Big things with little cars

Diecast 101: HW Heritage Series

So the new heritage series has been being found by a few people so far and it seems we all totally forgot about it. Well I figured I would just make a quick post about what it is and what to look for.

(All information taken straight from the Hot Wheels site linked here)

First off, what’s the deal with this series? Why does it even exist? Well Hot Wheels have been releasing premium lines for some time now, and this is its current iteration. Previously we have had the boulevard series and most recently, the Cool Classics line. I for one was quite sad to see it go. The spectrafrost paint jobs alone were worth the premium price.


Just look at these two!

Anywho, apparently they weren’t selling too well (until the last batch that was near-impossible to find for me at least) so Hot Wheels changed it up and has decided to release a new Heritage Line reminiscent of the original redlines (first appeared in 1967) and real-riders (first appeared in 1983) .


So now we will be getting either real-riders, or redlines with each batch.

You’ve probably seen the hawl posts where some of our members found the new cars, but here’s what the cards look like:
