Note: For updates on expected shipping date, see below 

Exciting news Hot Wheels fans, we’re partnering with Jim Garbaczewski, publisher of the Hot Wheels Newsletter and Co-Author of Tomart’s Price Guide to Hot Wheels to bring you another amazing resource for your collection. You’ll find the official announcement below –

So I have some exciting news for all those fans of the Tomart Guides who love and miss them. Drumroll, please, because I’m pleased to announce that the Hot Wheels Newsletter is going to be publishing a NEW price guide that covers the period since the last Tomart guide. 

Over the past decade, I’ve continued to work hard logging details of all the latest Hot Wheels releases; model details, photos, colors, variations and, most importantly, pricing information! I’ve been looking for a way to be able to share this with you all in book form for some time, and now, thanks to the folks at hobbyDB who’ve formed a joint venture with me to share the upfront publishing costs, that’s going to become a reality. 

The new HW Newsletter Casting Guide to Hot Wheels will have all the same great images and information you’ve come to expect, and will cover ALL known models released between 2008 and 2017. It’s set to ship in January for $34.99. You can also pre-order it for $24.99 now or $30.99 after the Convention in L.A. in the Hot Wheels Newsletter store, order yours today!

We’re super excited to be involved with this project and will keep you all posted with any updates from Jim!

UPDATE: It’s Official! The newest Hot Wheels Casting & Price Guide has gone to the printer

For those of you who have been patiently awaiting your pre-ordered price guides, we finally have amazing news for you! The Hot Wheels Casting and Price Guide is at the printer and will be ready to ship by April 20! Once we receive the books, we’ll immediately begin shipping them. We will start with those who ordered the book first, but everyone will get their copy ASAP.

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support through this process. You’ll be happy to know that the delay was caused by the addition of more than 100 pages. We definitely think it will be worth the wait, and we hope you will think so too. With 228 pages of details and 3300 color photos, this will surely be the most complete guide of Hot Wheels models released from 2008-2017.

The Hot Wheels Casting and Price Guide will now retail at $49.95 + shipping. If you haven’t ordered your own copy yet, you can do so here.

        When will the new book be shipped and how will it arrive? Will I need to pick it up at the post office?

        • Alex says:

          Hey Gene! Our apologies for the delay in the update. You’ll be able to see more information in the post above, but as you may have guessed, we’ve run into a bit of a delay with publishing. It’s now looking like the book will not ship until closer to the end of February or early March. The good news is we’ve added an additional 50 pages of model cars to the book 🙂 We’ll send tracking as soon as they are shipped! Depending on the address you provide, you may have to pick it up at your post office. The tracking will keep you updated all through to delivery 🙂 Let us know if you have any other questions!

      Hey John! We’re super sorry for the delay in response! We’ve updated the post to reflect the new ship date. As you probably expected, we’ve run into a bit of a delay with the publishing, which was caused by the addition of 50 new pages of model cars! We expect the new shipping date to be end of February or early March. We’ll continue to update folks as we get closer and you will receive tracking as soon as your item ships!
