This may not have the stop-in-your-tracks impact that the RLC Toyota 2000GT announcement had, but this is another announcement we are pretty happy about.
Mattel has given RLC members a little sneak peak of a model to come, and this time it is the Toys R Us Mail-In promotional model, and it is the fantastic ’88 Jeep Wagoneer that was released last year in the Boulevard line. Once again, we will adhere to Mattel’s request that we not show their images (they are for RLC members only), but just imagine this model:
…with this deco (and a #4 instead of a #1):
The model looks fantastic. The rims are the same on the Wagoneer pictured above, only red, like the Chevelle. We are loving that Hot Wheels is branching out in the models they use for promotions. We really liked the Chevelle, are ok with the ’69 Camaro, but LOVE the Wagoneer. There are still two models to be unveiled, and we are excited to see what they are.
We don’t know the details of the promotion, but we assume it involves buying 20 models and sending in receipts and card backs. We haven’t participated in the TRU promotion before, but we surely will now.
