How It Works

Casting Database Help

The Hot Wheels® Casting Database Checklist is intended to ultimately be a full catalog of all Hot Wheels® cars and variations! It allows you to browse or search our listings, and as a registered RLC™ member you can also create your own Checklist of "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want," and "Cars To Offer."

Help Topics:

Search the Casting Database: Use the Search feature to look for specific cars in the Database. You'll have to know some of the details about the car you're looking for, and enter it in the appropriate fields, in order to find that car in the Database. Search the Hot Wheels® Casting Database for all the cars we have currently listed, or Search under "My Checklist" to see cars you've added: "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want" or "Cars To Offer," or your Whole Checklist! This is a good feature for adding cars you Have to your Checklist.

Browse the Casting Database: Use the Browse feature to have a look around and discover cars you may not realize exist. Browse the Hot Wheels® Casting Database for all the cars we have currently listed, or Browse under "My Checklist" to see cars you've added: "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want" or "Cars To Offer," or your Whole Checklist! This is a good feature for adding cars you Want to your Checklist.

Create Your Checklist: You can set up your own Checklist consisting of "Cars I Want," "Cars I Have," or "Cars To Offer." All you have to do to start is to sign in to your RLC™ account and start adding cars by doing the following:

  • Search or Browse the Database to find a car or cars you'd like to add to your "My Checklist."
  • When the Search listing returns the car or cars you'd like to add to your "My Checklist," there are two options for doing so:
    1. Option 1: On the search result page, you may check the box for "Have" (indicating this is a car you Have in your possession) or "Want" (indicating this is a car you Want to acquire) next to the car or cars you would like to add, and then click on the "Update My Checklist" button at the bottom. You can also add all the cars on the search result page by clicking the "All" button near the bottom. Please note that when you check the "All" box, it only applies to the records being displayed on that page. You'll need to navigate through all the pages one by one, and repeat this step each time you want to add an entire page to your Checklist.
    2. Option 2: Click on the photo image to view the individual entry for that car. On the individual entry page, check either the box marked "Have" (indicating this is a car you Have in your possession), or the box marked "Want" (indicating this is a car you Want to acquire). Then click on "Update my Checklist."
  • The car or cars will now be in your Checklist, as either a "Have" or a "Want." You may continue to add cars to your "My Checklist" by repeating this process.
  • For any "Cars I Have," you may designate them as "Cars To Offer," which means that they're up for trade within the community. (You may only offer a car that's already in your possession.)

    To do so, Search or Browse your "My Checklist" to bring up the listing for any particular car or "Cars I Have." Or simply click the "Cars I Have" button at the bottom to bring up a listing of all the cars you already Have. On the results page, you may check the box for "Offer" (indicating you want to make this car available for trade within the community) next to the car or cars you would like to offer, and then click on the "Update My Checklist" button at the bottom.

    You can also add all the cars on the result page by clicking the "Check All" button near the top. Please note that when you check the "All" box, it only applies to the records being displayed on that page. If you have a lot of cars and there are multiple pages of results, you'll need to navigate through all the pages one by one, and repeat this step each time you want to offer an entire page from your Checklist.

When you're satisfied with your "My Checklist," you can choose to Browse or Search just within your Checklist by selecting the button marked "My Whole Checklist." You may further streamline a search within your Checklist by specifying either "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want," or "Cars To Offer."

View Your Checklist: At any time, you may view your Checklist in four ways: "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want," "Cars To Offer" or "My Entire Checklist." When Searching or Browsing, select the button marked "My Whole Checklist."

You may further streamline a search within your Checklist by specifying either "Cars I Have," "Cars I Want" or "Cars To Offer." Remember: you must be signed in.
