|Hot Wheels 2016 Retro Entertainment Batch A|
Just a quick heads up that the first batch of Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment for 2016 has been released, and it is now out at Wheel Collectors:
This is an interesting batch. For long time collectors it is probably a bit of a disappointment, considering almost all, outside of maybe a slight difference here and there, are essentially reissues of previous models. My only thought on why they did it this way is to give others a shot at some of the models that are now hard to acquire, the Ecto-1 being at the top of the list. It could also be a licensing thing, or laziness. Who knows, but it is obvious some of them will be popular.
We can at least say the Ecto-1 is affordable again, and that is a good thing.
We will wait and see what Batch B is all about…
