We’ve teamed up with South Texas Diecast founder Rob Graves to create the world’s most comprehensive Hot Wheels database for fans everywhere to enjoy. Check out the transition in Rob’s own words on his blog.
hobbyDB provides collectors with the tools they’ve been waiting for by allowing members to research details on their items, manage their collection, and even do business with other collectors on the site. You can even open up your own store if you really want to clean out your collection!
As you may know, South Texas Diecast has long been the go-to source for all Hot Wheels knowledge. STDC has worked tirelessly for the last 4 months with hobbyDB to make sure that we know exactly what Hot Wheels fans are looking for in an archive. The partnership is excited to reveal many new features that South Texas Diecast did not have time or the resources to offer. And most importantly, we commit that the data that you’ve always relied on will remain free, forever.
As you also know there are a lot of Hot Wheels we had to archive, and although both parties (and several other Hot Wheels influencers) put in a LOT of effort – you may stumble across an item with information that we missed or a mistake that a collector has made on a catalog entry. The best part about hobbyDB is that the Hot Wheels archive is truly a community project.
We’re asking Hot Wheels collectors of all kinds to pitch in and contribute to the integrity of the archive. Chip in what you know and curate your favorite series or casting of Hot Wheels and ensure that everyone visiting your page receives best information available.

We have worked hard on putting together this information and features for all collectors. If you see something that needs improvement or tweaking, please feel free to email Rob directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or the rest of the hobbyDB team at contact@hobbyDB.com with your suggestions and comments. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
