Hop On The Pop Culture Series!

Fun Castings And Familiar Themes

HWC Gary 03-14-13

When the Hot Wheels brand did a power slide onto the scene back in '68, it burned its way into the hearts and minds of all of us and became popular culture forever. Our Pop Culture series pays tribute to other such phenoms, proving once and for all that Hot Wheels can be linked to anything! After all, who doesn't love cars? It's a part of everyone's life -- and so are these brands.

A couple of new tools will make their debut in the Pop Culture series this year: the Quick D-Livery and the '49 Ford F1. Beloved themes include DC Comics, Looney Tunes and Hanna Barbera. You'll find some exciting (and sometimes surprising) decos on your favorite castings. And, of course, the vehicles in this series will feature Real Riders wheels and die-cast body and chassis.

Some of these have already made their way to the pegs, but there are plenty more where they came from. Here's a complete list to help you get prepared to pop these into your collection!
