Alright, fine. Because so many of you asked. The Hot Wheels and Majorette Mercedes-Benz AMG-GT’s, together. In peace and harmony.
I will post the pics, and you can do what you want. It is always interesting to see the reactions. Ultimately we all like what we like, so deciding definitely on which is better is a moot point. Some of you will be shocked hear others say the Hot Wheels is better. Others will wonder what some are looking at when they say the Majorette is better. And of course a good handful of you will scour at me when I say I like both.
Which I do. Hot Wheels and Majorette take two different approaches, and these models most surely fall into that. Complaining that the Hot Wheels has no opening doors is the same today as complaining it doesn’t have a real engine. So for me, if it comes down to execution, I think both are really well done.
Sure, the Majorette has a much cleaner tampo application, and the Hot Wheels has much better wheels and stance (even with those Y5’s). And right now – a part of Majorette’s approach that I really like – there are far more Majorette releases, even with a Hot Wheels recolor coming soon. Then again, long-time Hot Wheels collectors will prefer the size of the Hot Wheels, and the same can be said for long-time Majorette collectors.
So yeah, you can go back and forth. So for good measure I threw in the release from UCC Coffee in Japan, which is one stunner of a premium model. Put both next to that and you can see that there is no slouch among the three, especially when it comes to the silhouette.
I’m just happy all three are out there, especially with Majorette hitting the US soon. It’s all good. And rumor is it is going to get even better.
