Welcome to HTBomb's Magical Hot Wheels. I played with Mattel Hot Wheels when I was a kid and began collecting them as an adult in 1996 shortly after leaving a 79 cent limited edition Treasure Hunt Passion on the pegs at KMart. That car is now worth $100! Several months later I found and bought three Treasure Hunts at Target. I was hooked.

I am interested in buying childhood collections of toy cars: Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Corgi, Husky, Dinky and Topper Johnny Lightning; Slot cars from Cox, Aurora and Tyco AF/X; Plastic model kits from AMT, Monogram, MPC. Please contact me via my website link below.

Found: Hot Wheels 1:87/HO 1966 Batmobile!

I found this amazing Hot Wheels 1:87/HO scale Batmobile at Toys R Us.  They are very hard to find as they only come one per case and many of the cars are slow sellers.  The finish and detail are amazing.

If you want to find out more about the real car this is a great book (just click on the photo above).  I bought this great book a few years ago and its an excellent overview to many of George Barris' finer works.
