First Look: Hot Wheels Fast & Furious, Part 1...
It seems like we have been waiting quite awhile for these to show up, and the HW Fast & Furious cars are finally here.
A very interesting choice of cars, and I wonder if we will see any from the latest movie. We already know the Daytona will be coming in the mainline, but who knows if we will see any others.
But I will stop speculating and enjoy this set. Two models are upgrades from their basic counterparts (Charger and Supra), and they others stand on their own. I really like this set, not because they represent Fast & Furious cars, but because they look good.
So we will show off four of the eight cars today. The other four we will show soon. We didn't know how to separate the models into two logical parts, so we got excessively scientific and went with the light-colored cars today, and we will feature the dark-colored cars in a couple a few days later.
So the lighter-colored cars are three Japanese cars and a Chevelle. Here they all are, with their most closely-resembling counterparts. Only the Chevelle is a different casting, only because we don't own another Chevelle. So we used another '70 Chevelle casting.
So enjoy the pics, and go get the models you want on ebay if you aren't near a Walmart...
