Yeah I am not a big Pop Culture guy. The art is great, the subjects cleverly and creatively chosen, but I just don’t need Cheerios or AC/DC on my models. But I happily admit that is just me. Clearly, while I sang the praises of Boulevard over and over again, Mattel canceled that series but Pop Culture remains, so what do I know?
It is popular with a lot of collectors, and it is always interesting to see what they do, so I would not say I am complaining. Just not my thing.
So, here are a couple of castings that I really like, both part of the latest Pop Culture series that pays tribute to Archie, who is a red headed dude from a comic book series that I think my older sisters read back in the day. I didn’t, because if my sisters liked it, it was my rule that I didn’t.
So, here they are, opening the doors for us to show a couple of HW Garage versions from years past that we really like. That’s fun…

Hot Wheels ’67 Ford Bronco (2013 Pop Culture):
Surferrific in yellow with those snazzy stripes, but what is that red-headed guy who supposedly has two girlfriends doing on that? Better check for some more beach-combing beauties. Found ’em:
