new models going down hill
has anyone else noticed how the new models casting has gone down hill progressively since 2004??? 2011 is the worst ever!! The list has rarely any new models at all!!! Most of them are just relicensing of models from 2008, 2009 and 2010.How many almost identifical camaros and shelbies, and reventon's are they going to cast as new models??? minor versions like F355 Challenge that never made to first editions, would be recycled and packed as new models by nowadays hot wheels terrible standard for what a new model is.

There is a need for new casting, all the same cars all the time. Well good for collectors who dont want doubles which means lesser cars to buy, bad for mattel as they lose out on repeat customers.

I agree with the above articles, many of the NEW MODELS are just re tooles of previous castings. Even most of the new models are for 2011, vw brasilla? are you kiddin' just like the vw type 181, there are still like 7 FE's of those in stores that nobody wants!-- SyndicateOfSpeed 14:19, December 20, 2010 (UTC)
Are Dragsterz same name as HW Drag Racers ?
They already made a 1958 Plymouth Fury "Christine" in 2009 the T-Hunt fury was red just like the car in the movie. (Ferrari458Italia 15:26, December 14, 2010 (UTC))
- I think they should reissue it again, did not see that T-hunt fury in 2009, may not be available in my area.
If you go to ebay right now and search "hot wheels plymouth fury" they have several of the regular t-hunts for well under $10 in fact most are under $5. (Ferrari458Italia 05:20, December 16, 2010 (UTC))
Hey, Like yourselfs i have been adding and correcting information on the 2011 HW's. I got three different cars each in a different category, HW Garage, HW Racing, HW Auction, None of which are listed or have the T. Would like to here from someone with info.
- What are the casting names?

- 56 Merc, Ford GT LM, Lambo Reventon, I remembered that the 2010 series have the R, So i checked and found that there exclusive from Kmart.
15 Treasure Hunts
how come there are 15 treasure hunt in 2011 insted of the normal 12
Because they decided to relase 15 this year instead of 12. My guess is that Mattel assumes that more hunts throughout the year will bring more people out searching for them. While looking for the hunts, people are prone to buy other mainline castings. Profit, profit, profit is really what they are after. They are just another business looking to make $$$.
- There is 15 case codes of cars for each model year. It was stated that they increased the treasure hunts to 15 so each case code would have it's own model. 06:24, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
- It just bothers me to no end that I can be out there looking every week, and not see a single Treasure Hunt car. Ever!
