I did this showcase last weekend, but haven’t shared it here:
The Veyron had a bit of a reputation as a pegwarmer for most of its time in the Hot Wheels mainline. That changed dramatically when word got out that the casting had been retired. Demand began to grow, and as that was talked about, interest in the casting spread, creating even more demand. Now certain releases fetch big amounts of money.
There really is no reason to argue with what collectors want to pursue. That is up to them. But the popularity of casting begs the question: Is this a nice casting?
I am not a huge fan, but that still didn’t deter me from collecting the casting. I guess I bought in as well.
So where do you stand?
