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.

2012 Hot Wheels Batman Series

Mattel has announced a new Batman series featuring Batmobiles from over the years.  The cars are the same ones already found as mainline cars but now in packaging with graphics unique to the car.

My favorite is the '66 TV Batmobile.

There's also the Batcopter from Batman Begins.  Found only in the Batman 5-pack until now.

There are five additional vehicles from the movies and comics.  My vote is out until pricing is announced.  For a dollar these would be cool additions for the new graphics.  But if it's a few dollars and the only difference is the cards...
