015 HWC Nationals


If you’re like us, you can hardly wait to get to the Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky, this month. For Red Line Club members, this means we’re in the home stretch for the RLC Party!

What: Red Line Club Party
When: Friday, March 27, 2015 at approx. 9:00 p.m.
Where: Hyatt Regency Lexington – Lexington, KY

Getting In

The party will begin once the Charity Auction is over, or at 9:00 p.m., whichever is later. Since it’s a Red Line Club membership benefit, only 2014/2015 Red Line Club members are allowed to enter the party and purchase the RLC party car.

If you joined the Red Line Club for 2014/2015 before September 18, 2014, your RLC membership number should appear on your Nationals badge, and you’ll be admitted to the party.

If you recently joined the Red Line Club (September 18 or later), make sure you bring:

  1. Your RLC membership Order Summary print out. Go into your “My Account” section in the Hot Wheels Shop, and go to the Order Status page. Print out the Order Summary which reflects your purchase of the current year’s membership. Or you can print out the Order Summary email. You will have received both an Order Confirmation and an Order Summary email when you purchased your membership. The Order Summary email — which should be the second email you received and also includes your name in the information displayed — is the one to print out.
  2. Your Collectors Nationals badge.
  3. A photo ID.
  4. Please make sure the names on all three of these match so you can jump into the fun as soon as possible.

Party Car/Raffle Tickets

As you enter the party, you have a chance to purchase the always-hot RLC party car for $10.00 (cash only!). (See previous examples below: the Custom ’38 Ford C.O.E. from the 2014 Nationals and the Noodlist from the 2014 Convention.) . Also, we’ll be raffling off some very cool Hot Wheels prizes later in the party. When you enter the party, you’ll be given one raffle ticket for free. More RLC raffle tickets will also be available for RLC members to purchase if you like.

If you want even more RLC raffle tickets and more chances at winning a prize, don’t forget to bring HWC and RLC cars — still packaged — to open. Why? You’ll have a chance to open the packaged HWC Series cars, RLC sELECTIONs cars, or RLC membership cars that you bring at the “Opening Party.” For each one you bring and open at the party (limit of 10 per guest), you’ll receive one FREE RLC raffle ticket!

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?

  1. Your Nationals name badge (the badge you receive when you register)
  2. $10 (cash only!) to buy the party car
  3. Your RLC membership Order Summary and a photo ID (if you joined after September 18)

Who can attend the RLC Party? Can I go to the party if I’m here for the Collectors Nationals?

Only 2014/2015 Red Line Club members who have a paid ticket to the 15th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals will be admitted. You can’t join the Red Line Club at the event, but you can join now.

I have five RLC memberships. Can I bring four people to the party?

No. You can only use one of your memberships to get in, and you can only buy one RLC party car regardless of how many memberships you have.

My friend/spouse/parent/child has an RLC membership that I paid for, so the membership has my name on it. Can he/she get in? Can he/she buy a party car?

If your friend/spouse/parent/child has an RLC membership in your name, you can both come in — but you can only purchase one party car.

Can I bring my kids to the party?

Yes. However, they won’t receive any of the RLC benefits (even if you have a membership in their name). RLC members have to be 18 or older, so we can’t honor a membership for a minor.

Will there be a party car?

Yes, but we try to keep it a secret until the day of the RLC party.

How much does the party car cost? How many can I buy?

The party car is $10 each (cash only!) and is limited to one per person who must be an RLC member.

For the Opening Party, where do we get cars to open? Do you buy them at the event? Or bring them from home?

The eligible cars must be HWC or RLC editions. You can bring them from home or possibly buy them in the room-to-room trading or elsewhere at the show.

How many RLC raffle tickets do I get for opening up an HWC/RLC car? Can I open more than 10 HWC/RLC cars?

You’ll receive one ticket per car, up to 10 maximum. You can open as many as you like, but we’ll only give you 10 tickets maximum.

Do I have to be present to win a raffle prize?


The party is always a great time and a great reward for RLC members. Looking forward to seeing you there!
