I'm thinking that the Custom '77 Dodge Van and Hiway Hauler (1992) are from a series together. They both have red, white & blue stars and stripe decals. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) 12:12, September 27, 2015 (UTC)

Ford GT LM

I have a feeling that the Ford GT LM is a 2016 new model from this site: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hot-Wheels-2016-FORD-GT-GULF-GREAT-COLLECTION-CAR-RARE-/121774994832?hash=item1c5a5af590. If you go through the pictures you will see the base has the Toy# of DHR78. Like every other cars, each cars have a Toy# of it's first debut UYScuti (talk) 05:14, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

No, that still does not make it a New Model. The only reason why it has a new toy number is because the wing has been casted to the body and it is now one continuous piece. Previously, the wing was part of the interior piece. Whenever a car gets recasted like this, a new toy number is assigned. This is a test 86 (talk) 09:12, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
Whenever it gets recasted, a new copyright date is given as well, thus explaining the 2015 on the base. This is a test 86 (talk) 09:16, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
Can you explain the '68 Mercury Cougar as a new model in 2014? UYScuti (talk) 17:38, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
@UYScuti I am thinking you are correct..just a question. When there is a new number on the base, it means it is a new model? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 17:52, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
Whenever the tooling for a car changes, Mattel assigns a new tooling number and copyright date. As for the '68 Mercury Cougar, it is a completely new casting, a widebody racing version of the car. The one that debuted in 2002 is a stock version. This is a test 86 (talk) 18:34, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

T-Hunted picture

I'm also noticing there are other castings such as the red truck and a motorcycle from the external link of Custom '01 Acura Integra GSR. Does anyone have any idea of what those castings are or are they models from another year? UYScuti (talk) 04:36, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

No... ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 12:15, October 4, 2015 (UTC)
Motorcycle is the Kawasaki GPZ 900R from Top Gun for the Retro Entertainment Series. Red truck is '67 Chevy C10 from 2013 New Models. This is a test 86 (talk) 13:38, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

Integra

Wheels are OH5. This is a test 86 (talk) 21:28, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

NA

Need help identifying this car (Not a 2016 Camaro) http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hot-Wheels-2016-Camaro-X8900-TM-GM-Prototype-Rubble-Tires-Never-Release-/111794412817?hash=item1a07775d11

It's not a Camaro at all. It is the ’68 Olds Cutlass Convertible for the Hot Wheels Heritage Real Riders Series. This is not a mainline. This is a test 86 (talk) 06:23, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

Styles and Layout

I just don't know how to create more list templates to enhance the website or to make it look more accurate like the real packaging of the hot wheels and I also need help with coloring the font for the HW Mild to Wild in Blue and Red UYScuti (talk) 02:12, October 15, 2015 (UTC)

That's going to be impossible... ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 13:13, October 15, 2015 (UTC)
Done Mild to Wild series has colors! Like it? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 13:26, October 15, 2015 (UTC)
I know what you mean. It is really messed up. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 01:02, October 16, 2015 (UTC)

Template:List00LightRed

Hey! I just created a new template called List00LightRed. It is a crimson-red color. It might help with all the reds this year. Thanks!! ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 22:53, October 15, 2015 (UTC)

Teach me how to..... I just don't get it UYScuti (talk) 02:00, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Teach you how to what? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 13:27, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
To create a new Template like you did UYScuti (talk) 23:29, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Really? Ok. I really just copied the coding from another one and pasted it fixing things to give it a different color. Now I'm going to use List00Blue as an example. This is what it should look like:

<noinclude>{| class="wikitable" style="border:1px solid '''#0000FF''';" border="1" cellspacing="1></noinclude> |- |{{{1}}} |{{{2}}} |{{{3}}} |bgcolor="'''blue'''"|<font color="''white''">{{{4}}}</font> |{{{5}}}<noinclude> |}</noinclude><noinclude></noinclude>

Now we need some color other than blue. The bold text above os stuff you have to change. The italicized is something you may and may not have to. Now where it says #0000FF, we need something other than blue. That means blue....I recommend the website http://www.isdntek.com/demo/internetcolors.htm. It shows most of the basic colors and numbers for them. We need to get a color like...Aliceblue #F0F8FF. If you swap out above #0000FF with #F0F8FF, that will be a start. Next, see where it says "blue" in bold? Swap that out with "Aliceblue." And finally, the italicized word. Where it says "white" that means the text color. We want it to be black for this template because we are using a whiteish color. If anybody else has a better idea of how to do this, please say! This is what the finished template should look like:

{{{1}}} {{{2}}} {{{3}}} {{{4}}} {{{5}}}

I do know how to do that, but how do you go to a page where you create a new page like create a new casting UYScuti (talk) 17:53, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
Well...what are you using? Wikia skin or Monobook? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 18:09, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
Show me the way you do it to create one like that. UYScuti (talk) 18:56, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
First I have to know if you are using Wikia or Monobook. Mono book is the old skin and Wikia is the updated new skin. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 19:02, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
I think I know how to create a template page now just by experimenting it. Thanks for trying to help me. And I use the new skin UYScuti (talk) 19:05, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
Ok then. Good luck. :) ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 19:07, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
But if only I know how to create a Gradient color of Green and Lime template for the HW Exotics segment. UYScuti (talk) 19:11, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
As I said earlier, visit http://www.isdntek.com/demo/internetcolors.htm. It has all the basic colors. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 21:21, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
Template:List00YellowGreenLime Well I'm on the right track, but it doesn't really work when I add it to the HW Exotics segment UYScuti (talk) 02:43, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah...it looks great though! ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 12:15, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
I'll try to fix it soon UYScuti (talk) 16:39, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
Good! ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 23:20, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

HW Mild to Wild

Does anyone notice that the HW Mild to Wild segment is similar to the Then and Now segment? UYScuti (talk) 16:39, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

Then and Now is all real cars, Mild to Wild is a mix of real and fake. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 23:19, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

List of 2016 Hot Wheels by Case

I have an idea! It is so confusing with all the models we have at the moment on the list...when case C comes out next month, we are going to be all messed up. I think we should create a page called List of 2016 Hot Wheels by Case. This will allow visitors to see what came out in what case and also help us not get overwhelmed. What do you say? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 12:41, October 19, 2015 (UTC)

Done Done. You can find the template for it at my Sandbox. ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉ (ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) • (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) • (3,573 + ᵉᵈ'ᵗˢ!) 12:48, October 19, 2015 (UTC)
