I’m here at the Convention, and if you are reading this on Thursday night, there is a whole lot of people filing into the LAX Marriott Ballroom to celebrate 50 years of Hot Wheels.
There is of course a Dinner Model, and it was appropriately designed by the great Larry Wood, for this occasion. There is no better way to celebrate the brand. And the new Steam Punk Truck just screams Larry Wood.
Sadly, when I got the model to preview, I didn’t know the Dinner was celebrating 50 Years of Hot Wheels, as opposed to Larry himself, like the card says, but still. At least you can see the cool model. And yes, it goes beautifully with the Turbine Time.
Check this thing out:
Maybe Larry will talk about it tonight, but I don’t think anyone familiar with the history of brand would mistake who made it. It’s a beaut, and it’s the exclusive for tonight’s dinner.
More to come.
