First Look: Hot Wheels Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Set, Part 2...
No need to duplicate our thoughts on the entire set. You can read them in Part 1.
Here are the four more-current Mustang castings that are part of the 8-car 50th Anniversary set. Not too much to write home about here, outside of the '07. It is rather strange to see three of the four later Mustang models are customized racing variations. Of course Mustang has a racing heritage, but that is trumped by the Mustang's true heritage: a speedy street cruiser.
That is why, with a very strong lineup of current Mustang castings, like the Super Snake, Laguna Seca, and Shelby GT500, it is very odd to see what they chose to include. The Cobra has surely seen better days, and we would be fine with one of the custom racers along with one of the three models we mentioned previously. Don't get us wrong, the '12 and '13 Customs look great in their respective decos, we are just baffled by the choice.
Oh well, at least we are keeping the '07...
