Just received my copy of the 4th edition of Hot Wheels Variations, The Ultimate Guide. I gotta say, this is the best edition on Variations I've ever seen! Author Michael Zarnock has really outdone himself here! The pictures are so cool, and the listings are precise, detailed, and accurate. I think the cover with the Mike Zarnock car is fantastic. There's more about the Zarnock car on page 5. Zarnock is a pioneer in this area of Hot Wheels, and I think it's really neat that Mattel honored Zarnock for his contributions to the hobby by producing a Hot Wheels replica of the dragster he raced with years ago. There's so much great stuff packed in here - 5,500 cars and 3,100 photos. If you are a Hot Wheels variations collector like me, THIS is the book you need to have. You need not look no further than this bible on variations!
An essential Tool for the serious and not so serious Hot Wheels Collector.Contains a very large amount of information about many variations of different Hot Wheels releases and as a tool it may pay for itself very quickly as it will help you differentiate between valuable variations and common easy to obtain models.I regard it and its predecessors as essential parts of my Library and yes, I constantly refer back to these books.Well worth buying.
My mom loves this book it shure helped her for what I bought this book for n it's cheaper then getting it in a book store is a great n cheap place I shure would recommend them to other people n there products
This is a good book to use to help with finding out which Hot Wheel toy cars could have a value. But I did not pay attention to the years covered so still have to return to internet to find out info on some.
Bought this "used". Couldn't prove it by me. Excellent condition and a great price. Best hot wheels guide I've run across. Would have liked to see more "variations" but there are probably too many to include. Recommend to anyone interested in hot wheels, even if only for the photographs.
This book is a must buy if you're a Hot Wheels collector. This book is jam packed with info and pictures and many years worth ofHot Wheels, the variations and their current value. I highly recommend ANY book written by Michael Zarnock. The man KNOWShis subject, HOT WHEELS collecting. BUY IT, YES I DID, you should too.
It's a nice book that has lots of pictures, but I did not like how the glossary was set up, and for the cars with several variations on them more pictures should be added for these types of cars, it's confusing to read and seeing a picture of the car with (a), then (b), then (c) and so on down to (d).. By the time you get down to the notes for (d) its hard to figure out what the car has or has not..
I've known author Michael Zarnock for almost 10 years. He is an amazing Hot Wheels resource and an all-around good guy. His latest book is mind-boggling, featuring 3,100 color photographs and 5,500 car listings. You will not find a better book on Hot Wheels variations on the market -- guaranteed. And if don't find what you are looking for you can always reach out to Michael for help. I've done just that and he has always provided assistance. He lists his email address right in the book. Now that's an author who is passionate about his subject matter. Good guy. Great book.
