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.

Team Hot Wheels Boneshaker Review

Mattel just introduced a new series called Team Hot Wheels that purport to have High Speed Wheels "developed at the Hot Wheels Test Facility".

I know the Emperor has new clothes, er, wheels but does anyone else think these wheels are ugly?

At least the red wheels blend with the red flames. But the blue wheels?!

If the early reviews said these new wheels were faster than regular wheels (they don't) I'd be more inclined to look the other way. This latest iteration of the popular Boneshaker looks great and features a solid roof instead of the original open roof design. Except for the ugly wheels.

By the way if you haven't visited Joe's Diecast Shack before you should.  Photo of red-wheeled Boneshaker by 68customs.
