UPDATE!! – December 30, 2017
I screwed up. I forgot one important licensed premium new model, the 60’s Ford Econoline Pickup, and I thank many of you for pointing that out. For that reason, I am resetting the poll with the addition. If you already voted, please vote again. Sorry for missing this, but I think it is important to be accurate.
Here is a photo until I can take one in the same style as this post:
My super late Lamley Awards polls continue, this time looking at new PREMIUM models.
Last year I combined all the new Hot Wheels licensed new models, including basic and premium. But this year it just seems right to separate. Car Culture has really turned into something separate from everything else Hot Wheels does. It means that in many ways any new model coming from Car Culture outshines any basic counterpart. So we might as well pit these heavyweights against each other.
So while quantity surely wasn’t hefty, quality certainly was. Five of the new models came from Car Culture, while the 6th was from the Car Culture-esque Forza Assortment in HW Entertainment.
So get your vote in on which of these six models you think was the best. Who knows, a couple of these might end up in the “Model of the Year” poll. It’ll be a doozy of a list to be sure.
Vote here and if you need a refresher, pics of all six models are below, in the same order.
