hobbyDB and The Toy Peddler Visit the 36th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention

The 36th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention rolled into Los Angeles last weekend and hobbyDB was there to rev its engines, including an exciting new upcoming Larry Wood collectible!

Thousands flooded the LAX Marriott between Oct. 5-9 to reconnect with the community, take part in live talks with industry experts, and, of course, search for their grails and more in room-after-room packed to the ceiling with Hot Wheels from every era.

Larry Wood Trading Card

We’re excited to tease a new exclusive from Larry Wood. The legendary Hot Wheels designer will be releasing a collection of trading cards based on some of Larry’s favorite renderings.

Check out a sneak peek here and stay tuned for more information regarding these cards, which will be available later in the year.
