We heard whispers shortly after the 2010 Holidays ended about what Mattel had in store for their Hot Wheels brand in 2011. We knew we wouldn’t be disappointed with what they were bringing to the table for Hot Wheels fans and we know you won’t be either.
We have 5 new Hot Wheels products to tell you about today. A few are available now and the others will be headed to store shelves in Fall 2011. I know. That sounds like so far away! Check out what’s new and tell us what item you are looking forward to the most.
Bigger and badder than ever, Hot Wheels® brings new thrilling vehicle experiences to Monster Jam® fans with the Grave Digger® Ultimate Stunt Jumper. This legendary 9.5-inch scale colossal vehicle catches huge air nailing front flips, back flips and even side flips! Boys can create their own stunts and control the flipping action – just lock Grave Digger® in place and push it forward to watch all the over-the-top action. No batteries required. For ages 5 and up.
Hot Wheels® Rev Ups™ vehicles defy gravity! They stick to steel surfaces - refrigerators, cabinets, lockers and more – allowing them to climb horizontally, vertically and even upside-down! Rev up these 1:64 scale vehicles and watch them go…and go…and go! Kids can also create the ultimate Rev Ups™ environment with the Hot Wheels® Rev Ups™ Skyhigh Speedway™ play set. The set comes complete with a vertical climb, an upside-down Hot Wheels® loop and zip line that unleash the gravity-defying stunts that make Rev Ups™ so cool. For ages 5 and up.

Hot Wheels® Video Racer Vehicle
Hot Wheels® brings thrilling experiences to boys of all ages with Video Racer, its first action video camera encased inside a 1:64 scale vehicle — allowing boys to capture and produce high quality, 30 frames per second (FPS) footage of their ultimate Hot Wheels® driving experiences. With 12 minutes of memory and a built-in LCD screen on Video Racer’s chassis, boys can utilize the real time playback and delete functionality to make sure they captured the desired footage. Video Racer is track compatible—putting boys in the driver’s seat with a 1:64 scale point of view from the craziest loops to the fastest straight-aways.
For even more dynamic play opportunities, boys can place Video Racer in its protective case that attaches to almost anything—skateboards, bikes, helmets or R/C vehicles—with the included Velcro straps, clips, brackets and adhesive strips. Using Video Racer’s editing software, boys simply upload their footage using the camera’s USB port and utilize drag and drop options with preloaded music, scene transitions or special effects.
For ages 5 and up. Coming Fall 2011.
Hot Wheels® Wall Tracks Assortment
For the first time ever, Hot Wheels® takes its iconic track off the ground and places it on the wall allowing boys to experience track play in an entirely new way. This unique track innovation delivers the same thrilling stunts that Hot Wheels® is known for – speed, turns and tricks – and takes it to new heights.
Packaged with a simple installation template, along with Command™ Strips from 3M, parents can easily hang the Wall Tracks™ without concerns over wall damage. Boys will be excited with the robust product line that includes a Starter Set* which features three stunts, two turns, and a cool jump. Also offering three sets of tracks in the Basic Assortment*, each of these sets come with two stunts and one really dynamic turn. Completely, modular, the track pieces can be moved around and mixed and matched to allow for maximum creativity and fun.
Taking up minimal space, Wall Tracks™ don’t require additional storage. Since Wall Tracks™ were designed to also go around corners, boys can fit their Wall Tracks™ behind a room door, closet door or just along the corner of their room. Every Wall Tracks™ product comes packaged with a Hot Wheels® die cast car. Not for use with some Hot Wheels® vehicles. *Name subject to change.
