        Wasn't there a whole Hot Wheels subline in the 90s where the whole point was that they could flip upside down and there'd be another, different looking car there?

      Damn. Didn't notice that. Just thought it was a cool car that could flip upside down. Almost got it for a friend's kid that is... I guess on the spectrum. But they don't seem to make a big deal about it and I wouldn't want to get him something like that.

      I was into Hot Wheels as a boy and I can confirm that I am autistic. I'm not into it now as an adult, though.

      All jokes aside they took a weird turn with the celebration racers.
      Year of the dragon and Valentines Day I can understand but then you have a what blindness appreciation day, international womens day, and autism awareness? I mean we're right on Talk Like a Pirate Day and may the 4th/Revenge of the 5th tier.

          A blindness appreciation day Hot Wheels would just be an empty package with the front and blurb written in brail.

          One of my parents also still thinks i dont have autism because i was "sociable as a kid" but what they dont understand is that the i had no social skills even tho i still wanted friends

          I can make friends/have friends/had friends growing up but keeping them is a whole nother' bag. I suck at keeping up with people and feel like I'll annoy them with even a "Hi!" so I just never speak to them again.

      It does have a driver. The middle bit spins around as part of the fidget mechanism and has a double sided driver inside of it

      Yeah, that's always irritated me. I always like cars with moulded-in drivers, so it feels like I'm getting ripped off.

      Atleast it wasnt a matchbox guy, you dont wanna know what they use as a carrying case.

      I've actually been gravitating more towards Matchbox lately. Realistic city vehicles have always been more interesting to me than crazy fantasy/sports cars. I recently got a 5-pack just for picrel because I love mundane city details that much.

        Ive only just begun to look at toy cars, a guy at work is a car buff so he is kinda talking and showing me thing since he knows i enjoy toys. I like the older obscure makes and models, datsun yugo etc. So i feel you on those boring mundane details.

    What makes it autistic though besides them slapping on an autism foundation on it?

    That's like going to the supermarket to find milk and seeing "Autismilk" with a puzzle label slapped on. It's still just milk.

    Thanks for the back blurb. When I was a kid I used to always keep the back blurb because it usually had cool facts about the cars on it.

      Its an autist car because its an "open ended play" style car meaning it can be played with on either side and because it has a fidget spinner mechanism in the middle which makes it able to be spun around
      Heres an article about it more

      Did you realize you had autism as a kid, or only when you grew up?

        My parents knew. I didn't really know or give a shit I had the sperg' until I was a teenager going down the furry rabbithole.

        Always kinda annoyed me that nobody knew how to talk or interact with me even if I try to be pretty social for an introvert. My dad used to say "Oh no anon! You don't have aspergers!" while purposefully doing things that annoyed me or ignored my feelings.

    The only time I've ever talked to another adult in the toy isle it was a hot wheels collector. Had a good 30 minute conversation about the state of the toys industry. Was genuinely a great experience until he showed me his penis.

      I'm beginning to work on some interiors of Matchbox cars. Since many of them have seat belt straps molded into the interiors as well as other features that many mainline cars don't have. Customization on Die-Cast is a really great hobby. Just make sure you research the right equipment you'll need. Paint removers, drill and drill bits to separate the car and base, etc.

    More companies should learn from this approach when they make these "diverse" tie-ins honestly, I'd buy this because it looks cool even without the autism gimmick.
