You might have noticed that Instagram caught fire last night. Blame Team Transport. The Hot Wheels unveiled “The Board” last night at the RLC Party at Nationals, and while there was a lot to talk about, Team Transport grabbed the attention.
The Hot Wheels Team will always bring some goodies with them to the Conventions, and display them on the board. It is usually a mix of premium and basic models, in several states of development. Among the sneaks were some early First Shots of the Mazda 787B, Nissan Skyline R32 and others, as well as upcoming RLC, Car Culture and Basics. But the main attraction was the first mix of Team Transport, due this summer.
As they did at the last Convention, the HW Team granted me a few minutes with the board before they unveiled it, allowing me to shoot a series of preview videos with Jimmy Liu in marketing. I will show those in the future, but I can show some of the pics I took now. And we might as well start with Team Transport.
I will let Jimmy get into all the details in the upcoming videos, but suffice to say this set is a doozy. It is actually hard to believe these were actually done.
Here are a few other items I photographed. I didn’t shoot all of them, just a few that are a little further out in development.
Car Culture Shop Trucks Mix:
Upcoming premium models. The S15 Silvia, Mazda 787B, and Acura NSX GT3 are First Shots (paint and wheels are only used for testing), and the Charger is new.
Lastly, the removable engine cover on the 787B, due later in Car Culture:
More details coming. Thanks to Jimmy and the HW Team for letting me shoot these. Stay tuned for more Nationals coverage coming. For kicks here are some other quick shots of the board:
