              At least this has potential over the last Mattel disaster known as "Augmoto"..

                Prediction : HotWheels ID will bomb .... Virtual vs. Reality ...... Virtual wins out !!! ...... I think kids dig virtual more than reality ........ cars going round and round a track again and again , will keep a kids attention for maybe 4 min ... great attempt at adapting a 51 year old concept to modern technology... but you will find in time , that that the combination of the two wasn’t necessary ..... we will have to wait and see ..... I say Apple pulls it off its shelves in 6 months .... cheers

                    good concept, I just dont think it will catch on what hot wheels should do is revive stuff like Acceleracers and make new castings and integrate them into apps/shows, if they want to pursue this NFC tech tbh

                      Damn, Naudus's breasts are more interesting and hotter than the cars!

                        At the cost of $7.00 per car, I'd rather spend the money on a high quality, high detailed, diecast from M2 Machines, GreenLight, or Autoworld. Hot Wheels are the most poorest, low quality diecasts on the market.

                          have you taken a look at their car culture and RLC line though? I agree that mainline HW isnt as detailed, but thats mainly because they're oriented for play first and to fit a blister, although they have taken a greater focus at real/vintage cars as of late

                            Can't wait to hear about people buying these cars, swapping out the NFC bases with regular bases, and returning the car to get their money back. And use the NFC base on the $1 mainline version of the car. I know I would do that. And the clerks at Walmart are too dumb to check any returns.

                                Just wait until Mattel puts Real Riders on 'em. The idiot collectors will go ape shit over them.

                                  Just another product for POS scalpers and hoarders who have NO LIFE to camp out at Walmarts and raid the pegs for.

                                    It's Mattel copying Nintendo's Amiibos, but with cars.

                                      It's Nintendo copying Skylanders, but with Nintendo characters.

                                        Meh! GARBAGE! If I want to tweak stats on a virtual car, I'll play a PC racing sim. If I want to play auto stunt video games, there are tons of apps available to do that on mobile for FREE.

                                                          The thing is most little girls don't have a big collection of Hot Wheels, so what is this woman even talking about?

                                                              This is just data mining under the guise of fun. You pay for expensive "toys" and once you download and sign into the app, then you've relinquished a significant amount of data. All so you can spin a car on a predesignated design. Break the toy out in another 10 years for nostalgic sake, and find the app either gone, or outdated for whatever device you have then.

Women play roles they don't fit in and it clearly shows. If it was a thing that would happen every so often, that would be fine. But it seems to be every piece of entertainment doing it. Netflix has a field day with this idea.
