel could get a Ferrari sublicense from May Cheong even if it means paying MC for every Ferrari Hot Wheels sold. Either that, or they can exploit the diecast "kit" loophole like Kyosho.

      The Bburago Ferraris were only in Walmarts in Ottawa, Canada very briefly at the beginning of 2016 and I haven't seen them since, and they're too expensive for ~1/64 scale cars with plastic wheels and chassis (like almost Greenlight prices). If I'm paying a fiver and change for a single 1/64 scale Ferrari, I want metal/metal and rubber tires.

  12. On one hand, I'm happy to see the return of the '67 Camaro after being absent from the mainlines for 4 years (the last one in the mainlines was the Summit Camaro in 2013).

    On the other hand, the '67 Camaro was one of the few mainline holdouts with both a diecast body and chassis, and it also featured an opening hood. Since Mattel has more or less completely nickel-and-dimed metal/metal cars out of the mainlines completely (maybe still excluding some really tiny cars like Meyers Manx and GoKart), I'm assuming the '67 Camaro's return to the mainlines involves a major casting change, either with a plastic chassis under the metal body or even with a metal chassis but a plastic body (re: basically just the Color Shifters version of the '67 Camaro but without the colour-changing feature), and the opening hood will be gone either way.

  13. I just saw the Porsche 934.5, it's all white like the Custom Datsun 240Z with all black wheels and a black "PORSCHE" on the doors. It is sweet! Another must have model.

  14. At least 16 cars I haven't gotten yet for 2017. Bluebird (because hype) and Hako (because really cool) are on my list. Oh, boy.

  15. I am begging for 1500 Pesos for this... Mattel is eating my money

  16. Darn. I was really hoping to see the Fiat again. It's such a well done model. Fingers crossed for an abarth next year.

    1. I would love to see an Abarth, if Mattel really wants to make cars collectors want that is definitely one of them.
