1984 saw the relese of 18 new models and a high number of repaints/reissues to put the total count for the year in the high 90's. A new wheel and series was introduced: The Ultra Hots, which were touted by Mattel as "The Fastest Breed of Hot Wheels." The Real Riders line continued, showing great appeal to collectors. They didn't roll much, but they displayed well, and are still highly valued to this day. Gold Hot Ones wheels also made several appearances, along with Blackwalls.

Quoted values are for LOOSE, NM examples. Cars less than NM will obviously command a lesser value than listed, depending on overall condition. Unless otherwise stated, the country of origin for all listed models is Hong Kong. Different countries will be listed second, and bolded.

Note that the NCHWA utilizes a pricing method called "Star Value©." Instead of specific dollar values, each car will be assigned a Star Value© to indicate rarity and potential price range. There are simply too many variables to place a "set" value on any model, so a range will be used instead to indicate where that particular model may fall on the secondary price scale. A +/- indicates where on that scale the value is approximated, while a number by itself would indicate the value falls in the middle of the Star Value. This is also an easy quick-glance method to determine rarity; the higher the number, the rarer the car. The value chart will be placed at the bottom of each page.

Option: Click the button to the left to download a printable copy of the Star Chart for easy reference (Microsoft Word or equivalent program required for viewing or download). It beats scrolling up and down when you're pricing your cars!
