Some Hot Wheels castings are accurate replicas of commercially available cars. Others are customized in the half-century-old American tradition of hot-rods, street specials and funny-cars. Still others are like nothing ever seen on four wheels, including, in this case a toilet. Hot Seat is a Hot Wheels vehicle based on a jumbo-sized toilet, judging by the "plumber's mate" plunger that serves as a steering wheel. Yup, the driver sits IN, not on the pan. Guaranteed to bring out the hysterical giggles in 8-year-olds of all ages...
Deemed inappropriate for children, this casting met a sad end in 2004 and will be never seen again. You will be missed, Hot Seat.
The Hot Seat has come out in the following versions:
