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…
