First Look: Hot Wheels Daredevil Racers 5-pack '12 Ford Fiesta...
Ah, the completist in me. A rather generic version of a casting I like that I paid over $5 for because it was in a 5-pack. The key term being "casting I like". That is the trap. Mattel knows that a 5-pack with four generics might benefit from a fifth popular licensed model. Hence, the Fiesta, which previously sported Ken Block attire, jumps in, and I buy. Without it, I don't even give it a second thought.
But I am in the "more the merrier" camp, so if we get an extra model in a 5-pack, I will happily pick it up. Which I did, and here it is.
The color and the design are fine, and appropriate for this little racer, but don't compare to the Ken Block versions. But I am a sucker for the 10sp wheels, and they look great here, as they do on almost all models. So it has that going for it, which is nice.
