First Look: Hot Wheels Flying Customs Porsche 935...
Sorry everyone for the late post today. Late or not, we have a pretty one to show off today.
We will start with a question:
Are the Flying Customs pegwarming as bad in your area as they are in ours? The pegs are stuffed here. We ask, because when you look at this Porsche today, you see how great the FC cars can look. And with some great models on the docket for this series, including the Kenmeri Skyline, you wonder if we will get to them.
If our area is any indication, this series, like the Hot Ones before, is not going to last long. It just has not generated any excitement among consumers. Collectors might like them, but non-collectors don't, and that is why so many continue to hand around. So with Boulevard on the way out, and we cannot see FC lasting past this year, the focus moves to the upcoming Cool Classics line. We will just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, we wait and see if Flying Customs makes it to the end of 2013. With models like the 935, we sure hope it does. The poor 935 debuted in the last batch of the Hot Wheels Racing Series, to limited release, and now resides in the FC lineup that might not even make it to retail. Maybe it needs some time in the mainline in order for everyone to get a shot at it. It is a beautiful casting...
