    those are knockoffs.and expensive at 1.50 each plus taxes.

      I love the knock-off logo that just says 'die cast' where it would otherwise say 'Hot Wheels'.

        Gotta like the name there, Hot Speed.

        I've seen many Hot Wheels knock offs, rip offs and copies in Casablanca. One toy store manager admitted himself that he's selling fake Hot Wheels.
        Some of those even had Hot Wheels logo.

          Ooooh, "Hot Speed" still produces a Ten pack instead of NINE cars

            Wonder if the one in the corner is exclusive like real HWs packs.


            • #7
              Wonder how many don't notice that it says Hot Speed and just see the familiar red logo,

                I remember back in the boom box days seeing a Panosonic (Panasonic) for sale at a legit(?) stereo business in New Orleans........

                  The cars in the back are all plastic.

                  The "Metal Car Models" 10 pack had plastic cars 😅

                  The 6 "Hot Wheels" cars in the back of the truck are probably Kaixin or HTI.

                  Hot Wheels 10 pack is original but the Batmobile 10-pack under it isn't.

                  3-pack rip off.
                  It has Mattel logo on the back of the box but all text is Engrish.
                  Cars do not have Mattel or Hot Wheels on their base.

                  The speed game on back is funny. You're supposed to spot 7 differences between two images but I couldn't find even one 😅

                    To be fair, if you want that Fiat 500D or SP2 release, that first 10 pack might not be a bad option considering the real ones are premium line castings that would cost at least half as much as the entire 10 pack to get. The Fiat is a better example than the VW, considering it's a premium only casting so far. Just customize them all with HW wheels and toss the fantasy ones like with a real HW multipack.

                      The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

                      Thank you for your understanding.

                        well thats Engrish right there
                        it should be MOBIL as in portable & movable
                        not MOBILE as in a sculpture you hang from the ceiling
