As part of the Lamley Awards for 2018, I am featuring a few models that will sadly go overlooked as the Awards are announced. They are the Underrateds. Last year Hot Wheels released a Forza mix in its Replica Entertainment line. Lots of cool models, but the model I was looking most forward to was … Continue reading The Underrateds: Hot Wheels Circuit Legends ’16 Ford GT Race
