The Hot Wheels Dream Team feed on IG is on a roll.
After posting a ridiculous new deco for the 180SX (it’s below), late tonight emerged the new-for-2018 Land Rover Defender Double Cab.
If the Matchbox Defender is any indication, this model is going to be a massive hit. And it looks to be beautifully executed.
But Hot Wheels through in a little twist as well. This model will debut in the basic range, with basic wheels, but for this pic, the Defender is sporting the new fifteen52 off-road Real Rider wheel. For this pic, Hot Wheels Marketing guru and toy nerd @toy.inc on IG swapped out the basic wheels to show the new Real Rider. And like the Defender, it is pretty awesome. He sent me some closeups:
It seems Hot Wheels has been going for variety and realism in their new wheels, both basic and Real Riders. These new wheels are no exception. Start thinking about all the castings these will work on, because you will most likely see them in the future.
Check out that tread!
Just to reiterate, these will NOT be on the mainline Defender, but they are coming in 2018 as well. Keep your eyes open.
Oh yeah, that Advan 180SX:
Excited for 2018?
