Quoted from drfrightner:

Yeah funny one! But Stern has that license and they just did finish another Universal themed game. I heard one of the next on deck is Fast and Furious.
Personally I think Hot Wheels if it is true would be a great theme. Adult males who collect TOYS (hot wheels) might be inclined to add a Hot Wheels pinball game. I think the theme would transcend pinball honestly. Pinball is a toy as is a hot wheel... I think its a great theme.
I'll bet anyone right now the game sells over 1,000 copies due to the fact there are HOT WHEELS collectors out there who are totally nuts. https://www.caranddriver.com/features/g25616442/rarest-most-valuable-mattel-hot-wheels/
If someone would actually pay $175k for ONE HOT WHEEL they would pay $7000 for a HOT WHEEL Pinball game. Hot Wheels has conventions, designers sign autographs (don't know why anyone would want one or a pinball designer either) but they do. Hot wheels are a lot bigger from a collector standpoint than pinball.
A little car that can fit in your hand sells for 175k that is multiple times more than any pinball game.
Yes its a good theme and a lot of people who don't buy pinball games will be interested. I think its a HOME RUN for American Pinball Game. I talk to many people who want Willy Wonka because its a family themed game. Toy Story and Hot Wheels sitting side by side is pretty family friendly for a game room.
Lastly, I give them credit for thinking outside the box. Maybe this will launch other pinball games based on toys rather than movies.
Just please NO BARBIE... anything but Barbie unless Ken is involved them maybe! LOL

Quoted from drfrightner:

Hot Wheels by the numbers:
Over 6 BILLION hot wheels have been sold World Wide.
A Hot Wheel is sold every 10 seconds.
Most Valuable Hot Wheel sold for 175,000
Hot Wheels have been in production for over 50 years.
41 Million people grew up collecting Hot Wheels
Hot Wheels has conventions, collector guides, events and even TV have been produced creating full sized hot wheels
Warner Brothers is developing a Hot Wheels feature film in development as of this year.
Hot Wheels have been featured or had their own video game over 50 times
Hot Wheels are featured on every form or motorsports as sponsors
Here is the bottom line HOME RUN THEME... I can see right now every single toy store that sells vintage toys wanting one in the lobby. Do you actually think the guy who paid 175k for one hot wheel isn't buying one. This theme is bigger than pinball, and will find buyers outside of the pinball community just like Ghostbusters, Wizard of Oz, Metallica, ACDC, and Toy Story once that gets released.
I'll predict right now this game sells between 1000 and 2000 copies.
I have no doubt Mattel will promote this, and I think you will see a lot of national press for this game as well
Facts not fiction. Its a home run theme no matter what anyone thinks.

Not sure if you've mentioned this or not, but did someone pay $175k a single Hot Wheel?

Quoted from LTG:

1969 Pink, Rear-Loading Beach Bomb – $175,000
Don't know if it sold for that or valued at that.
LTG : )

I see my sarcasm was lost.
