First Look: Hot Wheels Mig Rig...
So when we posted the first images of Hot Wheels 2013 Batch M, we were surprised to see the excitement about the Mig Rig. But with a casting like that, a hearty "what the hell do we know?" suffices.
We would most surely welcome comments from many of you on the appeal of the Mig Rig. We just don't know. The model doesn't particularly excite us, but that is the case with a lot of Hot Wheels cars.
We know that this model was designed by retired legend Larry Wood, so we get that excitement. Maybe that fact helps the model tap into that nostalgic Hot Wheels vibe that gets so many RLC models sold.
Maybe it is the design itself. An old school racing truck. Whatever it is, many are bound to snag one or a few. But they might be in for a bit of a surprise...
The model has a plastic body.
Yes, plastic. I have never been that bothered by plastic bodies, but many people have. And plus I haven't really been tested. None of my favorites have gone plastic. So it will be very interesting to see what kind of reaction collectors give once they find this one on the pegs.
Maybe it was done for racing purposes. The metal base, plastic body combo has done well before, or so I have read...
What are your thoughts?
