We divulged the three Japanese Cool Classics that Hot Wheels unveiled at Nationals last night, but for Lamley readers there was a much bigger bombshell. We knew the Cool Classics were coming. We didn't know this piece of news:
When Hot Wheels unveiled the 2014 Mainline, there were a few "TBD" on the list. We have since learned that one of them was Snoopy, but these other three are far more exciting, as revealed at the Nationals Convention:
Porsche 934 Turbo RSR
BMW E36 M3 Race
2015 Ford Mustang GT
The Mustang is a no-brainer, and we figured that was coming, but these other two come as a surprise. Coming off the buzz that the Porsche 993 created, Hot Wheels went back a few years to the late 70's to do another legendary Porsche, one that sits perfectly with the 993:
It is a shocker to know that within a year Hot Wheels has done both a 934 and a 993. If I was asked awhile ago what Porsches I would like to see Hot Wheels do, it would be these two along with the original 911. It is a stunner, and we can't wait to see it in person.
The same goes for BMW. 2002, E30, and now the E36:
This is surely another treat, and like the 934 to 993, the E36 is perfect compliment to the E30. The funny thing? We kind of heard this was coming. A BMW enthusiast contacted us late last year saying he called Mattel to ask if they were doing more BMW's, and the operator said she would get back to him. She called back and said the E36. We thought she was just confusing a new color of the E30, but it sounds like she wasn't. Maybe we are on to something. Just call Mattel if you want to know what is coming. Sounds easy, eh?
So what do you think? Actually we don't care. We are way two excited for these two...
