Slicker tires, something like a laser weapon, if you're painting it add digital looking waves, and reduce tire size back to stock.
Cyberpunk doesn't go for the big tires and dirt look unless you're pulling an apocalypse.

>any recomendations?
I just got back into collecting for the first time since I was a kid, myself. I really like these Hot Wheels anniversary sets they've done every year since their 50th. They've used a lot of great castings in cool team colors. This year's set is orange, blue and white, but good luck actually finding them in stores, because I certainly couldn't.
>>

What's your preference in cars?
Start there, and use it to open you up to other brands and parts of the hobby.

Old cars and old trucks, Im mostrly into real life based castings.

>>9182680
Go to Matchbox, HW has less overall quality unless you're willing to shill for 5-7 dollar castings that'll probably inflated due to scalpers.
Either MBX or stick to something like Greenlight, former being as cheap as an HW but far more detailed and focus on real cars usually, and the later being pricier but has so much more detail.

I love Hot Wheels but this is one reason I've always been more of a Matchbox guy.

Besides Hot Wheels, what are other brands that offer cars with spectraflame quality paint? I don't have a credit card so I can't buy a red line club membership. Also, I don't want to pay a reseller and getting all the equipment for making my own customs is kinda expensive. I just want some nice shiny cars.

Now that is something I've NEVER seen before! An error yes, but a Super Treasure Hunt error? Never! You got a prize there.
>>
>>9182588
One question, do you prefer extremely realistic looking stock models? Then for mainline, Matchbox has the best looking stock paint and "normal" stock cars. Now if you want rubber tires, metal on metal, meaning metal casting AND base, then Auto World. They have the best looking cars with the most detail of all US makers. The creme of the crop is Tomica Limited Vintage. They run $15.00-$50.00 each but are insanely detailed. Suspension, painted interior, detailed dash and steering wheel. They are pricey but so worth it. Also Hot Wheels Premium lines are good as well. They do Fast And Furious cars, and other movies licenses as well.
The point is what do YOU LIKE? Do some research. I also race my cars and Monster Trucks so I don't keep them sealed, unless it's an error, or a special special car. Good Luck, but beware, SCALPERS have ruined the hobby. When someone INSIDE a store tries to sell you a Hot Wheel he hasn't bought himself for $20.00 you'll see what I mean.
>>
>>9183081
Matchbox detail has always been better. Although lately some "plastic" cheap bumpers have made some classics look lame, but Matchbox is the better of the two.

Guys can you enlighten me on Tarmac Works?
Is it worth it in terms of quality? Is it a full diecast body or some kind of resin/plastic?
>>
>>9186597
I do hate how tacky the grey plastic looks on mainline MBX models when they should look more shiny. Not even chrome, just something that looks like a bumper. I don't even sperg about it not being a metal base unlike some manlets. It's just the ugly shade of grey and the fact that it detracts from an almost 8/10 job on what's basically a 1 dollar toy car that's outdoing an HW in detail.

Maisto's models sometimes have metallic paint. But the quality of the model and the paint are sub par.

>>9186578
I hit a dump bin that I was late to. There should have been 3 or 4 supers, but I only found this one at the very bottom. I have a feeling the scalpers took the good ones and left this "trash" for someone to have. Luckily I like errors.

tore open a Double Vision today. Had no idea the canopy opens and closes on its own when you tilt the car at a 45 degree angle. I had the original when I was a kid, but I don't remember it doing this. Honestly I think my old one was probably broken, even if it did.

Finally after 7 months my local store got hot wheels, it was a c case and grabbed pic rel (completing the card set with my 2nd th ever) and the vettes 5pack.
No delta and was a bit disapponted to see 8ball rodger is just a sticker on the base.
Anyway for the first time in my life i've seen matchboxes (stocked with hws) and there were 2 of those "premiums" (ones with the card box and rubber wheels): bimmer 2002 and a land rover pick up. Really liked how the 2002 looked and its details, so now i know how those premium you talk about are.
Sorry for the blogpost but it was an interesting find

I agree 100%. I don't need a shiny chrome bumper but make it look like a actual bumper, but as you said, $1.00 car $1.00 detail, but that being said Matchbox still blows away the mainline market. Mattel has some nice models, don't get me wrong but realistically Matchbox has it.

Hey errors are unique and one of a kind. I HAVE A Borja Mustang where the Borja Tampo wasn't added. I also have a Mystery Model with a wonky base. A few others.

I'm hyped but too many electric cars, nothing against them and I'm happy we finally get a Kia, but I was hoping for a better Kia than a Seltos, I'd go for the Carnival, Telluride or Soul.
Also no Crosstrek :(( Lots of good stuff for basics/moving parts/collectors though. Also Dodge Durango

>caring about errors
I'm getting into hot wheels for the first time since I was a kid. Do people really find these desireable/valuable? And what kind of "errors"?

On an unrelated note, I just got a Studa-Beaker, I can't believe this casting got retired after a single year, over a decade ago. It's fantastic.

>>9198118
Only retards obsess over the value of errors. (Not you per say, but more like the dipshit 14 year olds on Ebay)
Depends who you ask, I'd say no it's usually worth nothing different to the original car, maybe a cent or 2 higher but that's it.

>I can't believe this casting got retired after a single year
Mattel in a nutshell, make something really good then abandon it not expecting anyone to care when more than likely there is a market for that casting or series.
Only this past 2 years have they been slowly starting to be more like their 2000's selves and that's still a bit of a stretch in the opinions of everyone but me in this thread. There might be a few more cars like it coming back if something like Nashole or 2JetZ is anything to go by.
>>
>>9198118
I find them desirable, but also I only like to collect errors I personally come across in the wild, rather than buying them off of ebay and other people etc. I don't intend to sell them off because I don't think they are collectible as in super treasure hunts and such or really worth anything over the normal value of a car, no idea what the value is but I would not be asking too much of them. I like to collect them because they are not as valuable and resellable as supers, and somewhat easier to come across on pegs and in bins.

Usually keep mine in package because they are broken cars most of the time, so then they'd just be a loose broken car, so I like to imagine being in package adds to the charm, not to mention i can take a loose car and make it a fake error pretty easy, so it's kind of a sign that yes, it was like this when i got it, rather than faking it.

It's a fun, but personal treasure hunt, for myself by myself. In fact the best thing about them is that they have not that much resale value so you don't have to be as anal about it like with super treasure hunts that you can sell off if needed
>>
Spring 2020 let's gooo
>>
>>9198483
I don't obsess over the "value" of any of my Hot Wheels, since A)I don't sell them. B)I open 97% of all my cars and trucks. C)I like the errors because they are unique and one of a kind. Just a cool item to have. Hell I've opened my Super Treasure Hunts as well. Value for me is the fun I have collecting, not saying I have this worth this. I bring up "value" points because some people care about it. That's up to the collector. I personally think scalpers need to be eradicated from the planet, but hey......
>>
>>9198134
Wal Mart has them of side kicks all over the store. If you see a empty one and you ask, they'll probably give you a few. We tossed a crapload of those out in the trash. As for sizes, I've seen shorter and longer ones, but that's it.
>>
Most of these "collectible" errors are easy to reproduce. Missing/misplaced wheels or missing parts are easy to make. Only "valuable" ones are additional printing/printing mistakes as it's almost impossible to do this on your own.

I'm curious now, what's a car you'd guys love to see become a casting? I mentioned the three Kias and Subaru Crosstrek I want in >>9196040, but there's more common city cars I'd love to see be made into diecast... I always liked 2000s cars like the Saturn Vue and Buick Rendezvous. I also think sedans like the Toyota Camry or a Nissan Altima would be cool. or an 90s-2000s Honda accord.

Misprints are only valuable ones. For example Ford logo printed backwards is an interesting error. Or hood print misplaced so it lands on car's roof. Double racing numbers printed one over another. These are rare and unique finds. They are serious errors and even if you open case they will remain proven factory errors.

Missing printing, missing parts, broken parts, etc.. can be fabricated at home. As one anon posted, there is even a way to open packing without damaging it and then re-seal it.

Good luck with fabricating this.

I had the inkling I was touching upon a sore subject for this fandom. Every general on toy has a few. Personally I don't see the appeal in errors unless it's really major or results in something awesome, but the diecast pegs at my local stores are always completely fucking empty, so it's pointless for me either way.

Meantime, I just found out Hot Wheels did one of Syd Meads designs during my dark ages, shame it was just a stand-alone and not part of a series, but oh well. "Cyberpunk Cadillac police cruiser" appeals to me on just about every level.

Thing I hate more is they don't make it anymore, and that there are barely any original limos in HW, last one being Ryura LX. Gov'ner if you're being generous.
>>
>>9199308
Yeah, i would have liked to see some more usage of it, HW is certainly lacking on limos. Wish they had used some different wheels on it; these don't entirely fit the future-vibe. I might try to swap them, but they seem pretty small, not sure what else would be a good-looking fit in the right size.

Buying more overpriced boomer shit. But it's gorgeous boomer shit. Seriously, though, half of these redline club cars I've bought, the packages have reeked of cigarette smoke.

What's "HW DREW" supposed to mean?

"Antifreeze" is a pretty damn accurate name for this color. I almost wanna drink it.

Sorry for spamming, I've been getting new stuff in the mail almost every day and my serotonin levels are peaking.

I'm hyped, looks fun, reminds me of some of the pretty great Speed Racer games back when the movie came out. I hope the inevitable DLC packs aren't too pricy; the roster is good, but there's still a lot more cars I'd like to see.

Just picked up this blue series 62 from this years Cadillac series to go with my gold Deville. I've named them Booster and Beetle. They're best friends.

I wouldn't mind seeing more of peoples' favorite matchbox castings, especially stuff from the past 10-20 years. I've got a lot of catching up to do.

>what's a car you'd guys love to see become a casting?
Specifically, I'd love to see this old 48 racing Caddy, but I'd settle for more antique racers in general, besides the usual 1960s stock car fodder.

I have the Cadillac DeVille Matchbox had done in "premium" line. A couple years back. Rubber tires, nice paint and details. As well as the mainline ones. Matchbox has been stellar with the older Cadillacs and other GM cars. I really want the Chevy Nova but I can't find it. The cases here barely make it to the shelves.
>>

I have the original Mattel Monster Jam Truck. Then the Spin Master re-issue after they took it over. I only grabbed the 2pk not the solo truck. But the Spin Master...much better looks, but not as fast.

>>9200341
I lucked out and found 3 of the Magic 8-Ball cars. I opened one, kept one sealed, and got one for a friend....except he didn't want it. I like the bottoms they have the 8-Ball "comments' under the cars.

With the technology today, the paint or deco removers, errors are fast becoming a new form of counterfeit items. By this I mean there are idiots on YouTube who show how to fabricate errors, and how to open blisters with little to no visible wear on the package. They are unique but unless I find it myself I won't spend a lot on one off eBay.
>>
>>9200941
You are talking about missing prints/deco. Meanwhile anon means decos printed twice or completely wrong. I don't know cheap home method to recreate HW decos. I know about removing them.

Was that the "Lesney Edition" line? Whatever that means? I've come across some cars from it, they all look great. Was thinking of nabbing the Olds Vista Cruiser since my collection is painfully lacking in wagons.

I've recently got into Tomica normal and premium cars. So far I've been picking up a few in stores locally (singapore) but for a few models, they're already sold out. I hunt on other places, like AliExpress and Shopee.

I wanna know, is there a quality difference between the Tomica releases of different countries? As in, domestic Japan releases vs Singapore vs China vs Indonesia (as a lot of Shopee sellers ship from Indonesia and they have their own safety tag on them)? Be it paint quality, QC, materials used. They all have "Made in Vietnam" stamped on them so far.

Eg of a China domestic label - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32920263847.html

Yes, much. I think this looks like an Earth dune buggy or a cool planet exploration vehicle on its own.

Yeah, I'm a total Caddyfag, my grandpa had a ton of them when I was growing up, but pic related was the first I ever rode in. Been praying for a diecast version for years. I'd like to see a premium brand like AutoWorld or Greenlight tackle it, but I'm sure Matchbox would do a stellar job, too.
>>
>>9201188
Sorry I can't answer your question, but I've been thinking about getting into Tomica, too. You should post some pics of what you've got so far.

Actually just pulled the trigger on pic related with some Amazon points, so we'll see how slippery this slope is...

That's a beautiful car.
I'll post 'em when I get some daylight. My favorite thing so far's gotta be the Nissan Leopard.

I know. The spin Master trucks may look better but their axles aren't the best.

Seriously tho, HW has made several variations of the regular Hudson Hornet, so you at least got that. No doubt HW made a Hudson Hornet mold just by the Cars recognition alone.
