hello,
any favorite automotive or others sponsor you wish to see in your hotwheels?

for me, i wish to see:
monster energy
redbull

for now, i enjoy to see this nice sponsor in nice car color. i like it much better than in red escort.


i wonder, if hotwheels allowed anyhow put any sponsor in any cars or need sponsor/ car manufacture approval first.

It would be a pretty good bet that Mattel would need permission from both the sponsor and car manufacture.
Mattel would be facing some legal issues.
Some sponsors might not want to be on certain cars just like certain manufacturers would not want certain sponsors on their cars.

They need approval because they need to license usage of other companies IP (logo, name, etc).

HW as a rule doesn't license energy drink, alcohol or cigarette logos - ever notice they've got lots of classic oil company liveries and don't touch the rest of the classics?

I'd like to see Veilside, RWB, Liberty Walk, Rocket Bunny, Spoon, Mugen/M-TECH, JUN, HKS, TOM'S, Mine's, RE Amemiya etc

I would like to see Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, or nascar as a sponsor on my hotwheels. :thumbsup:

Mattel is right to stay away from energy drinks, though soft drinks can't be much better.
I predict they'll down in history as a really bad trend, like LSD or playing in traffic with scissors.
