While on the prowl for a couple of Matchbox items for my Lamley partner, I was shocked to see a 5-pack I had never seen before, and alas, real car castings!
Hot Wheels 5-packs are not an item I get too excited about. I know there will be 2-3 packs that interest me, with a handful of single models that will force me to drop $5 for a whole pack. The rest are usually filled with non-licensed models that don't appeal too much to me as a collector, but surely will grab the attention of the kid being carted by in the store.
But this one had real cars, all muscle cars, so I picked it up. At Kohl's. At their ridiculous prices ($8.99, but on sale for $6.99! Hooray??).
Today, in interest of time (the Lamley offices are undergoing a remodel starting tomorrow, and I need to prepare), I will post the pics, and you can make your judgements. It will be easy to tell which model is my favorite (Superbird) based on the amount of photos I took. But two thoughts:
- I hope this is the last time I have to take pics of the awful Camaro Z28 casting. The newer '85 IROC casting should replace this model forever.
- I might be in the minority, but I like the OH5's on the Superbird. And I really like them when they are are orange and rolling with an orange car. Cool cool cool...
Alright, check out the pics and tell me what you think...
(And if you are interested, you can get one on ebay right now...)
