Hot Wheels has made several models I like during the years, but their business practices really hack me off. Their lawyers seem to have nothing better to do than hassle people who have been loyal collectors for years. Why? It seems that Mattel wants to exercise total control over the name and prevent it and its symbols from being used in websites, email names, etc. Again... why? Like many big corporations, they were slow to make their presence known on the web. Is corporate sloth a good reason to batter folks into turning over domain names? Also, it seems to me that the more prevalent your name is, the more name recognition your company gains. With a loyal buyer base like that for Hot Wheels, the current legal jyhad seems to be misguided. That's my $0.02. Before folks get the idea that I hate the cars themselves (well...maybe a few <grin>), they have been really good about producing new models...many of them decent. I do think that competition from Johnny Lightning is largely responsible for this. Just don't get me started on the cost of the Internet Busses, and the coupling of them with unrelated items. Enough of my soapbox...I do still like HW VWs (especially sunagons, vanagon models, the bug, etc.)!!! Below are HW items I have for trade.
