A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Diecast Heroes

Diecast Heroes is a quarterly print and digital magazine featuring designers, customizers, and collectors of Hot Wheels vehicles.

Diecast Heroes showcases the creativity and ingenuity of diecast customizers while serving to inspire those with a budding interest in the hobby. It is the brainchild of Tony and Carmen Matthews, a husband-and-wife team with an interest in car culture and custom auto projects.  First published in March 2021, each edition brings to life a specific theme applied to diecast vehicles such as video games, cyberpunk, and the sci-fi multiverse.

Recent issues of the magazine feature Hot Wheels designer Larry Wood, collector Bruce Pascal, historian Mike Zarnock, and other notable personalities in the Hot Wheels universe.

A portion of the proceeds from each edition is donated to a charitable “toy run” program.

Discover books, magazines, podcasts, and blogs that celebrate toy history, pop culture, and collecting.
