Don’t you love surprises? No sneak peeks, no leaked photos, no hints at all. One day last week a few collectors walked into various Walmarts and found a brand new Hot Wheels truck hanging on the pegs. Most of us pay little attention to the trucks, but this one was definitely different. And for those in the know, like my friend Jay Kho, it was a monumental find. And a bloody cool surprise from Hot Wheels. Jay, a DR30 Skyline owner who is well-versed in all things Japanese Auto Culture, will take it from here:
This might come as a shock.
You can marvel at the attention to detail too. The great wave of kanagawa is present on the trailer, and using the First Edition Mad Manga fits perfectly as well. It is by far the most true bosozoku Hot Wheels has done.
(Yes, it’s on eBay.)
