I love the idea.
Assuming that they would include a segment featuring the toy line(which they most likely would), it'll most likely be based on convention footage with a handful of collector interviews. Sing the praises of Mattel in front of a camera and they'll air it. All of these wonderful tracks that we've built using homemade 3D printed pieces and non-Mattel components would be avoided like the plague. If their name is on it, they're going to tow the company line, BIG time.
Not so sure about this anymore...but kinda what I expected. One season is all it'll get.
I watched the first episode of this last night and it's exactly the Pimp My Ride show I expected it to be. Thankfully, the life stories of inspiration are limited but they're there. So all in all, this show could have been called anything and it still works.
The only "Hot Wheels" thing that I saw was midway through the build, they picked out a casting and told the builders to use an idea/feature from the casting in their real car build...like big spoilers or blown engine or whatever.
This isn't appointment television but if you need something on while you're sitting around on the couch checking out the latest discussions here on the RLD website, it'll do just fine. But if you're looking for something Hot Wheels, you'll probably be disappointed outside of the awesome brand-heavy set they're using.
So all we can do is hope that someone creative is seeing what all us racers are doing and actually decide to make a show about that. I mean, we build, we create, we design, we have fun, and we all have some sad/happy/inspirational tale we can tell so why not??
I guess its up to us then, why share the fun...lola 3 week buildoff? vid your own stuff? invite only a few to start?intriguing concept
so, How would ya start a mod competition show?
