On the Lighter Side: Hot Wheels Previews Over 30 Cars During San Diego Comic-Con Panel

Written by Christopher Smith, Motor1


SDCC is all online this year, but Hot Wheels isn't holding back.

In a normal year, over 100,000 people would be swarming the San Diego Convention Center right now for the annual San Diego Comic-Con. 2020 is far from being a normal year, and while the in-person activities are canceled, the show must go on. Numerous online events and panels are scheduled, such as the one held by Hot Wheels earlier today.

Hot Wheels has long offered special Comic-Con exclusives. This year includes two homages to Hollywood blockbusters, including a neat-o X-Wing diorama from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Hulk riding in the back of a Land Rover as seen in Avengers: Endgame. Perhaps of more interest, however, are the several sneaks – AKA previews of future offerings – that Hot Wheels revealed during its video panel earlier today. If you missed it, the clip is available below.



The sneaks focus not on conventional Hot Wheels car designs, but decidedly unconventional machines with themes ranging from Japanese pop culture to video games, kids toy lines, and more. While car buffs generally love Hot Wheels of all shapes and sizes, we’re not sure how enthusiasts will feel about the new line of Rugrats-themed cars, though Chuckie the beach buggy is pretty cool. For that matter there’s also Bruce, the toothy shark from Finding Nemo recreated as a bodacious 6x6, and Snow White gets an elegant 1930's coupe. And if you can’t get enough of Hello Kitty, you’ll find no less than three character-themed cars coming soon.
