Hotwheels Collectors, get ready for Mattel’s release of the Hotwheel Stars and Stripes series.

Mattel’s Hotwheels Stars and Stripes series is typically released each summer and focuses on American cars. In this article, the Diecast Republic team will review the 2024 releases, predict their popularity, and give our opinion on resale prospects. One cool feature about this series, is that when you place the complete series side by side, the cards collectively form a unified image. This year, the entire series comes together to create a comic book-style American flag.

The 2013 SRT Viper is the first in the 2024 Stars and Stripes series.

  • The first car in the set is the 2013 SRT Viper.
  • It is painted red and has graphics similar to the comic book flag on the cards. SRT, Dodge, and Mopar logos can be seen throughout.
  • There is also some head and tail light detailing.
  • Expect to see this car for around $6 on the resale market.

The 2013 COPO Camaro is the second Hotwheels Stars and Stripes series car.

  • At Diecast Republic, we’re a fan of the second car in this series, the 2013 COPO Camaro.
  • This car features blue paint and mismatched white and red rims.
  • COPO and Camaro graphics can be seen on the side of the vehicle.
  • The stars and stripes decals also give this card a similar feel to the card it is on.
  • This car will perform similarly to the Viper or slightly better, given the Camaro’s likeability.

The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the third car in the series.

  • Hotwheels collectors will appreciate the third car in the 2024 Hotwheels Stars and Stripes series is the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
  • It comes in a grey paint scheme, which deviates from the red, white, and blue aesthetic but still looks good.
  • The car features red rims, Mopar, Dodge, and Demon logos.
  • The red and blue stripes are also similar to those on the card.
  • This car should perform like the Camaro and Viper; however, we have seen Challengers become very popular so that it could have a higher upside.

The 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 is the third car in the series.

  • The fourth car in the lineup is the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500.
  • This car features white paint with black stars, blue and red stripes, and black rims.
  • Shelby, Ford, and Cobra logos can be seen on the side of the vehicle.
  • The stripes are also in line with the rest of the vehicles, and the headlight detailing is a nice touch.
  • We expect the Shelby to perform the best out of the group given its notoriety.
  • The Shelby Cobra is a nice car, and the name is enough to make people want to purchase it.
  • We wouldn’t expect to see this car for more than $10.

Look for the 2020 Corvette to complete the 2024 Stars and Stripes Hotwheels series.

  • For all you diecast collectors, get ready for the the last car in the set – the 2020 Corvette.
  • It comes in a darker red paint and is the only car not to feature its own manufacturer branding on the side. Instead, we are treated to a white Hit Wheels flame across the side of the vehicle.
  • This car does keep the overall stars and stripes aesthetic.
  • We expect the Corvette to perform at the same level as the Viper.
  • Although the C8 is a great car, it hasn’t been as popular as some of the other muscle cars, likely due to its supercar aesthetic.
  • Overall, the Stars and Stripes set is great for those who are fans of American Muscle.
  • While there isn’t a car going for a massive amount over retail, these cars could be good to pick up and try to make a few bucks.
