Model: 1983 GMC Vandura Cargo Van
Line: Hot Wheels
Where to get it: I purchase this from eBay
Why is it in the collection: The A-Team was one of my favourite TV series back in the 80s which I always watch together with my dad on the couch that bring back wonderful memories especially the theme song. Hence I was very excited when Mattel released the 2013 SDCC A-Team Custom GMC Panel van that came with a “Weapon Case” which I immediately purchased on eBay.
In my opinion, Hot Wheels SDCC packaging are always very creative and presentable. The Custom GMC Panel van is “heavily” protected sitting inside the display with an explosive background. The presentation looks like an action movie scene rather than just an elegant display. The casting is heavy and what’s stands out is the weathering and mud splatter which make it a cool ride! This A-Team Van is definitely a must have in your Hot Wheels collection!
