Due to the fact that I am staying home, and so is Mattel, I had to piece together the latest mix of Hot Wheels Fast & Furious Premium. Glad I did, a it is a fantastic mix.
I posted this video last night, and was quickly reminded not to toy with Fast & Furious fans. After stating that the Lighting was “ a fantastic replica of a truck I could care less about”, I have heard a bit about it. I actually do like it, I just don’t like the truck. Design-wise it wasn’t Ford’s finest hour. But a great model.
But as you watch the video it is pretty obvious what I think about the Grand National. Because this set has been out for about a month or more, I have seen what most collectors are talking about, and it seems to be the Lightning. Considering the Grand National is such a cool 80’s car, and Hot Wheels FINALLY ditched the old casting for a far better new tool, I thought this would be the talk. It is with me at least, for whatever that is worth. In a year of fantastic new premium castings – isn’t that every year now? – the GN should be a standout.
Enjoy the video.
