Lamley Showcase: Hot Wheels Entertainment Forza Motorsports…

You that slight complaint that gets murmured here and there about Car Culture?  The castings are amazing, the decos spot-on, and the card art is the best ever, but…the lack of front and rear details is a  tiny little bummer.

Well it appears Hot Wheels Entertainment has you covered.  Soon after the release of Gran Turismo in the Entertainment line – not to be confused with the set currently being devoured at your local Walgreens – later this month in the US, Forza will hit.  And Hot Wheels is allowing us a little preview.

Hot Damn.

The full photo showcase is coming in a bit, but we start with the YouTube feature, including the full DLM:

Full photo feature coming soon…

UPDATE: It has been pointed out by several of you that I botched the pronounciation of “Giulia” pretty badly.  Yep, I did.  I have done it several times before (re: Renault) and I promise I will do it many times more.  If you are concerned however, you can watch this video to know I have pronounced it correctly before:

  1. Yikes jarring is a strong word. I can only say this:

    When you do these videos, and you are trying to make sure all goes well – without cuts, because you are opening the models – mistakes are made. Just to ease your concerns, here is a video I did awhile ago where I pronounced it correctly:

  2. John… The significance of the '74 Ford Falcon XB coupe is that it is a classic Australian musclecar.
    Eric Bana even did a doco on his own XB that he destroyed in a classic car rally here in Australia.
    For Australians the XB is iconic, but on a global scale I couldn't really talk to the significance other than it would be a rare musclecar globally since it was only manufactured and sold in Australia.
    BTW… the '74 XB Falcon was the base for the black “Interceptor” in the original MAD MAX films, furthering the cult status of the XB coupe.

  3. I should clarify I meant the significance of the Falcon to the Forza game. The significance of the actual Falcon isn't lost on me. I have too many friends from Australia that make sure I am aware. Such a fantastic car and beautiful here in this series.

  4. Just found this lot here in Lima, Peru, they ahve arrived at a chain of local stores, and I was wondering… the girl at the store said she had receivied 20 last night (2 boxes, 1 lot of Forza Motorsport and 1 lot of HALO), and the 20 cars were on the pegs when I was there. But instead of there being 2 of each model, there were 3 Falcons, 3 Camaros, 3 Lamborghinis, and 1 Alpha Romeo – no Ford GT. So, as I said, I was wondering… is that normal?

    When the Forza set first showed up at a certain store a couple of months ago, other collectors went there to find out that there were no Ford GTs and only a handful of Alpha Romeos… it was attributed to scalpers who in the past have already bribed the salespersons in that particular store so that they would set apart certain models and only sell them to them. But seeing these ones on a different store got me thinking… either they are coming like that from Mattel themselves, or what this chain of stores has got is whatever remnants were left from the other store that had them first…

    What’s been the experience of people in other countries regarding this particular set?
