At hobbyDB, we’re always looking for other resources that share our passion to help document our hobby and add gobs of fun to it at the same time. We recently became friends with Jeff Lacroix, who started ‘CarWarz Hot Wheels Review’ in Dec 2015. “I wanted to create a video database of my collection, and make it searchable with the titles containing all collector information, he said. “We’re just approaching 1000 videos, and still have lots to go.”
Of greatest interest to us at hobbyDB would be his 360 degree “Hot Wheels Review” videos. The videos aren’t critical reviews that rate the cars… you can do that for yourself. Instead, they offer a chance to get a good look at a model from all angles, particularly useful on rare variants. He has about 1,000 of them up and is adding more. How much do we like these? We’ll be adding external links to our Hot Wheels listings for cars when there is a video available as an extra resource. See an example of how it works on hobbyDB here. You’ll find the link to the video in the external links section at the bottom of the page.
Jeff has other great plans for his videos. “I also created the 12 CarWarz Raceway to do some racing videos as well.” (Note the HD camera at the finish line in the photo at the top of this page.) So, look for us to post some of that action soon as well.
On another note, his CarWarz Modbogging channel gets about 1.5 million views a month. So if you like real vehicles too, especially ones caked in mud, well, this is for you. Enjoy!
