It is a common question whenever Hot Wheels releases yet another version of the grey FnF R34 Skyline:
When are we going to see the blue one?
Paul Walkers character drove two. The silver one with blue stripes, and a plain blue one. I don’t know when movie each is in, but based on the photos I am partial to the blue one. And it is finally coming, happily in premium form.
The blue R34 will be in the next Hot Wheels Entertainment assortment. And Hot Wheels marketing guru Jimmy Liu gave us a dramatic first look at Pittsburgh Nationals:
Nissan Skyline or Pittsburgh Skyline? #hotwheels #nissan #skyline #nissanskyline #hotwheelscollectors #hotwheelsdreamteam #hotwheelsofficial #hotwheelsgram #hotwheelsdaily #hotwheelsaddict #diecast #diecastcars #diecastcollector #diecast_daily #thelamleygroup #toygroup_alliance #toyplanet #toyartistry #toys #car
First off, Jimmy’s IG account is a must-follow. It is a happy given that there are a lot of car nerds on the Hot Wheels Design Team, but having an equally nerdacious car dork on the marketing team is important too. Jimmy is exactly that, and has gone to battle to get some of the gems we are going bonkers for, like Car Culture, to the pegs.
Jimmy is a huge R34 fan, so there is a fatherly sense of pride I am sure for him to debut the R34. And it looks awesome. Full front and rear details. Side too. It is the premium debut for the casting too. First time on Real Riders with a diecast chassis. Look for it very soon.
More to come from Nationals.
