1992 saw the first-ever Blimp issued in the Hot Wheels line, which would later be utilized for many promotions. A new series titled "The Gleam Team" was issued, and it featured cars that had "etched" bodies, which would somewhat refract the light on it. Also, the very popular (to this day!) '56 Flashsider casting was issued for the first time. NOTE: With the exception of the re-issues listed below, most 1992 models were carded on Collector Number cards, so this section features ONLY NON-COLLECTOR NUMBER models from 1992. You can access 1992's Collector Numbers (by number) in the "Collector Numbers" section of the Price Guide. |
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 Malaysia. 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.
