Hot Wheels has given collectors a mystery to solve.
There is a lot to be excited about with this one. Great color, great deco, excellent casting, and a perfect choice to sport an Italian Police livery. No matter what, a great model.
But then a Lamley follower on Instagram, @gorditoshotwheels, sent us this interesting image:
Yep, that is the Treasure Hunt symbol on the card, just like it is on the other Treasure Hunts of 2015. It must mean that this beauty is this batch’s Regular Treasure Hunt, and easily the best looking Treasure Hunt of 2015.
But there is one other indicator. That symbol should also be on the car. And we know people have looked and looked, but to no avail. It doesn’t appear to be anywhere.
So is the Fiat a TH? Is the symbol hidden anywhere? Chris, aka gorditoshotwheels, inspected his over and over again, and thinks the symbol might be KIND OF there. Is it this at the end of the yellow checkered pinstripe? Here is a closeup:
Interesting eh? I never thought I would be analyzing a small symbol this closely, but it appears the small portion at the top of the flame is there, followed by two larger flames below. It isn’t perfect, and it obviously is missing the circle around it, but it is similar.
So what do you think? Is the Fiat an upcoming Regular TH? Is Mattel having a little fun with Regular TH-hating collectors? Is it more clear than we think?
If it is a TH, it is the best of the year by a mile. If it isn’t, it is still one of the better models released this year. Either way, it goes into the collection.
What do you think? TH or not?
