Why did you delete the descriptoin for the Reventon I put??? SyndicateOfSpeed 00:10, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

This is a wiki about Hot Wheels, There has been a recent wave of editors adding trivial information on real cars. If anyone needs to know anything about a production car this is not the place to look it up, Nor do we intend to make it such. Any information added needs to have references noted, you cant just copy and paste info from other random sites. I am not picking on you, I just start the cleaning process on car descriptions that have the un-needed ==Description== tag. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 17:54, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

New Admin

Hey David, I just wanted to let you know that I made you an admin today. Your work here has been great as well as your handling of our "special users". You should have all of the privileges that I have like deleting pages/stolen art, and banning users who fail to comply with our rules. If for some reason you don't want this let me know, but otherwise congrats! BigBadBrad01 17:38, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations David! You are an example to follow. Although never reach your level of work because of the many lines that never come to my country. Due to lack of export. Still try to be at the required level. Anything you know where I am. CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN! Serralson 18:52, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you Brad!! This means a lot to me! Hopefully I will be able to keep my "tact" in check. I know it hard for us to all agree sometimes. I look forward to continuing the fun for the 2011 model year! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 20:42, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

New Skin

Hi. I'm Wendy, a helper with the community team at Wikia. All of our wikis are being changed to a new skin design over the next few weeks. I have gone ahead and started customizing the appearance of this wiki with some basic colors from your monaco skin. Please feel free to customize further, or upload a new logo, using the Theme Designer. Please let me know if you have any quesitons. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 15:46, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

new skin

Hi David, I'm glad you (mostly) like the new skin. We're in the middle of rolling out the new look for all wikis, and there are some obvious changes to note. Unfortunately, changing the width is not something we can do at this time. If you haven't seen it yet, please check out the new FAQ and if you have any questions, our Community team will be happy to respond via Special:Contact. If there's anything else I can help with, please let me know and I'll try to help as best I can :) — scarecroe@fandom 23:25, October 22, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, Sinnin. Question for you. On my talk page you said, "We do make an acception for HWC sneek images to be used as temporary place holders." I created the Honda S2000 page & put the "2011HondaS2000HWC.jpg" image on it in the casting box & the photo in the table. Tha 92 Roadmast3r went behind me and took the pic off of the table and wrote "DONT USE HWC IMAGES!!!" in the summary box. So my question is: Is there only a certain place that we can consider HWC images as placeholders? Like on the List of 2011 Hot Wheels page but not on the individual car pages? Just want to get some clarification to make sure I do things correctly. Thanks. Stezton 12:22, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Stezton greetings.As far as the images of HWC are allowed. As a temporary image. And it must be replaced in when taking a photo of the model, which is already in stores. This is because of HWC images may contain differences from the final model for sale. By the way I have restored your previous version. A greeting.Serralson 15:11, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
As serralson said, HWC images are allowable untill a user image is available. We can all moderate each other here for the greater good of the wikia, Some of us just do a better job then others, you have witnessed the lesser side of this. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 19:56, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

hi sinnin. what i have here is FOR REAL! THIS IS NO JOKE! i have a yello 70 nightbrnrs chevell. i painted it silver. later i removed the paint to find it had metal dk blue paint UNDER THE YELLOW ORIGINAL!!!! WT! NO JOK I WILL POST A PIC SOON!!! ANY IDEAS?

The repaints are common, I dont care for them and I seem to have many chipped cars with a different colors underneath (they seem to chip easier with the extra paint). You can also find them by looking at the rivets. as the painted rivet will crack and reveal the bottom layer when crimped Sinnin  talk  Contributions 00:17, October 31, 2010 (UTC)


David will expose this issue before does not lead to a possible confrontation and offer an idea to solve it.

The descriptions of the Hot Wheels, which are based on real models. It would have to write in a more brief and short. And put it below the descriptions of the models. For a better visualization. As I made the Ferrari 458 Italia, and the Lamborghini Reventon. It's just an idea, and I hope will please everyone. A greeting.Serralson 00:08, November 2, 2010 (UTC)

I feel the descriptions should go on top. as this has been the standard layout used for "generations" of editors here. My personal opinion is that ALL info should be related to the Hot Wheels car and not to the full size 1:1 car. But that is my opinion. If you guys want to write descriptions then that is fine, please do so in an essay style paragraph. The issue here has been illegal copying of info from one site and pasted onto ours. Just like the picture issues that everyone is slowly starting to understand. If you did not write it, you cant post it here! You need to obtain permission. and if you do have permission then you have to leave a reference. This is a lot of work, so its easier to just write it yourself. Or better yet, forget about it and just enjoy hot wheels. If you cant find anything Hot Wheels related that can be added (or fixed), then please dont make any edits!

omg! today i found a super t hunt. guess where? in sears! if you have a sears near u go to the boys section. look for some hw shirts with cars ATTACHED IN A BAG , if you remove the car it rings up as a normal car!!! good luck! -syndicateofspeed

T-Hunt Alert!

Hi sinnin, and anyone else who looks here, if you go to a sears store, go to the boys section, look for some hot wheels shirts with cars attached. I found a super T hunt 69 mustang in one! If you find a keeper, remove it from the bag, it will ring up as a normal car!

Template category

Hi! It looks like a category was added here on Nov 1st. I went ahead and removed it for now. If you'd like that template to stay in the category, you can place it between noinclude tags like this: <noinclude>[[Category:Template]]</noinclude>. As for the casting pages still there, they'll clear out with the server cache in a few hours, a day at most. — scarecroe@fandom 16:23, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Table Widths

Is there a specific way to keep tables from going under the righthand wikia boxes (like on this page Purple Passion Woody)?

Currently there are issues between our tables and the wikia brands new skin. The powers that be claim it is better this way. We have to either find a fix for this or wait it out. Personally I am waiting it out, I have run out of people to ask for help. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 07:07, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
I was about to ask the same question. This new skin is VERY annoying. So far I haven't found anything I like better about it. I really miss the previous version. For a short period I figured out that I could change my preference to use the previous version, but they took that option away now too. Do you know where to click to bring up the "history" of a page? Vista69 04:30, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
For the most part the history can be viewed from the "edited by" drop down located right under the page name. To get history from a page that does not have this dropdown, so need to play with the URL and manually create a link. I have added a link for the main page at the bottom of the page right under the banner. It is apparent that wikia has lost its interest in its product, and is only concerned with its advertisement space and profits. (view this site logged out) I hate to say, but I am sure this is the beginning of the end for wikia. I am currently trying to figure out how to back up and save the site content for when the time does come, we can just pack up and leave... as other wikia are doing.

2011 list corrections?

i think the segment series which starts with the ice cream truck is not in the 2011 line up Slickchooch 18:08, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

You dont really think "Unsorted" is something we thought was a 2011 segment series? Do i really need to clarify that? Sinnin  talk  Contributions 19:57, November 30, 2010 (UTC)
No I don't think that "unsorted" is something that you thought was a 2011 segment series. I may be dumb but I am not stupid.
My point is that I don't see how this fits into the lineup, when all of the series have been identified.
Perhaps you can clear this up.....remember you have to go s-l-o-w for me, I might not be able to grasp
the concept.Slickchooch 14:46, December 1, 2010 (UTC) after some thought, is the segment series with the Ice Cream Truck pictured and so forth is a holding area for those cars until they are "sorted" into the proper sub-line or "series"?Slickchooch 16:11, December 1, 2010 (UTC)
Thats exactly it. Mattel is sneaking the new cars without confirming the designated series. The unsorted table was added as an attempt to keep people from guessing and placing cars into unconfirmed series tables. After the series is confirmed the car can be placed into the appropriate table and removed from unsorted. Since this is an open source database, it becomes very easy to add false information. We strongly rely on the collective knowledge of true collectors to filter out the bad information from the "children" who's primary knowledge of hotwheels is "borrowed" from other websites, assumed or just simply made up.

Wikia in 2011

Hey all, we are off to a good start this year. I really want to thank some of our newer members (Stezton and Tszuta) who are really taking charge and keeping up with the new mainlines! Great pictures and efforts. This really gives me a needed break to concentrate on other things (mainly warcraft lately!!!!!!)

I have submitted a request to disable the "Read More" feature at the bottom of pages. Personally I hate this pointless navigation clutter, and i'm sure many of you do too! I am going to try and find a change for those main page navigation images that link to catagory lists, as personally I dont navigate using catagories and feel the main page should not direct users to these partial lists.

Your pictures were not removed because i thought they were stolen. The gallery is not meant to be a showcase for you to place a picture of every car in your collection. The gallery should only be used to display images of FULL cards, comparison images. special details, or if your image is of superior quality to the image being used in the table. Many of the gallerys are full of unneeded images that I will pull out when i get the chance. Nothing personal against you, I just feel excess clutter in unnecessary. For you i would recommend placing your images on your personal page. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 11:03, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Stolen Images - Ignoring My Warning - Pass The Ban Stick My Way

Hi David,

I discovered another user posting images from South Texas Die Cast. I had removed the images and warned him but obviously since I am not an admin my words don't mean much. He has posted the pictures again. Can you do something about this? Here is a link to the users talk page where I posted the warning. I had a similar issue with the 2 Cool page. The user made edits. I fixed the issues. The user then destroyed the entire page. We don't need people like that around here.

Thanks. -Tony Tszuta | Talk 18:43, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Yes the Images are from T-Hunted's blog. This car is a big deal with the brazillian collectors, So im sure he wont be the only person trying to upload it. T-Hunted has little remorse about taking pictures from other sites. So perhaps we should return the favor.... Maybe i will just ask permission. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 21:28, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

Sinnin appreciated. Unfortunately I must inform you, from another photo stolen from flickr. Rblemmy the user has placed in the section Porsche 911 GT2. The photo has been marked for proper disposal.

It also informs you that this User:Rblemmy usually change the file name. Putting in a totally useless, one letter at end of file. To try to mask their origin. Since I'm not the one to take action, leave it in your hands the appropriate action.

Weirdness on the 2004 page

Some user named Baileyknasel moved the "List of 2004 Hot Wheels" page to "List of Solamon" then moved "List of Solamon" to "List of 2004 hot wheels". I first noticed the weird changes to the "List of 2004 hot wheels" page and reverted the edits before I realized all of the moving that had been done. I thought I would move "List of 2004 hot wheels" to "List of 2004 Hot Wheels" but it gave me the warning:

The page could not be moved: a page of that name already exists, or the name you have chosen is not valid. Please choose another name, or ask an administrator to help you with the move. Please do not manually move the article by copying and pasting it; the page history must be moved along with the article text.

So I just backed away from it and decided to write you about it. Stezton 16:16, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Please make sure that the image used on the Astro Funk page belongs to the user (Ionut46). I found it on a blog and assume that is where it originated. Here is a link:

With this said, I have reason to believe that the last 2 files posted by the user are not theirs. I can not locate them anywhere yet, but I am searching.

I would have changed the Astro Funk image myself but the page has been locked.

Tszuta | Talk 13:04, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing it outm I will just leave the astrofunk image, since it is a cropped view of the poster image. But the other images definately require attention. The astrofunk page is locked because this is the second time it has had mass edits and the car is not even close to coming out. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 19:48, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Chevy '57 make me crazy

Hi Sinnin

Hi my friends, everybody crazy for HW. Again a little help. I have this Chevy:

under the HW it is written '57 Chevy, made in 1977.

The lateral windows are strage: little compared to the style of '57 Chevy.

I thought about a McDonald's serie. But I cannot find any info

SINNIN, and you all, can you help me again?

Thanx a lot

Paolodecapitani 11:58, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

it is a 1991 mcdonald's happy meal toy, based on the 1978 first edition, '57 chevy thunderbird. the 1977 is just the copyright. hotwheels are always copyrighted one year before they are released. i hope this helps! -1:64 13:52, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
Lets all pretend that ford made the '57 T-Bird =P I would be curious to see a picture of chevy written on the bottom that car. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 19:28, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

PLEASE READ - 2011 Nostalgia Line

Hey everyone I am going to start a page for the upcoming Nostalgia line. As easy as that sounds, this series is unique in the fact that the packages will not say nostalgia. If you have seen the card art you will know that this series is packaged to reflect the brand it is based on. Eg He-Man, DC Comics, Hersheys, etc. It also appears to be unique for each car.

So i thought it would be best to ask you guys your opinion on the best layout for the page. I have given this much thought and am favoring a table that has two image columns, one for loose and one for full card. as i believe each card will be of interest to all collectors, and should be photo worthy. I am also thinking of grouping each brand together. similiar to the 2011 Hot Wheels Garage with seperate table.

Please share your thoughts! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 06:09, April 29, 2011 (UTC).

sounds great to me, when will the series come out and where will they be sold? -1:64 11:36, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
I wasn't even aware of this line until I read your post. I went and watched the videos and wowza! Very nice! Having seen the video I agree that a column of loose & a column of carded would be a good idea. Stezton 12:09, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

SINNIN i have that camaro in your collection picture. is it worth anything like the other cars? SyndicateOfSpeed 01:04, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

the 1995 treasure hunt 67 camaro is the most valuable of all treasure hunts. In it's peak they were selling for 500 plus currently on eBay they seem to go for 200-300. It was the first car I ever bought from the collector market. I paid 20 for it in 1995, and I thought that was a lot!! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 02:38, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

On the "overpopulation"in some galleries.

After thinking calmly and review some pages. I think it would be appropriate to revise some image galleries. Since some pictures are populated, poor quality, or that have nothing to do with the model, or produce confusion. And in the worst photos stolen from other sites that have been camouflaged.

I expose as an idea. The possibility of transferring to the personal page of each user. The photo that is deemed unnecessary. Building Section: ==Personal Gallery==. (Because I think it is sad also eliminated. For it may have been taken, with the best of intentions.)

So I just would leave the pictures, that showed a significant difference (as in the case of Datsun Bluebird 510) differences in paint colors and prints and versions "custom. " Not greatly altered the original model. (As might be the case in the gallery of Bone Shaker and Nissan Skyline GT-R R34)

Transferring the remaining considered unnecessary, the gallery of the author. As a supporter to lead by example, I've created my personal gallery. And in the next few days will be moving my photos it deems appropriate.

I consider this idea modestly maintain order in pages, and will look much better. And I know that users like Stezton would help me.

I can only wait for the opinion of the administrator, and other users who feel free to opine.

Greetings to all from Barcelona (Spain). And again sorry for my bad English.

I upset many people with my opinion that things here need to be kept simple. I trim off as much excess as I can. I even remove gallery images all the time. There are certain people here who will keep adding new pictures no matter how many times I tell them not to. I can't get mad at them, because I truly believe that they just don't understand. I find it best to only remove the images while the person who added them is not active on the site. And if you want to do that then please do, remove all you want! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 01:47, May 7, 2011 (UTC)
The simplicity is often the secret of everything. I appreciate your permission. I'll start working on it. A greeting.Serralson 02:43, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Proposed removal of HWC images.

I believe the reason we allow HWC images is because our request to obtain permission to use them went unanwsered. They are copyright images and the windows PC Right-click and save method is disabled. (although they are easily saved on a MAC)

On this site it seems the only people who add them also steal images from other sites. They are never added properly, and they create unwanted work for the rest of us who remove them or have to fix the edits.

So i am propsing that we change our rule on allowing them, Because honestly i am sick of dealing with them. and i feel we will be better off without them!

Let me know what you guys think! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 03:56, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with you, Sinnin. When I first started I uploaded some HWC pics but after I saw how short the time was before they showed up on shelves, I stopped because it didn't seem worth it. Stezton 10:32, May 12, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with you as well. I go by this simple rule - If I don't have the casting in-hand, the information I am adding may be incorrect. Tszuta | Talk 12:37, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for cleaning up my 'Radio Flyer' photo. I knew the thumbnail was off, but was not sure what the proper setting was. Can you tell me how that should be set for next time? Thanks,


when you are making edits the provided editor tool is very limited (and currently buggy) to properly add images you will need to go into source mode and change the coding manually. This is easier then it sounds, and just takes a little practice. Basically you need to locate the image code and remove the "thumb" wording and adjust the size. Eg. Image.jpg|thumb|100px needs to read image.jpg|75px. Good luck! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 12:12, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

thanks for the welcome...

Thanks for the welcome aboard message. My 4 year old and I have recently purchased a bunch of Hot Wheels (ok, so we're at 23 cars and 3 sets since Christmas!) and we have significantly reduced our TV watching time and increased our "can we play Hot Wheels?" time. We love the color changers (to quote the 4 year old "it changes color!!!" so we'll be trying to update the statuses on those (already found some where I can help out). And we bought a ten-pack today that had 4 Shelby Mustangs in it (Mommy needed an "Eleanor"...)

Thanks again for the welcome message.


hey, was ready some 'above messages' about issues with pictures - I try to take good pics, but they sure as heck don't look like the ones on the site. Are these worth posting? I was wondering why the site lacks a lot of pictures and the "Hot Wheels Collectors" being angry would be a valid reason. I don't know why they'd be upset, I get better info here than I do at their site.

We have lots of issues with people posting pictures that are not theirs. Inforcing our rules creates conflict and ultimately enemies of the site. We may be still missing a lot of images, but its more fun to acquire the cars and photograph them rather then steal them from other sites. I currently have around 2000 cars photographed and posted, and i still have many more to go, not including the new ones arriving in my collection on a constant basis. So between me and the few others that are currently adding pictures, we are filling the voids as best we can. You can add any image that we need, the only advice i can offer to maintain there usage on the site is a white piece of paper under the car as a back drop and becoming familiar with the cropping feature on you favorite photo editing software. Following the continuity of the site keeps us all happy as we would rather all spend our time adding new content rather then fixing someone elses mistakes.Sinnin  talk  Contributions 03:28, May 29, 2011 (UTC)

Cough, cough

Hey, I'm new to this whole Hot Wheels Wikia thing, but I can tell that you are missing a couple of pages. I have a lot of older hot wheels, and you seem to be missing a few. For example, I have a white Chevy Camaro Z-28 with flames on the sides, and it isn't on the Hot Wheels Wikia. But that's just a few. Anyways, I would be glad to help out on the website and stuff. :) RoadTripStu1997 00:42, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to the wiki, Please feel free to add your missing images! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 07:06, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

I have a relatively simple question.

I have a Ford Thunderbird by my side (The Hotwheels car, of course), and it says it was copyright 1989. If you type in 1989, would that show the year of copyright, or would I have to flip through years around 1989?


DavisBrendon29 23:14, June 1, 2011 (UTC)

I assume your referring to the T-Bird Stocker. Date on the bottom is the copyright year an is always 1 year prior to the casting release.

If you type in 1989 you will get model year and not copyright year. So always add one before starting your search. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 00:53, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Updated images

Hi Sinnin, I uploaded a few images yesterday, but after a while I decided to update them. Unfortunatelly, once more, the updated images appear squeezed on thumb view but then nice when you click them for full view

Would you please fix it? I swear this is the last time I update a pic, because it always happen


Victorrfr 02:31, June 3, 2011 (UTC)

it has something to do with the cache on the host computer, sometimes it takes a day or two to correct itself. Just be patient. Otherwise change the filename and just upload as a new image. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 02:58, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
