Model: Hot Wheels ’15 Land Rover Defender Double Cab
Line: 2018 Basic New Models
Where to find it: It will hit with 2018 B Cases, and was just found in Nov 4th Kmart cases.
Why it’s in the collection: Because a Defender that looks like that will always be in my collection. Land Rover seems to go with Matchbox, but you won’t hear a complaint from if Hot Wheels wants to do one, just like you won’t hear a complaint from me if Matchbox wants to do a Datsun 510 rally car.
The Defender Double Cab seems to grab the attention of just about any car-minded person. It doesn’t matter what you specific interest is, it seems you will drop all to praise the Defender. But I’m right there with everyone.
And based on the response to this model, the masses feel that Hot Wheels nailed this one. It’s playful, thick stance, the tan color, plus the racing decals. I don’t see myself collecting every release of this one, unless they all look as good as this one.
