First Look: Hot Wheels Jetson's Capsule Car...
I just want to get this model out of the way. Coming off a weekend where I attended my favorite car show and got to enjoy the ins and outs of why I collect toy cars in the first place, it is bit rough to return and show images of a cartoon car.
But I will, because we are all curious.
So here it is, the Jetson's Capsule Car. One of the models that gets certain collectors all tizzied up because it is different, which will in turn make them scoop up everyone they find. And soon they will have a stash that they won't know what to do with. I throw this in with the Flintstones car, the Mystery Machine, and a few others (but not KITT. KITT is cool). These are models that I get why they are done, but there is nothing in me that connects with them.
All I remember about the Jetson's is always turning the channel when it was on. I don't know if I have ever watched a full episode. But that is me, you are you, and you may like it. So here it is.
The only thing I find interesting? The model is clearly made to intertwine two different bases. One with wheels and one without. That should make it easy enough to switch the model to the no-wheel version for upcoming Retro in 2014. There was that interesting enough?
(You want it? Find it at Wheel Collectors...)
