First Look: Hot Wheels Color Shifter VW Drag Bus...
Yeah, we fell victim to the hype...
I happened across this Color Shifter at a local Walmart, and because of the frenzy around it, I picked it up.
It is a Drag Bus.
It is plastic.
It doesn't open.
It is plastic for a purpose. Changing color on metal is a little harder to do (usually involved fire or paint), and this is a Color Shifter. I always laugh when I see comments about the atrocity the plastic Drag Bus is, as if it will replace in the metal Drag Bus in premium lines. It won't. It is plastic because Color Changers are plastic.
So, I bought it, and now we are showing it. It makes for a fun model, as there is a lot of mass to change colors. We get it.
Now the question. Considering the metal Drag Bus is way too involved and heavy for the mainline, would you accept this plastic one as a dollar model on the pegs?
By the way, for you guys keeping score, this is the first Drag Bus we have ever featured on Lamley. Crazy, eh?
(You can try to find the Drag Bus at Walmart or Target, or just go to ebay...)
